Until now, Apple had to replace the entire iPhone when users would break Face ID. The tech giant had no way of independently repairing the TrueDepth camera, even though Face ID iPhones were first introduced in 2017. In February of this year, Apple finally figured out how to repair it without needing to replace the entire device. However, until now, the Cupertino company excluded the iPhone X from this new policy. This may have been because Apple was tweaking the TrueDepth camera on the newer models starting from the iPhone XS/XR. This may have made the iPhone X harder to repair due to the way it was integrated. Now, however, such repairs on the iPhone X devices are finally possible.

iPhone X Is Apparently Encountering Massive Technical Issues

iPhone X might be currently the most popular and expensive smartphone in the market, but if you thought the ‘popular’ tag will make it function 100% perfect then you are absolutely mistaken. Recent reports on the news and around social media have been claiming big issues on iPhone X and every other iPhone X user is reporting problems, making the scenario very complicated and the fans are surely fuming.

And the users can’t attend the calls without screen waking up, making it a major issue across the iPhone userbase. I think this problem is with sensors where the phone display doesn’t come back on when moving the iPhone X away from the ear, and software related where the red hangup button needs to more responsive.
