Iphone XR can’t keep up.

Just updated to IOS 17 and my XR can’t keep up anymore. Will be so sad to see it go, 5.5 years and I’m so attached to this phone but the battery life and speed can’t keep up and I need to ring, text people etc a lot faster than it lets me to. Iphone 15 arrives tomorrow, but man I’ll miss this phone and will be sad to see it go. 🥲

Rear microphone not working on iPhone XR

Hello, since a month ago, whenever I record a video both with the camera app and Whatsapp the microphone doesn't work. I can hear just a clicking sound but nothing else.

I discovered that both the camera and whatsapp use the rear microphone when recording videos, so that's the broken mic.

I solved the issue on the camera app by deactivating ''Record Stereo Sound" option on camera settings. unfortunately I can't do the same for Whatsapp.

Any idea on what's the problem and how to solve it? thx.

iOS version: 17.4.1

My XR screen is bugged WARNING flashing

So I just noticed today that the screen was a little more dim in the sun and as I tried to adjust it, half of the brightness wouldn’t work. I can’t tell if it’s the display itself that may be broken or my XR updating to the newest iOS. Anyone know what’s going on?

Do carriers accept XR trade ins?

I’m on AT&T and I want to upgrade to the 13,14 or 15. But I know it will cost me a lot of money. I noticed that AT&T has this iPhone 14 for 5$, but I’m sure there’s a catch. I’m 14 btw and I’ve also noticed that my phones battery goes down a lot and lags when using apps like TikTok and Snapchat.

I also told my mom about the 14 deal and she said there’s prob a catch and it’s going to be really expensive

Is it possible to have two sim cards on the sim tray while only one being in use?

So I have a trip upcoming and I have gotten a physical travel sim to use and I know XR does not support two physical sims but when i looked at the trey the downside of it seemed to have room to fit a card in it. So i thought what if I put my real sim there to like safekeep while i use the travel sim?

Does wallpaper pair delete in settings after deleting in Lock Screen?

Made too many wallpaper pairs and the only way to delete is through tap and hold on Lock Screen not settings.

Feels like my phone is starting to slow down

So I got my iPhone XR in July 2019, and it just now seems like it’s starting to slow down, like with response times to certain things, like typing or selecting something. Would it be worth it to upgrade to an iPhone 11 or should I go newer than that, 12-14(not interested in a 15, since it has the other style of charging port)? I don’t need the max or the pro style(because $$$).

Worth upgrading battery?

I’ve been close to pulling the trigger on a iPhone 15 plus, however, it’s close to £800 and I feel if I change my battery that’s currently sitting at 82% it’ll be a better choice. What do you guys think? Probably worth mentioning I got a third party screeb put in and it does cause issues sometimes. Thanks.

I have a launch XR, is it time for me to maybe replace?

Title self explanatory, I have now had my XR since it first was available (2018 I believe?). It has now gotten extremely laggy and buggy, to a frustrating degree. I really love the XR but I am thinking I might need to be upgrading soon. If it helps, my maximum battery capacity is 80%.

[DISC] iPhone XR Battery

Hey!

I wanted to ask others who are using an XR, what’s your idle (or overnight) battery drain like?

Also what’s ts your SoT.

I’m running iOS 17.5 and WiFi, Bluetooth, Background App Refresh and Location Services turned off and Low Power Mode and Airplane mode turned on for a total of 7 hours, give or take a few minutes I have an overnight drain of 13% (drained last night from 71 to 58 today morning)

My battery health is 94%

Note: If I constantly watch YouTube uninterrupted, in an hour I’ll lose 10% battery give or take a percent (for comparison of SoT when video streaming)

Will you risk installing the iOS 18 betas if it supports our phone?

WWDC is relatively close. Looks like iOS 18 will be a minor update just like 17. No UI redesign of any sort is coming. We will be stuck to the iOS 7 style for a good while still.

The AI related features will be cloud based…

Are you going to risk installing the free Dev beta 1 once that comes out in June 10?

Does your iPhone XR heat up even with minimal usage sometimes? For example, when using Instagram (watching reels) or when FaceTiming.

With light usage, such as texting or scrolling through reddit or pinterest my phone although stays constantly warm, the moment I use Instagram or even call or facetime for more than a handful of minutes, my device, near the back camera (lower portion) gets uncomfortably hot.

Im running ios17.4.1

If anyone has faced such issues, and even if youve not, any advice would be helpful

My battery health is 94%

Also, when playing clash of clans nth phone doesnt get as hot, only warm, same with youtube

Freezing and lagging

I’ve had my XR since August 2020. Lately it has been freezing and lagging when doom scrolling FB, Instagram and Reddit. BH is 84%. And I have been deleting apps that I don’t use/want.

Is there any fix (other than getting a new phone all together)?
