  • Test this on your own iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Comment with your results below.

    • @Unbox Therapy my iPhone 7 Plus has the same problem.

    • I have an iPhone 5S and I have the exact same problem

    • I have an iPhone XS and it’s fine compared to others

    • I got an iPhone XS, no issues with it...

    • I dont have an iPhone XS only 5S and 6

  • Shitty Android fanboy

  • Samsung s10... the dream phone

  • I was abt to go off then I realized I have a XR

  • Now apple will suggest to buy their new wireless charger to fix this xs issue

  • Just buy samsung!!

  • On mine its working fine

  • My iPhone has this problem when I bought it ,but I was able to solve it by exchanging by iPhone using regular XS 256gb variant .APPLE is playing with there customers .I am regreting that I bought an iPhone .as soon as Galaxy S10+ comes I will buy it .

  • His phone is faulty then coz it don’t happen on my Xs max

  • Apple don't care bout their customers. Apple cares bout apple

  • You have a serious problem apple is the best and always will be you can’t change my mind

  • And that’s y i like 8 pluses and X’s

  • I don’t care I still want one

  • My one is fine.

  • Apple makes the problem then sells the solution. iSheep *Apple died after the 6s*

  • Just buy a huawei for 200 bucks and keep it 5x longer then an iphone x probably without any problems

  • Thats why you dont buy brand new you dumb fucks. I buy my excellent condition phones second hand for half the price from envirofone about 6months after release

  • This isn't really a problem for me in the day if i had this phone (Because i use my phone on charge). But it is a problem when i play on my PC or go to sleep xD

  • I kind of have the same problem on my iPhone 6s, it doesn’t want to charge sometimes; it’ll only charge when I plug it in... 🤣🤣🤣

  • Im pretty sure its a software problem because i have to flip my charger around most of the time to actually charge my iphone 6s.

  • It happens to my iphone xs too but not always. When it happens sometimes it works out when I tap the screen but sometimes I have to flip over the cable 🤷🏻‍♀️ I thought that its just my phone’s problem though

  • it is port need to pull softly the lightning cable make sure the port detect the lightning cable chip . happen to me on my Iphone x

  • Apple fixed it iPhones are the best

  • Its probably because apple is using cheap batteries

    • Not_Jackson 777 it was a glitch resulting from a safety feature actually. iPhones recently (I think starting with either the release of the X or the release of iOS 12) would have a feature that prevented devices you plug into from immediately accessing your phone via the lightning cable. It was a security choice which fits apple’s reputation of privacy with their iPhones lately, even against the wishes of the government. Problem is, it supposedly couldn’t tell apart USB transfer vs just regular power. This issue has long been resolved with an update. Your comment seems very dated despite being 1 day old.

  • This happened with my old ipad

  • I liked it when apple make phones once per year now the literally make a new more expensive one like Every other month Steve jobs would not approve

  • Like if you get tricked! Read more

  • Can anyone in the comments tell me if they fixed the problem or not? Because I bought my iPhone XS yesterday but didn't open it yet.

  • Lou I need your help big time. Pass me one of them phones so I can see something right quick.

  • You’re great for also bringing up issues.... Currently I’ve faced a horrible problem with apple, I reset my iPhone 7 and it won’t activate or work. Apple support are telling me they can do nothing about it although it’s for sure a flawed product according to one of their branches!

  • 5 years later : Remove charging port 10 years later : remove speaker

  • good thing i stick with the xr

  • ----->. I believe it has to do with RAISE TO WAKE. Some of the phones that are or are not working in your test have tap to wake or raise to wake enabled. You’ll have to change the settings on all phones to the same and repeat the test.

  • Just buy the wireless charger pad if you have 1,000$ to drop on a phone you more then likely have 50$ for a wireless charging pad..

  • I have the same problem with my iPhone 8 Plus as well

  • I have the same problem with my iPhone 8 Plus as well

  • Good choice of bgm

  • It’s a delayed reaction and when the phone is asleep it doesn’t have all its functions Because sometimes my iPhone 8 turns on automatically then charges or just charges black

  • I wish that the note wasn't alot more than the S-Series

  • My iphone 6 did the same thing the other day before it updated IDK...

  • iphone is just not made properly its faulty sue them for wasting money

  • I bought iPhone XS Max 512GB recently. After about 3 weeks my phone lost sound on Siri and Map etc. The sound on calls was very low and the only way to make a proper phone call was by switching to speakers.Because my iPhone Max was within the time limit, the network provider replaced my iPhone Max twice with the new handsets, each time I experienced exactly the same problem after using the handset about 3 to 4 weeks each time.I checked all the settings many times and tried all the suggested remedies on Internet and everything was correct the volume was on full. Nothing seems to work. Siri could not hear my voice. My map was with no sound and the general sound issues. I am IT technician and I believe everything on my iPhone setting was correct but the issue was not resolved.I had to return the handset and cancel my contract.I am planning to buy Samsung S10.

  • How can i buy this salary is 250usd a month..i keep 7 month already still not enough to buy..can u give me one..

  • ~Stop complaining. Go buy android.~ Apple

  • That never happened with me with my Xs Max.🤷🏾‍♀️

  • Mines did this, this week. I just bought one. And I seen this video 4 months ago

  • I have not had this issue. Guess they fixed it.

  • Help! It's asking too much to pick up my iPhone from the table AND put the charger in 😧😥😣😣

  • Give me one plz😂

  • Tristar issue. Power management not working. If it stop charging all together, tristar being over taxed, it gives out. Software fix could fix some, but prob not the ones that stopped completely.

  • I didn’t lisen to you and I bout the x It cracked by dropping it a couple months later You are helping me find a new phone for my birthday Thank you so much and btw mine the 30th of March so soonn

  • ....i guess it's time to get an android

  • have you tried restarting it? -Apple

  • Fuck these new ones im tryna grt iphone 8

  • 0:02 quickest dislike in my life

  • The dramatic music lol

  • Sooo y’all just can’t turn on your phone?

  • Retirarse Satanás en el nombre de Jesús te que te retires con el poder de mi padre retires por yo no soy for ella regristo mi teléfono con mi entidad

  • The New iphone XZ We fixed your charge gate You’re welcome And wait a new price 2k$

  • Buy Samsung or Huawei !!!!

  • *who's watching this on android*

  • *were lucky our android has no problem*

  • THIS GUY MAKES ME MAD,he didn’t make the phone so how does he know

  • This is why people have been holding onto their older phones it just seems like every new model just continues to have problems whether its hardware or software related smh

  • Glad I haven't gone through this with my max phew...

  • Hi unbox therapy, I would like to let you know, and this is a real problem that I’m having. When I plug in my iPad mini 4, iPhone SE, IPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPad mini 3, iPad Air 2 when the screen is not on then it won’t charge, as soon as I press the home button it starts charging just like you have shown in the video. Now those are all the Apple products we have in the house besides the laptops or Apple TV. I would like you to make an update video or a video about this if possible, I think your the only one that can do this.

  • I remember having problems with my 7plus where it would tell me the device wasn’t supported but I was charging it using the cable and box that came with the phone.

  • Has this issue been fixed?

  • You mean to tell me that there are iPhone diehard fans out there that actually have a problem with this man making a video addressing a major problem with this phone model because he’s making the company look bad ? Give me a f****** break

  • This had not happened to me and I have the Xs Max and it charges when I just plug it in

  • Are you watching this Steve?

  • The music he added in the video is very odd comparing to the vedio u know what I mean 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • have you sent this video to Apple

  • This is happing to me with iphone 7 cannot charge

  • Same with iPhone‘s a software „feature“ (bug)

  • iphone 4 4s 5 5s 6 6s is better than 7 7+ 8 8+ x xs xr xmax sumsung better than iphone

  • You have to pay more for the chargeable version..

  • وش السالفه🙄

  • Is why I don't have iPhone.

  • You have this much iPhone xsmaxgive me no one I live in india

  • I want a Huawei mate 20 pro

  • $1200 phone that can’t charge this is pathetic I see why niggas going back to android 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

  • Waze does not flip 180 degrees when the phone is used upside down (to plug charger on the top) unlike the older iphones like 6s plus where it was not a problem.

  • iPhones are shit. That's all.

  • That happens to my iPhone 6

  • Has this issue been fix since this videos? It is now 2-12-19 ( tuesday )

    • Can't imagine the problem is still around, otherwise you would've heard a lot about it

  • I can't believe I just bought an iPhone for the first time ever and I might run into this. JFC. Thanks Lou. Ugh. Would go Pixel but, ya know, Google build quality. smh

  • I think there are problems with iPhone X as well, very few and minor ones ... but still

  • Have they fixed it yet

  • Laughing at the max using a xr lol

  • We can replace the lightning port for $500, but you have to buy an adapter for an additional $300. Oh what’s that, you have the max? It’ll cost an extra $400 for the bigger screen. -Apple Me: or you could just tap the phone to start the charging and save $1200

  • What is the best using IPhone.

  • I think it’s because of design issue. Apple have been bending the display at the button of the phone and probably took up too many space, and the charging sensors and too weak and small to detect the cable

  • This would not happen if Steve job alive... Apple died because of the legand stev jobs absence

  • This is why apple became 1 trillion company

  • Assphone Assphone s (super wide ass) max. Its a piece junk phone and always have been. With a huge price tag and bling and PR hype to sell it for that price and idiots buying this Pile of crap worth. 98$

  • Can I have one those iPhones in your studios 🙂🌚

  • Starts in 2:42 🙂

  • Why you buy Android.
