iOS 17.1 Update: Everything We Know So Far

The American Tech Giant recently announced their most awaited iPhone 15 series, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max—the introduction of iOS 17 during the launch excited tech enthusiasts because of its exciting features.

However, in recent times, the update situation is not as good as it should be. The iOS 17 update caused a hustle and bustle among the public. The previous iPhones and the recent iPhone 15 series are not immune from the situation. Updating your iPhone to iOS 17 is risky for now!

For instance, the company removed the Rewind or Fast-forward gesture without prior notice and added something else to perform the same task. The iOS 17 update caused the interrupting behavior of the iMessage application. The custom text tones are missing from the respective settings.

The automation in the shortcuts application is not working. The Apple logo stuck when updating to iOS 17. Also, the contact posters are not working, and the appearance of the grey call screen, etc., are some of the significant problems consumers face. The usual battery drain issues, lags, and inconsistencies in the iPhone’s operation are also there.

Every user facing the problems is venting their anger on various social media platforms and searching for a solution for a smoother experience. Some issues have answers, and some leave them hopeless. The only hope that arises is the successive updates that the company is intended to provide.

The iOS 17.1 is the next software update expected to solve some problems and improve the user experience. Let’s discuss what the patch will likely bring and its release date. So, without wasting any time, let’s get started.
