You can now download iOS 11.1.2 either as IPSW links or as OTA update for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

Apple’s latest public release features multiple bug fixes and performance updates, including an immediate fix for the iPhone X unresponsive screen issue which has been affecting certain devices at the lower-end of the operating temperature scale.

Apple currently has iOS 11.2 in a pre-release state, which means that compatible device owners can expect a release sooner-rather-than-later containing some more impressive features and functionality, such as the initial beta of Apple Pay Cash and the availability of SiriKit for Apple’s new HomePod firmware due for release next month. Today’s iOS 11.1.2 on the other-hand is an interim release which looks to resolve one issue in particular with immediate effect, meaning that iPhone X owners won’t have to wait until iOS 11.2 has passed through Apple’s QA process and been signed off for release.

As you may already know, it recently came to light that a number of iPhone X owners had been experiencing issues interacting with the stunning OLED display on the devices in or around temperatures close to 0-degrees. Apple has an operating temperature guide that stipulates iPhone should work within temperatures ranging from 0-degrees to 35-degrees Celsius, but it appears that certain new units had been temporarily failing before going under that lower threshold. The behavior seemed to be that the screen would freeze and become unresponsive for a quick second before regaining its senses and responding to the user’s touch. Not the biggest problem in the world but definitely an annoying one to live with.

Apple had previously acknowledged the issue and advised that a software patch would be issued to resolve it. And now that patch is here for all iPhone X units, as well as other compatible iOS devices, which should hopefully take away the issue immediately. Hopefully, that will put an end to the development of #coldgate before it’s even had a chance to find its feet.

Anyone with iPhone X who has been experiencing the issue, or any compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owner, is able to grab the latest iOS 11.1.2 release right now by launching the native Settings app and navigating to General > Software Update.
