In this post, we’ll show you common iPhone XS problems and provide you some tips and workarounds that come in handy when you start noticing issues on your new iPhone.
iPhone XS Problems
Some iPhone XS users are still dealing with activation problems after updating to iOS 12.1.1. Activation issues are very common so there’s no need to panic if you are encountering the activation problem on your new phone.
If you could not activate your iPhone, you should check Apple’s System Status page. If it’s grey, you need to wait until it’s green and then try it again. In case it’s green, but it’s still not working, ensure you have already inserted a SIM card in your iPhone. If you see a “No Sim” or “Invalid SIM” error, you should head here for help.
A few iPhone XS users are also complaining about problems with setting up Face ID, iCloud, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Some iPhone XS users are even dealing with shipping problems. If you’re encountering a shipping issue you should get in contact with Apple service or your company’s customer service for further assistance.
Where to Find Good Feedback
If you notice problems on your iPhone XS, you should dig into feedback from those who are using this phone. There are a few places to find that. You can keep an eye on YouTube, Apple’s discussion forums, or other social media like Twitter/Facebook. Above are great places to find out more about iPhone XS software problems.
How to Fix iPhone XS Problems
If you deal with a problem on your iPhone XS, you no need to panic. There’s still a good chance you can fix the issue(s) in a matter of minutes.
If you could not find out a fix for your issue in those walkthroughs, you can check Apple’s discussion forums for better potential fixes.
If the frontline customer service of Apple can’t help you fix the problem, you should take your phone into the nearest local Apple Store or your local carrier to check if they can diagnose your issue. If there is an Apple Store in your area, you can schedule a Genius Bar appointment and let them run diagnostics on your iPhone XS.
Your iPhone XS is still in the warranty period, so they could offer you a replacement if there’s a serious defect.
Downgrade Your iPhone XS To Lower iOS Version
There’s no way to downgrade an iPhone XS to iOS 11 version and you will be stuck with iOS 12 version. However, you can downgrade to iOS 12.1 if the iOS 12.1.1 update is now running on your iPhone. You can use iTunes to help you do that. Download the iOS 12.1 firmware for your iPhone first > open iTunes, click on Shift + Update to downgrade your phone without losing data.
