There have been a lot of questions about iCloud restore problems online. Apple fans are taking to forums to find answers to this seemingly common iPhone X issue, like this one from the Apple Communities forum:
If your iPhone X grinds to a halt when updating iCloud Settings, a force restart may be just what the Apple doctor ordered.
To initiate a force restart, press Volume Up and release, then press Volume Down and release, and then press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears.
Once your mobile device reboots, you should be able to successfully restore your iCloud without issue.
Another common issue iPhone X users report is Wi-Fi not connecting properly. In the Apple Communities discussion forum, more than 600 users asked for answers.
This frustrating issue even persisted after updates. What is the Wi-Fi connectivity solution? If your positive that the hardware of your mobile device is not the culprit, it’s time to jump into your phone’s settings.
First, turn Wi-Fi off and on using the toggle. If this doesn’t work, you can try to “forget” the wireless network and re-add it.
To do this, go to Settings > Wi-Fi > and select your wireless network tapping the “Information” circle icon. At the top of the screen tap “Forget this Network”. Next, re-add the wireless network by selecting it and entering the password.
Bluetooth connectivity is extremely important when it comes to getting the most from your iPhone X. However, Bluetooth connectivity is an issue for many Apple enthusiasts.
Many users are finding that their Bluetooth feature is perpetually searching for devices:
Sometimes this issue will be solved after the latest iOS update. But in other instances, the problem will persist post-update. Thankfully, there are a few solutions that are known to fix this problem,
First, try forgetting and adding your device by going to Settings > Bluetooth > select the “Information” icon > tap “Forget this Device”. Then try to reconnect the advice.
If that doesn’t work, try resetting your Network Settings by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Remember to have your passwords handy before you do this.
Lastly, rest you iPhone X to factory defaults. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This causes the iPhone to forget all stored passwords. It is important to backup what you want to keep to iCloud or to your Mac.
After iPhone X was launched, Apple noticed the OLED display could cause problems for users.
Apple explained that, “Expected behavior and can include “image persistence” or “burn-in,” where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen.”
Unfortunately, there is no update that can fix this iPhone X problem. There are, however, a few potential fixes to give a go.
First, try to tweak the time it takes for your screen to Auto Lock (turn off). Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto Lock, and then choose a short Auto Lock time.
Reducing screen brightness can also be effective to avoid burn-in issues. Access you Control Center to do this, or jump into Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations, and then adjust screen brightness.
What’s the point of having a mobile device if you can’t get the apps you need? Connecting to the App Store has been another iPhone X problem for users.
The issue is so common that Apple dedicated a support page to help users figure it out:
“When you try to open the iTunes Store, iBooks Store, or App Store, you might see a ‘Cannot connect to iTunes Store’ alert message or something similar. The iTunes Store, App Store, or iBooks Store may also not load anything at all, or unexpectedly stop in the middle of downloading content,” the page cites.
If you encounter this, first, ensure the App Store is not down. If it is up and running smoothly, you’ll want to diagnose the problem via your mobile device.
Go to Settings > Cellular Data > and then turn the App Store off and on using the toggle.
If that’s doesn’t do the trick, try syncing your mobile device’s date and time. Go to General > Date & Time > Toggle Set Automatically to off, and then type in date and time manually.
