iPhone XS Max experiencing cellular data connectivity issues.

You wouldn’t expect a $1200 handset to provide lower LTE download and upload speeds when compared to its predecessors wouldn’t you? Neither did we, but our own tests and several reports from our readers, as well as those from many other iPhone XS Max users from around the world, confirm that the most expensive iPhone ever has a serious problem when it comes to cellular data connectivity. Not all, but a significant amount of owners complain that they can’t browse the Internet when a WiFi isn’t in range and that overall cellular reception has diminished when compared to older iPhone models.

Apple hasn’t tackled this issue yet, so we still aren’t aware if the iPhone XS Max is dealing with an antenna-gate, or if the issue can be corrected with the help of a software update.
