that prevents charging
Some iPhone XS and XS Max phones do not want to charge in certain situations. The problem only seems to occur when the charging cable is used. The devices will not automatically start charging, but will not start until after the screen is turned on.

Due to the fact that the phone only starts charging when the screen is turned on, it appears that it is a software error in the phone’s sleep settings. These seem to unfairly put the process that deals with plugging into non-active. A fairly extensive test of YouTube channel Unbox Therapy gives an idea of ​​how often the problem occurs and in what forms. In some cases, the screen can not be switched on with the power button after connecting, but only with a tap on the screen.

There are also many reports of the problem on Reddit and the Apple forum . However, there are also reports of older iPhones and an iPad Pro that show the same behavior. This suggests that this is a software error that crept into the iOS 12 update a little two weeks ago. Wireless charging would go without any problems. Apple has not yet responded to the reports.
