The iPhone XS and XS Max Have Got Big Charging Problems

The new iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones have some serious charging issues!

Apple is yet to issue any statement regarding the complaints of iPhone XS and XS Max smartphones not charging.  Many owners have reported that their iPhone refuses to charge if it’s been on standby for a while.  Other users report that their phones only charge when the screen is switched on.  Unbox Therapy YouTube blogger Lewis Hilsenteger has dubbed the issue “Chargegate” in a video on his channel where he demonstrates the issues.  Apple is yet to say anything about the issue.
