Numerous users have reported issues charging the latest iPhone Xs and Xs Max through the Lightning port, but that’s not all
In the last few days, there have been numerous reports about a series of problems with the Apple iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. Apparently, some devices are not charging via the Lightning port when the phones are plugged into the charges while asleep. Even though the issue is not present in all smartphones, it appears that there is a large number of devices that face this problem with charging. Some work properly, some charge only when they’re awake, while others don’t even charge without a reset – quite unpleasant given the fact that the device is pricey and marketed as being “revolutionary.”
It seems that the issue is related to the Lightning port detection algorithm not working properly when the device is asleep, which can most probably be solved through a software update. However, there’s still a chance that the issue comes from a hardware bug that may require a fix or even replacement. We’re still waiting for Apple’s response for this.
In addition to this charging issue, users are also reporting really poor Wi-Fi and Cellular signals, resulting in poor call quality and lower data speeds. We live in the age of speed and technology, so all of these are issues that should not even exist.
There seem to be two potential issues at play. Some users have swapped SIMs between iPhone 8 and iPhone X, and the Xs and Xs Max and discovered that LTE speeds are lower on the latest models. Moreover, it seems that the new devices have a desire to connect to 2.4GHz wireless networks, even when 5GHz are available.
Hopefully, Apple will address these quite important problems as soon as possible.
