Apple rushes out iOS 11.2 to fix December 2 date bug

Apple rushes out iOS 11.2 to fix December 2 date bug

Most iOS updates arrive on Tuesdays, but the time-related crashes obviously led Apple to pull the trigger early. Apple is releasing iOS 11.2 today, which is supposed to fix the issue and includes a few of new features.

Apple has now released the 11.2 which is the second major update available for iPhone, iPad and the iPod Touch.

Here's how you can downgrade iOS 11.2 to earlier firmware, such as iOS 11.1, iOS 11.1.1, iOS 11.0.3, iOS 11.0.2, iOS 11.0.1.

Seven upgrades have been released in between the roughly two months from the releases of the iOS 11 on September 20 to November 17, when iOS 11.1.2 was released.

iOS 11.2 also adds support for Apple Cash Pay.


. Many users faced this problem at the same time. That's not the case with iOS 11.2.

According to Singapore's The Straits Times, iPhone users had experienced automatic repeated restarts after the 11.1.2 software update on Saturday (Dec 2). But, if you're an iPhone X owner that has updated to iOS 11.2, feel free comment down below with your experience. Both of those have notable downsides, however, so it was expected that Apple would push out new software to address it. It brings Apple's peer-to-peer payment service, Apple Pay Cash to your device. Since you may not be sure which apps those are, you may want to play it safe by turning off any notifications until you've had a chance to update - at least if you don't have a lot of apps on your phone. To use this, users would have to sign in to their iCloud account on any device that will be used to send or receive money.

Apple Pay Cash feature works with the iMessage app or via Siri.

Apart from this, the update fixes all the bugs and other minor issues on the phone.

With the upcoming update, the Control Center on all devices will get two new informational pop-ups clarifying the settings for the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggles. And I know what you're thinking: it isn't known if the default Reminders app on iOS devices was also to blame. It offers live integration to sports channels so you can easily watch out your favourite games through this app.

You get three new Live wallpapers for iPhone X, improved image stabilization on the video camera, and podcasts will not automatically advance to the next episode of the same show.
