Your handset should continue to function normally after you've updated, but Apple still warns that you should avoid third-party screen replacements.

If you want to update your device to iOS 11.3.1 now, you can do so by heading to Settings General Software Update on your device and tapping "Download and Install" at the bottom of the page.

Apple released a bug fixing update to the public today, addressing issues including unresponsive touch input with third-part replacement displays.

Almost one month after launching iOS 11.3 to the public, Apple has unleashed a minor follow-up update.

There's no indication on whether the unexpected "bricking" was a result of an oversight or bug on Apple's part, or if the company is simply responding to the negative publicity surrounding the initial iOS 11.3 update. The iOS 11.3 is one of the major updates being rolled out to the iOS devices. The company also encourages customers to have their fix performed by Apple-certified technicians using genuine parts. All that ultimately pushed Apple to bring the new update that comes just in a month after the original iOS 11.3 release. The bugs were spotted after the release of the iOS 11.3 update.

However, it also went on to warn iPhone users not to use third-party fix shops. "Yet, Apple doesn't make the replacement screens available to the thousands of fix shops that people take those phones to in order to be fixed", said U.S. PIRG's Nathan Proctor, Director of their campaign for the Right to fix.

Many engineers have speculated that the cause of most of Apple's errors surrounding third-party components is thanks to Apple restricting access to the special tool known as Horizon, that enables permissions to confirm on the device that the new parts belong to it.
