However not all users report and such sudden battery drop in iPhone X. However there are many ways you can use to save iPhone X battery and gain some extra battery time.



>  Use Fast charging option The iPhone X and the iPhone 8 models support fast charging up to a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes.

You need both an Apple-branded USB-C Lightning cable and a power adapter that supports the USB-C Power Delivery specification (USB-C PD.)  But need to purchase separately. If you’re charging your iPhone X using a fast charge, you may notice that when the charge hits 80 percent, things slow down. This behaviour is normal.

Image
Apple’s latest flagship iPhone X is catching bad press for Bluetooth issues. iPhone X is great and have one of advanced and unique feature but it just drops Bluetooth all the time and runs hot when you actually use it.
Apple Watch and Bose wireless headphones won't connect to iPhone X and Keeps on dropping and reconnecting.

Unable to make FaceTime calls, iPhone/iPad issue

Image
Face time is very old and a successful feature introduced by Apple to iPhone and mac devices. But this calling feature has been surrounded by call related issue from long time. One basic problem that is reported by many users is that they are unable to make calls using Facetime.

When they open FaceTime, my "recents" come up, but users are unable to initiate a FaceTime call with them. In some cases users are able to make call once the other person has called to them.  Rather than appearing the normal white color, the camera icon next to each contact appears a bit grayed out.   
The issue is majorly reported with outgoing facetime calls where users can answer an incoming call but fail to do a Facetime call from their iPhone or other mac devices like iPad. All incoming and outgoing calls fail when sending and receiving from my new iMac.  The Facetime related issue are reported with iOS 10 and iOS 11 on iPhone 6/7 plus. There are few fixes/ workaround available that you many try to…

iMessage conversations out of order iPhone 6s/7plus

Image
Many iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 plus users are facing receiving iMessages text out of order iphone and iOS10.  iMessage conversations are appearing in random order rather than chronologically with most recent at the top. This is making it difficult to find out the recent messages as all iMessage are out of sequence and in case you have many iMessage threads it may appear annoying to find out the message you are looking for. It is very easy to miss text messages. Even upgrading the iOS did not help as ios 11 text imessages out of order.

New messages are not moving the conversation to the top of the list, and new messages within a conversation are not necessarily the most recent. It seems that imessage timestamp out of order. It appears that factory reset + restored, turned on/off iPhone do not fix the issue. Even when user restart the iPhone, found that some iMessages deleted and out of order. Below step could help you to change order of text messages iPhone to expected order.

Apple’s new iOS 11 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch improves the network security and does not allow connecting to unsecure network. All types of iPhone models iphone 6s/7+ and iPhone 8 are affected by this. After updating iPhone or iPad to iOS 11, some users cannot connect to the unsecured Wi-Fi networks  which they were able to join before iOS 11 update.


One users mentioned “Not able to join a free “Google Starbucks” network in Starbucks and then directed to a login page to access internet on my iPhone 7. However, after upgraded to iOS 11, the system indicates that the network is unsecured and conditions no longer is presented.”


iPad Pro also cannot join unsecured wireless network, The issues only happens in iOS 11.
iOS has displayed "unsecured network" on networks that do not enable at least WPA encryption since iOS 9. But I never prevented users from connecting to the unsecure network. And it seems that on iOS11 prevent you from connecting to unsecured network.
