One of the major fixes targets a bug that shut down permanently the iPhone 8's screen's touch functionality if the phone was repaired by third-party repair shops.

The iOS 11.3.1 update fixes this. According to Apple, iOS 11.3.1 "addresses an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone 8 devices because they were serviced with non-genuine replacement displays".

It is worth pointing out here that while Apple has released iOS 11.3.1 to fix the aftermath display issue, the company is still advising users to opt for authorised repairs.

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. Three of them allow the bad guys to take over your iOS device, while the third would allow UI spoofing, which could also lead to shenanigans. It is also being reported that Apple is trying to bring changes in order to end the "Right to Repair" that could ban the users from using any kind of third-party service for replacement of parts or even service or fix. While Android users can access Alexa with the app open on their device, this is a feature that will come to iOS, but has yet to make it through Apple's vetting process.

Details of all the latest security updates can be found on the official Apple support page. In order to download, you need to dive to Settings General Software Update and then follow the on-screen instructions carefully.

The update restores touch input for all iPhone 8 units depending third-party display panels.
