With every software update, iPhone users everywhere are faced with the quintessential digital age dilemma: to update or not to update. The iOS 17.3.1 update brings with it a mix of anticipation and skepticism, especially for those who have navigated the choppy waters of previous updates. If you are wondering how this update stacks up, especially in terms of performance, battery life, and bug resolutions, you will be pleased to know that we’ve delved deep into the latest iOS version to bring you a comprehensive analysis, coupled with user feedback and personal testing results. The video below from iDeviceHelp gives us some more details on the software.
Despite the update’s focus on squashing the text bug, it appears that not all gremlins have been banished. Wi-Fi instability and keyboard freezing issues continue to haunt a segment of users, indicating that the iOS 17.3.1 update, while helpful, is not a panacea for all the system’s ailments.
Feedback on battery performance has been mixed. Some users find their devices draining faster than a sinking ship, while others, including our testing, observed battery life on par with iOS 17.3. The device manages to last through the day, albeit with some struggle, hinting at no significant regression or improvement in this area.
For a subset of users, the update has not smoothed over all the rough edges. Wi-Fi connectivity and keyboard responsiveness remain inconsistent, a reminder that technology, as ever, is a work in progress.
There’s a silver lining for those already looking to the horizon. The iOS 17.4 beta, currently under testing on another device, shows promising signs of addressing not just the Wi-Fi and cellular service issues, but also improving keyboard functionality. This hints at a more comprehensive resolution in the pipeline, raising hopes for a smoother, more reliable user experience in future updates.
