When I plug in my XS Max it wakes up and starts charging as expected.

No such problem on my XS Max. Charging like always. No wi-fi problems either.

Go to Face ID and Password settings and set USB Accessories to ON. Problem solved! It’s a feature not a bug!

To prevent the USB Lightning port from being used as an attack vector by hackers, the port is disabled after a period of inactivity. Hence the charging is disabled. It is a feature of ios12. If you want to re-enable the port for always, then go to Face ID and password settings, and turn on USB accessories!

I don’t even see this as a problem that would affect me using y phone. 90% my iPhone is charging on a pad the other 10% cable. Why is it so hard for you to wake the device up then plug it in?

I’ve been experiencing this issue in iPhone SE and iPhone 5s for a very long time. This issue is not limited to only iPhone XS or newer models.

There is no issue. Their setting for USB Accessories in Face ID and Passcode. They have the setting to turn off accessories after an hour of no usage which in turn will stop the device from charging. You can alter this setting in Settings -Face ID and Passcode USB Accessories at the bottom.

I’ve got no issues with my XS but one of coops does, I suggested him to complain on the Apple forums as well as asking for support either via the app and/or twitter. I’d like to think this can be patched with an iOS update, hoping that the hotfix doesn’t break anything.

This guy loves to hear himself talk. Way too long a video. Yes a lot of people are having this issue but no, people don’t need to hear your whiny voice just because you love to hear yourself speak. Next time just get to the point and make a shorter video.

This report came just in the right time for me, I was going to pick one up next week, now I’ll wait because nobody knows if it’s a software or a hardware problem and for that amount of money I’m not taking the risk, I waited till now I can wait a little longer.

Probably the BEST run down on a alleged problem, I've ever seen! Great job in bringing this to light. BTW, no problem on my phone. I suggest you check to see if their is a relationship between the "batch" (serial number range) or origin of manufacturing plant. Again great job!!!
