Hi Pauly_Guy,

Congratulations on your iPhone X! I understand that you are having some issues with the camera and flashlight not working from the Notifications screen. You are also having intermittent issues with the app switcher. I can see how this would be of a concern. What I'd like for you to do is to make sure that you have a current backup of your device. The following article gives a refresher, if needed:

How to back up your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Then I'd like for you to reinstall the iOS. This article, If you can‘t update or restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch , goes over that information.

Let me know how it goes and thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Have a fantastic day!
