After a promising begin, iOS 12.1.2 goes from unhealthy to worse for iPhone homeowners and
As an increasing number of iPhone homeowners blindly improve to iOS 12.1.2 stories at the moment are flooding in from around the globe that it cuts off cell information companies. As such, Apple’s claims that it “Addresses an issue that could affect cellular connectivity in Turkey for iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max” appear ironic given the issue has now expanded to all fashions of iPhone throughout all continents.
Tracking complaints on Twitter alone, iPhone homeowners now affected by cell information loss after upgrading to iOS 12.1.2 will be present in North America, South America, Europe and Asia. But the United States seems to be hit notably laborious:
“Thanks @Apple @AppleSupport for the Christmas present…since updating my iPhone to iOS 12.1.2 I can’t access cellular data. I reset my device and now I can’t activate it anymore. No Service. You better fix this in an update soon!” – New York
“@AppleSupport My iPhone X is having WiFi connection issues since I updated to iOS 12.1.2 !!!” – Maryland
“My phone won’t connect to cellular network at all after update to 12.1.2” – North Carolina
“@AppleSupport when is the next IOS Update coming? My son and wife’s phones aren’t able to make or receive phone calls after the 12.1.2 download.” – Mississippi
“Shout out to @Apple and @AppleSupport. I installed 12.1.2 and it bricked my cellular. Thanks for rushing out your updates again.” – Connecticut
“Anyone else lose the ability to use your phone as an actual phone when you upgraded to #iOS 12.1.2 on your #iPhone? What the heck @Apple? I can’t even call @AppleSupport and can’t make a reservation at a #AppleStore until next week!” – Texas
“@AppleSupport Hi, Is there any fix available for the network connectivity issue I am experiencing on my iPhone since updating to the latest iOS 12.1.2?” – New England
“@AppleSupport I updated to ios 12.1.2 and now I can’t call or text/receive calls or texts, what do I do?????!!!?!?!?!????!?????” – Wisconsin
“Intermittent “no service” errors on my #iPhone since iOS 12 update. was hoping 12.1.1 or 12.1.2 would fix it. Nope! Got a new SIM from provider, but problem persists. There one minute, gone the next. (P.S. I am not in Turkey) @apple @AppleSupport @USCellular” – Nebraska
And that is simply the tip of the iceberg. India can be badly hit and the complaints are flying in. For instance: 1, 2, three, four, 5, 6, 7, eight, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33… you get the image.
So what’s Apple doing? There has been no official remark and the corporate’s official Twitter assist is telling customers to restart their telephones and replace service settings however, for what I can see, it’s not serving to.
The solely excellent news on the horizon is Apple has already began beta testing iOS 12.1.three. The launch date is unknown and it once more seems to be motivated by authorized issues. Still, it might be astonishing if Apple doesn’t acknowledge and attempt to repair these cell information issues on the similar time.
But for now, I’d strongly counsel you avoid iOS 12.1.2. The scale of any iOS downside is at all times not possible to know given the sheer variety of iPhones in circulation, however since iOS 12.1.2 exists primarily as a loophole to get Apple out of a Chinese gross sales embargo I can’t see any purpose why you’d danger your cell information connection for it?
