While the update was mostly criticized, at least one good thing came out of it. A much demanded feature where fans can squad up with the previous team again instead of looking up their IDs and adding them has been introduced.

Furthermore, Respawn has noticed the bugs associated with Apex Legends Update 1.1 and a patch is now being rolled out which will fix all the flaws that this update brought along.
