The iPhone X was one of the most anticipated devices of 2017, generating a great deal of conjecture and expectation. As a result, Apple attempted to incorporate several fantastic technologies into the iPhone, such as Face ID, but the device was not fully functional when people first began using it. Various iPhone X issues have begun to manifest themselves at this location over time. In this article, we’ve spoken about some of the problems with the iPhone X and how to fix them.
Top 10 iPhone X Issues and Solutions
iPhone X Update Problem
The iOS 11.2.1 version is available for download and installation immediately after your device has been taken out of the package by Apple. If you are experiencing problems such as your device being stuck or taking longer to upgrade, you will need to hard reset your phone. To achieve this, press and hold the Volume Up and Down buttons until the Apple Logo appears, then press and hold the Side Button until the Apple Logo appears. Once that is completed, try downloading again. Besides that, you should also double-check your Internet connection’s performance.
The stunning OLED screen was a major innovation to the Apple iPhone X, which eliminated the need for the famous home button. In a statement made not long after the iPhone X’s release, Apple acknowledged the existence of flaws such as “Image Persistence” in the OLED display. When using static images on your Apple device, “image persistence” or “burn-in” may occur on your device (for example App icons). Technically speaking, the static images may become permanently embedded in the display. When you keep your device’s screen display turned on for an extended period, this may occur.
Keep the auto-lock time on your iPhone X as low as possible to resolve this issue. For this, navigate to Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock and select the option you want. Reduce the screen brightness as well to deal with this problem by opening up the Control Center from the upper right corner of the screen and making the necessary adjustments there. Navigate to Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations in order to select the auto-brightness option.
iPhone X not working in cold temperature
According to rumors, the iPhone X may not function properly at temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius or above 35 degrees Celsius. Even though the problem may linger for a few seconds or longer, you can resolve it quickly by locking and unlocking the screen many times. In addition, you could try rebooting your device to see if that helps.
A green line appearing on screen
If you are experiencing the same iPhone X issue as a small number of other users, in which a green line appears on the left or right side of your phone screen, it is time to replace the device. Samsung, the company that made the iPhone X display, has also had the same technical problem with its own Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone.
iPhone X 3D Touch Problem
If you are experiencing problems with 3D Touch on your iPhone X device, such as when it appears too quickly or when it appears too late, you should consider rebooting your device as a temporary solution. If it doesn’t work, you can try increasing the sensitivity by going to Settings > General > Accessibility and scrolling down to 3D Touch, and selecting Medium, Firm, or Light from the drop-down menu. If the problem isn’t related to sensitivity, you can try resetting your device by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings on your phone or tablet. In this case, your smartphone may forget Wifi passwords and other such information, but it will not lose any of your data.

Crackling speakers at high volume
This is just another issue with the iPhone X that has been experienced by numerous consumers around the world. If a simple restart does not solve the problem, you may need to do a hard reset on your device (as mentioned above). Try removing your case (if you are using one), disabling Bluetooth (since there may be interference from other devices in the region), or switching LTE from Voice & Data to simply Data before proceeding with the procedure. This may be accomplished by going to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > LTE and selecting the Data Only option. Additionally, check to see if the iPhone X’s receiver isn’t being obstructed by a screen protector or other obstruction (Receiver is a small slit located near the front-facing camera).
iPhone X Live Photo Problem
The possibility that you did not receive the iOS 11.1.2 update is a possibility if you are experiencing a distortion in Live Photos and videos recorded from your iPhone. To resolve the problem, simply upgrade to iOS 11.2.1 as soon as possible.
iPhone X can’t connect to the App Store
As a temporary solution, try restarting your smartphone, turning on and off cellular data and WiFi network, and upgrading to the most recent version. If everything else fails, you can manually sync the date and time by going to Settings > General > Date & Time > turn off the Set Automatic option and manually set the date and time. Open the App Store for a few seconds and then return to the page where you can toggle on the Set Automatic option for date and time settings. After that, dismiss the App Store from the multitasking tray and reopen the App Store to see if the problem has been resolved or not.
Notifications are not displayed when the phone is locked
This security feature is enabled by default on your device to prevent security and privacy concerns. To make this change, navigate to Settings > Notifications > Show Previews and select Always from the drop-down menu. Even if your phone is locked, you will be able to preview notifications from the notification center.
If nothing works on iPhone X
Take a backup of all your data on an external drive or cloud servers and then try to factory reset your smartphone if you are unable to discover a solution to frequent iPhone X difficulties.
When it came to faults and some frequent difficulties, the iPhone X was no different than any other smartphone device. Despite putting in its best efforts to bring about a revolution in the iPhone series, Apple was unable to please customers with its iPhone X handset. We are not fully dismissive of its capabilities as one of the best smartphones now available, but we are hopeful that things will continue to improve.
