Maybe I'm imagine it but the fingerprint scanner seems quicker.
Sometimes I put my finger on and it just gets it straight away, almost instant and then other times it takes a second or 2 but it does seem to get it more first time than before the update.

Same here, 41.25mb on my Pro, coming from the Dec update.

The Dec to Jan update seems to be around 40MB whereas, if you are going.from Nov to Jan, it's around 215MB

The only issue I had with the phone (and hoping now fixed) was the auto-rotate/tap back sensor stopping after an undetermined time until reboot (could stop after hours or perhaps a couple of days)

Going to have to test the network later Vs my work iPhone and see if it has improved from last time. Fingers crossed.

First thing I've noticed, they seemed to have fixed the bug where the phone randomly manually locks after a certain time and asks for my PIN instead due to smart lock. It now properly asks for my FP.

Had that as 2ell... annoying...

Last few days I was experiencing no rotate bug ... Hope that's fixed as well... And the blood reception...

Took roughly 90 minutes to install, but I finally have a signal in my house again!

Good to hear.

I know people think Google took ages to get this update out but then if they rushed it out and it didn't fix the problem it would have been even worse for them... Damned if they do damned if they don't springs to mind.

I think it's also worth bearing in mind that this is their first chip and so some teething problems, albeit they were major, are likely expected...

Does everyone forget antenna-gate with the earlier iPhone whereby if you held it a certain way you lost all signal as your hand blocked the antenna?

Let's see how the update goes.

I was just messing about in settings and noticed that my preferred network type was set to 4G for some reason. I switched it to 5G and I'm now getting 5G reception at home that I didn't actually think I could get.

Just thought I'd share ..

Had this too, thought maybe I had some conflicting setting with Smartlock. Will be great if this has been fixed for me.

That issue is fixed on my wifes phone where it was broken before. I had to turn OFF the "Enable Face Detection" in Auto rotate screen settings page. If you have it on it now only stops the numbers on the camera screen from rotating when you turn the phone, this is only when you double press the power button to access the camera from the phone when locked. It works as intended if the phone is unlocked and you tap the camera shortcut.
I can replicate this on my phone now too whereas before I couldn't.
Glad I never returned the phone now as I believed it was a software issue not hardware. :)
