Less than a month after releasing iOS 12, Apple has begun rolling out the first update for the new version of its mobile operating system in order to address a few notable issues that have arisen since launch. Yes, that means today's update officially squashes the "Chargegate" bug.

The bug seemed to impact iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max models, though not all 2018 handsets were affected. Also fixed is an issue that'd cause the iPhone XS to connect to a rejoin a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network over a 5GHz Wi-Fi network.

We did not encounter these issues when reviewing the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but they should now be resolved for users who did, many of whom had taken to Apple and gadget forums to share their experiences. Since a full restore fixed the LTE and Wi-Fi bugs, it seems plausible that iOS 12.0.1 does as well. The latest iOS 12 also fixes some other issues for users. If you've been online at all in the past few weeks, you've probably read about a charging issue affecting some iOS 12 devices. Apple switched the position of the key with the one for emoji/language in iOS 12.

Finally, the update will fix a small issue that prevented some subtitles appearing in videos.

It's worth noting that most of these bugs have been fixed in beta versions of iOS 12.1, though Apple has chose to squash them with a public release instead of waiting for that OS update to drop.

The update is about 157MB in size and if you don't set iOS to Auto Update, you can download it under Settings General Software update.
