Battery is draining too fast

The iPhone X is a few years old and you can’t expect battery life to be what it was. That said, batteries that drain suspiciously quickly indicate a problem of some kind, so if you’re really suffering from poor battery backup time, it’s time to take a look at some solutions.

Possible solutions:

  • Update to the latest version of iOS. The operating system includes updates that allow the software to use power more efficiently, improving battery life. Ignoring this setting can have the opposite effect. It’s a good idea to update all your apps for similar reasons.
  • Restart your iPhone completely by holding down the power button and one volume button at the same time until it turns off. This can fix some buggy processes that may be draining battery life.
  • go to Setting, go to General and choose Background Refresh. Disable this option or disable as many apps as you can. This greatly reduces background activity and saves battery life.
  • Go to Settings, choose Battery and turn on Low Power Mode. This is also a good place to view the battery status, which contains very useful information for diagnosing a bad battery.

I get the message “This accessory is not optimized for this iPhone”

This can happen when you plug in a new or old accessory, and usually has a couple of specific causes that aren’t necessarily related to product compatibility.


  • Clean the port: Take a good look at the port on the bottom of your iPhone and make sure it’s completely clean. If there is a buildup of dust or dirt, use an isopropyl alcohol solution and something soft, like a cotton swab, to very gently clean it.
  • If this keeps happening, take your iPhone to the Apple Store for repair. There is probably some internal corrosion; this is especially likely if you recently got your iPhone X wet.

Slow performance and stutters

If you’ve owned the iPhone X since it launched in 2017, you’ve likely encountered more lags and slowdowns in performance over the years. This is nothing new with iPhones and cell phones in general, and you’re not alone. Users of the support forums Reddit and Manzana have screamed at the thought of stuttering, and their main culprit seems to be battery status.

Possible fixes:

  • When battery health falls below 80 percent, iOS automatically activates the maximum performance capability, which optimizes or reduces power consumption in exchange for longer battery life. You can disable this feature by going to Settings > Battery > Battery Status > Peak Performance Capability > Disable.
  • Replacing the entire battery can also improve performance and make your phone feel like new. This can be done on site apple website or at your local Apple Store.

Muffled sound/poor audio quality

The iPhone X speakers provide excellent audio quality, but are still susceptible to dirt and dust. In a recent thread on RedditUsers have complained that their iPhone X speakers sound muffled or can only be heard when switched to landscape mode. Although there is no definitive solution, here are some possible solutions that should produce positive results.

Possible fixes:

  • Before you mess with the speaker itself, make sure your audio settings are balanced by going to Settings> Accessibility> Audio/Visuals and dragging the stereo balance slider from left to right toward the center.
  • A dirty speaker can also be the culprit. It uses compressed air to remove loose dust particles inside the speaker. If you don’t have air, take an unused toothbrush and remove the excess material.
