Not all Apple Watches were effected by the charging bug. Why? Because it’s a software bug and is unpredictable. 

 

This is is a software bug, if it were hardware it would not stop/start occurring by waking the device. 

 

Apple will issue a patch and this will be fixed. The glory of iOS is you have the ability to push updates to users immediately. Unlike other operating systems. 

 

On an unrelated note my iPhone 6s Plus is a 2018 flagship now :) 

 

Its nice that you can have a positive view on almost any kind of completely embarrassing apple situation, but you kind of need to take off those apple glasses that they have issued you and realize that android manufacturers can push updates and fix problems too, it aint as magical as you'd want to believe it is. Well at least not as magical as releasing a 1k+ dollars phone that you can't charge in 2018. That takes some serious courage.

Yeah, sure they can. So far the only one even close to being able to do that is Google and their phones are worse than Apples.

My Xs charges just fine. Do you have data showing the prevalence of this problem?

Basically, its a bug with USB accessories and the blocking of data when the phone is not unlocked.

It seems that the new iPhone XS phones have a serious issue. 

When devices are plugged in when they are asleep, the iPhone is not detecting the lightning cable and therefore not charging. There are many people on the Apple forum experiencing the same issue

Lewis Hilsenteger, of Unbox Therapy fame is experiencing the problem on several of his iPhones, both the XS and the XS Max, but not all of them.

 

I wonder if this is indeed a software fault because I would have thought that if it was software, then it would affect all devices not just some of them

 

This is very bad for people who charge their phone overnight without checking to make sure their device is in fact charging

 

This is one of the main reasons why I refuse to buy a phone so soon after launch, I'd much rather get a last gen phone where all of the bugs have been fixed

Original post from Apple Forum member 'xMASTIFFSx'

 

It seems people have been having the same problem even after switching phones

 

this is not a bug,

 

unlock your iPhone, plug the cable in, it will charge now.

 

this is related to the feature that stops unauthorized access to your iPhone through Lightning Port,

there is a vulnerability in the iPhone Lightning Port that allows an attacker to gain access to the

information (through the Lightning Port) stored on your iPhone while your iPhone is locked.

 

this vulnerability is patched by disabling access to the Lightning Port after a given period of time when iPhone Locks,

so,

unlock your iPhone, plug it it, it will charge,

or

get a wireless charger

 

 

cheers!

that's only for the data part of the connection ._. it's supposed to let power through all the time if it's being supplied

Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch charges as usual when it’s connected to a USB power adapter.

Why is your title claiming that users are at fault?

Yeah, but this is a Tech News post. IMO, the title should really make no mention of a meme and should focus only on the content. Otherwise, it's incorrect information.

Clickbait. Unbox therapy is clickbait filler over dramatic spewing of a tiny problem blown up. The video could be 2 minutes and just say hey it doesn’t work here’s how and here’s what I have done to try and fix it

that was primarily the reason they even got around to fixing the mac throttling as quick by "firmware update" but it wasn't but whatever. gets the issue out more quickly and they'll probably end up fixing it soon rather than questioning the customers if they did anything wrong which apple tends to do. so everbody wins.

Also pretty self evident in this thread: we already have multiple people running interference and offering excuses for this issue some of which include that the users are indeed doing it wrong.

that's some security feature that doesn't give you access to lightning port until it's woken up even if the phone is locked LMAO, what kind of security is that? if the attacker already has your phone, does it even matter if it's in a sleep state and you have to wake it up or not?

The 'related feature' that you're talking about is supposed to stop a data connection, not a power connection. This feature also exists on other iPhone models, and those iPhone models still charge without being awoken, hence this is an issue.

 

Holding your phone wrong btw.

Well its not really 100% incorrect information. By charging your phone slightly differantly it will charge. It is just the regular method of plug and forget doesnt allways work. One have to charge the phone differently to get it to charge (that may or may not work)

 

The title is enginious as it incorperates a meme without having false information.

One thing I find odd. 

 

Reversing the orientation of the Lightning cable somehow charges the phone for some?

Uh, it's a bug.

 

It's not supposed to do that since barely any data is being transferred (the only data that is being transferred is information necessary to ensure proper and safe charging).

I look forward to the normal Apple response of "our product is not defective, you're just doing it wrong, it's your fault not ours."

What? I never get this forum’s hatred and blatant making up of things all things Apple.
