Apple on Tuesday released a minor iOS 11.0.2 software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch following the bug-fix iOS 11.0.1 update which dropped a week ago.

iOS 11.0.2 resolves an issue with a crackling or static sound that some iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus owners reported hearing through the earpiece during cellular and FaceTime calls.

Apple’s latest software update is available over-the-air in Setting → General → Software Update and carries a build number of 15A421.

You can download the firmware files through the iDownloadBlog Downloads page.

Apple’s official release notes state that iOS 11.0.2 includes bug fixes and improvements for your iPhone or iPad, including:

  • Fixes an issue where crackling sounds may occur during calls for a small number of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus devices
  • Addresses an issue that could cause some photos to become hidden
  • Fixes an issue where attachments in S/MIME encrypted emails would not open

    Lol they stopped giving warnings about updating to lose a jailbreak. JB is dead now. So sad 🙁

    • rafa benitez

      your late lol, jailbraking is dead since 2013

    • Fanboy 

      Sad to say that, as a fanboy, I agree. Stock features have definitely caught up, and the back-and-forth cat & mouse game got tiring 🙁

    • Mr.Coolfreak

      Jailbreaking has been dead for a few years now. barely anyone skilled enough is working on them and there is less need for people to jailbreak because apple has slowly implemented most features in iOS

  • Sailor_V90

    Well, hopefully this update will fix my Plus that keeps glitching and thinking its the iPhone X

  • HamptonWalley

    Any update which would fix the spliting problem?

  • Robert Mathews

    How about not getting group chats. I haven’t been getting them since updating.

  • Wilber Alexander Flores

    Where’s 11.1 beta 2? Beta 1 is so trash

    • Daniel Moura

      maybe next week 🙁

  • galdamita

    It is better to stay safe in a decent firmware like iOS 10.3.3

    • Dexter

      In my opinion, yes. I put iOS 11 on after 11.0.1 but I regret it. There is so much lag, almost unnoticeable but I’m certainly noticing it… Let’s not even compare battery life! If you’re still on 10.3.3, stay there until 11.1 or later.

      That’s just my opinion though…

    • Mr_Coldharbour

      I agree. iOS 10.3.3 is a decent firmware that runs extremely smoothly.

  • White Michael Jackson

    One thing i have noticed is sometimes when I respond to text via pop up it writes the persons response twice. In the app the does not show that

  • Bacillus

    Ahh, insanely great. An update to make your duhpgrade phone a phone again – after ever so much beta’s

  • Blip dude

    I’m already having hardware issues again. Phone randomly goes out of service and have to reboot or it simply can’t find WiFi network even though both my WiFi and neighbors networks appear nearby. Where’s my fix for that Apple??
