7 Things to Know About the iPhone 7 iOS 11.4.1 Update



The iPhone 7 iOS 11.4.1 update is a point release, but it could have a significant impact on your device’s performance.

Apple’s latest iOS 11 update is much smaller than iOS 11.4 and comes with important bug fixes, security patches, and a new security feature. While iOS 11.4.1’s intentions are good, the update is causing problems for some iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners.

iPhone 7 users who adopted the software update are complaining about UI lag, battery drain, and issues with various first and third-party applications.

It’s difficult to predict exactly how iOS 11.4.1 will perform on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus so you’ll need to be extremely careful if you choose to download it on your device.

If you’re coming from Apple’s iOS 11.4 update, your iOS 11.4.1 download is a few hundred megabytes. It should take you 10 minutes or less to get it up and running.

If you skipped iOS 11.4 or any previous version(s) of iOS 11, your iOS 11.4.1 download will be much bigger and your installation will take longer.

This guide will take you through steps iPhone 7 should take prior to downloading the iOS 11.4.1 update. Our walkthrough also goes over a few other things iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users should know about bugs and performance issues, the iOS 11 jailbreak situation, and the iOS 11.4 downgrade.

Before we get to all that, we want to provide you with some feedback about the iPhone 7 iOS 11.4.1 update’s performance. If you’re currently on the fence about iOS 11.4.1, our impressions could help get you to one side of the fence or the other.

Your iOS 11.4.1 download shouldn't take long to complete. It took about two and a half minutes to download on our iPhone 7. The installation process took a little bit longer.

The iOS 11.4.1 installation took about six minutes on the iPhone 7, about the same as iOS 11.4. We didn't run into any problems during the installation.

If you're coming from an older version of iOS 11, the download and installation will take longer. In some cases, a lot longer.

If you need more information about the iOS 11.4.1 installation process and download, take a look at our walkthrough. It'll guide you through it all.

We've been using iOS 11.4.1 on the iPhone 7 for several days now and we haven't run into any major issues with the software. 

Battery life is currently holding up. Connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular data, GPS) remains stable and we haven't noticed any of the FaceTime Audio issues that gave us trouble on earlier versions of iOS 11.

We've haven't run into any major problems with our first and third party applications nor have we seen any random reboots. 

The lag we noticed on earlier versions of iOS 11 hasn't popped up yet and we haven't noticed any freezes, stutters, or lockups. For the moment, iOS 11.4.1 feels fast and stable on our iPhone 7.

If you own an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus and you're feeling leery about upgrading, take your time. iOS 11.4.1 isn't going anywhere. Most of you will want to install it for the bug fixes and security patches, but Apple won't force you to make a move.

If you need additional feedback, take a look at our list of reasons to and not to install iOS 11.4.1 on your iPhone right now

    Good to get 3D touch app switcher back in the iOS 11.1. New emoji sets are good. The fluid wallpapers are so sleek I love the designs. And most important Apple Team has fixed KRACK WiFi vulnerability which was most important thing in this update. Overall I am really enjoying iOS 11 so far. Thanks for writing Adam really enjoyed your article.
