Apple has announced that a software update will fix an issue that causes the iPhone X to briefly become unresponsive when moved to a cold environment.
Reddit user darus214 explains:
I’ve noticed that my iPhone X screen becomes very unresponsive as soon as I step outside. It literally takes 2 seconds from going inside to the cold outdoors and my screen stops being very responsive. I try swiping on websites and it doesn’t register my finger. It’s very noticeable. Is anyone else having this problem?
It appears as though Apple was already aware of this problem and released the following statement to The Loop.
“We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment. After several seconds the screen will become fully responsive again. This will be addressed in an upcoming software update.”
iOS 11.1.1 was released today to fix some issues with auto-correct and Hey Siri. We'll let you know when the next firmware release becomes available.
