IPhone X bug causes touch problems in cold weather

Apple plans software update to fix iPhone X screen responsiveness in cold weather

When Apple fixes this issue, it may actually become the best iPhone for cold weather usage.

"We are aware of instances where the iPhone X screen will become temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid change to a cold environment". One user reported Face ID fails outside as well. Luckily, there seems to be a workaround, where locking and immediately unlocking the handset seems to restore functionality of the screen.

The malfunction, which impacted some users who updated their iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices to iOS 11.1, autocorrected "i" to an odd symbol that appeared as "A [?]".

To install the new update, open your iPhone or iPad's settings menu, tap General, and choose "Software Update".

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

Pixel 2 XL Screen Flashes When Locking or Unlocking, Some Users Report
A lot of users have tried disabling adaptive brightness on the Pixel 2 XL , but the issue seems to persists. Google is yet to acknowledge the issue but we can expect some sort of software patch to fix the issue.

Apple issued iOS 11.1.1 this week, promising issues including the weird "i" autocorrect, which changed the letter to an A and a question mark symbol. The issue came to light when a Reddit user started a thread complaining about his shiny new phone becoming "very unresponsive" whenever he steps outside to mingle with Jack Frost. I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger. Low- or high-temperature conditions might cause the device to change its behaviour to regulate its temperature.

For now, the phone should return to normal within seconds.

IOS 11.1.1 has just been released, and it comes with a small but important update - a fix for the odd autocorrect bug in iOS 11.1 that has been automatically changing the letter "I" to "A [?]" for some users.

An online discussion forum on Apple's website includes comments from people affected by the bug.
