Apple has finally solved the loading problems on its new smartphone iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The company released Tuesday the iOS 12.0.1 update, which also includes bug fixes and improvements for iPhones and iPads. This is the first update for iOS 12, which was released just three weeks ago.
This is the first bug fix update for iOS 12 and iPhone XS since they were released in September. Apple details five issues with iOS 12 that were fixed in iOS 12.0.1 according to the release notes already marked by a tipster:
- Fixes a problem that prevented some iPhone XS devices from charging immediately when connected to a Lightning cable.
- Fixes a problem that could cause iPhone XS devices to join 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 a problem where subtitles may not appear in some video applications.
- Fixes an issue where Bluetooth might become unavailable.
The loading issues of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been widely reported soon after the arrival of the new hardware on the market. The problem was that the display was turned on and the Lightning cable was connected to ensure the load was going as expected in some situations. The new version of iOS is expected to resolve several reported issues, including the fact that in at least some cases, a device will not load when it connects to a Lightning cable.
The update will also fix a small Wi-Fi connection issue that forced some iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices to connect to a slower 2.4 GHz band when a faster 5 GHz connection was available.
To download the software update, iPhone users must go to Settings> General. Click download and install. The last update is over 150 MB. So you can consider switching to Wi-Fi to back up your mobile data. As with any new software update, it is strongly recommended that you keep a backup of your data.
