Apple iPhone X Bug Won’t Let Users Pick Up Incoming Calls
Launched in September 2017, the iPhone X has become the most successful premium smartphone in India. It sold more units than the budget-friendly OnePlus 5T and even the Samsung Galaxy Note8. This happened despite the iPhone X being the priciest iPhone ever. Just like every other new iPhone, the iPhone X runs iOS 11 which had had its issues so far.
A new bug is being reported by iPhone X users where they can’t pick up incoming calls. What happens is that the ringtone starts playing but, the screen stays off for several seconds. This means that users are not able to perform the simplest of tasks on a smartphone that costs so much of money. Users tried resetting their devices but, to no avail.
Apple has conceded that it is looking into the matter. Apple is expected to fix this issue and a new iOS update will be rolled out sooner rather than later. Something similar to the controversy-ridden Google Pixel 2 XL as well. After the Android 8.1 Oreo update, many users were not able to pick up incoming calls because the screen would remain off for several seconds.
Every phone, every feature phones light up the display during an incoming call. To face such a trivial issue after paying so much of money for a smartphone is shocking. Although this doesn’t measure to the number of complaints against the Pixel 2 devices, Apple has to take care of this swiftly. In the last couple of months, Apple has come under scrutiny for deliberately slowing down older iPhones.
Tim Cook has since then, come out and said that a future iOS update will let users choose between wearing down their battery or slowing down their iPhone.
