    So when my phone sets on wifi all night at home then I leave the house for work in the morning my iphone XS will not connect to LTE. I have to turn it off then back on to get it to pick up a town. I have only noticed since the last update. Has anyone else had this issue?

    This happens throughout iOS 12 testing. After a night with only WiFi, toggle off airplane mode will get 1 bar and slowly recover signal or no service. If I toggle off airplane outside, it would instantly recover the signal. I've learned to just leave cellular on since the house has excellent coverage from the signal booster.

    Try to toggle on airplane mode and off instead of turning off the device might be easier.

    YES thank you that I’m not crazy!

    I’ve been tooling with this all day, triggering WiFi on and off at different times to see if cell data was lost.

    I’ve noticed that the bug sometimes happens after the phone swaps over to WiFi calling. Like right after that, I turn off WiFi, and bam data is gone. I’m stuck at 1-2 bars, then quick airplane mode and suddenly I’m back to 3 bars with data.

    This is on VZW. I’m really honestly wondering if the combo of the enabled eSIM, normal SIM, and WiFi calling is ****ing something up. Like the phone doesn’t know it’s supposed to swap back to the tower, I dunno. Could also be unrelated.

    I’m not experiencing this issue on a Max with 12.1

    After updating to 12.1 I checked for a carrier update and one was available. I’m on Sprint.

    If you want Apple to know about your issue and fix it as soon as possible, it would be best to contact Apple support so that they can gather logs and forward them to Apple Engineers. This helps Apple identify trends and issues so that they can action them as soon as possible. You contacting Apple helps the greater community, it helps Apple improve their products.

    This is not what I was looking forward to hearing about still.

    I experienced it today. No cell/4G connection at all on my Xr. Toggling airplane mode didn't do a thing. I had to turn the phone off and on again to get a connection:(.

    Btw I'm in The Hague in the Netherlands on T Mobile. Never had this on previous phones, like my previous 6s.

    I'm on T-Mobile and have never had this issue till the 12.1 update. Toggling airplane mode or wifi never works. The bad thing for me is it will say I have 1 or 2 bars but when you open anything that needs data it says "no internet connection". So it's definitely something with the phone software. Have to cut it off and back on every morning I leave the house.
