The bug seemed to impact iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max models, though not all 2018 handsets were affected. Apple also fixed a bug that caused iPhone XS devices to rejoin the slower 2.4GHz connection of a WiFi network rather than the faster 5GHz connection, fixed an issue with subtitles in video apps, and restored the '.?123' key to its original position on the iPad keyboard. Stats from Mixpanel suggest that iOS 12 is already running on more devices globally than iOS 11, which just goes to show exactly how popular the platform has proven to be with consumers. If you've encountered charging or connectivity issues, you'll want to update your iPhone to iOS 12.0.1 now.

The update is only around 100MB and is now available to download on all compatible devices. Apple switched the position of the key with the one for emoji/language in iOS 12. Instead, they'd only do so if the screen was active when the charging was initiated.
