Apple releases iOS 11.2 beta 3

Iphone X_Front_1

With iOS 11, Apple changed the way the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi toggles in Control Center work. The two buttons are no longer standard on/off switches, and instead disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi only for a set period of time.

In the new iOS 11.2 beta released this morning, Apple has added new informational pop-ups to let users know exactly how these toggles work. The new pop-ups explain that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will be disabled temporarily rather than permanently.

Prior to today's update, the Control Center toggles for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth could be somewhat confusing, because there was no on-device explanation. Apple outlined how the toggles work in a support document, but if you didn't see it, you might wonder why Wi-Fi or Bluetooth were turning themselves back on after being disabled via Control Center.

These new messages will appear the first time the Control Center toggles are used. Subsequent uses will show a message at the top that reads "Disconnecting Nearby Wi-Fi Networks Until Tomorrow" or "Disconnecting Bluetooth Devices Until Tomorrow."

While Apple's new pop-ups offer a better explanation than was previously available, there are other situations where Wi-Fi or Bluetooth might be turned back on sooner than one day. When you use the Wi-Fi toggle in Control Center, Wi-Fi is disabled until one of the following conditions occurs:

  • Wi-Fi is reactivated using Control Center
  • You connect to a Wi-Fi network using Settings > Wi-Fi
  • You walk or drive to a new location
  • It's 5:00 a.m. local time
  • Your iOS device is restarted

When you use the Bluetooth toggle in Control Center, Bluetooth is disabled until one of the following conditions occurs:

  • Bluetooth is reactivated using control Center
  • You connect to a Bluetooth accessory in Settings > Bluetooth
  • It's 5:00 a.m. local time
  • Your iOS device is restarted

To more permanently disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on an iOS device running iOS 11, it's necessary to go to the Settings app and toggle these features off in the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth sections. Apple likely made the change to Control Center in iOS 11 for a better overall user experience, as some iPhone and iPad owners might not realize the impact that turning Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off can have when it comes to iOS features like GPS directions, Continuity, and more.

In addition to introducing a message to let users know how Bluetooth and Wi-Fi work in Control Center, on the iPhone X, there's also a small UI change designed to make the Control Center gesture more obvious. Whenever you're on the Lock screen, there's a small bar underneath the icons on the right side of the device, letting you know there's more to see there. The bar is not displayed on the Home screen of an unlocked iPhone X, nor is it displayed within apps.

For those unfamiliar, accessing the Control Center on the iPhone X is done from a swipe down on the top right side of the device rather than a swipe upwards from the bottom.

You Can Still Downgrade iOS 11.1 To iOS 10.3.3 On iPhone 6s

This is a bit of a bizarre one, but for one reason or another, Apple is still allowing iPhone 6s users to downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 from various versions of iOS 11, including the latest publicly released iOS 11.1.

The Cupertino-based company initially seemed to have a very valid reason for doing this purely for iPhone 6s owners as users who had their touchscreen replaced by a third-party suffered from unresponsiveness issue on the device. It was because of this Apple started resigning 10.3.3 for iPhone 6s shortly after closing it on all devices. But with this issue being fixed starting from iOS 11.0.3, the company continues to sign the old firmware.

The open window means that all iPhone 6s owners can still take the opportunity to revert back to iOS 10.3.3 away from any version of iOS 11 if they wished to do so. There could be multiple reasons for this, including some users still suffering issues with iPhone 6s running early versions of iOS 11, and who haven’t had the confidence to update further down the iOS 11 chain because of early issues they have encountered.

A downgrade could also be on the cards purely because the device owner doesn’t like what iOS 11 represents. Certain design changes have been made throughout the system. Apple has introduced a brand new App Store app with a radical new user-interface and user-experience, but as much as this seems to have been met with approval by most, it certainly won’t be to everyone’s tastes. And, of course, because iPhone 6s isn’t a brand new hardware and is now a couple of generations old, it could just be that installing it has affected device performance in other ways or had an adverse effect on battery life. Whatever the reason it’s good to know that a downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 is still possible even if temporarily or just as an oversight on the company’s part.

Now that you know that Apple is still signing iOS 1o.3.3 for iPhone 6s for reasons which are currently only known to those internally, you may also know that iOS 10.3.3 was a solid and stable version of iOS for most device owners. Armed with all of that information, if you are an iPhone 6s owner and you want to get back to iOS 10.3.3, then you can use our existing guide on the downgrade process here:

Step 1: First of all you are going to need to make sure that you are sitting on the latest version of iTunes on your Mac or Windows PC. If not, download and install it with immediate effect.

Step 2: You will also need to have the relevant IPSW file for the device that you own. You can download the right iOS 10.3.3 IPSW file for your specific device from here:
Download iOS 10.3.3 Final IPSW Links For iPhone, iPad, iPod touch.

Step 3: On the device, you will now need to turn off the Find My iPhone feature. Navigate to Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone. Toggle the Find My iPhone switch to the Off position and authenticate with the iCloud password when prompted.

Note: You can bypass DFU mode altogether in Step 4 below and restore to iOS 10.3.3 just like normal restore with iTunes from Step 5 onwards, but we recommend using DFU mode to avoid any potential issues.

Step 4: Use the provided USB cable to connect your device to the computer and ensure that iTunes launches. You’re now going to need to put the connected device into DFU or Recovery mode. iPhone 7 users should follow our guide here for instructions on how to put the phone in DFU mode. Non-iPhone 7 users should hold down the Power and Home button for 10 seconds, then release the Power button but ensuring that Home button is still pressed. The device will jump into DFU mode and iTunes will provide an alert saying that it has detected a device in Recovery Mode.

Step 5: Now, in iTunes, press and hold the Option key (Mac), or SHIFT key (Windows), and select the Restore iPhone… option in the main device window. Select the iOS 10.3.3 IPSW file from your computer that you want to downgrade to.

Step 6: iTunes will instantly go about its business and restore the iOS 10.3.3 firmware file to the device.

When it has finished doing what it needs to do, it will present you with the standard Hello! screen of iOS 10 allowing you to set the device up as per your requirements.

Apple releases iOS 11.1

iOS-11.1-teaser-002

Apple has released iOS 11.1 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The latest software update adds hundreds of new emoji characters including new expressions, vampires and zombies, breastfeeding, dinosaurs and many more. Other changes include the return of the 3D Touch gesture for multitasking, a smoother scroll-to-top animation, and other bug fixes and improvements.


Apple first previewed these new emoji over the summer then teased them again in recent betas. Now iOS 11.1 is available to all customers following a brief beta period. You’ll need iOS 11.1 to both send and receive the new emoji characters, otherwise you won’t find them in the keyboard picker and you’ll only receive generic blocks and broken up emoji in place of the new characters.

iOS 11.1 also restores the popular 3D Touch multitasking gesture on iPhone 6s and later. This lets you touch the left edge of the display with pressure to enter multitasking or pull with pressure from left to right to switch between two apps. Apple previously removed this gesture (which works differently on iPhone X) but modified it and restored it with iOS 11.1.

Reachability has also improved so you can reliably double tap the Home button to lower the screen in more places, and there’s a smoother animation when tapping the top of the display to return to the top of a window.

There are also many bug fixes and security improvements in iOS 11.1. Most notably, the update addresses a major vulnerability in the WPA2 Wi-Fi standard that is used to protect many modern Wi-Fi networks. The exploit, which is now fixed, let attackers use a key reinstallation attack or "KRACK" to decrypt network traffic to sniff out sensitive information. Full release notes for the update, including all of the bug fixes, are available below:

Emoji
- Over 70 new emoji characters including new food types, animals, mythical creatures, clothing options, more expressive smiley faces, gender-neutral characters and more

Photos
- Resolves an issue that could cause some photos to appear blurry
- Addresses an issue that could cause Live Photo effects to playback slowly
- Fixes an issue that could cause some photos to not display in the People album when restoring from an iCloud Backup
- Fixes an issue that could impact performance when swiping between screenshots

Accessibility
- Improves braille support for Grade 2 input
- Improves VoiceOver access to multi-page PDFs
- Improves VoiceOver rotor actions for announcing incoming notifications
- Improves VoiceOver rotor actions menu when removing an app from the App Switcher
- Fixes an issue for some users where alternative keys would not display when using VoiceOver with Touch Typing
- Fixes an issue where VoiceOver rotor would always return to default action in Mail
- Fixes an issue where VoiceOver rotor would not delete messages

Other improvements and fixes
- Adds back support for accessing the app switcher by pressing on edge of display with 3D Touch
- Fixes an issue that caused cleared Mail notifications to reappear on Lock screen
- Fixes an issue in enterprise environments that prevented data from being moved between managed apps
- Fixes an issue with some 3rd-party GPS accessories that caused inaccuracies in location data
- Resolves an issue where settings for Heart Rate notifications were appearing in Apple Watch app (1st generation)
- Fixes an issue where app icons were not appearing in notifications on Apple Watch

Bluetooth Not Working in iOS 11 on iPhone or iPad?

Here's How to Fix it


ios-logo1-1100x469



Like in case of any major iOS software update this time also some users seem to have problems after updating (OTA) to iOS 11 such as Wi-Fi / Bluetooth connection problems, draining battery life a lot faster etc.

Some users seem to be having problems connecting their iPhones and iPads to Bluetooth devices (iBlue Smart Gate) after installing the iOS 11 update.

For the very first step, please take it into consideration, that the problem is actually based on your iPhone or iPad and not on the Bluetooth accessory (iBlue Smart Gate /Smart Key) you're trying to connect to.



After you have considered that the problem lies in you iPhone or iPad running iOS 11, here are a few solutions you could try:


1. Turn off Bluetooth and Reboot



The first thing to try is to turn off your Bluetooth and restart your iPhone or iPad:


  • Turn off Bluetooth by going to Settings > Bluetooth and turning off the Bluetooth toggle.
  • Hard reset your iPhone by holding the Home button (Volume down button on iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus) and the Power button until you see the Apple logo.
  • Now enable Bluetooth again from Control Center or Settings > Bluetooth.
  • Try connecting to the device now. If the problem still isn't solved, try the next solution.


2. Reset Network Settings



If the first tip did not work, you could also try resetting your network settings. A side effect of doing this is that all your Wi-Fi settings will also be cleared, so you might have to rejoin Wi-Fi networks, and configure VPN all over again.

Here's how to reset network settings:

  • Open Settings and navigate to General > Reset
  • Tap Reset Network Settings
  • You'll be required to enter your passcode, if you have one.
  • Confirm your action in the popup


3. Restore and Setup as new iPhone



This is not ideal, but if none of these tips fix your issues, the last resort is to restore your iPhone or iPad via iTunes, and set it up as a new device. This way, you start afresh, and get rid of possibly problematic customizations and settings on your device.

  • Open iTunes on your Mac or PC. If you can't access a computer and your device still works, you can erase and restore your device without a computer.
  • Connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to your computer with the cable that came with your device.
  • If a message asks for your device passcode or to Trust This Computer, follow the onscreen steps. If you forgot your passcode, get help.
  • Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod when it appears in iTunes. For an unresponsive device or one that won't turn on, learn what to do. Or get help if your device doesn't appear in iTunes.
  • In the Summary panel, click Restore [device].
  • Click Restore again to confirm. Then iTunes erases your device and installs the latest iOS or iPod software.
  • After your device restores to factory settings, it restarts. Now you can set it up as new.


4. Repair Bluetooth Issues on iOS 11 via ReiBoot


If your Bluetooth not available on iOS 11 still exist, you may then try to use third party software to fix this problem. ReiBoot, a free tool to put iOS device into recovery mode and bring it back to normal with 1 click.

Download ReiBoot

Windows: Free Download Size: 5.4MB ( For Windows )
Mac: Free Download Size: 9.5MB ( For Mac )

Run ReiBoot and connect iPhone with PC/Mac. Click "Enter Recovery Mode", and click "Exit Recovery Mode" until you see iTunes and USB icons on iPhone screen. Then your iPhone may turn back to normal.

Besides, if the Bluetooth connectivity issues on iOS 11 related to your iPhone operating system, you can also use the powerful feature Fix All iOS Stuck of ReiBoot to repair corrupted iOS system to get the problem solved.


5. Repair Bluetooth Issues on iOS 11 with eBeacon app



  • Download the eBeacon application from the AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ebeacon-ibeacon-eddystone-ble-device-scanner/id730279939?mt=8
  • When you start the app, it will search for the device, so it will be also viable in the Bluetooth devices list.
  • After this, you have to switch off and again on the BT in the settings.
  • Then you restart your phone.
  • From then on, the Bluetooth module will be updated, so there won’t be any disfunction.
  • And the Smart Key app will also see the device.
