Below we will look at all the problems iOS 11 found so far and suggest solutions.

#1. Missing iOS 11 in Software Update

If you have not received the update iOS 11 in General> Software Update, check the list of compatible devices from iOS 11. The update is not supported by the following models:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 5c
  • iPad 3
  • iPad 4

It is possible that the update iOS 11 did not come due to the fact that you have iOS 11 GM installed. Since the build number iOS 11 GM and iOS 11 are the same, the update may not be available as it is simply not needed.
