    iOS 12.1.2 Problems: 5 Things You Need to Know

    iOS 12.1.2 Problems: 5 Things You Need to Know is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

    Apple’s new iOS 12.1.2 update is causing problems for some iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners.

    The company’s pulled its iOS 12.1.2 upgrade from beta testing and the software is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models worldwide.

    The company’s iOS 12.1.2 update fixes several lingering bugs, but some users are running into trouble with the latest version of iOS 12.

    iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users are running into installation issues, abnormal battery drain, connectivity issues, and problems with Face ID and Touch ID. These are all common problems and most of them can be fixed in minutes.

    We’re also hearing about an assortment of bugs and glitches including issues with the lock screen, Control Center bugs, and Notification bugs.

    In this guide to iOS 12, iOS 12.0.1, iOS 12.1, iOS 12.1.1, and iOS 12.1.2 problems we’ll take you through the most glaring issues. This is a partial list and we expect the list of problems to grow as more people download iOS 12.1.2.

    Our walkthrough will also show you where to find potential fixes for the most common iOS 12.1.2 problems and direct you to a few resources that could come in handy if and when you run into trouble.

    We’ll also touch on the iOS 12.1.1/iOS 12.1 downgrade and a few things you can expect from Apple and the future of iOS 12.

    iOS 12.1.2 Problems

    While some of the problems iOS 12.1.2 users are seeing are brand new, others have carried over from the iOS 11 update and the previous versions of iOS 12.

    The iOS 12.1.2 download is getting stuck on some iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models. If this happens, you’ll want to hard reset your device. This usually resolves the problem and gets the download going again.

    We’re also seeing reports about Wi-Fi and Bluetooth issues, GPS problems, 3D Touch problems, landscape problems, issues with Siri, user interface lag, lockups, freezes, app crashes, AirPlay problems, an issue where the Messages app is sending messages to unintended recipients. and problems updating apps on the App Store.

    Some iOS 12 users are also reporting washed out colors across the user interface. We haven’t noticed this problem on any of our devices, but looks like it’s fairly widespread. Many of the complaints come from iPhone X users.

    Developers are currently hard at work updating their apps with support for iOS 12, but many third-party apps are bugged or broken. iOS 12 users on the MacRumors forums have put together a long list of apps that are running poorly on iOS 12.

    We’re also seeing reports about bugs and glitches. The list includes a lock screen orientation glitch in Control Center, a Folder in Dock bug, a lock screen time issue, and glitchy widgets.

    The official Apple discussion forums, Reddit, and social media sites like Twitter are starting to fill up with complaints about iOS 12.1.2 and we expect the list to grow as we push further away from the release date.

    If you haven’t downloaded iOS 12.1.2 yet we recommend preparing your device for the download. A little prep can go a long way toward preventing problems.

    To assist you we’ve put together a step-by-step pre-installation process and our checklist will take you through the most important things you need to do before you install iOS 12.1.2.

    Where to Find iOS 12.1.2 Reviews

    If you’re running iOS 12.1.2 or you’re thinking about upgrading it’s important to dig into feedback from iOS 12.1.2 users. This feedback will alert you to potential problems and potential benefits as well.

    We’ve released our list of reasons to and not to install the iOS 12.1.2 update right now and it will help get you started. If you’re on the fence about making the move to iOS 12.1.2 due to its problems, this is a good starting point.

    We also recommend keeping an eye on YouTube, Apple’s discussion forums, social media sites like Twitter/Facebook, and the MacRumors forums for additional feedback.

    We’re in the process of publishing our mini iOS 12.1.2 reviews for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, and iPhone SE.

    How to Fix iOS 12.1.2 Problems

    Most iOS 12.1.2 problems can be fixed from the comfort of a computer chair or couch. Others will require a fix from Apple.

    If you’re running into trouble on iOS 12.1.2, there’s no need to panic. We’ve put together a list of fixes for the most common iOS 12 problems. This is a great place to start.

    We’ve also released a list of tips that could help you improve your device’s performance and also one that outlines ways to fix iOS 12 battery life problems.

    If you’re unable to find a fix for your problem in our guides, you should go to Apple’s discussion forums for help. If Apple’s forums aren’t helpful, you can get in contact with Apple Support via Twitter or via the company’s website.

    If Apple’s online services fail you, you might want to schedule an appointment to see a Genius at your local Apple Store. If you have one.

    They should be able to diagnose your issue within minutes and provide you with a fix or a replacement depending on your warranty and problem.

    You Can Downgrade to iOS 12.1 or iOS 12.1.1

    If you run into trouble on iOS 12.1.2 you can try downgrading to a previous version of iOS 12.

    Apple’s signing off on 12.1 and iOS 12.1.1 which means you can take advantage of a loophole and drop your device back down to either one in an effort to improve performance.

    Unfortunately, Apple’s closed off the downgrade paths to iOS 12.0.1, iOS 12.0 and iOS 11. There’s currently no way back to any of those updates.

    For more about how the downgrade process works, take a look at our detailed walkthrough.

    What’s Next

    If you’re struggling on iOS 12.1, you might be on your own for a few weeks.

    iOS 12.1.2 was the last known update in Apple’s pipeline and with the holidays coming up, we aren’t expecting an iOS 12.1.3 or iOS 12.2 release in December.

    That said, we expect the company to confirm the next version of iOS 12 in the near future though we imagine it will do so with a beta release for developers and those in the Beta Software Program.
