    For some reason, my iphone Xs max is not registering the charger. I have to usually pull to try plugging it in twice. Is anyone else having this issue?

    I have the same issue. Have to unplug and plug in twice sometimes. I have an amazon cable. I will need to try my apple cable still in the box.

    I use the Apple 29w brick with USB-C cable and haven't had any problems. Same goes for wireless charging. Didn't mess with the lousy 5w brick.

    I’ve seen the same with a 5w and 12w apple charger and one of the powered USB ports in my Lenovo port extender “dock” will not charge even with an apple cable - never had that issue with my 6s on that port.

    Me either. I feel tempted to take it back for a swap.

    I have the same problem. Plug it in while the screen is black and nothing. Unplug and and plug it back in and it works. Wireless charger works every time.

    I too am having this issue with my XS Max. Seems to be fussy getting the charger to register.

    This kind of stupid **** makes me wonder how they’re getting away with charging 1100+ dollars for these phones. I mean come on. How long has charging technology been around?

    You thought wrong, GadgetGirl. :p Best get your expectations in order. It's not like you just spent a lot of money on a new phone. :eek:

    Same issue here. I'm pretty sure its a handshaking issue that's kind of random. If you leave it plugged in it will eventually connect. Sometimes 20 seconds sometimes a min or 2. I doubts its hardware.

    "I have this weird issue with my Max where sometimes when I plug the charging cable in it take between 20 seconds to a minute before it detects and starts charging. It is very intermittent and is instant 99 percent of the time. When it doesn't detect the cable right away it will after a min or so. I've tried different Apple cables chargers etc, If is test it by unplugging the cable and plugging it back in 20 times its flawless. I try wiggling the cable and it does not break the connection at all. Its rock solid. I cleaned the port and its fine. The fact that its very intermittent and always start charging when it does happen without touching the phone or cable tells me it’s some sort of software issue."
