Apple releases iOS 11.0.1 update amid user complaints of app failures, battery drain

The release of iOS 11 has brought the usual complaints about performance issues, with an entire thread on Reddit dedicated to users who have seen a steep drop in battery life, slow load times for apps and buggy performance in general. Apple has released iOS 11.0.1, only saying the standard “bug fixes and improvements” in the way of explaining what has changed, so it’s unclear whether this is in response to problems or just a routine update, but Apple did tell The Verge it is working on the static users have reported hearing in the iPhone 8 earpiece. The company claims the crackling has only come up in a “small number” of devices and a fix “will be included in an upcoming software release.”
