As indicated on the release notes, the iOS 11.0.3 update will fix audio and haptic feedback issue on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and touch input on 6s if the device is serviced with genuine Apple parts.
As always, you can go to SETTINGS > GENERAL > SOFTWARE UPDATE, to get the latest iOS update if you have not been notified yet.
Apple has always shared the kernel of macOS after each major release. This kernel also runs on iOS devices as both macOS and iOS are built on the same foundation. This year, Apple also shared the most recent version of the kernel on GitHub. And you can also find ARM versions of the kernel for the first time.
The source article contain the history of the foundation of macOS, iOS, watchOS and Apple TV. But that’s interesting with this article is that last week, Nikkei Asian Review published an article that gives a hint that Apple may soon switch from Intel to its own chips.
Two industry sources say that Apple is trying to cut its dependence on Intel when it comes to notebook chips and instead build those using ARM architecture, referring to the SoftBank-controlled British chip designer.
Apple is definitely looking into using their own custom chip on all of their products and would be foolish not to, but the problem is that it would take at least 2 to 3 years before they can develop a version of macOS that runs on ARM chips and will have very little effect on the macOS ecosystem.
If they switch from Intel to ARM, they need to change the architecture of their OS and in turn the developers of existing and even new mac apps needs to be re-written for the new architecture and that’s what Apple is trying to avoid or at least minimize.

Depending on where you are in the world, iOS 11 may already be available for your device. However, before you go and download iOS 11, there are things that you need to do, I cannot stress enough how important item number 2.
Apple today introduced the new Apple TV 4K designed to deliver a stunning cinematic experience at home. With support for both 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR), Apple TV 4K features unbelievably sharp, crisp images, richer, more true-to-life colors, and far greater detail in both dark and bright scenes. With Apple TV 4K, viewers can enjoy a growing selection of 4K HDR movies on iTunes. iTunes users will get automatic upgrades of HD titles in their existing iTunes library to 4K HDR versions when they become available. Apple TV 4K will also offer 4K HDR content from popular video services, including Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, coming soon.
Apple today introduced Apple Watch Series 3, adding built-in cellular to the world’s number one watch. Whether users are out for a run, at the pool or just trying to be more active throughout their day, Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows them to stay connected, make calls, receive texts and more, even without iPhone nearby. The third-generation Apple Watch is an amazing health and fitness companion with intelligent coaching features, water resistance 50 meters1 and a new barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation. Apple Watch Series 3 comes in two models, one with GPS and cellular, and one with GPS, both featuring a 70 percent faster dual-core processor and new wireless chip.
I have the original Apple Watch and to me it feels like that Apple Watch Series 3 is the Apple Watch that Apple intended to release two years ago.
This will now be the new pricing of both the old and new Apple Watch;
Apple today announced a new generation of iPhone: iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The new iPhone features a new glass and aluminum design in three beautiful colors made out of the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, Retina HD displays and A11 Bionic chip, and is designed for the ultimate augmented reality experience. The world’s most popular camera gets even better with single and dual cameras featuring Portrait Lighting on iPhone 8 Plus, and wireless charging brings a powerful new capability to iPhone. Both devices will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 15 in more than 25 countries and territories, and in stores beginning Friday, September 22.
The design still looks the same but most of the changes are made under the hood.
Apple today announced iPhone X, the future of the smartphone, in a gorgeous all-glass design with a beautiful 5.8-inch Super Retina display, A11 Bionic chip, wireless charging and an improved rear camera with dual optical image stabilization. iPhone X delivers an innovative and secure new way for customers to unlock, authenticate and pay using Face ID, enabled by the new TrueDepth camera. iPhone X will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, October 27 in more than 55 countries and territories, and in stores beginning Friday, November 3.
That $999 price tag will surely turn off potential buyers, though it’s just $69 higher than the Note 8.
After the Apple event, videos of iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have been uploaded to their official Youtube channel, as always the videos are right on the mark and full of emotions.

You need to read the footer if you plan to watch the live streaming on another device.
Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 9.0 or later, a Mac with Safari on macOS v10.11 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation) with software 6.2 or later or an Apple TV (4th generation).
I was mistaken when I said that iOS 11 Public Beta 7 is “most likely be the last beta update that Apple will roll-out.” Since I got another notification to download the iOS 11 Public Beta 8, and checking with the other iOS Developers, Apple released the iOS 11 beta 9 for developers and it looks like there will be iOS 11 Public Beta 9 before the they (Apple) roll-out the GM version.
This is uncharted area for Apple, with regards to the number of beta that releases. The most number of betas that Apple released is for the iOS 10 beta 8 before they release the GM version.
I’ve been using iOS 11 public beta on my iPhone 6s for more than a month now and iOS 11 Public Beta 6 feels like its the beta that’s nearest to the final version that Apple is expected to release next month. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can go to http://beta.apple.com, to enroll your device and download the iOS 11 Beta via Apple’s Beta software program.
Apple today updated its sales policy in Hong Kong to indicate all products purchased at Apple’s online and retail stores in the country on and after August 15, 2017 cannot be returned or exchanged indefinitely.
This is in preparation for the upcoming iPhone (8) and in an attempt to stop smuggling.
