IOS 11.1.1 Released, Bug Fixes + Features & Changes

12 November 2017

Apple has acknowledged there's an issue with some of its latest smartphones freezing in cold weather, but says it's a fixable issue that will be solved via a software update.

Apple does suggest suitable temperature condition for its iOS device for optimum performance.

Some iPhone X owners have been reporting this problem on the iPhone subreddit over the last day or so. However, it turns out that there is a software bug causing the issue and might be fixed by an update. I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger.

According to another user responding in the same thread, locking and unlocking the screen fixes this issue, but it still sounds like a nuisance (I haven't experienced anything of the sorts on my iPhone X).

"We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment", the company told Apple blog The Loop.

Mayer joined former and current CEOs of Equifax in testifying before the committee examining recent data breaches. Nevertheless, Yahoo still does not fully understand "how the act was perpetrated", Mayer admitted.

The issue first popped up on Reddit, where several commenters said they had encountered an issue that makes the iPhone's screen unresponsive.

Others claimed that iOS device screens could become unresponsive outside Apple's recommended temperature range of 0 to 63 degrees Celsius.

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. All we know is some iPhone X units become unresponsive seconds after changing ambient temperature, which is unacceptable given that winter is coming.

This is a relatively small update, so it shouldn't take long for you to download it and rid yourself of these bugs.

The new update, iOS 11.1.1, also fixes a separate bug that caused "Hey Siri" to stop working.
