The iPhone XS Max often restarts, sometimes in an endless loop.

The iPhone XS Max often restarts, sometimes in an endless loop.

My phone frequently restarts, for instance, it suddenly restarts while I'm using it. After the restart, the battery level is at 10%. This 10% lasts a long time, even though it's based on the charge level after reboot. Sometimes, the restart results in a normal battery level, while other times it's at 10%, and this 10% remains constant. Below is my restart analysis report, hoping someone can provide an explanation.

Here's the restart analysis report for reference:

Previous usage scenarios:

Even with the original battery, I experienced similar issues with high restart frequency. It would restart automatically after being fully charged, and the battery level would still be around 20%. This 20% would last quite a while. I suspected it was a battery problem, so I replaced both the battery and cells. However, after replacement, screen responsiveness issues emerged. The screen didn't respond to touch, and upon inspection, it was identified as a motherboard problem. The motherboard was repaired, and the screen works fine now. However, the frequent restarting problem persists. Initially, a repair technician thought it could be related to the battery cells, so a new battery was installed, but the issue remained. The technician further examined it but couldn't pinpoint the exact cause, as there's no consistent pattern to the restart intervals.

I would be interested to see the panic log you linked to, but the link doesn't work for me. You can upload the .txt doc right into your post, or copy-paste.

I added in the first big of the panic log that I grabbed from your other post since that link did work.

This is still definitely in battery territory. It references the BMS (Battery Management System) multiple times and based on your description, I would wager the device is not getting good "gas gauge" data. That is to say, the information that tells the phone how charged the battery is is missing, or garbled. There could be some issues with the battery connector, or some of the components around the connector which assist in relaying this data to the CPU (the SMC specifically, as is mentioned here in the panic).

Some images of what the board looks like in the area of the battery connector would be helpful,

First of all, thank you very much for your patience!

Yes, you guessed it right, my battery level was inaccurate.

However, I also tried to replace the whole battery before, but the problem still exists, so I think it should be ruled out because of the battery?

But at present, I have no alternative to solve my problem.


Thanks a lot for your answer.

In your reply I see that you indicate that there may be some issues with the battery's connector or around the connector.

If I understand it as the circuit board of the battery or some components around the circuit board, then I took it to the maintenance master to check the circuit board, but the maintenance master told me that there was no problem with the circuit board.

The suggestion of the maintenance master, let me try to replace the chip.


Because my mobile phone restarts irregularly, the only regular time is when charging at night, when I wake up in the morning, when I check the analysis log, the phone restarts many times, and the interval is about 1-2 times every few minutes. .

When I unplug my phone from the charger, it restarts erratically. Sometimes it restarts continuously, sometimes it takes 5-6 hours to restart.


My interpretation here is that I'm thinking there's a problem with the I2C bus used for communicating with the battery.

I pulled some schematics of the iPhone XS Max, and the BMS communicates over I2C0_SMC. That signal goes to a chip labelled USB-PD and another one labelled Yangtze Charger. It looks like there's a level shifter circuit right next to the battery and of course caps and resistors in the line.

Although I have reference designators for those components, I don't have a board file that shows me where they're physically located, at least not yet.

However, the other thing of interest is that those signals appear to go through the interposer, meaning they're transferring from the top board to the bottom board (or vice versa). So in addition to the possibility of a missing or damaged component, there's also the chance that the interposer has flexed and broken some pads. That, of course, will take expert-level microsoldering repair, unfortunately if that's the problem.


@dadibrokeit That sounds very much like I would expect. I can look up locations if need be. But the XS Max board is extra weird. There is a small section of the board around the SIM tray that goes to only one level of board and then another small section at the bottom that's sandwich board again. I feel like all the charging components are in that segment.

@ownstupid I would definitely be looking into Yangtze if that wasn't the chip that was already recommended to replace (assuming you replaced it).
