The iPhone X is waterproof and dust-proof, but apparently, not “winter-proof”
Apple’s new smartphone was released a week ago, and the complaints already started to literally break out.
From the R / IP subdirectory, we have discovered the phone screen blocks whenever the temperature drops sharply.
One of the first lucky possessors of the long-awaited device claims: “I noticed that my iPhone X does not respond as soon as I get out the door. Literally, two seconds after I exit from a building and I spend a little bit time in the freezing weather, my phone crashes. I try to swipe and swipe, but the system does not recognize my finger”.
Redditors confirmed the problem and claim this is actually very common
It seems that the temperature of 0 degrees Celsius is enough to over-touch the phone’s touchscreen. The problem is resolved by giving it a refresh of the iPhone, blocking it and then unlocking it.
Apple has officially recognized the problem and is ready to fix it: “We are aware of the cases where the iPhone X screen does not respond temporarily after suddenly switching to a cold environment. After a few seconds, the screen returns completely. This issue will be resolved by a future software update. ”
