Charging is one of those unpleasant but necessary processes of the iPhone X/iPhone Xr/iPhone Xs/iPhone Xs Max. The truth is that you have so many exciting things to try on your device that, when you get the low battery notification, you hate having to put it all on hold. But that’s the key word here, you have to! Otherwise, you won’t be able to use the smartphone at all, so, better to wait for a little while and you can later resume from where you left.
But is it really just “a little while”?
Well, if the iPhone is in good working condition, that’s right, it’s just a little while that you have to wait. Assuming you find this timeframe to continually extend, you might want to check on that. If it’s taking longer to charge, you probably have a somewhat common problem: the slow charging issue on iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max.
Do not worry, many other Apple users before you have solved the slow charging issue with one of the following attempts:
- An iPhone reset;
- A change of charging cable;
- A cleanup of the USB port;
- Some professional feedback from a technician.
Each of these options might and eventually will give an answer to your grey battery problem. The only thing we are asking you, for now, is to have some patience. Don’t jump to the wrong conclusions and don’t start buying anything before you hear a technician’s thoughts on it, if you’ll come to this situation on iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max! Until then…
Option no. 1 – you can initiate a simple reset process
This guide here, on how to reset the iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max, will make it clear. Aside from the actual instructions, you’ll also discover that there are many different problems that an iPhone can have and that a reset can fix. When you know what it involves, you’re also more willing to give it a try, so, try this software reboot.
Option no. 2 – you can try to charge the iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max 10 with a different cable
We know, we said you shouldn’t buy anything to troubleshoot the slow charging problem on the iPhone X,iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max. But a different USB cable to hook up to the charging unit is something you probably have around the house. In any case, a friend can borrow you one, only to test if the iPhone charges faster with a different cable.
Option no. 3 – you can remove any debris from the charging port
Sometimes, you might have a perfectly functional charging unit and USB cable yet stumble upon some dirt, debris or lint caught up in the USB port. Lucky for you, it only takes a paper clip – or anything else, sharp and thin – to clean things up (carefully!) inside the port.
Option no. 4 – you can let the specialists take over
After the entire above, you have to agree. What else can you do on your own? Do you afford to let the slow charging problem worsen on the iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max? If you’re out of options and in need for a quick fix, an Apple technician will give you just that!
