How to Download iOS 11.3.1 :

You have three methods to choose from but, should you be hoping for a jailbreak in the near future, you should avoid the first method.

Before You Begin :

Two of these methods require iTunes and, as such, you need to ensure you are using the most up to date version.  Here’s how:

  1. Open iTunes and click on Help > Check for Updates 
  2. Wait while iTunes looks for an update and if there is one, follow the on-screen instructions to update.
  3. And, no matter which of these methods you opt for, back your data up using iTunes and | or iCloud before you start.

Method 1: OTA [ Over The Air ]

This method is the quickest way of updating but is not compatible with jailbreaking:

  1. Open Settings on your iOS device
  2. Tap General > Software Update 
  3. Wait for iOS 11.3.1 to be found
  4. On the popup message, tap on Download > Install 
  5. Wait until your device reboots and the update has been installed successfully

Method 2: iTunes Update

  1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and open iTunes
  2. Tap the Device Summary for the connected iOS device [ if you have more than one device registered in iTunes ]
  3. Click Update > Install 
  4. Wait while iTunes updates your device to iOS 11.3.1 and then reboots 

Method 3: iTunes using IPSW File

  1. Download the iOS 11.3.1 IPSW that matches your specific device [ links below ]
  2. Plug your iPhone or iPad into your computer and open iTunes, if it doesn’t automatically open
  3. If you have more than one device registered, click the Device Summary of the connected device 
  4. Now press SHIFT [ Windows ] or ALT [ Mac ] key on your keyboard while clicking on Restore in iTunes at the same time 
  5. Find the IPSW that you downloaded and click it 
  6. Click Install and wait while iTunes updates your iOS device
  7. When the update has been installed successfully, your device will reboot

iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak Update :

Jailbreaks have not been too successful in the last year or so and there is no reason to believe that things are going to change much now. However, with Apple’s attention turning to WWDC 2018 and the next generation of iOS firmware, there is a slim chance that the jailbreak developers may be able to produce something in the future, without having to worry too much about it being knocked on the head by an update. For those that really are missing their Cydia tweaks, we do have some alternatives; a few third-party app installers have been released, each with something from Cydia and plenty of paid apps for free. Have a look at these two and see what you think :
