Apple aware of cold weather affecting iPhone X touch input

So far, the only iPhone X problems that we are aware of are potential OLED burn-ins, which Apple already warned users about, and screen issues when used in cold weather.

But it's certainly nice to hear Apple is on top of things, even though technically we have no timeline for the "upcoming software update", which may or may not coincide with an iOS 11.1.2 maintenance effort.

Considering that's the main way of interacting with the iPhone X, this can get very frustrating.

'I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger. "It's very noticeable. Is anyone else having this problem?"

According to the post on Reddit, the user states that it takes only a couple seconds for the screen to become unresponsive when going from a warmer to a colder climate. Owners experiencing this problem say the unresponsiveness takes place immediately, not just when the phone itself cools down. "This will be addressed in an upcoming software update". "After several seconds the screen will become fully responsive again", Apple said in a statement to ZDNet sister site CNET.

Saudis destroy Houthi missile near Riyadh's Khaled airport
The Saudi-led alliance said the strikes unleashed on Wednesday had hit a "legitimate military target" of rebels in the area. The US, which is one of the kingdom's most important military suppliers, has backed the coalition with logistical support.

Another user from Minneapolis, where it was 7F (-14C), reported similar issues and confirmed that locking and unlocking the phone solved the issue.

The company officially says iOS devices should be operated at ambient temperatures between 0 and 35 degrees Celsius.

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.

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

It's fortunate that this screen issue can be fixed with a software update. Most probably, the fix will come in iOS 11.2, which is now under a beta testing.
