In a tweet, Apple said people could "fix it by installing the latest software update". Low or high temperatures may alter the behavior of iOS device, and using them in "very cold conditions" can temporarily shorten the battery life or cause the device to turn off.
Apple says it's working on a software fix for a bug that makes some iPhone X screens unresponsive in cooler weather.
The problem is not common, and only a few users have reported the issue. One of the responses surmised the issue lies in software, adding that locking and unlocking the screen seems to do the trick when it happens.
Apple has since confirmed the reports and the speculation that a software bug is responsible. "I try swiping on websites and it doesn't register my finger", wrote the original poster.
Of course, you might think it entirely nuts that Apple needs to ship a full iOS update to update such a simple issue, particularly when it's only just started shipping an upgrade that restores a working "i" key when typing out a message.

Several post-18 colleges are located on the campus, including the International Institute of Trade and Development. The interior ministry said the students were lightly injured; BFM reported that two were in serious condition.
Many other users responded to the post where they conveyed similar problems.
According to Apple, its iOS devices perform best between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F) temperatures, but some users who are experiencing this issue have seen the screen problems within these temperature parameters. "After several seconds the screen will become fully responsive again", Apple said in a statement to ZDNet sister site CNET.
As for this update, there is a temporary workaround for the autocorrect issue, but it isn't ideal for long-term use.
