    Every order of dbrand includes 2 skins, one that covers just the back and another that covers the back and the sides. Warning though, the one that includes the sides is a challenge to install.

    Previously, I failed installing a Dbrand skin on my laptop (the back part) as it my was fault for being clumsy so I just re-ordered again. Never occurred to me that I can request a replacement for free, thanks haha.

    Thanks for the answers sirs. After the reboot I did yesterday, it didn't reoccur yet, wired or on speakers. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Curious thing though, my friend's XS didn't exhibit the issue, he's on iOS 12.0 and I'm on 12.1, so I reckon if it's an iOS issue?

    Mm....can’t be determined yet. Observe and if recurs, go to the nearest authorized service center and if they refuse to repair or replace, escalate your issue with Apple Singapore (regional).

    Really satisfied with the Baseus tempered glass (full coverage) and Baseus case. Kudos to Baseus UP Town for an excellent install

    ^I have yet to encounter this issue with my two XS Max's: one from the US and one from Globe...

    If it returns even after a reboot (a temporary fix, actually), then it's more of a phone problem already...

    there is an additional tip to enable/disable iOS dark mode quickly instead of manually accessing the settings menu via accessibility shortcut:

    Guys, do you leave the LTE on? Or you turn it off from time to time? In my case, it’s always on for imessage. Do you think battery life would greatly increase if I would selectively turn on LTE? Or would it be negligble that I just leave it on anyways?

    My 100% from 6:00am would be aroud 15% at 4:00pm. I feel like if I would selectively turn on my LTE, it would extend my battery’s life haha.

    LTE consumes more battery power than a thirsty Energizer Bunny...but no need to turn it off if your WiFi connection kicks in...I find that if both WF and LTE are on, battery life on the Max is still roughly 1 3/4 days long...

    Hi! I bought a XS in Switch earlier today. I have a backup of my current phone in iTunes, but it is in iOS 12.1.1. Can I use that backup to restore my XS, which is in stock iOS 12?

    The back up should be same version with the installed OS (or earlier) in the iPhone. Otherwise, it won’t restore or an error might occur during restore.

    The iPhone should be on the same iOS version as the back up. It won’t restore and you’ll get an error message that the iPhone needs to be updated before you can restore.

    On the flip side, if your iPhone is on the latest software and your back up was made on earlier iOS version, it will restore but some settings might not be restored
