Apple recommends operating its devices in temperatures between 32 degrees and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (or 0 degrees and 35 degrees Celsius). But some Reddit users said they experienced an unresponsive screen within that range.
iOS 11.1.2 was released less than two weeks after some users that their handsets didn't recognize input on the touchscreen when exposed to cool outdoor temperatures. Apple had called the phone's susceptibility to chilly conditions a temporary issue and promised to release a software update to fix it.
The update, which is also for the iPad, addresses another problem: distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with the iPhone X.
