- It resolves an issue with the Health app
- The update fixes other bugs as well
- iPhone 5 and later devices are eligible for the update
Just a week after Apple released iOS 10.1 update commercially, the tech giant has now rolled out iOS 10.1.1 to iPhone and iPad users. This update focuses mainly around bug fixes, the main one being resolving an issue with the Health app.
For some users, the Health app was not showing any data, and iOS 10.1.1 fixes that issue. Furthermore, the release notes state that the update fixes several other bugs that Apple felt were not important enough to detail.
This update will be available for iPhone 5 and later devices, iPad fourth generation and later devices, and iPod touch 6th generation and later devices. Head over to Settings > General > Software Update to download and install the new update. Alternatively, you can even update via iTunes. First install iTunes, and then connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac. In iTunes select your device’s icon on the top bar, Click the Summary tab and then click Check for update. Now, click Download and update. At this point, you should follow the simple on-screen instructions to install iOS 10.Ensure that you have at least 50 percent battery backup, and a strong Wi-Fi connection when attempting to update. Don’t forget to backup your iOS device before you download and install the update.
Last week, the iOS 10.1 update introduced the much talked about Portrait Mode to iPhone 7 Plus users for creating the ‘bokeh’ effect. This mode creates a shallow depth of field effect to sharpen the main object, while blurring the background. iOS 10.1 also introduces improvements in Maps and iMessage apps.However, there’s a new warning that starts cropping up for 32-bit apps once you update to iOS 10.1. Users are warned that their 32-bit app may slow the iPhone as the developer has not followed instructions and switched to 64-bit. Apple stopped accepting updates to 32-bit apps in June 2015, and this new warning hints that 32-bit apps that still flood App Store may be removed entirely in the future.
