Apple iOS 11 Rolls Out: Learn Early Adoption Pitfalls

American company Apple has released new iOS 11 succeeded iOS 10 for iPhones and iPads yesterday, but its implementation is somewhat is slower than that of its predecessor and various issues have been noticed by early adopters.

According to data from Mixpanel, iOS 11 mobile operating system had been installed on just over 10% of supported devices in a day after the launch. It’s quite lower than the adoption of previous iOS 10 at release which was around 14% after 24 hours. Tech experts have long held that people are usually intelligent to hold off installing new OS launch until a couple of iterations in. Though, the big giant Apple has always prided itself on its user’s swift adoption rate of new OS releases, praising it as a metric in previous conference reports and keynotes. For the industry, it’s still a good rapidity of adoption but very few issues could interpret the slower movement.

Actually, there may be one big issue and a few smaller ones. The majority of the problems are likely to be resolved in a very short time but few won’t and you may or will have to get used to. There are some iOS 11 problems on iPhones and iPads:

 Toggling WiFi and Bluetooth in the Control Center:

In the last version of Apple’s operating system, you can completely disable the Bluetooth on your phone, just after tapping the Bluetooth connectivity in Control Centre with the one-stop shop interface. But it’s not the same in the latest version of iOS as disabling Bluetooth button from Control Centre only disconnects active Bluetooth pairings and prevents new pairings until it’s re-enabled. Though the Bluetooth hardware is still working on and it’s the same with Wi-Fi connectivity.

The multinational technology company implicit in its support documentation that it is to assure that some of what it may regard as core iOS services like AirPlay, AirDrop, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, Continuity, Instant Hotspot and Location services will carry on to function. In a void with no user expectations, it could be a logical design decision. It’s all because Bluetooth’s battery effect is negligible when it’s not keenly used with another device.

However, iOS users are habitual to tap the Bluetooth button in the Control Centre to turn it off completely so it’s quite surprising choice that toggling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in Control Centre doesn’t actually turn them off. This is one of the iOS 11 adoption issues that are not supposed to go away with future updates, though it’s important to note that it’s still promising to turn off Bluetooth.

As stated in the Apple’s documentation “We confirmed this by testing it that disabling Bluetooth in the Settings app really does turn it off. Furthermore, we tested the Airplane Mode button in Control Center and found that tapping that did indeed disable both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.”

Outlook, Exchange, and Office 365 e-mails might not send

Yes, you heard right! There’s a serious issue with e-mail as users relying on email accounts hosted on Office 365, or Exchange Server 2016 may receive an error message while trying to send an e-mail in the latest version of iOS. Microsoft and Apple both have made statements that they are very well aware of the issue and looking forward to fixing it in upcoming iOS updates.

The big one: 32-bit app support

As disclosed on the launch of iOS that the latest iOS 11 discard support for 32-bit applications so there is a high probability that many of your old application may stop working after upgrading your iPhone or iPad. iOS 11 will decline to launch the apps, with an error message saying: “The developer of this app needs to update it to work with iOS 11.” No matter if you are using iOS 10 or latest iOS 11, you can see a list of currently installed applications that won’t work by opening the Settings app, then navigating to General, About and Applications.

The giant Apple began noticing developers to update their application from 32-bit to 64-bit.
