'Chargegate': Apple users complain that new iPhones fail to charge

iPhone XR Release Date: How to get pre-approved & preorder the new iPhone XR

In the photo realm, the iPhone XS Max captures great images in bright light, with reliable and consistent results shot after shot. Apple launched the new 2018 iteration iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max last week that were priced at Rs 99,900 to Rs 1,44,900. This has led to a sheer disappointment among many iPhone X fans.

There has been no official statement from Apple at this point, but users are anxiously waiting for direction on how to fix the issue and frantically trying to solve the problem on their own. Specifically, users are reporting that the selfie camera aggressively smooths the skin of its subjects. In addition, a very effective image stabilization system keeps camera shake to a minimum, making the new iPhone an enticing option for any mobile video shooter.

ET spoke to four large multibrand retail chains and three Apple Premium Resellers (APR) chains across the country with more than 1,500 stores among them.

Most of the phones would charge only when the display was activated to wake up the device.

The Geekbench 4 test suite put the Apple iPhone XS and XS Max firmly at the top, with 13% faster single-threaded CPU performance compared to the iPhone X. Multi-threaded performance got a nice 10% boost as well.

Tensions high as US Senators send Brett Kavanaugh nomination to final vote
His principal accuser, Christine Blasey Ford , said she was 100 percent sure he sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. That's a huge boost for Republican voters who lagged 10 points behind Democrats before Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings.

It's worth noting that Apple's warranty, like those of all phone manufacturers, doesn't cover "liquid contact" damage, which means if the liquid resistance does fail on the iPhone XS Max you won't be covered.

iPhone XS and it rivals square off in the darkness of night.

Teething problems are fairly common with new phone launches, and often addressed via a software update.

As usual, the DxOMark review of the iPhone XS Max camera goes through an exhaustive series of tests which push almost every feature of the camera to the limit. But the photo effect you prefer may just come down to your taste in selfies, and it's a good idea to look at side-by-side comparisons before choosing your phone.

Apple has also slashed prices of old-generation iPhones in India. There is a contradictory statement about this bug among iPhone XS users. So yes, the phone does after-process the image, but then all digital cameras do that. With that said, you may be one of the unfortunate victims - so the extent, whether wide or small, is little comfort when your iPhone refuses to charge.
