A considerable bunch of users have posted complaints online that their Apple iPhone X doesn't respond to touch or wake up in time to attend phone calls.

Apple is dealing with another iPhone bug. The bug has to do with the screen response times as there is a clear mismatch reported between the time an incoming call comes and the time it is taking for the screen to actually light up.

Further, some users have reported that the screen lights up only after a few seconds, by when the call gets missed and they are left with just a missed call notification. "Not only I can't answer the phone, I also can't see who is calling, but only after about 10 seconds", a user complained.

Apple's iPhone X seems to be affected by a software bug that is causing a delay in answering calls.

Apple last week also offered to replace a small percentage of iPhone 7 models with a failed component on the main logic board, which resulted in devices showing "No Service" in the status bar even when cellular coverage is available. Apple imports an estimated 90% of its devices.

Until then, the issue is the latest in a string of iPhone-related headaches for the company. These models include the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6.

Multiple reports have suggested that Apple has slashed production orders on the iPhone X, planning to make only 20 million units for the first quarter of 2018. Although, iPhone SE pricing stays intact since it is manufactured in India itself. It offered to fix the affected devices for free.
