    Hey. Recently I got an iPhone X and it shipped with 12.1.2. Coming from an iOS 11 device, the screen on usage time is very different. From what I can tell, it’s meant to reset itself everyday? So today at 8am, it said my screen on usage time was 6 hours. Then I charged up my device and it went down to 5 hours then 4 and at the moment, I am getting a usage time of under 4 hours but I haven’t been using it that long since the last charge? Is this a glitch or something? Help me to understand it. [​IMG]

    I thought your iPhone was meant to reset the screen on time after each full charge? This hasn’t seem to do that... I am confused.

    No, does not reset after a full charge, keeps reporting last 24 hours of usage statistics.

    Ah, that makes sense. Is there an app or anything that can tell me the usage after a full charge? Like the old iOS 11. Or is this the new default? If you get what I mean...

    It's the new default.

    Otherwise, need to tap appropriate bars and do the math one's self.
