Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

Many bugs that ex­isted in early ver­sions of iOS 11 have now been fixed, and up­grad­ing should be fairly pain­less. If you’re cu­ri­ous about what has been re­solved, Ap­ple main­tains a de­tailed list at bit.ly/ios11notes. Note that this isn’t ex­haus­tive, though — from its con­tents, you wouldn’t have a clue as to why an app might no longer show up in Spot­light’s search re­sults, for ex­am­ple. (We’ll talk about that spe­cific is­sue in a mo­ment.)

Many changes in iOS 11 are ben­e­fi­cial, and if your de­vice can take the up­grade but you haven’t in­stalled it, read our past cov­er­age in

Mac|Life is­sues 135 and 134. As with High Sierra, there are some stum­bling blocks, but over the next few pages we’ll help you over­come them, and show how to track down per­sis­tent is­sues whether you’re us­ing iOS 11 or an­other ver­sion.

iOS 11 has ma­tured into a gen­er­ally re­li­able re­lease, with plenty of good new fea­tures, but there are be­hav­ioral changes you need to know about.
