Is anyone else having an issue with wireless charging while on iOS 13? I've turned off the new slow charge feature and my iPhone X still will not charge beyond 80% on a wireless charger, regardless of how long I leave it on. It'll fully charge with a lightning cable, albeit very slowly. All my other devices on iOS 13 charge as they always have. My iPhone X is the only device I charge wirelessly.

Do you have optimized battery charging enabled? https://www.macrumors.com/2019/06/05/ios-13-optimized-battery-charging/

I thought that might be the problem, but even with it completely disabled my iPhone doesn't fully charge.
My XS Max will not charge at all since installing Beta 3, either wireless or via cable. I've submitted bug report to Apple. Anyone figure out how to resolve? I've tried the step listed here.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I restarted my iPhone X after turning off optimized battery charging and the problem seems to have corrected itself. I can't say that the restart was the answer but at least it's charging to 100% again.

Using the XS Max here and I pretty much just use wireless charging.
Having no issue charging to 100%.
Running PB2

I’ve had same problem, doing a full restart temporarily resolves the problem but it does reoccur for me

My XS max charged fine Thursday night but last night was on the wireless charger all night and did not charge at all. Tried via cable and it is working

I uninstalled OneDrive which was keeping my iPhone X battery draining. Thought the wireless charging pad was at fault originally.
No issue with iPad Mini 5 which is also on PB2.

Same.
Happened to me twice now, very annoying (iPhone XS)
Seems to only have been happening in b3 for me.
Hopefully b4 will fix.

Worked okay for me.

Wireless charging has always worked for me but the past 2 days it sits on the wireless charger all night with the charger light on on my pad and I wake up and battery is still bellow 20.

I made a post a few minutes ago for the same issues before realizing this post was here. When I went into the office this morning, my battery was already at 88% after charging overnight, so I placed my XS MAX on my wireless charger on my desk, and it shows its charging and even has the icon at the top right showing its charging but yet my battery is now down to 83% (So it seems like its not actually charging at all)

One night it was on the wireless charger overnight and did not charge at all so my phone was at 20% and wouldn't even charge once I plugged into actual hard wire Apple charger. Luckily this is not daily but I am not sure what the issue is, and I am glad to see its not just me and I am not going crazy.

Using iOS13 Public Beta on latest 3rd release.

I just rebooted the phone and it did start charging again.

I’m using the Developer Beta 4 I think it is and the issue is still there. I just got notice that Developer Beta 5 was released so I’m going to give it a try and see if wireless charging is fixed.

For the 1st time, I am experiencing the issues 2 days in a row where the battery charges overnight but when I get to work and put it back on a wireless charger, it shows both via the charger and phone screen that it is charging but it really isnt and the battery level continues to drop throughout the morning.

I then turn off the phone and turn it back on, and it starts charging again. Very odd.

Yesterday morning my XR only charged (overnight) to 80% as well... today it charged to 100%. Strange.

Looks like this "optimized battery charging" feature isn't working as intended right now. When I look at the charging diagram it never stopped at 80% and charged the last 20% later. The iPhone should know my sleep/charge pattern by now, I always put it on my wireless charger at about 10-11 pm and wake up at 6.

I updated to iOS13 Beta 4 last night, was hoping that would resolve it but still does it this morning, I still fully charge overnight but if I put the phone on the wireless charger when I get to work it does not charge. I just turned off the Optimized Battery option and it started charging.

Is anyone else having this issue on the final release of iOS13?

I've been using my iPhone Xs on a wireless charger for about 6 months, and never had issues charging. After updating to iOS13 the phone charges intermittently (charging then not charging at intervals of 1-2 seconds). I tried rebooting and that worked for the remainder of yesterday, now today I had the same issue. Disabled optimised battery charging but that didn't help, so put it back on again. Rebooted the phone again and now it is charging normally. Hope this gets resolved with iOS13.1.
