6 Tips For Faster Apple IPhone Charging

Apple has released a software update to address a bug that led to charging issues for some users of its new iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones.

After the products were released last month, some customers reported the devices would not charge when plugged in if the screen was off in "sleep" mode.

They said their devices would only charge when the screen was on.

@AppleSupport Hi there! Currently using the iPhone Xs Max and have noticed that when I try to charge the phone (via lightning, not Qi) when it’s idle, it won’t charge automatically. One must tap to wake and unlock prior it to charging. Is there an OS fix for this by any chance?

@AppleSupport I’m having an issue with my iPhone XS Max charging. I’m using the box and cord that was sent with it. It won’t recognize I have a charger inserted when my phone is asleep. Then when I wake it up it’ll charge, but sometimes stops charging in the middle of the night.

Charging in sleep mode possible

Apple did not make any comment about the issue at the time, but it was known to be linked to a security feature introduced to stop Apple devices being hacked via USB and the charging point, which disables connection when the phone is left idle for a certain amount of time.

Every iPhone has been a great iPhone – and nearly all of them have been excellent. Love 'em or hate 'em, Apple knows how to make fantastic devices. So, 11 years after the first model launched, how to rank them? If we merely lined up the 20 distinct models in order of excellence the list would end up just being a chronological affair from oldest to newest, with the possible exception of the odd iPhone 5C or SE. No, what's needed here is context. Many of these phones have been game-changers in their time, ushering in hardware advancements, new ways of interacting with gadgets, and software additions that became indispensable. And with that in mind we've considered their impact and influence, the quality of competition and any major flaws, in addition to obvious factors such as form and function.>

Now the technology giant has released the iOS 12.0.1 software update, which includes a solution to the bug.

The notes on the update confirm it "fixes an issue where some iPhone XS devices did not immediately charge when connected to a Lightning cable".

Update also corrects iPad issues

At the time of the security update, which was introduced earlier this year, Apple did acknowledge its introduction could affect charging in some cases, warning users that they might have to unlock their device in order for a connected accessory to be recognised.

The update corrects this problem, as well as an issue around WiFi connectivity and a keyboard issue on the iPad, Apple confirmed.
