The Ultimate Guide to Your iPhone X Issues, from A-Z

If you’re one of those people who likes to take care of things on their own whenever possible, we get it. In many cases, with a little bit of internet research, it’s possible to avoid the hassle of a trip to the store, while saving yourself time and money.

For those of you with Apple’s brand spanking new flagship phone, the iPhone X, this is no exception.

The iPhone X really is a marvel to behold – from its OLED full-screen display, to its dual 12 megapixel rear-facing cameras and 7 megapixel front-facing camera with highly-accurate Face ID software, the iPhone X unquestionably makes its mark as Apple’s greatest phone yet.

If the sleek design, sharp cameras, and crisp display weren’t convincing enough, the iPhone X’s performance will turn any skeptic into a believer. The six-core A11 Bionic processor and 3GB of RAM are far more capable than any computing requirements current software might have, and provide a seamless experience with plenty of processing power to spare.

The audio is surprisingly impressive, too. Despite the end-to-end screen, the iPhone X’s speakers are louder, and the quality is higher, than any we’ve heard to date.

With all that it’s got going on, there’s always the possibility that the iPhone X may encounter some issues – but then again, what phone doesn’t have its moments every now and then?

Before you rush to call in the big guns, though, we’ve got a few pointers that might save you some time. Sure, some iPhone X problems require the help of a trained technician, but in many cases, if you know what you’re doing, you can handle your iPhone X troubleshooting on your own.

Here at Puls, we’ve spent years fixing shattered phone screens, dealing with iPhone water damage, repairing broken headphone jacks, and more. We’ve taken our extensive experience and compiled in-depth guides to help users tackle their iPhone X problems without calling in the pros.

Sometimes, even seemingly complex issues such as slow iPhone X performance can be solved with a software update, adjustment to settings, or other troubleshooting tactic. For the big problems, Puls specializes in house calls – simply book an appointment in seconds by letting us know the time and place that’s best for you, and a certified Puls technician will visit you onsite to quickly repair any iPhone issue that you may have.

We now repair iPhone X screens in the New York City and Los Angeles areas - with more locations coming soon in the near future.

For everything else, we’ve outlined the following guide to iPhone X problems and solutions, so you can avoid any extra costs or interruptions to your busy schedule.

For better or for worse, many issues can be traced back to iPhone X battery problems, and may require a battery replacement, which is definitely something that’s best left to the pros.

However, often times while the battery appears to be the culprit, an iPhone’s software or settings might lead to rapid battery depletion, phone lag, or slowed performance.

Our blog, The Beat, will post a whole host of resources that can help you determine whether you’re in need of a battery replacement, or if some simple troubleshooting might do the trick to set things right.

You’ll be able to check out our handy reference to see if an iPhone X battery replacement is necessary, or if it’s possible for you to solve the issue on your own.

The beautiful hi-res OLED iPhone X all screen display makes using the device both more pleasant and easier than ever – but it also makes your phone more vulnerable to iPhone X screen problems, and if the phone takes a spill, can increase the odds that you’ll end up with a cracked iPhone X screen.

While it has been rumored that Apple will switch from the more standard LCD display to mostly OLED displays on its devices in 2019, as of now only the iPhone X all screen display uses OLED to provide darker blacks, a thinner profile, and a crisper picture.

Like many beautiful things, the OLED display has its delicate moments, and Apple even hinted to users that the iPhone X all screen display must be handled a bit more delicately than previous displays.

It’s not as complicated as it sounds though – and our useful guide to maintaining your iPhone X display will help you keep your screen in tip-top shape and help prevent any issues from arising. We'll also help you decide whether switching over to the iPhone X is worth the hefty price tag.
