The iPhone X, Apple’s top-of-the-range phone, is giving a lot to talk about. Even if the American company tries to convince us that it is the best device in the world, they are not as perfect as they paint it.
A few days ago we told you that the iPhone X does not exceed the camera of the Pixel 2. And today we want to tell you the problems that Apple is having because of the OLED screen of the iPhone X.
Watch out for iPhone X on the street this winter!
As Reddit experts have pointed out, the iPhone X display does not work when it is cold. According to these users, it doesn’t have to be extreme temperatures; it seems that failure occurs when the phone is exposed to temperatures between 2 degrees below zero and 5 degrees above zero. Temperatures that are reached in much of Spain and other countries around the world during autumn and winter.
As Reddit users have explained, when the iPhone X is exposed to these temperatures, the screen begins to give problems of all kinds: it doesn’t respond to touch, applications open with a lot of delay… A real chaos.
Some users have found a solution; just lock and unlock the phone. But it doesn’t always work.
What does Apple say?
As crazy as it may sound, the truth is that this problem is very real. So much so that even Apple has recognized it. The U. S. company has recognized the problem with OLED screens, and has assured that its technical team is working to fix it. It seems that it is simply necessary to update the firmware so that the OLED screens do not stop working because of the cold.
Apple explains that the iPhone X display doesn’t stop working because of the cold, but because of the sudden change in temperature. So, if we’re at home with 20 or 21 degrees and we went out on the street and 2 years ago, we might have trouble making our phone screen work.
As to why this problem, the U. S. company points out that it is derived from the ambient light sensor, or infrared camera. What do you think of all this? Did you have any problems with the iPhone X OLED camera?
