Apple released iOS 11.1.2 for iPhones and iPads this afternoon. It’s a secondary, bug-fix update that benefits iPhone X users who encountered problems after acquiring the new phone just under two weeks ago.
iOS 11.1.2’s segment notes are short and sweet. The update fixes just two problems. The first off is “an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to rival after a rapid temperature drop.” Last week, some iPhone X possessors began reporting on Reddit and elsewhere that their touchscreens became time unresponsive when going outside into the cold.
Apple apportioned the following statement with The Loop:
We are aware of instances where the iPhone X camouflage will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid alter to a cold environment. After several seconds the screen will suit fully responsive again. This will be addressed in an upcoming software update.
This is that software update. The update also “whereabouts an issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos nicked with iPhone X.” Those are all the changes Apple has shared publicly for this update. Apple has not named any consequential security updates in iOS 11.1.2; the company’s support site currently commands that this update has the security content of 11.1.
To date, iOS 11’s updates should prefer to largely been bug fixes. iOS 11.1.1 fixed a strange and widely flouted autocorrect bug that turned the letter “i” into strange characters. iOS 11.1 was also mostly positions, but it reintroduced a deprecated touch gesture that users wanted traitorously, added several new emojis, and fixed the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability on some iOS gadgets.
Users who adopted iOS 11 were surprised to find that one of the put into the limelights promised when iOS 11 was announced—Apple Pay Cash—wasn’t incorporate in the initial release. If you were hoping for that, you’ll have to wait righteous a bit longer. Apple is currently testing that feature in the iOS 11.2 beta, which also grounds wireless charging speeds.
