 iPhone XR by Apple — released in 2018 — has been encountering problems in the UK along with the O2 network and the iPhone maker has publicly acknowledged the problem, the media reported.

Apple and O2 have confirmed that one of the most popular iPhones is not working as it should on O2’s network.

The iPhone XR completely lost signal several times a day, some O2 customers said on Twitter, BBC reported on Tuesday.

The problems experienced by several iPhone XR owners are severe, affecting calls, texts and data usage.

They have also struggled to get a reliable 4G internet connection, making apps such as Facebook and Instagram redundant unless there is wi-fi.

“We’re working closely with our partners to resolve an intermittent issue affecting some of our customers using iPhone XR,” an O2 spokeswoman was quoted as saying by the BBC.

According to the mobile carrier O2 — an IT fix 101 (turning the phone off and on again) provides a temporary fix, but it isn’t clear how long that lasts before the iPhone XR connectivity problems reoccur.

There is a latest development in science and technology that the low cost successor to iPhone SE is getting into mass production next month and Apple could release it in March.

Apple is reportedly ready to return to the low-cost phone market after an absence of four years, CNET reported on Tuesday.

The handset — believed to be comparable in size to the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 from 2017 — would be Apple’s first low-cost smartphone since 2016’s $399 iPhone SE.

It is pertinent to note that the iPhone SE was one of company’s most successful mobile devices in the past half-decade because of a combination of reasons.

Price was a factor but it also offered long-time iPhone fans a reprieve from all the design changes that Apple was doing.

Planning for the new handset was reported in September by Japanese news outlet Nikkei Asian Review.

The phone will share most components with the current line up of iPhones and use a cheaper LCD display to keep the cost low, according to the Japanese paper, the CNET report added. (IANS)
