Some iPhone X screens are temporarily unresponsive in the cold

Settings on Apples new iPhones

Several seconds are needed for the OLED to be working again.

I've noticed that my iPhone X screen becomes very unresponsive as soon as I step outside.

Many other users responded to the post where they conveyed similar problems.

To install the new update, open your iPhone or iPad's settings menu, tap General, and choose "Software Update". Apple has acknowledged the issue and said that it was working on a fix. iPhone X users who are living in cold regions of the world have reported that the screen on their iPhone X (Amazon, $1230.00) stops working as soon as they step outside of their home and into the cold weather.

In a tweet, Apple said people could "fix it by installing the latest software update".

Apple also has some guidance on using iOS devices in low or high conditions and recommends keeping it at an ambient temperature of between 0C and 35C. The problem, however, is not very common, and very few users have so far have identical issues which may mean that iPhone X units in very cold condition may be facing this issue.

Apple has since confirmed the reports and the speculation that a software bug is responsible. I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger.

Nothing in Apple's support documentation suggests there are any other changes of note; for example, the security documentation says that the security content of iOS 11.1.1 is the same as that of iOS 11.1. iOS 11.1 fixed the serious KRACK Wi-FI vulnerability for some devices.

This time, the company is promising the solution to the problem lies in the software and will be sent to customers seamlessly via a software update.

After literally just fixing a very specific (and annoying) autocorrect bug by rolling out a small update for iOS 11.1, Apple seems to have already started work on a possible 11.1.2 platform revision taking care of another particularly irritating and unusual system malfunction.
