iOS 11.1.2 Update

Apple has released iOS 11.1.2 for iPhone and iPad users. The small point release software update appears to primarily focus on solving two particular issues with iPhone X, including a problem where the iPhone X screen becomes unresponsive in cold weather, and with distorted video capture on iPhone X.

Despite the software update release notes primarily mentioning iPhone X, iOS 11.1.2 is available for other devices as well. You can find IPSW download links below, along with the release notes of the update.

Update to iOS 11.1.2

    I am amazed at how half-baked the update screen looks in your picture. Does Apple pay attention to details anymore? Huge weird gap on the top, overlapping text that doesn’t fit into the allocated space. A kindergartener would be better at laying that out.

    My screen didn’t look like that. Mine was fine.

  3. Nicholas Manno says:

    Mine had a slight overlay of the ‘61.5 MB’ into the text.

    Has Apple ever had an update so messed up as 11-everything? I guess the battery life on my 6s is permanently ruined. No problem as long as I don’t use it or travel.
