Apple fixes iPhone Xs not recharging issue #chargegate

iPhone Xs Max

UPDATE: There’s a fix in iOS 12.01 update today and it’s already out. Make sure to update your iOS now

In case you haven’t heard yet, the latest Apple iPhone Xs or Xs Max has a recharging issue in some of the batches. The issue happens when you are plugging a Lightning cable to charge your new iPhone when the screen is off.

Somehow it doesn’t want to charge, until you tap or wake the screen. While it’s a minor issue, this surprises many people when they plug a cable before going to bed only to find that their phone has run out of battery the next morning.

While Apple has not acknowledged this officially, it appears that the latest iOS 12.1 Beta 1 has fixed the charging issue completely, thanks to Rene Richie from iMore who found out about it:

It’s definitely a software bug that can be patched via an update, and not a hardware fault. Or is it? It doesn’t affect all iPhone Xs devices and so far, I’ve never experienced it on my iPhone Xs Max.

Nevertheless, if this happens to your iPhone, know that a fix is on the way and if you are not registered to receive the iOS Beta, you’ll have to wait for a few more weeks for the final patch to be released unfortunately.
