The newly launched iPhone 12 mini does not respond to lock screen commands in certain situations, according to the first users to have it.
The iPhone 12 mini was eagerly awaited by many users, not only for the lower price, but also for the size that makes it easy to use with one hand.
However, some of those who bought it and already received it ran into a glitch that they quickly reported on social networks like Reddit and the official Apple forum.
The problem occurs when the smartphone is on the lock screen and the user cannot unlock it or turn on the camera directly in this mode.
It seems that the problem only occurs when using the thumb. With other fingers, unlocking is possible, however, with a smartphone designed to be used with one hand, this task is up to the thumb.
Apparently, this is a matter of grounding or conductivity, as the problem disappears when the phone is charged or used without a case.
After the large number of users complaining in the three days since the launch of the iPhone 12 mini, it doesn’t seem to be just an isolated problem. Apple hasn’t had a reaction yet.
