Apple releases iOS 12.0.1 to fix charging and WiFi bugs

Apple has officially seeded iOS 12.1 beta 3 to registered developers and testers.

Apple has rolled out iOS 12.0.1 update which is around 157.5 MB in size to fix the iPhone XS charging issue.

If you bought a new iPhone this spring, we have some good news to share: Apple pushed out an update to all users today that fixes two of the more frustrating issues that have plagued iPhone XS and XS Max owners. A bug was causing some of these models to hook up with a slower 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network instead of a faster 5GHz signal. The update comes after sporadic complaints about how iOS devices running iOS 12 handled charging, with some users finding that their iPhones or iPads wouldn't recharge if the screen was off. The release follows hot on the heels of the second pre-release seed of iOS 12.1 - the first major update to iOS 12 - and is available with immediate effect to all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch hardware.

Most notably, iOS 12.0.1 patches an issue that was causing problems with iPhone charging via Lightning cable.
