How to Downgrade from iOS 11.0.3 to iOS 11.0.2 or iOS 11.0.1

How to Downgrade from iOS 11.0.3 to iOS 11.0.2 or iOS 11.0.1 is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

You can no longer go back to iOS 10 if you are fed up with iOS 11 problems or annoying iOS 11 features. Apple closed the ability to downgrade from iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.3 in early October. If you are on iOS 11, you are stuck there with the only option being to downgrade to earlier versions of iOS 11 or to upgrade to the latest release.

Even though Apple doesn’t list this officially, you can downgrade from one version of iOS 11 to another version for a limited time. It takes about 15 to 30 minutes and you can restore to a backup after you finish it.

Typically this period lasts at least a week. Apple checks to see if the software you are trying to install is still supported before completing the installation, so this is an essential step.

This will show you how to go back to an earlier version of iOS 11 from the latest iOS 11 version which is iOS 11.0.3. You cannot downgrade to iOS 11, iOS 10 or to iOS 9.

Use this guide to backup your iPhone if you aren’t already doing so.

Download the iOS 11.0.1 or iOS 11.0.2 update for your iPhone or iPad. You will need to plug your iPhone into a computer to downgrade and you will need to download the file to your computer to install it on your device. You cannot downgrade over the air.

Go to this website and download iOS 11.0.1 and this for iOS 11.0.2 for your specific iPhone or iPad model. Make sure the row is still green. If it is not green, you can no longer downgrade and should stop.

Turn off Find My iPhone on your iPhone. To do this, go to Settings -> tap on your name at the top of settings -> Tap on iCloud -> Tap on Find My iPhone -> Toggle off. When prompted enter your password.

At this point you should have your iPhone backed up, your iPhone connected to your computer and the iOS 11.0.1 or iOS 11.0.2 ipsw file on your computer.

  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Click on the iPhone in the iTunes menu.
  3. Click on the Restore iPhone button using a special click. On Mac hold alt/option when you click and on PC hold Shift when you click.
  4. In the window that opens, find the iOS 11.0.1 file you just downloaded and click on it and then click open.
  5. When prompted, choose to erase and restore your iPhone. Click Restore to begin this process.
  6. Over the next 15 to 30 minutes your iPhone will restart multiple times and then when it is done you will be back on iOS 11.0.1 or iOS 11.0.2. From here you can restore from an iCloud or iTunes backup and get going or you can start fresh.

What's New in iOS 11.0.3

The latest iOS 11 update includes all of the security fixes and new iOS 11 features that are built into iOS 11, but it adds on with many other fixes. Here is a look at what's new in iOS 11.0.3 and what it means for you. 

 - Fixes audio and haptic feedback problems on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. 

 - Fixes issue on iPhone 6s where touch failed due to non genuine Apple parts. 

Apple also warns that non-genuine displays may not work correctly, which sounds scary, but this update should actually improve the quality of how your iPhone works with third party displays that some shops will use to fix a broken iPhone screen. 

The iOS 11.0.3 update also includes the same fixes from iOS 11.0.2 and iOS 11.0.1 including;

 - 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

 - Bug fixes and performance updates

 - Security updates

If you are already on iOS 11, it is a smart idea to install the iOS 11.0.3 update so you have the latest fixes for what is a pretty buggy update overall.

iPhone Slow? What’s Up with iOS 11 Performance

iPhone Slow? What’s Up with iOS 11 Performance is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

Is Apple making my iPhone slow with iOS 11 to force me to upgrade to the iPhone 8? It’s a common question and perhaps one of the biggest iPhone conspiracies. If you are thinking about installing the iOS 11 update or already on iOS 11, you may start to feel like your iPhone is slower than it use to be.

Every year when the new iOS update arrives we see a spike in searches for iPhone slow and complaints on social media from users who think their iPhone is slower. It’s already one of the most common iOS 11 update questions we are seeing online.

Many users think Apple is intentionally slowing down the iPhone with iOS 11 to convince users to buy the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X. Apple’s iOS 11 update is coming to older devices, which is part of this issue, but it is even a concern for iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 owners.

Here’s what people are saying about iOS 11 slowing down their iPhone while using the iOS 11 GM. This is the same version of the software that Apple releases this week. We’ll also show you how you can fix some iOS 11 and slow iPhone problems.

What you need to know about iOS 11 performance and whether or not it will leave you with a slow iPhone.
What you need to know about iOS 11 performance and whether or not it will leave you with a slow iPhone.

Often your iPhone will be slow for a day or so after installing a major iOS update while it works behind the scenes on tasks, but this should clear up within 24 hours. You may also see a slow iPhone due to out of date apps, bad network connectivity and other issues. We’re starting to see iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 users complain that iOS 11 slowed their iPhone down.

Slow iPhone Conspiracy

We used to see major search spikes for Slow iPhone and iPhone Slow in September around the time Apple released the new iPhone and a major iOS update. There are still many users who think that Apple is intentionally slowing down the iPhone to convince them to upgrade to a new phone.

Most often this is referred to as planned obsolescence, which is a real thing, but it’s not clear that’s what Apple is engaging in. From a physical standpoint the iPhone battery will not last as long after a year as it did on day one because batteries degrade over time. Specifically the iPhone battery will lose about 20% of the capacity after 400 charges.

It’s not likely that Apple is purposefully slowing the iPhone down each fall. Hardware simply isn’t able to deliver the same speed on newer software and when dealing with apps that require more power. Instead of making your iPhone slow, Apple limits the features that come to older phones, which drives the upgrade process.

iOS 11 Performance

We’ve seen good iOS 11 performance overall on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s, as well as some older devices. We’re testing the iOS 11 GM on a range of other iPhones and iPads to see what we find. While there are iOS 11 problems, slow performance isn’t the biggest complaint we are hearing this year.

Watch this iOS 9.3.5 vs iOS 11 speed test to see how the iPhone 6S handles iOS 11 compared to the older software. The iOS 11 powered iPhone 6s boots up much slower, but overall it’s pretty snappy.

You can also see how well iOS 11 performs on the iPhone 5s compared to iOS 9.3.5. Once again it takes longer to boot up into iOS 11. The upside is that most of us are not restarting the phone multiple times a day.

The iPhone 5s iOS 11 update is where we start to see a slower iPhone. The animations are sometimes slower and apps load slower overall. This includes Maps, News and other stock Apple apps that you will use every day. While scrolling appears smoother on iOS 11 on the iPhone 5s, the app launched slower and loaded slower. We also see slower iOS 11 performance in Mail on iOS 11.

How to Fix Slow iOS 11 Performance

Thankfully there are some solutions to a slow iPhone on iOS 11, and several are very easy to do. You don’t need to wipe your iPhone for all of them, but that is a worst case solution to getting better iOS 11 performance.

Reset All Settings

The first thing you need to try is resetting all of your phone settings. This will mean changing some of your settings back and reconnecting to WiFi and Bluetooth, but it will not delete your apps, data, music or photos. This takes about 3-5 minutes, and while it is happening you cannot use your iPhone.

Go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings -> Enter Your Passcode.

Once your phone restarts login, reconnect to WiFi and Bluetooth devices and start using your iPhone. This should fix many slow iPhone problems without more drastic steps.

Completely Reset Your iPhone

Sometimes you need to reset your iPhone and start over from scratch. This option will reset your iPhone to factory settings on iOS 11. You can choose to restore a backup, which may or may not bring any problems back over, or you can start from scratch and re-install the apps you want and need. Make sure you have a good backup before you proceed with these options.

Go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings and Content -> Enter a Passcode. 

When your iPhone restarts it will prompt you to go through setup and you will be able to restore from a backup or start as a new iPhone. This process takes at least 5-10 minutes, and may take longer. If you choose to restore from a backup that will take much longer. You cannot use your iPhone while it is in the process of resetting.

Downgrade to iOS 10.3.3

If all else fails, you can downgrade to iOS 10.3.3 for a limited time. This is normally open for a week or two after the iOS 11 release date, so you will need to act fast if you are concerned.

You can only downgrade to the latest version of iOS 10, so there is no bouncing back to iOS 9.3.5 or to a version of iOS 10 that you can jailbreak. If you think you want to do this, do not hesitate. You can always try iOS 11 again when iOS 11.0.1 or iOS 11.1 come out later this year, but when that happens you won’t be able to go back to iOS 10.

iMessages continue to be one of the biggest iPhone and iPad features that Apple offers. In fact, it's a major reason we don't switch from the iPhone to Android. Apple ramps up the options in the iOS 11 update with tweaks and new features for iMessages. 

There is a new iMessage App Drawer so that it is easier to find the apps you want while you are in an iMessage conversation. This means you can use the iMessage apps to send stickers and other short bits of information to people faster on iOS 11. 

Apple also now offers Messages in iCloud. This allows you to keep all of your iMessage and Text conversations in sync across your devices using iCloud. This also means that if you delete a conversation it is deleted across all devices. This will also help keep large message thread storage in check without the need to delete threads all the time.

Android vs iPhone: 14 Reasons Android is Still Better

Android vs iPhone: 14 Reasons Android is Still Better is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

We’ll explain 15 reasons why Android is better than the iPhone with a 2017 Android vs iPhone comparison that looks at where Android is still King.

We’re seeing more Android Nougat updates the Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G6 are all here and the LG V30 is on the way.

On the other end of the spectrum, Apple’s iOS 11 update, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X close the gap in some key areas this year, building on the iPhone 7, but there are still a lot of areas where Android is hands down better than the iPhone and iOS.

Why Android is better than iPhone in 2017.
Why Android is better than iPhone in 2017.

Ultimately you need to figure out if an Android phone is better than the iPhone for your needs and your preferences, but if you are trying to decide this list of things that Android does better can help.

Apple caught up to Android in many areas with the last several updates, but there are still many closed off parts of iOS that are wide open to customization and control on Android.

While Apple updated, Google did not sit by without adding to Android devices. There are a plethora of great Android smartphones that deliver features you will not find on the iPhone and iOS 11. After you read the Android vs iPhone comparison you still need to pick the right Android smartphone or the right iPhone.

Some shoppers may not care about every reason, but knowing what the competition offers makes it easier to decide which smartphone you should buy in 2017.

More Choice with Android

Apple offers more choice than we’ve seen from them before with the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 and the iPhone X — but you still only have three screen sizes and two designs to pick from. The iPhone SE does still fit in, but with no iPhone SE 2, the 4-inch screen size is all but gone from Apple. You can still find good Android phones with smaller screens. Android delivers more options with waterproof phones, different screen sizes, more colors, different materials and other differentiating factors.

With Android smartphones users can choose a modular design with Moto Mods, and better waterproofing on the Note 8 as well as a variety of looks, styles and configurations. .

There is also support for a huge screen with a built-in stylus with the Note 8. In addition to these big names, there are many other options from Motorola, Huawei and if you include last year’s releases a number of other interesting options.There are also options to buy some Android phones a replaceable battery, something that isn’t available without adding a case to the iPhone.

Users can pick the phone size and design they want, and they can also pick a phone that offers a replaceable battery, a great camera or another feature without limiting to just three phones for the latest features and user experience.

Micro SD Card Support

Even the new 64Gb iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus don’t offer enough room for some users, and that is the amount of storage you are stuck with until you buy a new iPhone in two years. if you want to buy more storage off the bat, you’ll spend $150 more for 256GB.

Many Android phones support a Micro SD card that can store photos, videos and some apps so that you can easily add more storage for $15 to $30 with a small memory card.

Even 16GB Android phones offer more use thanks to the ability to add a Micro SD card to the mix. Some phones support up to a 128GB Micro SD card and almost all current Android phones with a Micro SD card slot can handle a 64GB Micro SD Card.

Google Maps is Better on Android

Use Google Maps easier on Android.

You can install Google Maps on the iPhone, but you cannot make it the default app.

This means Siri will always get directions in Apple Maps. The Apple Maps app is better than it was at launch, but it is still missing many points of interest, complete streets and neighborhoods and it still sends on on weird routes very often.

On Android, Google Maps offers transit directions in more cities, better driving directions, a deep point of interest search that works more often and it is integrated into the phone so that addresses open into Google Maps unless you choose to use an alternate mapping service.

Easy to Clear Cache to Get Space Back

Apps often download photos, videos and other pieces of information to your phone as you use them. If you look at the size of an app like Vine or Instagram on the iPhone or Android you’ll likely see a lot of storage space in use. This is because the app can keep data related to the photos and videos that it downloads.

On the iPhone you need to delete the app and re-install it to get that space back. If you are using a 16GB iPhone, you may do this once every month or two.

On Android the app often includes an option to clear the cache, even if the iPhone version doesn’t. If that doesn’t work you can also clear the cache of an app in the Android software.

Android Widget Support is Better

Widgets on Android are better than on the iPhone.
Widgets on Android are better than on the iPhone.

On Android users can choose widgets to show on the lock screen and on their home screen. This puts weather information, a live calendar and other information that each user finds important with a glance at the screen.

On the iPhone users can add some widgets with iOS 8 and that are still in iOS 10, but they are only in the Notification Center and Apple is notoriously picky about what the widgets can do and what they cannot do.

It’s easier to tap a widget on the home screen than it is to open the Notification Center, count to three for all the widgets to load and change the location of the one you want to tap, and then tap it.

Android Customization Blows iPhone Away

Users enjoy more customization on Android than on the iPhone. On Android users can install a new launcher that changes the overall look of the home screen.

Many Android versions include small options to change themes for color and other tweaks. Samsung and other companies are even going further with themes that change more than just the main color of the phone.

If you want more control over what your phone looks like without the need to jailbreak, Android is the better option.

Android Default App Choices Are Better

Choose a default Android app. You cannot do this on iPhone.
Choose a default Android app. You cannot do this on iPhone.

On the iPhone Apple does not let you choose new default apps. Safari, Mail and Apple Maps are the default and unless you are in a third-party app that lets you choose which browser to use there is no real choice. Deep linking helps you stick in apps you like, but it’s not as good as setting your favorite browser, mail client or other app.

On Android users can choose a default app to handle almost any task. This includes picking an app to watch YouTube links, Twitter links, send email with, browse the web and much more. Users can choose a new default and reset the default app later if they need to choose new one.

Split Screen Multitasking on Android

The top Android phones from Samsung and LG offer the option to use two apps on-screen at the same time. This multitasking makes it possible to chat and look at a document or work and watch content without a second device.

On a small phone screen there are limits to the usefulness, but it is an option that we enjoy on Android.

The iPhone does not support running two apps on the screen at the same time so you need to switch back and forth if you are talking to someone about a webpage or document. Apple added support for this to the iPad, but so far it is not available on the iPhone.

Multiple User Support on Android

Switch users on Android phones easily.
Switch users on Android phones easily.

We don’t share our phones with others the same way we share a tablet, but it is nice to have a multi-user mode on Android phones running Android 5.0 Lollipop and higher.

This includes the option to create an account with limited access for your kid, a guest account so you can lend a device without sharing your info. There is even an option to pin a screen so that when you hand someone your phone they can’t see more than what you are showing them.

The iPhone offers no support for multiple users and no real kids mode without going through a complicated process to lock one app to the screen.

Install Android Apps from Any Source

Unless you jailbreak the iPhone or rely on shady user profiles there is no way to install apps on the iPhone outside of the App Store.

On Android you can choose an option that lets you install apps from any location. You can side-load an app that is not on the Google Play Store so that you can use any app you need to.

This also makes it possible to run apps not specifically designed to work with your phone.

 

Download Movies & Music From Anywhere

You can download music, movies and shows from almost anywhere.
You can download music, movies and shows from almost anywhere.

If you want to add music or movies to your iPhone you need to download them on a computer and sync with iTunes or purchase them inside an app and only use them in that app. Yes, the iPhone lets you download Spotify music, download movies from iTunes and other movie services without a computer, but on Android you can download right from the web.

On the iPhone it is not possible to download the Louis CK comedy special right to the device, so users need to stream it. On Android a user can download this file to the phone or Micro SD card to watch offline without needing a computer. There are similar benefits to buying music online if you don’t want to buy through iTunes.

Google Now & Google Assistant Beat Siri

Hey Siri is useful, and Siri can finally connect to a variety of third-party apps, but it pales in comparison to the connectivity that Google Now and the Google Assistant offer.

On many Android devices users can say, “OK Google,” or a custom command to wake the phone up for voice control without touching it or it being connected to power. Users can also choose which app Google Now should use for an activity. Instead of restricting users to Google Music, a command to play an artist can open Spotify or another music app.

Google Now also does a great job of showing useful and relevant information for users on the Google Now home screen. With the Pixel you also get Google Assistant.

More Mobile Payment & NFC Options

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus include NFC to let users make mobile payments, but that is the only function and there is only one option — Apple Pay.

On Android phones users can use NFC to control phone settings, trigger tasks like turning on car mode or setting the phone to home mode.

Android phones also support Android Pay for payments and other options like Samsung Pay. Some of these only support limited banks, like Apple Pay, but you do have more options.

With Samsung Pay, you can even pay on normal credit card machines without advanced NFC chips.

Android Notifications Are Appealing

On the iPhone Notifications stack up in the Notification Center and quickly turn it into an unusable mess because clearing a notification is an annoying double tap procedure that involves small touch targets unless you have a newer phone with 3D Touch.

On Android users can swipe to the side to remove a notification and on many devices you can see deliver incredibly useful notifications on the lock screen that let users see what the notification is about at a glance.

How to Delete Stock iPhone Apps

How to Delete Stock iPhone Apps is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

This guide will show you how to delete stock iPhone apps on iOS 10 and iOS 11. Apple adds the ability to remove stock apps from the iPhone and iPad with the iOS 10 update and it’s still available in iOS 11.

You can’t technically delete stock iPhone apps since they will still take up some space on your iPhone — but you can finally remove them from your iPhone home screen and remove some of the data.

You must install the iOS 10 update for this to work. This is a free update for the iPhone 5 and up. It also works on the iPad and on the iPod touch 6th generation where you can delete stock Apple apps as well.

How to Delete Stock iPhone Apps

Deleting stock iPhone apps is as easy as deleting a regular iPhone app. You cannot delete every iPhone app with this update, but you can delete most of them.

To delete the stock iPhone apps, press and hold on an app on your iPhone until the app icons start to wiggle and a small x appears.

You need to then tap on the X and if needed tap to confirm that you want to delete the app from your iPhone.

How to delete stock iPhone apps on iOS 10.

When you remove stock iPhone apps from your iPhone, you also remove user related data and configuration files. This may also impact your Apple Watch functionality.

Here are the stock iPhone apps you can delete. If you delete all of these iPhone apps you will only get 150MB of additional space.

  • Calendar
  • Compass
  • Contacts
  • FaceTime
  • Find My Friends
  • Home
  • iBooks
  • iCloud Drive
  • iTunes Store
  • Mail
  • Maps
  • Music
  • News
  • Notes
  • Podcasts
  • Reminders
  • Stocks
  • Tips
  • Videos
  • Voice Memos
  • Watch app
  • Weather

Removing these iPhone apps will also remove them from your Apple Watch, will remove some features from CarPlay and may remove features from the Notification Center. Removing the Calculator app will also remove it from the Control Center.

How to Re-Install Stock iPhone Apps

After you remove the stock iPhone apps, you can re-install them without restoring your iPhone.

How to Use the iPhone Bedtime Alarm

How to Use the iPhone Bedtime Alarm is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

The iPhone can tell you when to go to sleep with the Bedtime alarm in iOS 10 and iOS 11. This feature will help you go to bed at the same time, which makes for better overall sleep health.

With the Bedtime alarm in iOS 10, the iPhone will show you a notification and make a noise when you need to go to bed. One catch is that it doesn’t know if you go to bed early and the notification could actually wake you up if you are a light sleeper.

Here’s how to use the iPhone Bedtime alarm and change the settings so that you wake up feeling refreshed.

How to Use the Bedtime Alarm

You’ll need to turn on the iOS 10 Bedtime alarm to use it. Right now you can choose which days to use it on, but you cannot change the schedule around from one day to the next. The whole idea is to go to bed and get up at the same time.

A study from Northwestern University in Chicago found that going to bed at the same time every night is a good part of heart health and can help cut down on stress hormones. Going to bed at the same time every night can help you live longer and healthier.

Set up the iPhone Bedtime alarm on iOS 10.
Set up the iPhone Bedtime alarm on iOS 10.

On the iPhone tap on the Clock App and then on Bedtime in the middle at the bottom of the screen.

Tap the on toggle in the upper right corner. Now, tap and drag on the go to bed time and the wake up time.

Tap on Options in the upper left to control the various Bedtime alarm settings. At the top of this screen you can choose what days to use the Bedtime alarm on your iPhone.

Change iOS 10 Bedtime alarm settings.
Change iOS 10 Bedtime alarm settings.

Below that you can choose how early you want the Bedtime alarm notification to arrive. If you occasionally go to bed 30 to 45 minutes early or you take a long time to get ready for bed, choose an earlier notification.

Now choose the Wake Up Sound from a small number of morning inspired noises. Choose if you want the phone to vibrate and also how loud the Wake Up sound should be.

Once you’ve done all this the iPhone Bedtime alarm, and wakeup alarm, are set up and good to go. You can still set alarms on the iPhone like you normally would, which exist outside of the Bedtime alarm.
