Apple releases iOS 12.0.1 to fix XS charging issue

Apart from that, the update also fixes a couple of other issues, including a Wi-Fi issue where the iPhone XS would apparently connect to 2.4GHz instead of 5GHz band when rejoining.

iOS 12.0.1, released today, promises to address that.

We did not encounter these issues when reviewing the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but they should now be resolved for users who did, many of whom had taken to Apple and gadget forums to share their experiences. One bug prevented the two new iPhone models from charging when the Lightning port was being used for the task. You can also apply the update through iTunes by connecting your iOS device to a computer. That may account for some of the connectivity and speed issues that iPhone XS and XS Max owners have reported.

Apple has finally fixed the freakish charging issues on its new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones.

"The update additionally moves the position of the ".?123" key on the iPad virtual keyboard back to where it is expected to be, fixes a problem with subtitles in certain video applications, and fixes a bug that caused Bluetooth to become unavailable. It will also fix an issue where subtitles might not appear in some video apps. That includes Apple's official release notes, highlighting any changes, and any security-related content which outlines exactly which bugs and vulnerabilities the company has patched with this release.

The update is about 157MB in size and if you don't set iOS to Auto Update, you can download it under Settings General Software update.
