No time for users to buy new iPhones, as the first problems appeared. Apparently, the problem is massive.
Readers of MacRumors have created a whole line of angry messages, which at the time of this writing, 21 pages. All of them complain about the drop in connection speed with the Internet: both over Wi-Fi and through LTE.
Here is one example:
I’m in South Carolina at VZW. My iPhone X consistently shows 3 or 4 strips of LTE in the house at a stable speed.
I activated XS Max yesterday, and when I first turn on / connect LTE (reboot, airplane mode, etc.), I get almost identical performance.
Within a minute or two the signal deteriorates, and the Internet stops working. Disabling LTE leads to a full 3G signal, with 3G – no problems. Re-enabling LTE runs for a minute or two.
Some people assume that the problem is tied to an operator, or a modem. So, AT & T customers have almost no problems, whereas Verizon has everything bad.
But there is another problem with Wi-Fi. Some complain that the new iPhone XS and XS Max work better in 2.4 GHz networks, rather than in the 5 GHz band.
Personally, I can confirm the second problem. My iPhone XS Max works very hard with “wi-fay” 5 GHz. But at the same time, it feels great at 2.4 GHz. And the smartphone often switches itself to this frequency.
What can I say … we are waiting for the prompt update of the software from Apple. [ Macrumors
