How to Fix iPhone X Problems

If you’re dealing with an iPhone X problem your first instinct might be to contact Apple, head into your local carrier store, or make an appointment to see a Genius at an Apple Store.

Those are certainly options, but you might be able to fix your issue from the comfort of your computer chair or couch.

If you can’t find a fix for your issue there, make sure you check Apple’s discussion forums. There are a lot of knowledgable users on Apple’s forums and you might get a solution to your issue in a matter of minutes.

If you want to get in touch with Apple, you can do so via the company’s Twitter account. You can also get in contact with Apple Support via the company’s website.

If Apple’s frontline customer service can’t help you solve your issue, it’s time to take your iPhone X to an Apple Store (if one is close by) or your local carrier store.

Schedule a Genius Bar appointment and have them run diagnostics on your device to see if they can pinpoint the problem. Your iPhone X is under warranty so they might offer you a replacement if it’s a serious defect.

How to Downgrade Your iPhone X

Downgrading to an older version of iOS isn’t a guaranteed way to solve problems, but it has worked for many people in the past.

Apple typically keeps the downgrade loophole open for a few weeks after it releases a new version of iOS so you’ll need to move quickly if you want to drop back down.

If you’re new to the iPhone and iOS, take a look at our guide to downgrading.

What’s Next

Apple’s currently working on its new iOS 16 operating system and the software is currently in beta testing ahead of its official release this fall.

    My iphoneX got stuck on the apple logo and nothing else would happen. It always stays on the apple logo. I took it to apple’s service center and they said it was a logic board issue and it couldnt be fixed – I needed to get a new phone. I paid nearly 1500$ for somethgin I used for just 2 years and 8 months :( I was told that the logic board typically lasts 5 years, but could fail before that. I had the extended warranty, but that expired at the end of the 2nd year..
