Apple is continuously bringing new and exciting features to the iPhone. The iPhone XS and XS Max may feature “the finest smartphone cameras ever,” the “Best Ever Smartphone” display, and the A12 CPU, which is 2 to 3 times quicker than Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chip. However, each gadget has its own set of issues. Since the release of the iPhone XS/iPhone XS Max, people have reported several issues and flaws. Here are some of the most common iPhone XS Max problems reported by consumers, as well as solutions:
- Wi-Fi Issues
Wi-Fi issues have been reported by certain iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max users. If you can’t connect to the Wi-Fi network, consider hard resetting your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max to see if it solves the problem.
If it doesn’t work, try resetting network settings by navigating to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. In addition, Apple has solved an issue in iOS 12.0.1 that caused iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max to connect to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks rather than 5GHz choices. As a result, some owners’ Wi-Fi connections will be somewhat slower. Install iOS 12.0.1 if you have an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max.
- Bluetooth Connection Issues
If you have trouble connecting to Bluetooth devices on your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max, try turning off Bluetooth in Settings > Bluetooth, restarting your iPhone or iPad, and then turning it back on. Apple has released iOS 12.0.1 to correct a fault that caused Bluetooth to become unavailable, so download and install it to see whether it fixes the problem.
- The Battery is Rapidly Depleting
The trouble with battery life concerns is that they are highly subjective because they depend on your usage pattern, making it impossible to determine precisely what is causing a problem. Therefore, checking the battery life before buying used or refurbished phones is crucial. For example, if you want to buy a used iPhone XS, it is crucial to find a credible seller and check the phone’s battery life.
- iPhone XS Max Not Charging
One of the most common complaints from iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max consumers is that their new iPhones do not charge automatically when hooked to a power source. It appears to be an iOS 12 bug, as earlier iPhone and iPad users reported the problem. Apple is aware of the problem, which has already been resolved in iOS 12.0.1. Install iOS 12.0.1 to resolve the issue if you are experiencing it.
- Effect of a Beauty Filter
Another vexing issue is the beauty filter effect that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max apply to selfies, as shown in the comparative photographs below.
Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this problem either. Apple has acknowledged the problem and is trying to resolve it. However, Apple has not offered an update on when it would be available. It also does not appear to be resolved in the iOS 12.1 beta.
- LTE Connectivity Issues
In addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth troubles, some iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max customers appear to be experiencing LTE connectivity issues. You might try hard resetting your iPhone XS or XS Max to see if it fixes the LTE connectivity problem.
Apple is examining the LTE connection and reception issue after receiving complaints from select iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max users. Apple has requested them to install a baseband logger on their smartphone to “monitor my connection to the tower,” as well as answer a few specific questions about the problem.
- The Annoying Green Line On The Screen
However, after some time, an Australian customer saw a bright green line running vertically across his iPhone XS Max screen. Other consumers have reported this problem since then.
Apple will replace the iPhone under warranty for this issue. If you’re seeing this vertical green line of pixels on the side of your iPhone, it’s time to visit the Apple Store.
- Dust Inside The Camera Lens
This is a small problem. Some customers stated that dust was constantly getting inside the camera lens. As a result, the camera performs poorly. To resolve this issue, take your iPhone to an Apple Store and get it cleaned.
So far, these are the most common issues reported by iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max consumers. Should you avoid purchasing the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max due to these issues? We don’t believe it because Apple addresses these concerns as quickly as possible. Therefore, if you want a brand-new iPhone XS but your budget is small, you can buy a used iPhone XS at a lower price.
