We’ve been using the iPhone X iOS 12.0.1 update for a few days now and the update is currently outperforming the first version of iOS 12.
The iPhone X’s iOS 12 update is substantial and it brings a long list of changes including new features, security patches, and enhancements. And while Apple’s performance enhancements are primarily aimed at older phones like the iPhone 5s, you’ll notice a difference between iOS 11’s performance on the iPhone X and iOS 12’s.
Of course, iOS 12 wasn’t perfect. The update brought its fair share of issues to iPhone X models and we ran into some frustrating problems during our time on iOS 12.0.
Thankfully, Apple’s rolled out a new iOS 12.0.1 bug fix update and the new firmware brings security patches and fixes for lingering issues.
Most iPhone X users should install iOS 12.0.1 today or in the near future, but there are still some concerns. iOS 12.0.1 users are complaining about a variety of problems and we expect the list to grow as more people decide to transition their device from iOS 11 to iOS 12 and iOS 12.0 to iOS 12.0.1.
It’s difficult to predict how iOS 12.0.1 will treat your device so it’s important to get familiar with the operating system and its benefits and problems before you make the move.
This walkthrough will help you do just that. This guide is going to take you through the most important things to know, right now, about the iPhone X iOS 12.0.1 update.
We’ll tell you about the issues currently plaguing the iPhone X’s version of iOS 12.0.1. We’ll provide you with some tips that could help you limit the amount of problems you see. And we’ll tell you about Apple’s plans for the future.
But first, we want to start with some impressions of the iPhone X iOS 12 update. We’ve been looking at several key areas including overall speed, battery life, and app performance and we want to share our thoughts with those who might be on the fence about installing iOS 12.0.1.
iPhone X iOS 12.0.1 Impressions & Performance
We've spent some quality time with the iPhone X's iOS 12.0.1 update and we've come away impressed by its performance.
We haven't seen any major battery drain. Some users are noticing unstable battery life, but the battery life on the iPhone X models in our possession hasn't changed. It's about the same as it was on iOS 12.0 and we're still able to get a full day of use out when using a mixture of Wi-Fi and cellular data.
iOS 12.0.1 still feels a lot faster than iOS 11. Apps open much faster and animations and transitions (like going from a FaceTime Audio call back to the home screen) are much crisper. It's a noticeable difference.
We haven't run into any major problems with our core applications as we've kept them updated with support updates throughout the month. If you're having issues with your apps on iOS 12.0.1, make sure you download the latest versions. They will help.
Bluetooth and GPS are working normally. We've successfully connected our iPhone X to several Bluetooth devices including headphones and speakers. No problems there.
We were running into Wi-Fi issues on iOS 12.0, but those problems have been resolved by iOS 12.0.1. Speeds are normal and we haven't noticed any dropped connections.
As of right now, we recommend iOS 12.0.1. Most iPhone X users should install the update right now for the security patches and bug fixes.
