Apple releases iOS 12.0.1 to fix charging and WiFi bugs
Oct 10 2018
This is the first update to iOS 12 which was rolled out just three weeks ago.
Apple'siOS 12.0.1 update "fixes an issue where some iPhone XS devices did not immediately charge when connected to a Lightning cable", reads the latest change log. How do you like the iPhone XS Max? Thus, the update to iOS 12.0.1 should help some iPhone users experience faster Wi-Fi connectivity.
It's worth noting that anecdotal user reports suggested that this software bug could be addressed by a full iTunes restore without a backup. After digging deeper, users also discovered that the iPhone XS sometimes joined Wi-Fi networks that were available in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands in 2.4GHz even though the phones support 5GHz. Now, with iOS 12.1, Apple is hoping to take the platform to the next level by ironing out issues as well as introducing multiple promised features.
The new update also includes fixes for more minor bugs, including an issue that caused subtitles not to appear on certain video apps and another that may have made Bluetooth unavailable in certain circumstances. Instead, they'd only do so if the screen was active when the charging was initiated.
If you are a registered developer or happen to have a beta configuration profile installed on your device, then you can grab iOS 12.1 beta 3 with immediate effect as an OTA update from Settings General Software Update section of the device in order to put it through its paces.
