Apple exterminates several bugs with today's release of iOS 12.0.1
Apple has released iOS 12.0.1 today, exterminating some nasty, ugly bugs that might have kept you from fully enjoying your brand new Apple iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max. One bug prevented the two new iPhone models from charging when the Lightning port was being used for the task. Wireless charging still replenished the battery. Other iPhone models running iOS 12 also were affected, but everything should be hunky dory once iOS 12.0.1 is installed.

The latest iOS build will also help an iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max select the correct Wi-Fi network to use. A bug was causing some of these models to hook up with a slower 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network instead of a faster 5GHz signal. Thus, the update to iOS 12.0.1 should help some iPhone users experience faster Wi-Fi connectivity.

Apple iPad users will notice that the "123" number key on the tablet's virtual QWERTY keyboard is back at its pre-iOS 12 location. Apple switched the position of the key with the one for emoji/language in iOS 12. But this prevented subtitles from working on some video apps, and also created an issue where Bluetooth might not work.

The changelist for iOS 12.0.1 includes:

  • Fixes an issue where some iPhone XS devices do not immediately charge when connected to a Lightning cable.
  • Resolves an issue that could cause iPhone XS devices to rejoin a Wi-Fi network at 2.4 GHz instead of 5 GHz.
  • Restores the original position of the ".?123" key on the iPad keyboard.
  • Fixes an issue where subtitles may not appear in some video apps.
  • Addresses an issue where Bluetooth could become unavailable.
To update your iOS device, go to Settings > General > Software Update.

There's No doubt that Apple software update is Generations better than Android's But the fact still remains that every IOS that ever came out has its share of various bugs . When IOS 12 came it was praised for been fast but the cons seemed to overshadow the sweet stories .. IOS 12.0.1 is out, I bet IOS users can't wait for 12.0.2 after weeks of new bug revelation.. Make me want to ask this question .. Is IOS a bug fixing Operating system ?

Well it may be true, it's better than getting a new android update months after release only to have bugs and then have to waits months or more for those bugs to get a new fix. There is no such thing as perfect software.

The only bugs that come w/ the new Android update are the ones that first come out that are generally only available for Pixels, Nexus & Essential devices. This actually makes me glad that by the time the update is available "months or more" that bugs are already out.

This isn't true, lot more new bugs going to be found after more and more different devices with different usage situation getting updated. That's the problem making bug free OS, there's so many different usage scenarios and it's impossible to find them If it not all devices are affected. Every OS have bugs, just like every 3rd apps have bugs then they get fixed and then again some user finds new bug and it gets fixed and so on.

Maybe for who you roll with, but like iushnt said, Sammy updates take forever but once they're rolled out, they're the most stable.

The Samsung updates may be slow but they are the most stable ones. Period.

Can't be the most stable period when they're numerous statistics showing Xperias and One plus devices have less bugs and os crashes on android than Samsung!

Every OS have bugs, especially when you release software for hundreds of millions devices, near billion propably. And when iPhone have bugs small or big all them are reported very wide so you get the idea that iOS have full of bugs, for most the experience is bug free. I have had zero real bugs with iOS devices ever and i used them almost ten years. Android have bugs too, no-one just report about them, but If you choose one phone and then google bugs about that you find lot of Forums where people write about bugs, no-one just doesn't care. Great thing with iOS is that If there's bug, there's also fix soon just like now. Let's start from herehttps://www.androidcentral.com/android-p-issue-tracker

Its funny that you have never experienced any bugs ever with any iOS update. Sounds unbelievable actually, as in you're lying through your teeth.

It's not funny, it's great! Most users hardly ever notice and see bugs. For most the products working without problems. I actually have never had any problem with any my phone (regular or smartphone) ever, and never sent phone for fixing because it doesn't work. And i know people who had to do that with same phones which i have had. I have had bugs with 3rd apps.

That iPad keyboard 123 button thing would have been my first noticable bug, but i think it wasn't bug and they changed the placement of that button for some weird reason and i'm happy it's now back where it should be, except now my muscle memory is again trying to push wrong button but i get used to it just i got used to new place with first iOS12

This, I believe, is what’s known as an “iPology”.

Just because you don't experience problems, doesn't mean it doesn't have any bugs. Lol. Just because there is a bug, it doesn't mean you will notice it. In fact no software is without bugs. They just fix what they find and ones that are obvious. But bugs always exist. The problem is Apple. Keeps fixing problems no one else ever had and Apple has had similar problems before. Every iPhone has had connectivity problems. Literally a million iPhone right now had the charging issue. And all the ones that have ship and sitting in box have the same issue until updated. I don't see how they missed this. Or maybe they didn't and just released the phone anyways knowing they. An fix with an update. Which they obviously have don't many times.

"Just because you don't experience problems, doesn't mean it doesn't have any bugs. Lol." I clearty started my comment saying "Every OS have bugs, especially when you release software for hundreds of millions devices, near billion propably." so which part you didn't understand?

No software is perfect. Even android also has so many bugs in any given time. The important thing is fixing them quickly just like Apple.

This was very bad, now just when i got this new placement to my muscle memory it goes back to normal place, still nice but i don't know why they moved it in first place. It's like using physical keyboard many years and suddenly someone change the ctrl place to where alt is.

My Note 9 camera freezes from time to time, I'm still waiting on a fix for it. My point being every phone has problems.

According to toosemoove that couldn't be possible, should have been fixed with pixel 2 and Nexus phones.

1, get my name right. 2, if you're gonna try to prove me wrong, quote me & them back your statement with facts: "This actually makes me glad that by the time the update is available "months or more" that bugs are already out." As in, when Pixels & others first get the latest OS update vs when Sammy & others get it. The Note 9 pretty much just came out. It's not getting Pie for at least 4 months.

"The Note 9 pretty much just came out. It's not getting Pie for at least 4 months." Exactly, it was released with very old OS and yet Note 9 have bugs, so how you can explain that? https://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2018/09/17/samsung-galaxy-note-9-camera-freeze-problem/#52be03d4571b

Because it isn't the entire OS that's causing the camera issue. It's a bug, just like what this article is about. Did I really have to point that out to you?

The note 9 you don't have. Why would we believe you have a note 9 when you hate Samsung. You do nothing but trash talk them and then you buy one, RIGHT
