Apple Releases iOS 12.0.1 With Numerous Bug Fixes

Apple has released the first bug fix update to iOS 12 today.  iOS 12.0.1 contains a number of fixes, specifically for the iPhone XS lineup, but also for all iPhones and iPads in general.  The update was released at 10:00 am Pacific today and should be available to all users with eligible devices.  To check for the update, head to Settings>General>Software Update.  The update is just over 100 MB in size so it should be a quick download for everyone.  Still, it is recommended to download via WiFi if you can.

According to the release notes provided by Apple, this update addresses issues with the iPhone XS not immediately charing when connected to a Lightning cable and fixes an issue with these iPhones not rejoining a WiFi network at 5 GHz but rather defaulting to 2.4 GHz.

Other fixes include an issue that impacted some users where Bluetooth would become unavailable.  Also, the “?123” key on iPads has been restored to its original position on the keyboard.

Here are the full release notes for you along with a link to the notes on the Apple site:
