Apple launched their new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones last Friday, now some owners of the new iPhones are reporting connectivity issues with the handsets.
According to a recent report by MacRumors some owners of both devices have reported WiFi and LTE issues on the handsets. This includes a notable different in cellular reception when compared to the iPhone X and other Apple devices.
One owner reported that the LTE signal was considerably worse on their new devices, you can see what they had to say below.
I’m in South Carolina on VZW. My iPhone X consistently holds 3 or 4 bars of LTE in my home with solid speeds.
I activated XS Max yesterday and upon first activating/connecting LTE (reboot, airplane mode, etc.) I get nearly identical performance. Within a minute or two, the signal degrades and data stops working. Disabling LTE results in a full 3G signal with 3G data – no issues, rock solid. Re-enabling LTE works for a minute or two. Lather rinse repeat.
Other users have reported problems with WiFi with users having problems with the 5GHz connection on their routers and the handset appears to work better on 2.4GHz, you can find out more details over at MacRumors at the link below.
