iOS 14.2.1: Apple fixes the annoying iPhone 12 mini touchscreen issue


Apple has released an update to the iOS 14.2.1 operating system with a number of fixes that target the iPhone 12 smartphones, in particular the iPhone 12 mini.

After the release of the iPhone 12 mini, there have been quite a few complaints from users who have confirmed that the smartphone on the lock screen is experiencing various sensitivity issues. The iPhone 12 mini doesn’t respond when the user tries to swipe up, turn on the camera, or turn on the flashlight.

It is not clear what exactly caused the problem; however, apparently, Apple found the cause; since the changelog says that now there should be no problems with the responsiveness of the smartphone on the lock screen.

Apple says iOS 14.2.1 will also fix problems with some MMS messages being unable to connect; and fix sound quality issues in some headsets designed for iPhone.

Those wishing to download and install the update can do so from the Software Update menu in the Settings application.

Apple’s problems don’t end there. As it became known, different versions of the iPhone 12 are not all right with the screens. This was reported by the owners of the new smartphones, and then the company itself acknowledged the problem.

User posts are backed up by photographs. As you can see, at a low brightness level, a greenish or gray shading appears on the display.

At the moment, the company is trying to find a way out of the situation; and determine the cause of the screen color change. Apple representatives have already turned to service centers with a request not to accept smartphones with this malfunction for repair. It is assumed that the problem can be fixed by software updates; which the company will try to do with the next iOS update.

According to DxOMark assessment, the biggest issue with the iPhone 12 display is the yellow color cast. DxOMark noted that the yellow cast continues to appear under each lighting condition.

According to a report by the South Korean media “Asian Economy”, Apple officials recently stated that it is aware of “a few reported cases which are currently under investigation”. We hope that the company resolves the iPhone 12 screen issues as soon as possible.

In addition, some users said that the iPhone 12 mini’s lock screen sensitivity has problems. When they use their thumbs to slide up from the bottom of the locked screen to unlock the device, or when they press the flashlight or camera button on the locked screen, the screen fails to respond in some cases.
