But in reality, this Apple Smartphone has been hit with several bug or software problems that have left the majority of its user entirely infuriated. According to customers’ experience and feedback in most forums, the iPhone X began with the inability to receive incoming calls and later on the problem mutated to include other issues such as Face Detection problems, iPhone X screen issues and abnormal battery drain among others.

Let’s go through these common iPhone X problems and see how we can fix each one of them.

Common iPhone X problems and how to fix them

Fix iPhone X Common problems

1. Unresponsive screen in cold temperatures:

Problem that has faced a majority of iPhone X users is temporary screen unresponsiveness when temperatures suddenly drop. Although this problem doesn’t last for long, most users have expressed their disappointment in various forums such as Reddit. The best thing about it is that Apple is fully aware of the problem and has released a software upgrade that is capable of fixing this issue.

To solve this problem, simply;

  • Try to restart your iPhone X.
  • Or you can simply upgrade latest iOS update.

 

2. Screen burn-in:

One problem that tends to affect most OLED screens is screen burn-in. Since the iPhone X uses an OLED touch-screen, this Smartphone is automatically prone to this issue. In fact, after its release, Apple warned customers that there would be a likeliness of experiencing this problem at a time in life. What happens is that an image will tend to leave a print on the display when the screen is left ON for a long time.

AMOLED VS. IPS LCD

Since this issue is quite annoying especially when you’re watching a movie, you can solve it by;

  • Reducing the brightness on your screen by opening the Control Center then adjusting the brightness.
  • Turning on the Auto-Lock feature by opening Settings>>Display and Brightness>>Auto-Lock.

 

3. Battery drain issue:

We all know that iPhone Smartphones are likely to abnormal battery drain right? Now, although this might be the case, the majority of iPhone enthusiasts did not think they would be facing this problem with the latest iPhone X model especially due to its large battery and the brilliant A11 chip. However, this issue has become a real problem for this flagship Smartphone something which leaves most users with more question than answers. To solve the battery problem, simply;

  • Try a software update to the latest version of iOS.
  • Diagnose the problem by checking those apps that are consuming too much power. You can either delete them or upgrade them.
  • Turn on Lower Power Mode. To do this, simply open Settings>>Battery>>turn ON Lower Power Mode.

4. Face ID issues:

Among the few security options that are used by iPhone X is the Facial recognition system. According to most users, this security feature is sometimes unresponsive or it fails to detect your face. According to other users, this feature can pose a security problem as it’s quite easy to avoid in one way or another. For instance, someone might use your photo to unlock your iPhone X or maybe force you to use this feature to unlock your Smartphone and compromise your Apple Pay account.

If your Face ID feature is unresponsive, simply;

  • Clean the front camera and the sensor.
  • Hold your phone 20 to 30 inches away from your face and actively stare at the camera.
  • Make sure you’re standing in a well-lit room.

 

5. Sound issues:

Another complaint that has been sent by a large number of iPhone X users is sound issues. Some people state that their iPhones can’t deliver any sound while others complain of crackling sounds when the volume is high. In either case, it’s likely that this problem might be software or hardware related. If the problem is a crackling sound on the speakers, simply;

  • Turn off your iPhone X by holding the power button.
  • If this doesn’t help, try performing a hard reset. Here, you’ll need to press the Volume Up, the Volume Down. Finally, press the side button until you see an Apple logo. Allow the phone to reboot itself.
  • If the problem persists, try checking whether there are dirt particles on the speakers. If there are none, try to switch off the Bluetooth and on again.
  • If the above options fail, try to upgrade your iPhone X to the latest iOS upgrade.

 

6. Phone not charging wirelessly:

Another issue that has raised eyebrows is the wireless charger which fails to charge at times. The charger might be charging slowly or maybe a notification message “wireless charging paused” keeps popping up when charging is in progress. In either way, this issue can be resolved by;

  • Making sure the case is plugged.
  • Make sure the charging pad is clean and free of dirt.
  • If your charger is a third party, make sure it’s certified by Apple.
