You might recall that two weeks ago, after Apple had pushed out the iOS 12.1.1 update, several iPhone users complained about losing cellular data connectivity with their wireless carriers. Last week, when Apple disseminated iOS 12.1.2, the update included a fix for "an issue that could affect cellular connectivity in Turkey for iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max."
Now, Forbes is stating that iOS 12.1.2 is bringing on new connectivity issues for owners of various iPhone models in multiple countries. One Twitter user in Miami with the handle @kevbrush, tweeted that after installing iOS 12.1.2 he had no cellular data connection. He tried resetting the network settings and resetting his phone, but to no avail. He also tried reinserting his SIM card, and that also failed to work. His phone still cannot receive cellular data. An iPhone user in Ireland tweeted that after updating her iPhone 7 to the latest iOS build, her phone says "No Service" and she cannot connect to her carrier.
Reports like these are coming in from all over the globe, and as we mentioned, they are not limited to the 2018 models. And it would appear from the Tweets we've seen that iPhone users in the U.S. might be affected the worse. Of course, the irony here is that part of the reason why Apple rushed out iOS 12.1.2 was to fix a similar connectivity problem in Turkey.
So if you own an iPhone model that can no longer connect to mobile data after installing iOS 12.1.2, don't be surprised to see iOS 12.1.3 rushed out early this coming week. Or perhaps Apple will add it to all the gifts and presents that Santa will be carrying on his sleigh Monday night.
