There’s trouble in iOS paradise.

Apple’s 12.1.2 iOS update, rolled out Tuesday, appears to be causing more problems than the fix was intended to solve.

Multiple users on Twitter are complaining that the iOS update is bricking their phones by cutting off cellular data. First reported by Forbes, there are now multiple user complaints on Twitter about their iPhones’ inability to connect to cellular data after updating to the latest version of iOS.

There are multiple threads on the Apple Support Twitter account with users reaching out for help with the cellular data problem. The account appears to be directing them to restart and update carrier settings.

Mashable has reached out to Apple for confirmation that this is a widespread issue, and to ask whether a fix is coming anytime soon. We’ll update this when and if we hear back.@AppleSupport Is there a issue with iOS 12.1.2 upgrade? I am facing lot of trouble with mobile data and internet connectivity is too slow. I tried different network operator with which I was getting good data connectivity before software upgrade

According to Forbes, Apple released this update in the first place to fix a problem with connectivity in Turkey on the newest iPhone models. But the fix seems to have made everything worse: users across the world, on multiple models of iPhones, apparently can’t reach their cellular networks.

If you want to avoid rendering your phone useless, maybe hold off on downloading the new update for now.
