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.

Take a look at our list of fixes for common iPhone X problems. Our guide offers fixes for some of the most common problems plaguing Apple’s software.

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.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max, 256GB, Midnight Green, Fully Unlocked (Renewed)
  • Fully unlocked and compatible with any carrier of choice (e.g. AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, US-Cellular, Cricket, Metro, etc.).
  • The device does not come with headphones or a SIM card. It does include a charger and charging cable that may be generic, in which case it will be UL or Mfi (Made for iPhone) Certified.
  • Inspected and guaranteed to have minimal cosmetic damage, which is not noticeable when the device is held at arms length.
  • Successfully passed a full diagnostic test which ensures like-new functionality and removal of any prior-user personal information.
  • Tested for battery health and guaranteed to have a minimum battery capacity of 80%.

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 14 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. It could help.

What’s Next

If your iPhone X is having a hard time, keep an eye out for new software.

iOS 14.2 was the last know upgrade in Apple’s iOS pipeline which means it could be weeks before the company releases a new version.

That said, we’ve heard chatter about an iOS 14.3 update so there’s a chance Apple releases a new version of iOS 14 in the near future.

Keep an eye out for new details as we push through the month.

    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..
