Apple has released another new update. iOS 17.1 was recently released, which included numerous new features. But in between, iOS 17.1.1 will also come along, which is now ready for you. In addition, iPadOS 17.1.1 can be downloaded for the tablets. The version numbers already show that there are no new features, but only bug fixes. What exactly has been resolved? You can read that here!
The latest iOS update is currently being rolled out. It may therefore take a while before the update is visible to you. Usually Apple rolls out the updates from 7:00 PM Dutch time. There is no point in reporting in the comments that you have not yet seen the update. See also our article on iOS installation issues.
iOS 17.1.1 and iPadOS 17.1.1 were released
Some iPhone users have recently encountered some problems. For example, some users are still experiencing WiFi problems, which according to Apple should at least be solved in iOS 17.2.
Some users also experience a problem that causes the iPhone to spontaneously restart during the night while it is on the charger. It is not entirely clear whether these bugs have now been resolved. The release notes of iOS 17.1.1 (build number 21B91) only mention these two problems by name:
This update provides bug fixes for your iPhone including:
– In rare circumstances, Apple Pay and other NFC features may become unavailable on iPhone 15 models after wireless charging in certain cars
– Weather Lock Screen widget may not correctly display snow
The addition ‘including’ gives the impression that more bugs have been fixed that are not mentioned. In any case, what we do know is that the NFC problem in some BMWs and Toyotas should now be solved. When charging your iPhone on a wireless charging mat in the car, the NFC chip was broken, causing Apple Pay to no longer work.
The fact that the weather widget did not provide data was already problematic on the Apple Watch, but people also had a problem on the iPhone. In places where it was snowing, a ‘blank page’ icon was visible instead of a snow icon. Apple has now addressed this. These or other bugs may have been addressed in this update. We also expect that security has been further improved.

Why don’t I see the update (yet)?
It may sometimes take a while before you see the update on your device. This has to do with the fact that Apple is rolling out these updates in phases. You can read about this in this article: This is why it takes longer for iOS updates to be installed automatically. If you still can’t update iOS after a while, read our article on iOS installation problems.
Please note: keep responses on-topic, concrete and clear for others. Personal status updates on whether your download has started/successfully add nothing to the discussion. It may also take a little longer
