According to Apple's release notes, the update fixes an issue that caused

some iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 users to hear a crackling or static noise coming

from the earpiece during phone calls and FaceTime calls.


														
							

The bug, described by users as “very annoying,” was first discovered shortly after the launch of iOS 11, and in late September, Apple said it was working on a fix that would be released in a future update. For affected users, the only way to avoid the static sound was to use headphones or the speakerphone function, as changing cellular settings and resetting the device did not help.

Following the update to iOS 11.0.2, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus owners that have been plagued by crackling should be able to resume phone calls as normal with no further interruption. Today’s update also addresses an issue that could cause some photos to become hidden and it fixes an email bug.

iOS 11 is a major update to the iOS operating system, introducing a redesigned Lock screen experience, a new customizable Control Center, a more natural Siri voice, a redesigned App Store, new HEVC and HEIF codecs for better photo and video efficiency, and an entirely overhauled interface for the iPad.
