IPhone X screens experiencing problems in cold weather; Apple working on fix

Though it is still unclear that what is the real reason behind the issue, the fact that Apple has come forward immediately and accepted it is being seen as a positive action from the company. "It's very noticeable. Is anyone else having this problem?" asked darus214.

Apple has released a new iOS 11 update to fix a unusual autocorrect bug that some users are getting when typing a lowercase "i". "After several seconds the screen will become fully responsive again", Apple said in a statement. Others have floated the idea that most iOS device screens are unresponsive outside Apple's recommended temperature range of between 32 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit, and that it's most pronounced on a device with a physical home button.

'Battery life will return to normal when you bring the device back to higher ambient temperatures'. Users on reddit have reported issues with the iPhone X becoming unresponsive when transitioning from a warm environment to a cold environment (e.g, going outside in November). Go into Settings General Software Update on your iPhone or iPad to begin the update process.
