IPhone X Suffering From Cold Weather Screen Freezing, Apple Software Fix Inbound

IPhone X Suffering From Cold Weather Screen Freezing, Apple Software Fix Inbound

Apple has issued a statement to Loop In Sight that says it has already heard the reports of the issue, but that it's often the case that the screen unresponsiveness stops on its own after a few moments.

Some iPhone X owners have been reporting this problem on the iPhone subreddit over the last day or so. The post adds further, "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.

This one apparently affects only iPhone X users, and it's nowhere near as widespread as the keyboard glitch among early adopters of the fancy new "all-screen" device anyway. "It's very noticeable. Is anyone else having this problem?" asked darus214. This indicates the problem isn't related to the hardware itself, leaving a software bug of some sort as the likely cause.

DOCTOR WHO Reveals the New Costume for Jodie Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor
Released this morning via the Beeb's official Doctor Who Twitter account, the unexpected image quickly gained global attention. The coat lining matching the graphic on the shirt is a lovely touch, but this is a very interesting look for a new Doctor.

Apple confirmed the issue in an email to CBC News on Friday, but said it will soon send out an easy fix for the problem.

After complaints started surfacing that the OLED display of the iPhone X get unresponsive at low temperatures, Apple acknowledged the issue. All we know is some iPhone X units become unresponsive seconds after changing ambient temperature, which is unacceptable given that winter is coming.

In a tweet, Apple said people could "fix it by installing the latest software update". Apple's own website says that iOS devices work best in temperatures above freezing, and using them in cold weather can "temporarily shorten battery life" or cause the device to suddenly shut off. Most probably, the fix will come in iOS 11.2, which is now under a beta testing.
