IPhone XS charging fix now available in new iOS 12.0.1 update

Whilst Android users are generally blown away when they receive a firmware update, iOS device owners just accept it as the norm.

In nearly every reported instance, the phone would begin to charge normally once it had been unlocked and interacted with, indicating that the issue lay in the device's inactivity, and not the display's sleep status.

Apple issued a critical update to iOS 12 today that fixes several bugs plaguing iPhone XS and XS Max devices since their initial release. Their iPhone XS would attempt to rejoin a previously-connected WiFi network at 2.4 GHz, even if it had been using 5 GHz beforehand.

The position of the.?123 key has also been switched back in this update on the iPad. iOS 12 swapped the position of the.?123 key and the emoji/language key, which annoyed some users and this update swaps it back.


iOS 12.0.1 fixes a major charging issue experienced by owners of the company's latest devices, where the Lightning charging cable was not recognised when the display was off. "For example, the iPad keyboard will now show the ".?123" key in its original place; some apps which were having problems showing subtitles should also now be fixed.

Highlight of the latest software update is the fix for charging.

If you want to update your device to iOS 12.0.1 now, you can do so by heading to Settings General Software Update on your device and tapping "Download and Install" at the bottom of the page.
