    Apple is today releasing iOS 12.0.1, the first official update to the iOS 12 operating system. iOS 12.0.1 comes three weeks after Apple released iOS 12.

    The update will be available on all eligible devices over-the-air in the Settings app. To access the update, go to Settings --> General --> Software Update. iOS 12 users should be able to download iOS 12.0.1 when it is released at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

    Today's update fixes several high profile bugs that have been plaguing iOS 12 users. It resolves an issue that could cause some iPhone XS devices not to charge when connected to a Lightning cable, an issue that was discovered shortly after iOS 12 was released.

    Reports suggested multiple iOS 12 devices were affected rather than just the iPhone XS, and it's likely that if other devices are impacted, the new update solves the problem.

    iOS 12.0.1 also fixes a major Wi-Fi bug that could cause some iPhone XS devices to prefer to join a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network rather than a 5GHz Wi-Fi network, resulting in perceived slower Wi-Fi connection speeds. After this update, many users who were stuck with their phones connecting to a 2.4GHz network should see much faster Wi-Fi connection speeds as the devices once again prefer a 5GHz network.

    Other bug fixes in this update include a reorientation of the "123" number key on the iPad, which was moved in the iOS 12 update and swapped with the emoji/language key, a fix for a problem that could cause subtitles not to appear in some video apps, and an issue where Bluetooth could become unavailable.

    Many of these bugs have also been addressed in the upcoming iOS 12.1 update that is currently being beta tested by developers and public beta testers.

    Apple's full release notes for the update are below:
    The new iOS 12 update introduces a slew of new features like Siri Shortcuts for creating voice-controlled automations, Screen Time for monitoring your iOS device usage, Memoji on devices with a TrueDepth camera, improvements to Do Not Disturb and notifications, ARKit 2.0, privacy enhancements, and more.

    Nothing about the LTE issue. Hoping it's just hidden in there somewhere. We'll see.

    I hadn’t even noticed the iPad “.123?” Button had moved. But now that I think about it I was getting the emoji keyboard far more often than usual

    It is not 9AM in California. Remember the solar panels on top of the Apple spaceship first have to catch sufficient sunshine before the servers can start.

    And... Apple staff needs enough coffee

    This change has annoyed the **** out of me when typing on the iPad! Glad they'll be reverting it back to how it was on iOS 11.

    I have a 8 plus and I had lots of issues with WIFI, especially the 2.4g vs 5g thing as soon as I installed ios 12, so its not just XS phones.

    Umm excuse me MacRumors, but people here said it was hardware, Apple's QA had completely slipped, and this would never have happened under Jobs' command. I was shocked to read this as people are normally so positive.

    Are you refuting their claims?

    If your wifi router has the 2.4g and 5g bands. For me it was when I am connected to the 5g band. its just spins and won't connect and drops out and connects to the slower 2.4g.
