Face ID not working properly
Many iPhone X users have reported that after locking their device, they are unable to open it because their face ID does not work fast or it works late.
Actually it works when you raise your device or simply when you press wake button, and then you can see a padlock on top of the screen. When your face is detected, your iPhone gets unlock which only takes 2 seconds.
But face ID works faster than that which means that whenever your screen turns on, you can instantly swipe up. But now it’s taking time for many users and this is really very annoying. So, how to fix it? Well you can follow the below steps:

Old methods of doing things are gone forever
Well, you may bit confusing but this is true that whatever you used to do with your old iPhones, the same thing you cannot do with your new iPhone X. the reasons is that in iPhone X, there is no Home button.
And this completely means that now its not that easy to do any task immediately. So you have to forget all those things you are habituated on old iPhone models.
This is yet another annoying problem for many iPhone X lovers. But there is a solution for the things you do daily like resting your device, taking screen shot, closing apps etc. Now with this new iPhone X, how would you do all these? Let us look at them:
Reset your phone– Press volume-up and then volume-down and after that press and hold wake button till you see the Apple logo. Then immediately release the button and all these things you have to do in a quick series.
Close all apps– Swipe up the screen from bottom but don’t move your hand from place for at least two seconds. After that you will get all the apps which are open in a sequence. Now the app which you want to close, find it by scrolling left or right.
Press it and hold for few seconds. You will get a red icon with while stripe. Click on that to close the app. You can use the same process for closing other apps as well.
Taking screenshot– Only you have to press and release the volume-up button along with wake button.
Switching off iPhone– You can press and hold volume button or sleep/wake button for few seconds. Your phone will vibrate and you can see a menu that states “slide to power off” slider.
iPhone X screen burn-in
As it is already mentioned that iPhone X features OLED display and due to this, users can experience sharper and stunning photos. But at the same time, users have seen a burn-in on their images. Even Apple was aware of the issue and so it released a statement saying- ‘image persistence’ or ‘burn-in’ could appear on the iPhones.
Well to fix this issue, Apple says to reduce the brightness of your device. You can easily adjust the brightness by going to control center and there you can easily adjust the iPhone X brightness.
Another thing which you can do is to turn Auto-Lock. It is seen that static images are more likely to burn-in so you should be careful that your iPhone’s screen is turned off when it is not in use. For that, simply go to Settings > Displays & Brightness > Auto-Lock.
Unable to reach my thumb on whole screen
Well, this is also another annoying issue for many iPhone X users. Because iPhone X comes with big screen as it have plus-sized and due to this only, Apple has included Reachability feature. This features works well- simply double click on Home button and the top screen will come down to bottom which makes it possible to access the device using thumb.
However iPhone X don’t have Home button so this feature works well. To enable it, go to Settings > General > Accessibility and after that toggle Reachability on.
Well, iPhone X is really an amazing phone that is loved by users and it has many new features. Though it may cost you little bit but the features it provides make it worth to buy. No matter whatever issue you come across with this new iPhone, but there are ways to deal with.
I hope whatever issues and solutions I have mentioned in this blog will help you to solve such annoyance whenever you get. Rather than all these, iPhone X is a much better device to use.
