7 Common Issues in iPhone XS & XS Max

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is the “the best smartphone cameras ever”, “Best Smartphone” display and the A12 chip that’s 2 to 3 times faster than Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chip, but like most iPhone devices, it also comes with its own set of issues.

Here are some of the most common iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max issues that users are reporting and what you can do to fix them.



Charging Issue:

Many people have reported that their iPhone XS is not charging when they plug it into the lightning cable. With some iPhones, the charging process failed to start when the phone was in sleep mode and for others, the charging only started when the user Tap on the screen.

Apple has recognized that there is an issue of charging with their latest smartphones, which will hopefully be fixed in a quick.

Network Signal Reception is Weak

Some other iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max users have complained that their smartphone is having worst signal reception than their previous iPhones. Particularly, the people who are on Verizon network are experiencing this issue.

It could be either because of the fact that Apple has shifted from Qualcomm to Intel modems or maybe it is something related to the design of the antenna in the devices.

There isn’t really any possible fix for this issue; maybe a software update will fix this problem for the Verizon network. Though, all other network people are having no issues.

Freezing issue:

Some of the owners of the iPhone XS & XS Max have also reported that their phones are hanging; it simply freezes while doing anything on the smartphone.

This too can be fixed with a software update, so you might have to wait for the update if your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max is hanging.

Aggressive Camera Smoothening:

The cameras on the new iPhones are top of the line, but not everyone is happy about it.

It looks that iPhone XS is much more aggressive than the previous iPhones for smoothening the skins of subjects in selfies. The new iPhone smooths the skin of the subjects by default which means Apple wants it to be more aggressive.

Maybe Apple will acknowledge this issue and will push an update that will give users the option to turn off aggressive smoothing.

Bluetooth Connectivity Problems

If you’re having problems connecting to Bluetooth devices on your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max, then try turning off Bluetooth by going to Settings > Bluetooth, restarting your iPhone or iPad, and turning on Bluetooth again to see if it helps.
