Apple releases iOS 12.1 Beta to fix the charging bug

The company is testing a first update patch for iOS 12.

Last week we informed you about a strange bug in the official iOS 12 update, appearing randomly for the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, as well as other iPhone and iPad models. The bug was that the device would not start charging when the screen is turned off, so the user had to disconnect and reconnect the cable.

The company is now releasing iOS 12.1 Beta for users in the public testing channel, and we can confirm that the charging bug has been fixed in this beta. Previously impacted devices can now be charged normally without delays.

Apple is probably releasing the non-beta to everyone in the coming days. Stay tuned.
