iOS 7.1.1 update problems after install

How are you getting on with the iOS 7.1.1 download on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch? Earlier on this week we told you that the iOS 7.1.1 update had gone live, after initial teases and hints that Apple were planning on issuing a fresh version of their mobile software.

The pleasing thing to note straight away, is that we have seen a lot of feedback from consumers who have said that iOS 7.1.1 has fixed many of their problems. However, we have also seen some specific issues from consumers who are still reporting iOS 7.1.1 problems during and after installation.

First of all, it looks like many consumers are having problems actually trying to install iOS 7.1.1 onto their device. One Tweet below shows evidence of this, but we have also picked out a more detailed complaint over on Apple’s support forums, in which one user states that he has been unable to install iOS 7.1.1 on iPhone 4 over WiFi for two days.

It appears that this problem is specifically related to Windows not being able to identify Apple’s update, a problem that can often be fixed by reinstalling iTunes.

On a more serious matter, another complaint on Apple’s forums tells the story of one user who actually ended up with a bricked device after installing the iOS 7.1.1 download. Even worse, the affected user also says that after the issue occurred he was unable to restore data as well, preventing a fix from being made.

It’s important to note that these are isolated cases and not everyone is having problems with iOS 7.1.1. The majority of users are enjoying Apple’s latest update without any issues, but it looks like there are still some issues affecting a minority.

If you have encountered iOS 7.1.1 problems after updating on iPad or iPhone, get in touch with us below.
