    Today is the official release of iOS 11 for iPad. Anyone with a recent Apple tablet (or phone) can go to Settings > General > Software Update to begin the over-the-air installation process.

    Just make sure you have a supported device. Fortunately, the list is long, and contains all Apple’s recent iPads:
    • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2015)
    • 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2017)
    • 9.7-inch iPad Pro
    • 10.5-inch iPad Pro
    • iPad (2017)
    • iPad Air 2
    • iPad Air
    • iPad mini 4
    • iPad mini 3
    • iPad mini 2
    The tablets not on this list have 32-bit processors and will never be able to install iOS 11, which requires a 64-bit CPU.

    After releasing iOS 11.0.1 last week, Apple has now followed with iOS 11.0.2 for iPad, iPhone, and iPod. This continues the process of removing bugs from the new version that debuted in September.

    According to the official changelog, the problems taken care of are:
    • Fixes an issue where crackling sounds may occur during calls for a small number of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus devices
    • Addresses an issue that could cause some photos to become hidden
    • Fixes an issue where attachments in S/MIME encrypted emails would not open
    To install iOS 11.0.2, go to Settings > General > Software Update, or connect the iOS device to a laptop or desktop running iTunes.

    Apple has settled into a pattern of releasing small updates once a week to fix the myriad bugs in iOS 11. This week's offering is iOS 11.0.3.

    According to the official changelog:

    iOS 11.0.3 includes bug fixes for your iPhone or iPad. This update:
    • Fixes an issue where audio and haptic feedback would not work on some iPhone 7 and 7 Plus devices
    • Addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 6s displays because they were not serviced with genuine Apple parts

    Note: Non-genuine replacement displays may have compromised visual quality and may fail to work correctly. Apple-certified screen repairs are performed by trusted experts who use genuine Apple parts. See support.apple.com for more information.​

    Yeah, this is a little embarrassing. The fact that the bugs are bad enough to need such quick fixes. A friend got her first iPhone two weeks before iOS 11. She's been installing updates ever since. Not a great user experience, and it's teaching people to wait, aka to not install updates.

    Still a bit to go before they reach Windowsian proportions, no?
