A new bug on the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max affects multi-port charging


iPhone 12 Pro Max

After the official release of the iPhone 12 series, the first set of reviews were excellent. However, as users continue to get these smartphones, it appears that all is not that excellent afterall. There have been several reports of issues regarding the iPhone 12 series. Initially, we had reports of disappearing signals on the iPhone but the company has since provided a solution. Subsequently, there were reports of missing messages and message notification on the iPhone 12. As of yesterday, there were multiple reports of the iPhone 12 screen turning green. This is preceded by complaints of a “yellow screen”. The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini only commenced sales a few days ago and there are already complaints.

For the iPhone 12 Mini, there seem to be problems with the lock screen touch sensitivity. However, for the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the reports are that the multi-port adapter does not work properly. According to reports, when using a multi-port adapter to charge the iPhone 12 Pro Max, if you plug and unplug other devices that are charging at the same time, the iPhone will stop charging.

In this regard, digital blogger @肥威 said that his own test confirms that this problem does exist. The report claims that as long as you redistribute the power, the iPhone 12 series will disconnect. Although the user reports are specifically for the iPhone 12 Pro Max, it seems to affect the entire series. 

To solve this problem, you can only try to use a separate charging head for iPhone 12. If you have to use a multi-port charger, you should also pay attention to plugging in and unplugging other devices and then plugging in and unplugging the iPhone 12 again. Fortunately, some charger manufacturers have stated that they are aware of this problem and new products will tackle it. However, nothing can be done about pre-existing devices.
