The Apple released the iOS 12.0.1 recently. With a focus on iOS 12 bug fixes released in September , the new version solves a problem that prevented the immediate loading of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max when connecting the phone to the original cable. In addition, the update brings adjustments to the Wi-Fi connection of the latest iPhone models and solution to other minor glitches on all devices with the system. The update is free and available for the same list of iOS 12 compatible devices: from the iPhone 5S , iPad Air and iPad Mini 2 on, and the 6th generation iPod Touch .
Reports on the problem of charging began to emerge shortly after the arrival of the iPhone XS in the American market. Some youtubers have even posted videos reproducing the flaw. According to testimonials posted on forums and social networks, the failure is intermittent and does not occur on all the latest iPhone units.
The fix for the iPhone XS loading bug was one of the expected new features for iOS 12.1, which is still in the testing phase. Instead, Apple accelerated the solution to the problem and launched into a minor update dedicated only to fixing bugs. In addition to the problem in the battery, the new system prevents the cell phone from connecting to a 2.4 GHz network instead of 5 GHz.
For older iPhone models, the update is intended to fix fixes that resolve captioning errors on some video players, and fixes a problem with Bluetooth connectivity. The position of the number modifier key on the iPad’s virtual keyboard has also been restored.
To upgrade , simply open the Settings app and access the “General” menu> “Software Update”. The device must be connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Apple reserves some new features for iOS 12.1, a version still in the testing phase. In addition to the usual bug fixes, the update should bring features to FaceTime and Memojis , and bring improvements in Portrait Mode. Apple has also confirmed that the software will bring a selection of more than 70 new emojis to use. There is no release forecast yet.
