Apple releases bug fix so you can finally use the iPhone X in cold weather


The launch of the iPhone X was not as uneventful as the that of the other iPhones released by Apple this year. Many customers found weird issues with Apple's flagship, some more serious than others.

Last week we reported about such an issue that made the iPhone X screen become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment. At that time, Apple promised to address the problem in an upcoming software update, but aside from that, no other information was provided.

True to its promise, Apple has now released an update that fixes the iPhone X screen issue that some users reported. It's worth mentioning that iOS 11.1.2 includes just two bug fixes, both aimed at the iPhone X, and no new features.

We've already told you about one of them, so let's see what the second one does. Well, according to Apple, the update should also address an issue the could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X.

If you own the iPhone X, you'll be pleased to know that this isn't a large download, as the update weighs in at 33MB. So, tap that “Software update” button and get those bugs fixed.

Is this the same website as fonearena which was best tech/mobile/smartph website in the world around 5 6 yrs back? 5 minutes on this website show that phonearena is an illegal front of apple to propogate propaganda to make apple get more sales from all the hype?

Uhm, what are you talking about? Mind sharing the backup of what you saw? Right now, EXIF information for each photo is gone, how did you check? Please kindly do share. If you're indeed right, this will be yet another major example of this site going thigh whatever dishonest means necessary to put the iPhone at an advantage. They've done it several times before.

Wow, talk about ultimate propaganda. Nevermind showing me what you mean. Now that they have reached this level of dishonesty, even their blind camera comparisons hold absolutely 0 credibility. Thank you VERY much for shearing, lesson learned. Even more reasons to only come to this site for the comments, NEVER reviews nor comparisons.

Just curious, I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the site due to it being favorable toward Apple, so why do the same people keep visiting the site? Why do the same people keep reading Apple articles? If I’m not interested in a certain phone, I don’t click on the article....pretty simple.

Smart people refuse to live in an information bubble and don't only go to sources that backup their own biases. You can't know if you are or aren't interested in something, or effectively compare and contrast it, unless you click on it and are fully informed. Much like most newspapers, PA has entertainment value regardless of its accuracy and people are free to comment on it. Unlike several other biased news sites, PA doesn't portray itself as biased. They deny any bias. Meaning, they should be happy when people highlight bias form them. That's assistance for readers. Retreat is never a way to affect change.

My wife said the same thing, guess the update could only be for the best. Dude, I'm really starting to like her phone after playing around with it.

Welcome to the party PA. Better late then never with news. At least it’s only smart phones and nothing really important.

Unless and until Apple says what was causing this, and how the fix fixes it, I am dubious. Apple's green line (or Google's color palette) are software problems that can, theoretically be fixed in an update. This sounds like a hardware issue and, like "you're holding it wrong", hardware issues do not lend themselves to software fixes. The only possibility I could think of for a software fix is to crank up the CPU to 100% usage so that it heats the phone. Maybe they can set it up to mine Bitcoins for Apple's offshore accounts.
