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.

We’ve also put together some tips to help you improve your iPhone X’s overall performance and a guide to improving iPhone X battery life.

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.

Downgrade

If you own the iPhone X and you’re struggling on iOS 13.2, you can try downgrading to iOS 13.1.3 or iOS 13.1.2.

Downgrading to an older version of iOS 13 isn’t a guaranteed way to solve problems, but it has worked for many people in the past. If you’re new to the iPhone and iOS, take a look at our guide to downgrading.

What’s Next

If your device is struggling on iOS 13.2, relief could be weeks away.

Apple hasn’t confirmed iOS 13.2.2 or iOS 13.2 (it recently released iOS 13.2.1 for HomePod) and it’s unclear when these updates will arrive.

Given the number of issues found on iOS 13.2, we could see the company issue a new version of iOS 13 before the end of the year so keep an eye out for new software as we make our way into November.
