But of course, those who are more interested in the fact if they can downgrade iOS 11.0.2 will be pleased to learn that they can do so right away.

It is reported that iOS 11.0.2 fixes problems with the sound during phone calls in iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The release comes just a week after Apple released iOS 11.0.1, which featured minor bug fixes not large enough for Apple to identify individually.

However, the scanning technology used for the new Animoji and iPhone X Face ID relies heavily on the camera, which is known to suck battery life, she wrote in an online post.

The most important fix remedies an issue with iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices, where some users experienced "annoying" static and crackling noises during phone calls through the front-facing earpiece. That's what happened with iOS 11, as users are reporting that they're having massive problems with 3D touch features and a very frustrating stutter. According to the report, those who said that their next smartphone will be iPhone, their number has dropped to 24.2 percent in September, which was 25.8 percent during the launch of the iPhone 7 in 2013 and 31.4 percent in 2015. Now we have another test of the latest version of iOS.

Once the iPhone 8 went on sale, some analysts said that their sluggish sales could be attributed to people waiting for the iPhone X. The iPhone X comes with a revamped design, a screen that almost covers its face and a new Face ID feature to verify a person's identity.

But, that isn't the only problem. Of course, this is a rough generalization and the results will vary for each device, but the stats show that there is a real problem that is yet to be fixed by Apple. In the pictures, we can see the aluminium frames getting detached from the body, suggesting possible battery issues with the phone.

Apple's iOS 11 brought a lot of freezing to iDevices, and the 11.0.1 patch didn't solve anything.
