You can now download iOS 12.0.1 IPSW links and OTA update for your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. Here are the details.
Apple has seeded the second initial firmware for the version iOS 12.0 which comes with improvements and bug fixes. Following on from the release of iOS 12 final and iOS 12.1 beta into the development community, the company has today officially released iOS 12.0.1 into the public domain.
It has been tipped that iOS 12.1 beta is now into the development community which would extremely give easy access to assume that Apple would simply ignore the process of releasing iOS 12.0.1 in the first place.
While Apple follows up any major release of a new platform with a quick minor point release that is designed to eradicate bugs, solve problems that have become clear from the initial release. That too, stabilize the firmware ahead of that iOS 12.1 release once it comes out of development and testing base.
iOS 12.0.1 does release with some expected fixes, for example, the missing Awards in the Activity app that a lot of iOS 12 users have been encountered. Apple, in fact, has made it public knowledge that it would address that issue with a firmware update and as of iOS 12.0.1, it is actually patched.
Apple has also addressed an issue which was discovered and highlighted as far back as iOS 7 which allowed WebKit to be overloaded and ultimately crashed out and take the entire system with it. Thankfully it is now squashed and is no longer a potential inconvenience to those running iOS 12.0.1.
In addition to that, Apple has also included a slew of fixes and under-the-hood improvements to not only try and make iOS 12.0.1 ore stable and usable but to also lay the foundations for iOS 12.1.
The fixes include fixing for charging issue faced by some iPhone users as well as a bug where iPhone preferred joining 2.4GHz networks over 5GHz, for instance.
