    Hi to everyone, I have an iPhone XS Max and I tried to play Fortnite on 60FPS. After 10 min FPS drop and lags. How is it possible? A12 Chip is weak?

    thermal throttling. mine does the same. turn quality settings to low but keep 3d graphics at 100% & keep FPS at 60. only play the game when the phone is at 100% and plug it in while playing. make sure your internet speed and ping are suitable as well. ping should be below 50 for fast performance. hope this helps

    So how is it possible that medium or low graphic setting manage 60FPS and on hight setting not manage? So A12 is not as strong as Apple presented?

    personally i play on high graphics and still get 60 fps. the A12 can definitely handle it, no doubt. thermals are the issue. the phone doesn't have fans like a computer so it can't cool itself efficiently. that's why to maximize performance keep brightness below 50 and battery percent at 100 and plugged in while playing to preserve battery capacity. if you play the game while the phone is at 70 or 80% and then plug it in while u play, it will get too hot trying to charge and won't charge and will drop frames.
