    Ever since I’ve updated to 12.1.1, I’ve had problems turning my iPhone X back on. I normally switch it off at night, since I’ve updated to the latest iOS, when you press the power button it doesn’t turn on, you have to keep pressing it, hold the power button, eventually it starts up. Has anyone else got this problem?

    Started noticing the same thing on my X until I bought a XS Max. Seems Apple has reverted back to the original way of booting up the iPhone for the X/XS.

    That’s really messed up.

    But tbh I prefer having to hold it. That way I don’t accidentally turn the phone on.

    I agree and I feel the same way. That’s probably why they changed it back.

    Thanks for your reply’s, I guess apple changed it in software, as long as it’s not a bug with my phone.

    ironically if you use a case that inevitably would touch the power button each time you remove or put it on that can be a good feature so that you only have your phone turn on intentionally after you have shut it down to do those case changes

    That allegedly the new iPhones require only a press while the old iPhones require a hold

    Almost as if it’s like “you old iPhone cheapstakes have waste your life turning on your iPhone. If only u worked harder so you could upgrade you’d be on in a sinch”

    Lol

    My new MAX requires a long press to wake it from being shut down so your theory on how Apple is forcing people to the new devices is wrong. LOL!
