Apple aware of cold weather affecting iPhone X touch input

Settings on Apples new iPhones

But it's certainly nice to hear Apple is on top of things, even though technically we have no timeline for the "upcoming software update", which may or may not coincide with an iOS 11.1.2 maintenance effort.

Apple does suggest suitable temperature condition for its iOS device for optimum performance. It also appears that the problem isn't consistent, with some having the issue, while others aren't. However, it turns out that there is a software bug causing the issue and might be fixed by an update.

Apple has addressed a glitch that caused some iPhones to unexpectedly start auto-correcting the letter "i" to a capital "A" and a question mark.

The fix is coming in response to complaints that the screen doesn't detect touches when the device is in cold weather. "I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger", wrote Reddit user Darus214, adding later that the outside temperature was 50 degrees Fahrenheit when his handset became unresponsive. All we know is some iPhone X units become unresponsive seconds after changing ambient temperature, which is unacceptable given that winter is coming.

Other iPhone X owners chimed in to say that they, too, have experienced this problem with their handset.

Apple has issued a statement to Loop In Sight that says it has already heard the reports of the issue, but that it's often the case that the screen unresponsiveness stops on its own after a few moments.

As for this update, there is a temporary workaround for the autocorrect issue, but it isn't ideal for long-term use. Most probably, the company will fix the issue in its iOS 11.2 update which rests in the beta phase at the moment.
