XS Max – Unusual Behavior
iPhone XS Max running 12.3.1
Bear with me here… Out of the blue none of my apps would open. I opened iMessage, Calendar, Gmail, etc. and they would all give me a white screen so I decided to restart my phone. A few minutes go by and it gets stuck on the Apple logo. I force restart and it sits on the logo for 10 minutes. I plug it into the my laptop to see if I can recover it, but iTunes doesn’t recognize the phone and Photos throws another error…
I restart one more time and it finally boots; however, my Apple ID is no longer connected and I am unable to access the Internet via WiFi or cellular network. I reboot again, it boots up to the home screen, my Apple ID is back, but still no internet access. I put it down for 5 minutes, come back, and I suddenly I can access the internet, iMessage is functioning, and all appears well.
Anyone else run into this or have similar symptoms? I can’t explain why this would suddenly happen when it was functioning normally all day.
