You should probably get that iOS 11.1 update…

And for two major reasons:

1] A fix for the KRACK vulnerability you may nor may not have heard about.
2] 70 new emojis:)

While those 2 should probably be enough for most people to upgrade, there are a number of other fixes too, both for security and functionality of your device, including possible fixes for battery life.

As always: MAKE SURE YOU BACK-UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE YOU UPDATE IT!

Updating is easy, just click Settings/Software Update

Did we mention you need to back-up before you update?

 

Before you upgrade to iOS11…

…backup your device! These days the upgrade process tends to go smoothly, but whenever making changes to the operating system of a device, there is a small chance something could go wrong and you might have data loss. There are two ways your iPhone/iPad could be backed up: 1] to iCloud 2] to your computer. Open up iTunes and you can see which one you are doing and the date of the last backup. The advantage to a local backup is that if you need to restore your phone, you don’t have to wait for it to download everything from the cloud, whereas with the cloud you can restore your phone regardless of where your computer is.

If something happens to your iPhone/iPad during the upgrade process, it is very unlikely that data recovery will be possible, so this backup is important. If you do need data recovery from other devices, get in touch with us today!
