[Update: No] Has iOS 11.2.1 fixed iPhone X incoming call display delay issue?
Update (January 12): Nope. Several users say the issue is there in iOS 11.2.2 as well. Read our latest coverage on the matter here.
Original story follows:
Users of Apple iPhone X have been facing an extremely annoying issue for quite some time now. It’s related to incoming calls, with complainants reporting that when they receive a call, their phone starts ringing immediately, but the display wakes up after a significant delay (up to 20 seconds in some cases).
A significant number of iPhone X users have reported the issue so far on the official Apple forums. However, the problem doesn’t seem to be limited to iPhone X. From what we could trace, reports related to the problem started popping up in October, after the release of iOS 11.
It was last week when an expert at the Apple forums confirmed that it’s indeed an issue, and will be fixed in the next update.
This comment was posted on December 11, and after that Apple has released the iOS 11.2.1 update. So far, only a single user at one of the forum threads has confirmed that iOS 11.2.1 has seemingly fixed the problem. So it’s a bit early to say anything.
