iPhone XS 'Chargegate': Apple reveals fix for handsets that have major charging problem

The Independent - Tech

Apple has revealed its fix for a major charging problem that meant people were failing to power up their iPhones. In recent days, it emerged that the latest iPhones were not charging when they were plugged into their charging ports. Their batteries would not start to fill until the phone was unlocked – in some cases, forcing people to unplug their phone, unlock it, and then plug it in again before it received any power. Now that problem appears to have been fixed by an upcoming software update that has already been pushed out to some users. The update – iOS 12.1, which also brings new emoji – is available to Apple's beta testers now and will presumably be pushed to other iPhone users very soon.

It can be easily downloaded by heading to the Settings app, clicking general, and choosing the software update option. But users who aren't too excited about the new features might be best to wait for at least a couple of hours, as Apple's servers cope with the interest and the sheer number of people downloading the new update. Waiting until later in the day or even until tomorrow will mean the software will download more quickly and easily.] Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, speaks about the Apple iPhone XS and Apple iPhone XS Max Philip W.
