After the rapid release of iOS 12.1.2 just a few days after the developers only briefly tested the software update in the beta test, user reports of an error occurred that disrupted cellular data. While the problem is by no means widespread – no one from the team 9to5 has witnessed it – it's serious enough to have a bunch of Twitter complaints and an article by Forbes in which the error occurred is described, earn. Interestingly, the release notes for iOS 12.1.2 are paper thin, with only two fixes mentioned – one related to eSIM functionality and the other to mobile connectivity issues. Specifically, the problems seemed to affect only Turkey, although the problems are now more widespread.
In the release notes for iOS 1
- Fixed a problem that could affect the mobile phone connection in Turkey for iPhone XR and iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max
However, the complaints of Twitter are far and wide because users around the world are seeing problems.

Interestingly, a user reported that only one data link to Facebook was successful, Safari and other apps did not register connectivity.
@ AppleSupport since upgrading to iOS 12.1.2. Only app that can access mobile data is Facebook. No connectivity or website is specified Today the server is not found. I feel like I updated the update, why I chose iOS.

The story seems to be something, but the rhyme or reason why these data errors occur remains a mystery. But if you have problems, do not worry! We have a solution. To resolve iOS 12.1.2 mobile connection issues:
The first possible solution is to disable Wi-Fi Calling from the Cellular menu in the Settings app.
If Not, go to Cellular Data Options on the same screen and change Enable LTE from Voice & Data to Data Only.
A video tutorial from zollotech takes you through the simple process.
Ultimately, however, it is a band aid to solve problems in the connection of mobile data. Other Twitter users complain about numerous Wi-Fi issues resulting from a failed automatic network connection or a full connection to the Internet.
Apple remains tense as usual, but iOS 12.1.3 is already beta testing developers.
