Below we are going to introduce the most 10 common problems that iPhone X users have and attempt to explain how to deal with them in easy steps.
#1. Problems with Updating Data on iCloud
An iPhone X automatically updates the data on iCloud so you have a round the clock access even when the device doesn't work. An advantage of this is that it saves the space in your phone's memory. However, sometimes the phone will fail to perform this function. In such a situation you will usually need to restart the system.
One of the options is to press the Volume Up button, then follow it by pressing the Volume Down button and finally finish the process by holding the side button for a few seconds. The outcome should be an Apple Logo that appears on the screen which means the system is being rebooted. Upon finishing this, you can try out updating on iCloud again.
#2. Problems with Data Retrieval from iCloud
Sometimes you will need some old documents from iCloud. You probably stored them there long time ago so that you make some room for the files. There might be an occasion when you will not be able to download them. The following is what you should do.
Some of the usual options is to create local backup on your PC or to go the iCloud.com and get your valuable files back (don't postpone this too much as the data is stored there for just 30 days).
Another smart choice is to use Joyoshare iPhone Data recovery, a software that can retrieve over 20 kinds of files you might have accidentally deleted, unknowingly lost, carelessly broken, etc. with 3 smart recovery modes.
