Apple has just released iOS 11.3.1 update to the general public. You can download it for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch below.
What’s new in iOS 11.3.1?
iOS 11.3.1 is a minor update that aims to do just one thing – enables third-party screen replacements to work. For those who don’t know, non-original displays did not respond to input in iOS 11.3.
The build number is 15E302 and it weighs 49.5MB on the iPhone X, which indicates not much has changed in this update.
There are no performance improvements or fixes whatsoever in this version.
Despite its size, iOS 11.3.1 patches CVE-2018-4206 vulnerability discovered by Ian Beer of Google Project Zero.
This update also patches CVE-2018-4200 and CVE-2018-4204 vulnerabilities present in WebKit.
Since this is a public release, you can download and install it directly via OTA. If for some reason you want to upgrade via computer, download the appropriate IPSW file below and fire up iTunes.

Should you upgrade?
As is evident, this update is easily skippable owing to its size. If you are looking to get a screen replacement sometime down the line, I suggest updating.
As far as jailbreak enthusiasts are concerned, don’t forget to save your SHSH Blobs.
