Apple introduced a new OLED display with its $999 iPhone this year. The company’s iPhone X comes with a beautiful OLED display that, like many other OLED displays, will eventually be affected by burn-in problems. But the iPhone X’s display had an interesting issue.
Under cold temperatures, the iPhone X display would suddenly stop responding to touch interactions. The display wouldn’t completely stop responding to touch interactions, but you’d still have trouble interacting with the device under cold temperatures. I was actually affected by the issue earlier this week, where the suddenly iPhone X stopped registering many of my touch inputs.
Apple is today rolling out a fix for the issue with the release of iOS 11.1.2, along with a fix for an issue that resulted in distorted LIve Photos and videos on the iPhone X:
- Fixes an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop
- Addresses an issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X
If you own an iPhone X, you should be able to get the latest update from the settings app. I will be testing the fix under cold temperature tomorrow, and I’ll make sure to keep you guys updated if I have any further problems with the responsiveness of the display.
