It seems that with just two weeks on the market, incidents begin to appear in some of the users of the new iPhone XS and XS Max, in this case, related to the battery. Apparently, users have begun to report the existence of an error that prevents the iPhone from charging while the screen is off . The worst is that this error could have started to appear on other older devices.

As we have mentioned, this problem manifests itself in some devices when connected to a charger, regardless of whether it is official or not. In some extreme cases, the phones stop responding completely , although it is normal that you only need to activate the screen to start charging. This problem has been shown by one of the most relevant YouTube technology channels, Unbox Therapy, with quite negative results that demonstrate the relevance of the problem.

After this, users have begun to speculate on the possible causes of the error, indicating that it could be a problem related to one of the functions introduced by iOS 11.4.1 to protect the Lightning port after a blocked time. However, disabling this function does not seem to be solving the problem , so this cause has been ruled out. Nor does it seem to be a hardware problem, as it seems that it can also affect older iPhone and iPad models.

For now, we will have to wait for Apple to offer a solution to users, probably in the form of visit link a software update , to resolve this error. In any case, you can help the company find the problem faster by contacting the technical service , which can use the diagnostic data of the affected units.

4 ways to use your old iPhone after buying the iPhone XS

Thousands of people have bought the new Apple iPhone XS, and that means that with their old smartphone they could have done three things: give it to someone, sell it or store it in the bottom of a drawer . If you are one of those who have done the latter, you see dusting it, because you will regret leaving it unused.

An old iPhone can still give a lot of itself. The uses that can be given are wide and varied. We tell you 4 ways to take advantage of your old Apple smart mobile phone .

Security camera

A good surveillance system is a great investment. Several cameras are installed at different points so that, through the Internet, they allow the user to see what they get. There are even devices that, in addition to video, also transmit audio and turn on when they detect movement.

However, if we have several iPhone that we no longer use, we can mount that security system ourselves. Presence is a free app with which we can build our own network of cameras . If we pay, it is possible to increase the quality of the video and with the annual subscription we can make longer recordings and store them.

The best thing about Presence is that it is compatible with devices with iOS 6.0 onwards , so many iPhone are compatible. The only drawback to keep in mind is that, as the duration of the iPhone is not very long, we have to have them constantly connected to the charger.


The screens of the iPhone have very good quality, which makes them perfect for watching multimedia content such as movies and television series .

If we have a subscription to streaming content services such as Netflix, HBO or Amazon Prime Video, we can continue to consume them even if the device does not have a SIM card , as long as it is connected to a WiFi network.

If, on the other hand, we already have a large collection of movies on our computer, with Plex we can view them on the iPhone without any problem.

Mp3 player

Although iTunes is not going through its best moment, many users still store their music library there. Therefore, it is a good option to synchronize it with our old iPhone and, thus, have an MP3 player and not have to pull our current mobile.

In addition, if we have an Apple Music or Spotify subscription, we can continue using them and even download music offline .

EBook Reader

Although electronic ink screens like Amazon Kindle screens are the best, we can also use the iPhone to read .

We have the Apple and Amazon Kindle book store . As if that were not enough, we can read articles and news previously saved with Instapaper or Pocket.
