Recently this week, Apple has started rolling out iOS 11.1.2, which is basically the follow up to the version 11.1.1 that was released a little more than a week ago. Just like that earlier software update, iOS 11.1.2 comes with a fix for a specific issue related to the iPhone X’s display. Just a few days ago, some owners of iPhone X devices were reporting that their screens were becoming unresponsive in cold temperatures. The bug usually manifested itself when users were moving from warm weather (like inside houses or buildings) to colder weather (outdoors in countries like Canada). Apart from delivering a fix for the screen unresponsiveness on the iPhone X, the iOS 11.1.2 update also comes with a patch for a certain issue that involves visual distortion on Live Photos and video footage shot using Apple’s flagship device for this year.
The cold weather related issues with the iPhone X were reportedly happening when the device was brought outside in temperatures of 50 degrees Fahrenheit (or less). Because of the inconsistency in the screen responsiveness, users had a hard time composing text, or even launching mobile apps. Others have believed that perhaps Apple simply needed to reset the the iPhone X’s calibration in terms of temperature variance sensitivity, while others noted that considering the device is the tech giant’s first attempt at an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display screen, there were bound to be some adjustments in its settings. Regardless of the underlying cause, Apple has done well in quickly acknowledging and addressing the issue.
Screen related issues have been grabbing some headlines lately, especially with this year’s high profile smartphone releases. Aside from the screen unresponsiveness of the iPhone X in cold temperatures, some units of this particular iPhone model also displayed a curious vertical green line on their screen. The green line actually was reminiscent of a pink line also observed in Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge earlier this year. One of Google’s flagship offerings this year, the Pixel 2 XL, has its own set of display problems. Apparently, some owners of the Pixel 2 XL were complaining of seeing burn-in on the device’s screen. Google has since rolled out a fix earlier this month for that bug. Apart from burn-in issues, some units of the Pixel 2 XL also showed a strange bluish hue, especially when viewed from a certain angle.
