About a strange bug reported dozens of users. It is possible that the problem is related to iOS 12, and it will be resolved in the near future. Several owners of new smartphones iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max complained about the incorrect work of the company’s Lightning cable when charging. It is reported that the devices do not start charging after the cable is connected if the screen is turned off. Apple is already aware of the problem of dozens of users around the world.

Reports of a defect have appeared in the Apple support communities, the MacRumors edition forum, the Reddit portal, and the social networks Twitter and YouTube. In most cases, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max start charging when the user lifts the smartphone and activates the screen. Nevertheless, a number of users wrote that to charge their smartphones you need both to wake up the iPhone and to disconnect and reconnect the Lightning cable to start the charging process. In more rare cases, iPhone with the screen off stops responding completely.
