Apple has just released iOS 12.0.1, just in time to stop what appeared to be an upcoming "charge gate" scandal caused by an issue that made iPhone XS handsets fail to charge when using a Lightning cable. This brand-new iOS update also irons out a WiFi-related problem, a Bluetooth bug, and more.

If you are using the iPhone XS already and the 70 new emojis coming to the iPhone with iOS 12.1 aren't exactly your thing, you will surely enjoy the first minor update to iOS 12 that has just been released by Apple. The reason is that iOS 12.0.1 comes with a few fixes to some annoying problems, and especially for the charging bug, but iPod Touch and iPad users might get a few fixes and tweaks as well.

According to the official notes, these are the problems that iOS 12.0.1 will send straight to the digital afterlife:

  • iPhone XS not charging immediately when connected to a Lightning cable
  • iPhone XS unable to rejoin a WiFi network at 5 GHz, connecting at 2.4 GHz instead
  • subtitles not appearing in some video apps
  • Bluetooth becoming unavailable

In addition to the above, the update also restores the original position of the ".?123" key on the iPad keyboard. The download is about 100 MB in size and this update is compatible with any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch that runs iOS 12.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
