Apple recently launched its new line up iPhones which consist of the new iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR. But now it seems that there are some major WiFi and Low Cell Signal issues on the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max models. Several users of the new iPhone XS and XS Max are reporting on both Twitter and Reddit about the poor WiFi and cell signal strength on their new iPhone XS and XS Max models and that’s sadly not confined to a single carrier too as reported by a Reddit user.

Some users on Twitter have reported that they had way better cell signal strength on their older iPhone 7 and iPhone X than the new iPhone XS and XS Max. A report from the wireless-technology blog WiWavelength also claimed that the new iPhone XS and XS Max RF power output test result wasn’t impressive on both the devices and the signal strength was significantly weaker than last year’s iPhone 8 and iPhone X devices.


Both iPhones were unable to even surpass the 200mW benchmark that is the standard target for such tests. Considering that the new iPhone models incorporate four antennas this time, the signal strength should be better than the older model of iPhones.

According to the blog post, the bad signal issue on the new model of iPhones might be because of the manner in which the four antennas are incorporated into the new iPhones. If this turns out to be true, the issue might not just be fixed with the software update, we think.
