In a follow up to iOS 11.3 released earlier this month, Apple published a minor update for its mobile operating system. Not everyone goes to Apple to get their screen replaced, whether its because of price or their location or some other reason, and this update suggests that Apple wasn't deliberately hampering the touch input for iPhone owners that got their display replaced at somewhere other than Apple.
The iOS 11.3.1 update is nowhere as major a software build as the iOS 11.3 package that was created to enhance the user experience by letting users toggle performance throttling and view battery health. During the year 2017, an iOS update has also killed the touchscreen functions of the iPhone 7 and same happens in 2018 when the users of iPhone 8 models update with iOS 11.3. This apparently was a software issue and Apple has resolved it in today's upgrade. The video also works to promote the safety and environmental benefits of the latest Apple devices. This is particularly common with Apple products due to the expense of replacements using genuine Apple components. The release also promises security improvements for iPhone and iPad. Following a brief investigation, it was found that only those units of the iPhone 8 were affected that underwent a third-party display fix.
It's good to see Apple fix this bug relating to third-party display replacements. The update then bought a set of changes in the iOS devices including an updated and improved implementation of an enhanced AR user experience.
Users who had gone to a non-Apple company for a screen replacement were affected by the issue and complained that, after downloading the update, their phones completely stopped responding to touch. Without touch support, these smartphones were pretty much useless.
