IPhone X doesn't like the cold but Apple's working on it

(Web Desk) - The latest flagship phone by Apple, iPhone X, has been found to have a major glitch in its touch screen which can turn unresponsive when subjected to cold weather.

Apple said Friday it's working on a software update to fix user complaints that the new iPhone X screen becomes unresponsive when temperatures drop.

Apple is working on a software fix for a mystery bug that causes the iPhone X's display to become unresponsive in cold weather.

'It literally takes 2 seconds from going inside to the cold outdoors and my screen stops being very responsive. And speaking of iOS 11.2, AppleInsider reports that users have begun having problems with Global Positioning System accuracy on the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, but a fix appears imminent in iOS 11.2. "I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger", wrote the original poster.

On Reddit, one person claimed his gadget suffered issues at a temperate of about 7C. Can we get Apple to investigate?

On its website, Apple advises customers that its products are optimized to work best under "acceptable" temperatures, which it says is a range between 0 and 35 degrees Celsius.

In that case, the fix involved a hardware problem that was solved by bringing the device into an Apple store, and paying a fee of nearly $200 in some cases.

"Battery life will return to normal when you bring the device back to higher ambient temperatures", Apple said on the support page. Most probably, the company will fix the issue in its iOS 11.2 update which rests in the beta phase at the moment.

This is it for now, folks.
