iOS 11 is Apple’s Vista

I’ve had problems with iOS, Apple’s operating system for iPhones and iPads, for ages. In particular, it has seemed as if every new update would break Wi-Fi networking in a new and interesting way. But iOS 11 — well, iOS 11 is special.

Ever since iOS 11 rolled out in September 2017, it’s been one thing after another. Let us count the ways.

Bad batteries

Within the first week of iOS arriving, Apple had to release its first patch, 11.0.1. Why? Because users complained that their battery life had fallen through the floor. They were right. Mobile security company Wandera documented that iOS 11 was a battery killer. Examining a “subset of 50,000 moderate to heavy iPhone and iPad users” on its networks running iOS 11 and iOS 10, the company found that the batteries of iOS 11 users were draining over twice as fast as iOS 10 users’ batteries.

Keyboard craziness

Don’t ask me how, but with iOS 11.0, when you typed in the letter i, it autocorrected to the letter A, plus a symbol. I mean, how do you mess up something like this? This isn’t UI 101, it’s UI 1: When you press a key, you should get the letter or symbol that corresponds to that key.
