The iPhone X has been experiencing a number of issues since its launch, a new problem that has been reported is incoming call display delay on iPhone X. Even updating to iOS 11.2.6 does not fix it. When there are incoming calls, users can hear their phone ringing but they don’t see the caller ID or tap the Accept or Decline buttons. The display can take up to 10 seconds to light up. Apple says it’s investigating this but yet still comes with a solution. Before Apple releases a new update to fix iPhone X(10) incoming calls delay issue, we are here with some possible solutions to relieve this problem.
