Apple today released iOS 11.1.2, the seventh official update to the iOS 11 operating system. iOS 11.1.2 comes just one week after Apple released iOS 11.1.1, an update that addressed a pesky and widespread autocorrect bug.

The iOS 11.1.2 update can be downloaded for free on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings --> General --> Software Update.


The iOS 11.1.2 update addresses bugs and issues that have been discovered since the release of iOS 11.1.1. According to Apple's release notes, the update addresses a bug that caused some iPhone X displays to become temporarily unresponsive when exposed to cold temperatures.
iOS 11.1.2 includes bug fixes for your iPhone and iPad. This update:
- Fixes an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop
- Addresses an issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X
- Fixes an issue that could cause your device to restart after receiving a long notification in Arabic
iOS 11.1.2 comes as Apple works on the iOS 11.2 update, which introduces Apple Pay Cash, support for faster 7.5W wireless charging on iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus, and several bug fixes and minor interface tweaks.

So just for iPhone X or all iOS devices (especially with the mention of "for your iPhone and iPad")?

I find this language in the release notes curious: "iOS 11.1.2 includes bug fixes for your iPhone and iPad." Probably just their stock release notes text as most do apply to both classes of device and not just one. But makes you wonder...

Well its not showing up on any of my devices (iPhone X or iPad), so I'm sure posting about it will solve all my issues.

Unrelated to the message (and happy to see this update as my wife just had this happen to her this morning), there is a typo near the end of the post - "bug fiexes" instead of "bug fixes."

Hard to believe this wasn't tested and known about before shipment... wonder what else they know that might go wrong in the near future
It doesn’t happen every time. I’ve had my iPhone X for a week where it’s been freezing cold and it only happened to me once.

A product cannot be tested by millions of people covering all usage scenarios. That’s why we have bug fixing point updates.

The update is for all iOS devices. Apple never lists all the bug fixes in their release notes.

Yep, just getting it now for 7 Plus. The "and iPad" part didn't make sense if it was X-only.
