Apple started shipping its next-generation iPhone 12 Pro Max earlier this week. Now, less than a week since the shipping commenced, reports about issues with the phone’s multi-port charging technology have started surfacing on the internet.

GizChina quoting a report by a digital blogger who goes by the name Fertile on Weibo, some users are facing issues while using a multi-port adapter for charging their iPhone 12 Pro Max smartphones. The report says that if users plug and unplug other devices that are charging alongside the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the phone stops charging.

The blogger via his own tests confirmed that this issue does exist with the top variant of the newly launched iPhone 12 series. The blogger says that the issue persists as long as the power is being redistributed.
