Apple releases iOS 12.0.1 to fix charging and WiFi bugs

Apple has rolled out iOS 12.0.1 update which is around 157.5 MB in size to fix the iPhone XS charging issue.

Most notably, iOS 12.0.1 patches an issue that was causing problems with iPhone charging via Lightning cable.

There's now no word on whether iOS 12.0.1 fixes the bug that caused mediocre LTE speeds on iPhone XS devices, as it wasn't listed in Apple's release notes.




Apple has finally fixed the freaky charging issues on its new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones. You can also apply the update through iTunes by connecting your iOS device to a computer.

This update is a smaller one, as you might've guessed since it's an x.x.1 update, but there are still some notable bug fixes. "It also restores the original position of the ".?123" key on iPad keyboards - which was moved in iOS 12. Finally, the update fixes an issue where Bluetooth can become unavailable. That includes Apple's official release notes, highlighting any changes, and any security-related content which outlines exactly which bugs and vulnerabilities the company has patched with this release. The update comes after sporadic complaints about how iOS devices running iOS 12 handled charging, with some users finding that their iPhones or iPads wouldn't recharge if the screen was off.

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.
