Apple Releases iOS 10.1.1, Bringing a Fix for an Isolated Problem with the Native Health App

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

Apple has today released iOS 10,1,1, a minor update that fixes a problem that could prevent some users from viewing data in the native Health app.

According to 9to5Mac, this was an isolated problem that did not effect all users.

As this appears to be a release to fix a specific problem, we do not expect it to include any major new features, changes or fixes for the outstanding accessibility-related problems in iOS 10.1. However, if you do encounter any changes, fixes or regressions, do please let us know by posting a comment below.

iOS 10.1.1 is available via Over-the-Air Update (Settings>General>Software Update) or via iTunes on your Mac or PC. As always, we recommend making a backup of your device before installing any iOS update.

#1 No accessibility changes

Hello everyone,
I didn't find any accessibility changes or new features in iOS 10.1.1. The update is working fine for me.

#2 Braille issues

Hello, Does anyone know if the issues with a Brailliant Bi locking up when typing in Mc6sages or Mail have been improved with Ios 10.1.1?

#3 It's not Apple's problem

Hi, this is a HumanWare issue, not an Apple one. HumanWare will have to provide the necessary driver update and, as they refuse to acknowledge this problem even exists, I doubt they'll ever do so. I stopped being a Humanware customer years ago because of issues like this that they'd not acknowledge with their other products.

#4 This is not a major update

As the subject states, we aren't going to get the wonderful things we want with Humanware or other devices suddenly being supported, or the laundry list of bugs fixed. You almost never, and i think there might've only been once, an update fixed something critical for Voice over users. So all you guys waiting for something that's not gonna come out yet, cool your jets.

#5 has this or that been fixed?

I see so many questions like this. Isn't the best way to find out, well, to try it and find out, rather than relying on others? Just back everything up before doing so, and revert back to the earlier OS, if possible. Unless you hear of broken accessibility, go for it.
