IPhone X screens experiencing problems in cold weather; Apple working on fix

And speaking of iOS 11.2, AppleInsider reports that users have begun having problems with Global Positioning System accuracy on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, but a fix appears imminent in iOS 11.2.

It's worth noting that the cold has been known to affect phone screens with users of older Lumias in the past also commenting on their screens being unresponsive in the cold.

Users reported the keyboard would become unresponsive under certain circumstances.

Officially, Apple recommends that you use your phone in temperatures of 0º and 35º C but even when that's the case, some users have found that the phone becomes pretty much entirely unresponsive when you move from somewhere warm to somewhere cold.

'It literally takes 2 seconds from going inside to the cold outdoors and my screen stops being very responsive.

Apple has acknowledged the issue and says it surfaces when the iPhone X faces a rapid change in temperature. "It's very noticeable. Is anyone else having this problem?", Reddit user darus214 wrote. This indicates the problem isn't related to the hardware itself, leaving a software bug of some sort as the likely cause. Several seconds are needed for the OLED to be working again.

A fix was said to be just around the corner, and sure enough: Apple has just sent out a patch that fixes that rando-replacement once and for all. iOS 11.1.1 is now available, with this fix marked as the flagship feature.

The company has announced it will try to fix the issue in an upcoming software update following reports that phones become unresponsive as soon as they are taken outside.

Until you install the update, many iPhones will continue to autocorrect the letter "i" to ⍰ or a capitalised letter "A". If the bug has been affecting you, go grab iOS 11.1.1 to rid yourself of the issue.
