Apple pushes update to address third-party display issues on iPhone

On Tuesday, Apple released an update to iOS 11 that claims to fix some iPhone 8 touchscreens that had recently become unresponsive. According to App Store data ending on April 22, 2018, iOS 11 is now on 76% of devices, with 19% still on iOS 10 and 5% on an earlier version of iOS. Alongside the new iOS update, Apple has brought a security update to the macOS 10.13.4 that debuted on Mac devices last month.

Apple's release notes warns users against taking their phones into third-party fix shops that use "non-genuine replacement displays." . On your device, head over to Settings General Software Update, and then check for update. Tap "Download and install" next to the iOS 11.3.1 listing and you'll be good to go. The new iOS update is available for download for all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models. The company also encourages customers to have their fix performed by Apple-certified technicians using genuine parts. During the year 2017, an iOS update has also killed the touchscreen functions of the iPhone 7 and same happens in 2018 when the users of iPhone 8 models update with iOS 11.3. Apple's patch notes specify two things: security and an issue affecting iPhone 8 devices with unauthorized third party screen replacements.

An Apple logo is seen on the building's facade.

That iOS 11.3 came with several new features like a business feature for Messages, new types of Animoji for the iPhone X, and a Battery Health app that allowed users to keep a close eye on the handset's battery status.

That doesn't mean Apple isn't still exceedingly profitable: The iPhone X and its premium price captured 35% of all smartphone profits in Q4 2017, and Apple made 90% of all smartphone profits over that time.
