iOS 11.1.2 is now available for download. Included is a fix for an iPhone X bug that would cause the device’s touchscreen to become temporarily unresponsive when taken out into the cold. This update also fixes a bug that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with the iPhone X.
While this update is focused on fixing iPhone X bugs, it’s available to all iOS 11 devices. If you’ve got an iPhone or iPad on iOS 11, go into Settings > General > Software Update to begin downloading iOS 11.1.2.
Winter and cold temperatures are getting closer and closer for a lot of people, and that means that this iPhone X touchscreen bug was likely to become more widespread and more annoying. Apple responded with a fix about one week after reports of the issue began popping up, though, so it looks like iPhone X owners won’t have to worry about their shiny new smartphone becoming unresponsive just because it has to go outside during winter.
