Apple Releases iOS 11.1.2 With Fix for Unresponsive iPhone X Display in Cold Temperatures

Apple today released iOS 11.1.2, the seventh official update to the iOS 11 operating system. iOS 11.1.2 comes just one week after Apple released iOS 11.1.1, an update that addressed a pesky and widespread autocorrect bug.

The iOS 11.1.2 update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings --> General --> Software Update.


The iOS 11.1.2 update addresses bugs and issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 11.1.1. According to Apple's release notes, the update addresses a bug that caused some iPhone X displays to become temporarily unresponsive when exposed to cold temperatures.
iOS 11.1.2 includes bug fixes for your iPhone and iPad. This update:
- Fixes an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop
- Addresses an issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X
- Fixes an issue that could cause your device to restart after receiving a long notification in Arabic
iOS 11.1.2 comes as Apple works on the iOS 11.2 update, which introduces Apple Pay Cash, support for faster 7.5W wireless charging on iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus, and several bug fixes and minor interface tweaks.

Got to give them credit....they are churning out updates at a pretty high clip these days to try and squash as many of these big bugs as possible.

Idaho here, installed and tested by placing the X in the refrigerator, it works, but it made me make a sandwich!

Quite hysterical that people on the Android side whine and complain about the LACK of updates, yet here we are in iOS land, with updates quick and plenty to make things better, and most of you are whining about it!

Figures...

Hard to believe this wasn't tested and known about before shipment... wonder what else they know that might go wrong in the near future

You people complain if they update stuff, complain if they don't, and complain if they have too many updates.

Go to Android. I got 1 update in 3 years with my Note and a TON of stuff was broken.

Yes, because the lab where they work on these devices is 30 degrees? That seems like a pretty weird thing to test considering no other iPhones have had this issue.

Hopefully either this update or 11.2 will fix the ever annoying disappearing clock and notifications...

Ever give a thought what you just wrote? You just meant Android is more stable than iOS. 4 updates within 2 months is amazing? Rather 0 updates without bugs fixes than plagued with bugs which needs to be fixed.

He didn't mean any such thing. It is you who interpreted it incorrectly.
