4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 11.4.1 & 8 Reasons You Should



Install iOS 11.4.1 for AirPlay 2

Install iOS 11.4.1 for AirPlay 2

AirPlay 2 was first announced as part of iOS 11 over the summer. However, the feature didn't ship with iOS 11.0 in September. The feature emerged inside the company's iOS 11.4 beta and it's available in iOS 11.4 and iOS 11.4.1.

If you're unfamiliar, AirPlay 2 is the first major upgrade to the company's audio streaming in seven years and it comes with some exciting features including multi-room audio playback from iOS and higher level buffering.

The latter is exciting because it should cut down on skipping and better range. Audio should continue playing while you leave Wi-Fi range.

AirPlay 2 lets users add compatible speakers to the Home app and integrate with other AirPlay 2 speakers.

The HomePod speaker is the company's first AirPlay 2 speaker, but we expect other companies, like Sonos, to make their speakers compatible in the near future. It's also compatible with the Apple TV.

If you skipped iOS 11.4, you'll get AirPlay 2 support with iOS 11.4.1.

      DO NOT install ios 11! It is a giant step for Apple but a HUGE step back for phone users.
      The most annoying thing is that you no longer can check your voicemail directly you have to CALL AND LOG IN TO iToons. (Can you spell ads.)

      The whole ios 11 system is a giant money grab by Apple. Much as I resent Google’s android I may have to go back to it.
      What we really need is an alternative provider (available in the rest of the world but not here). This is no longer “the land of the free.”

        The comment is incoherent. What does the reader’s dislike of some feature of an operating system have to do with the degree of political freedom in the country?

      (double tapping the home button to bring down the top portion of the screen so it’s easily accessible with one hand) I thought this handy function was to show what apps. I have open, and to close if I like. At least that’s what it does on my iPhone 5s running iOS 10.3.3. What are you talking about?

    You actually MUST wait if you’re out of your country.
    I travelled from the US to Ireland and got an update that I wasn’t supposed to get because they do everything by location! Thank goodness it wasn’t bad, but be careful, you can fall into that trap! Maybe because Jony Ive is from the U.K., they get updates first! All I know is I got 10.3.2 before anyone else!!! :)

    Siri is so irritating. The translation feature has a funny example–exactly why this kind of translating often gets it wrong. “Where is the bathroom?” is literally translated. The place someone would point out for you would have nothing to do with a toilet. It would be a place to take a bath.

    Apple is more concerned about hiding off shore profits than making good products anymore. Sad.

    Ever since iOS 11 and it’s later iterations, my iPad Pro 12.9” turned to a useless piece of crap. So useless that I had to return it. They gave me a replacement which is also doesn’t work. It’s ok if you don’t need the touch screen facility (which I do). That aspect of it doesn’t work. The screen spends 50% of the time utterly unresponsive to touch with either my fingers of the Apple Pencil. Basically I have a slate and a stick which cost me €1000 and €100 respectively. I’m really unhappy. If iOS 11.4 doesn’t fix absolutely everything, I don’t even want another replacement. I was an an early adopter of iPad and have them scattered about the house. All of my equipment is Apple (MacBook Pro, iPhones, iPads), but my iPad Pros since iOS 11 are donkeys. Really frustrating.

    There is always only one reader at a time. The author should not refer to “some of you” or “most of you” but to “some users” or “most users.” “If your situation is x, then… If it is y, then…” covers the circumstances of different readers without awkward wording.

    I don’t care about any of the upgrade features for my iPad. Not worried about security or anything else. When will they force us to upgrade with and “Or else…” connected?? My feeling: IF IT AIN’T BROKE….

    In over 30 years of using Macs I’ve never had any “breech” or anything else go wrong from hackers, etc. Too much fear based nonsense about “security” when in reality the alphabet agencies have back doors on most everything :-(

    I have been having a terrible time with my iphone7 since the upgrade.
    The screen has become so sensitive that the phone now plays music, calls people, hangs up on people, and performs other “unwanted” actions with the slightest accidental touch of the screen. Anyone else having this problem?
