iOS 11 is barely two weeks old, and it’s already received
its second update. Apple on Tuesday released iOS 11.0.2,
one that you’ll want to install if you’re a frequent user of
FaceTime or often make phone calls.
iOS 11.0.2, according to the release notes, “Fixes an issue
where crackling sounds may occur during calls for a small
number of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus devices.” The update also
fixes a problem that causes photos to be hidden, and fixes
an issue with S/MIME encrypted emails, where attachments
would not open.
Before installing the update, back up your iPhone. The update
won’t install unless you have a Wi-Fi connection. When that’s
done, you can install the update by tapping the Settings app
and then General > Software Update. Then tap the Download
and Install link at the bottom of the release notes. (For some
reason, Download and Install was dimmed for me, which
meant I wasn’t able to activate the installation even though
I was connected to Wi-Fi. I had to disconnect and reconnect
to Wi-Fi to activate the link.) The download is 277.3MB.
