”Some iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max owners suffered from charging issues introduced by iOS 13.1.2,” he said.

A quick look at the ‘Apple’s user support social media platforms further reveals the extent of the problem and the number of people affected.

Capo said on Twitter, ”Doesn’t seem to be charging. Plugged in at 51% and it is now at 27%, all while being on the charger.”

”My phone won’t hold a charge longer than 30 minutes, even if I’m not using it, and there’s times where it won’t charge at all, it either says it’s not accessible or it says it’s charging but the charge is going down instead,” Breannon complained.
