Besides the bug fix, iOS 11.2 includes the aforementioned Apple Pay for iMessage for US users, new wallpaper options for iPhone X users, and a handful of other minor improvements.

And for the iPhone X, Apple is adding three new live wallpapers and an indicator for the Control Center on the lock screen to help new users who could find it hard to discover the new Control Center gesture on the iPhone X. The indicator doesn't go away once you open the Control Center for the first time, so it might be a bit distracting for existing iPhone X users. If you're running an iOS version earlier than 11.2, Apple recommends turning off all notifications to avoid this bug. And if one has, then one needs to wait until Apple offers some solution for the bug, until that time there are two options out of which a user can choose one that may be the least tiring.

Apple doesn't disable those features so that you can connect your Apple Watch or Apple Pencil, enable Personal Hotspot from another device and use Wi-Fi for more accurate location features. The application is now only available in the U.S., which according to the reports is not live yet. Here's more on how to update to iOS 11.2. Head over to the Settings app, then hit General, then Software Update.

Apple has moved quickly to fix the phone-breaking bug, breaking usual precedent to release iOS 11.2 on Saturday (three days earlier than its regular Tuesday release schedule).

Faster wireless charging. In previous versions of iOS 11, wireless charging for the iPhone 8 and X was limited to a slow 5W, while iOS 11.2 enables compatible chargers to increase that power to 7.5W. There's also improvements in the update for wireless charging. The more you upgrade it, the more hard is to get it cracked. The update also brings some system improvements to your device. The new update also improved the dedicated TV app's functionality and overall User Interface.
