Apple releases iOS 11.2 to fix Springboard bug on iPhone

Apart from these two major updates, iOS 11.2 update also includes new live wallpapers. Apple usually releases iOS update on Tuesday but to solve this issue it has released iOS 11.2 on Saturday itself. Apple took the unusual step of releasing its iOS update on the weekend to remedy that issue, but seems to have rushed it out with some parts not operational.

Unfortunately, this applies to just the latest crop of iPhone devices - iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus that have wireless charging features integrated. This should be a welcome improvement as many have criticised the new iPhones' slow wireless charging support. The standard iPhone power adapter maxes out at 5W. Those affected by the bug would see their iPhone crash repeatedly when the time turned 12:15am on 2 December 2017 on the device. It was only a few weeks ago that I was pulling Apple up for delaying the launch of the HomePod smart speaker, and suggesting that the iMac Pro might also end up being delayed.

You can update your iPhone in Settings General Software Update.

However, the owners of iPhone X after the update a new problem appeared.

The bug in the calculator app made the user wait for long animations to play out. Apple's hoping that the convenience factor will help its payment system overtake Venmo: anyone who has already set up Apple Pay for contactless payments will have virtually nothing to do in order to send a friend money through Apple Pay Cash.

Among the other likeable aspect with the new update include some tweaks to the camera which has improved the video stabilization.

For iPhone X the size of the iOS 11.2 update is 430.7 MB. In version 11.2, Apple jumps into the online payment service industry, with the predictably named "Apple Pay Cash".
