Owners of Apple's new flagship iPhone models are reporting that some devices have problems with the way they can be charged.

All the iPhones brought to test by Unbox TherapyWhat the Unbox Therapy has to say? Some report that their iPhone XS stops charging mid-way through its cycle, while others state that the device refuses to begin charging until woken up via a screen tap. Users have had to constantly unplug the cable and plug it again, for it to start charging. The default wall charger that comes with the iPhone out-of-the-box was not the only charger that was unable to charge the iPhone but also any charger could not even charge it up. The Reddit thread indicates the same aggressive skin smoothing issue with the cameras on both the iPhone XS and XS Max. The crowd might hate them and Apple may have slimmed them down to the best of its capability, but the iPhone XS still comes with very thin, but visible, bezels around the screen.

Siri Shortcuts and Screen Time help users manage their time spent on the device. With the release of iOS 12, developers have created incredible experiences for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The smoothing effect on selfies taken with iPhone XS phones is reminiscent of the "beauty modes" from phones like Samsung's line of Galaxy phones. "So there's something to do with the sleep mode or the idle mode that for some reason is blocking the charge current from coming through, or at least the battery from receiving the charge".

Tension as Russian Federation provides missile system to Syria
Still, Israel worries that the advanced missile system could make it more hard for them to target Iranian positions inside Syria. Syrian air defenses mistakenly shot down the Russian Il-20 surveillance plane on September 17 following an Israeli bombing raid.

With growing coverage of this problem, Apple will now be fully aware that this is a problem and one that it needs to investigate and respond to. Also, it might the new iOS 12 that might cause this fatal problem.

Whether there is a problem with hardware or software is unknown. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max feature OLED displays which claims to be battery efficient and more saturated.

If you skipped iPhone X past year, go for iPhone XS. Also, a solution to this major issue requires a lot of time. Lastly, the iPhone XR is priced at Rs 76,900 for the 64GB variant, Rs 81,900 for the 256GB variant and Rs 91,900 for the 512GB variant.

This is in stark contrast to earlier years when demand would be much higher than supplies with Indian shoppers queuing up outside stores to grab the new iPhone.
