Apple has released iOS 12.0.1 today, exterminating some nasty, ugly bugs that might have kept you from fully enjoying your brand new Apple iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max.

Apple has officially seeded iOS 12.1 beta 3 to registered developers and testers. Their iPhone XS would attempt to rejoin a previously-connected WiFi network at 2.4 GHz, even if it had been using 5 GHz beforehand.

Fixes an issue where some iPhone XS devices do not immediately charge when connected to a Lightning cable. There were also some sporadic reports of older iPhone and iPad models experiencing the issue, which suggested that it was a software bug in iOS 12. A bug was causing some of these models to hook up with a slower 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network instead of a faster 5GHz signal.

Finally, the update will fix a small issue that prevented some subtitles appearing in videos.

If you want to update your device to iOS 12.0.1 now, you can do so by heading to Settings General Software Update on your device and tapping "Download and Install" at the bottom of the page. Now, with iOS 12.1, Apple is hoping to take the platform to the next level by ironing out issues as well as introducing multiple promised features.

The other changes in iOS 12.0.1 address more minor issues. The download is about 100 MB in size and this update is compatible with any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch that runs iOS 12.
