The Apple iPhone X was reported with a very interesting issue lately, where its screen became unresponsive in cold weather. After this was reported last week, Apple acknowledged the issue, and promised to rollout a patch for the problem. Keeping its promise, Apple has now released an update that fixes the iPhone X screen issue that some users reported. This fix is a part of the new iOS 11.1.2 update.

The update though rolled out to Apple iPhone 5S and later, includes just two bug fixes, both aimed at the iPhone X, and no new features. The other patch in the update fixes the issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X.


You can find the update by following these steps – Settings -> General -> Software Update. Apple had also released many bug fixes with iOS 11 for problems like pictures blurring, live photo effects playing slow, among others. Apple also fixed issues like cleared Mail notifications re-appearing on lock screen. DON’T MISS: Apple iPhone X first impressions: When you have to control your emotions

The update comes just a week after the iOS 11.1.1 rollout, which primarily fixed weird auto-correct bug with the letter ‘i’ in iOS. Many users started complaining about a bug that caused an error on the iOS keyboard as they couldn’t type the letter “i”. When the letter “i” was typed on the keyboard, it would be autocorrected to unicode [?] symbol. The update also came with a bug fix for “Hey Siri” command not working on some devices. iOS 11.1.1 update was about 53.5MB in size, so if you didn’t download that and are directly going for the 11.1.2, the update will weigh heavier for you. ALSO READ: Google Pixel 2 XL Vs Apple iPhone X Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Camera Comparison
