This week, iOS 11 was pushed to Apple devices around the world, and has brought a few compatibility issues. That’s the case of Miitomo, but also Pokémon GO, and more precisely the Pokémon GO Plus accessory. Users who have upgraded are reporting that the accessory do not register a button press until after the LED indicator has flashed three times.
