iPhone X problems and how to fix them

Apple iPhone X has been available for three months only. However, we have started to hear some of the issues and annoyances users are experiencing on Apple’s special iPhone model, ranging from issues with Face ID to hidden notifications. Luckily, there’s always something you can do.

If you cannot bear with those annoying iPhone X changes, don’t worry as we have a couple of solutions that help you deal with the biggest iPhone X annoyances. Before we begin, make sure you now have a modern version of iOS 11 installed on your iPhone.

  1. Face ID

With iPhone X, Apple removed the traditional Touch ID fingerprint scanner, instead introducing a brand new security measure known as Face ID. As the name suggests, Face ID unlocks your device by scanning your face. Basically, Face ID is extremely secure and cannot be tricked by a photo.

However, a number of iPhone X owners have reported that Face ID is slower than its predecessor, Touch ID. Luckily, there are some things you can do to speed it up. The first is to make sure you have turned on Raise to Wake feature. Once enabled, Raise to Wake quickly turns on the display every time you pick up your device.

Another thing is to turn off require attention for Face ID. To do this, head to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn off the switch for Require Attention for Face ID.

  1. Notifications

With the addition of Face ID, iPhone X now can hide the content of your notifications on the lock screen until you authenticate using your face. While this is a great privacy feature, some users may find it annoying at times.

Luckily, there is an option to turn off hidden lock screen notifications. To do this, head to Settings > Notifications > Show Previews and make sure you select Always from the list.

  1. iPhone X battery life

Battery life ranks among the biggest concerns when it comes to Apple iPhone. It seems that the problem still persists this year. A number of iPhone X owners have recently noticed faster battery drain. There could be any reason for why your iPhone battery is draining rapidly, ranging from background apps to software issues.

To fix bad battery life on your iPhone X, the first solution is to restart your device. Once your device finishes booting up, turn off Background App Refresh and Raise to Wake. If the problem is still there, back up your data and restore your device.
