The latest update is out right here for the newly released iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models which include a bug fix that was a high priority requirement.
The bug fix was prioritized to make temporary cellular cut-outs be a memory of the past for the users of the iPhone 7 models. The bug had turned up in not all, but some of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices as soon as they were out in the market for the first few weeks.
This is the latest update that has been added to the long list of the newly added features and updates to the iOS family of devices. However, it will not be available for all the iPhone models and for the iPads. The new update has been exclusively aimed at the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models only. There is a possibility that the new update might arrive for the other devices also, but it is far more likely to be available only for the higher versions which run on the updated iOS version 10.0.3.
Voice over LTE Feature
Previously, before this update for the cellular cut-outs had arrived for the iPhone users, the only solution available was to turn-off the Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE), which is a standard for the high-speed wireless communication system for mobile phones and data terminals. The concept is based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network feature to get the data reception. The users who have disabled the Voice over LTE will have to turn it on back to gain the network reception after updating with the latest version of the iOS. The Voice over LTE feature will have to be turned on manually, as it will not enable itself on its own.
To update the iPhone with this latest version 10.0.3 of the iOS, the users will have to look for the Settings menu on their iPhone 7 devices. The users will now have to click on “General”, and then click on Software Update. Another way of updating to the latest version is by connecting the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus devices to the Mac computers and update using the iTunes.
This speedy update and bug fix prove that Apple is always alert at fixing issues and shows how important it is for the company to keep a tight control over the iOS. Off late, there have been reports suggesting that even the Google Pixel smartphones will be doing something similar.
There was another recent discovery made in the software department of the iPhone 7 which had to do with the Home button of the device. With the iOS 10, the users will now find an on-screen Home button being displayed on the phone’s screen in case the physical Home button does not work. When the physical Home button stops working, the device will say that “the home button may need some service” and “In the meantime, you can use the on-screen Home button below”.
