Thousands of Apple iPhone users have reported a common issue with accessing 4G and 5G networks on their smartphones.
Tech enthusiasts who have already upgraded to the new iPhone 12 have reportedly noticed reception on their phone drops out for no reason.
“I drop service randomly in areas that should have the strongest signal (driving through a big city),” one person wrote of the issue on Apple’s support thread.
“I always had service in these areas with my iPhone XR. It’s very frustrating and I usually have to turn the phone off and back on to get it to recover the service.
“I did have an issue with my XR where it wouldn’t recover signal after losing it, but I was in a bad service area. This is way worse.”
The problem was also raised in posts to Reddit, Forbes reports.
iPhone 12 users across the globe, including in the US, Japan and the UAE have reported the issue.
Some people have found restarting their phone resolves the issue while others reported toggling airplane mode works to fix it.
Others have even swapped out their SIM cards to solve the problem.
Apple’s latest series of iPhones – which includes four new models – was only released last month.
