    I still don't get why new emojis are always considered such a big update

    Cnet, you need to step up your game. Your news come out pretty late. I've heard about these 3 days ago.

    The LTE and WiFi signals on my iPhone Xs Max loses its strength quite often. The LTE either drops to 4G or totally loses its signal on AT&T network. And the WiFi signal is either slow or stops working. A little bit frustrating.

    If you keep your iPhone screen as dim as possible it might be close to being as good as the iPhone 7 the iPhone X XS and XS Max battery life is terrible dimming the screen is the only way I get any battery life so what’s the use having these really nice display if you have to keep the dim?

    FaceID is a favorite for the NSA; making it MUCH easier to control the population.

    Given Apple's history/record of very reliable, if not conservative battery estimates, why is this a big deal?

    There was never any evidence the iPhone 6 was ‘bending in people’s pants’. But cnet still reports it.

    If we talking about “gate” what about explodegate, bloatgate, slowgate, let’s see the videos on that. And most of these things still plague the android OS to this day its the staple of android.

    Forget those idiot Emojis its the charging issue that is of concern. We the consumer need Apple to admit there is an issue and simply state they have a fix on the way and for many Apple XS owners that is enough

    Why nothing about the major cellular reception issues ? 100 page thread on macrumors talking about it and apple is nuking post on the subject. This is a hardware issue and will not be fixed by a software update ! This is worse than the Iphone 4

    Unless I plug my iPad Pro into its own charger, it only charges to 95% on a normal Apple charger, after a restart it jumps to 98%
