Apple has released a new iOS 11.1.2 update that brings some bug fixes to the iPhone and iPad lineup. The latest update will fix the iPhone X issue that some users reported earlier.
The latest update will fix the screen unresponsiveness in cold weather. The update is about 52MB in sizes and it is already available via OTA. The update also addresses an issue that causes some distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X.
To recall, Apple also confirmed that some iPhone X may become unresponsive in cold weather. Reddit user YamadaPuckah first reported the problem. He said that he has been experiencing the problem in the -2 to 5 degrees Celsius temperature there. Another Reddit users said that they experienced the problem after stepping outside in normal weather conditions so it might not just be due to the cold weather, reported the Forbes.
The user hinted that “it might have something to do with how the ambient light sensor and infrared camera on the front of the device respond to the change in lighting in combination with the lower weather temperatures”, the report added.
However, this is not the only problem in the latest iPhone. Some users have also reported the appearance of a green line while using various social media apps. Some have also reported about GPS issue. The users have said that they are facing difficulties with GPS accuracy. Users afflicted by the problem note that the location drifts away from where the user is, with the problem aggravated by high rates of speed like a car on a highway.

The iPhone X is also reportedly suffering from the same issue. As per Mac World, users have reported screen burn-in issue in which “if a static image is displayed for a long time it burns into the screen and you’re left with a faint but persistent after-image that you can’t remove.” However, Apple while acknowledging the issue, insisted that it is a problem with OLED screens.
