The new iOS 12 has reached each and every corner. Even though the new operating system was launched to deal with the issues of older version, it has its own share of issues that the users are frustrated with. With every new version of iOS 12 comes some fixes to assist you give relief. But, where one issue gets solved, a new issue stands waiting for your every time, making it unbearable for the users.
Even though users with older version of iOS are suggested to upgrade to the newer version, iOS 12 has its own share that prevents the users from updating. Every new version of iOS 12 solves the issues that were present in the older iteration as well as has its own new bugs. Moreover, users get insight of the new bugs if they are registered to the beta program, which is at the version 3.
And since the issues that are faced by the users are caused due to the new iOS, the solutions to these issues are rare. This leaves nothing but helpless. And hence, we are here today to assist you with some of the annoying bugs and help you solve them once and for all.
Cellular And Wi-Fi Connectivity Problems
Connectivity is the need of today’s generation. And one of the bugs that come with the new iOS 12 is cellular and connectivity issues. Users claimed that they were facing such issue in iOS 12.1.1. They claimed that while facing this issue you get detached from the cellular data completely or partially. This depends on the location or country you belong to. Using Wi-Fi connectivity was the only way for users to deal with this issue.
But with the latest iOS version, it is still vague if Apple has solved this issue or not. The solution to this issue is not guaranteed. Some users have recommended to reset the network settings. This can be done by going to Settings and clicking General. Next, you need to go to Reset and tap Reset Network Settings. This will not erase any data. Rather, it will erase all the settings and preferences related to the network (such as Wi-Fi password). And as mentioned earlier, the solution is not guaranteed.
Unable To Import iCloud Backups
A rare issue for users using iPads emerged when they claimed that they did not receive the latest iOS update. Hence, a lot of users using both iPhone and iPad were having iPhone with newer version than iPad. Users also reported that the process of setting up new iPad from an iCloud backup would not work.
The only solution to this issue was found, but with a price. Unless you do not have an iPad running with the latest iOS, it is recommended to install a new beta version with a $99 Apple Developer profile.
Issue With eSIM On iPhone XS, XR, And XS Max
If you are one of the users who faced issues while activating eSIMs on your iPhone XS, XR, and XS Max, here is a good news. The new iOS 12 update has a solution. Apple did not detailed much about the fix in the notes section during the roll out. But it might help to fix eSIM problem that users were facing.
iMessage Going To The Wrong Person
One more odd issue that users reported was after upgrading to new iOS 12, their iMessages were being sent to the wrong individuals. The reason for this bug is usage of same Apple ID by multiple people. If so is the case, all you need to do is switch to Family Sharing, which generates separate calendars, contacts, notifications, and much more.
One of the users recommended a bit more laborious. People having the same Apple ID should go into each of iMessage settings on their device and detach it from their Apple ID. Make certain they only have emails or phone numbers in the Contacts for whomever else is employing the similar Apple ID. This is a bit tricky job.
It seems that a few people are even stating that they are facing the problem even without the overlap of Apple ID. For this, all you can do is hope for Apple to roll out a fix in the next version of iOS 12.
Your iPhone XS Won’t Charge
Some of the users also reported that their iPhone XS Max and XS are not charging properly. A provisional solution to this issue is to make certain you connect your handset when it is lit and hear the connecting sound and see the animation for charging.
This is possibly a small issue that can be solved with a minor update. But Apple still needs to address it and we are sure that it will not be rolling out a new version for this fix alone. Hence, you need to hang around a bit for the official solution.
Faded Screens On iPhone X
Some iPhone X users have reported that after updating to new iOS 12, the colors on their display look “washed out” or faded. While this has not been experienced all over the world, it is not clear as to why users are facing this issue. For time being, some users have suggested to turn off the setting for Increase Contrast. This setting appears to be turned on in iOS 12 by default.
More Battery Drain
One of the most touted features in the iOS 12 was enhanced battery performance for older devices. On the other hand, users are claiming that after the update, the batteries of their device are draining unusually quickly.
To begin with, check health of your device battery to make sure that is not causing the issue. If the maximum capacity is less than 85%, it is time for a new battery to install. Next, if it is not the battery health issue, this might be an old issue seen in earlier version of iOS where the internal structure provisionally taxes iOS devices and drains the power quicker.
The solution to this issue is to reset the iPhone to factory settings and cleanly update to the latest iOS 12. Next, restore it from earlier backup. If this does not work, you can factory reset the device, install the new iOS 12. But do not restore using a back. Rather, install each app manually. If the issue still persists, all you can do is wait for Apple to roll out the fix.
Apps Not Working Properly
You may find that after upgrading to new iOS 12, some applications do not operate as they used to earlier. That is fine since they are shifting to a whole new environment. Besides, apps do launch a new version for themselves after a software update every time a new iOS version is released. All you need to do is go to App Store and see if there is updated iteration of the app in question.
Hotspot Won’t Turn Off
This may be a rare issue, but most of the users claim it to be present. When directly connecting a laptop to an iPhone 6S, it automatically reconnected. It remained intact even after closing the Personal Hotspot setting of the phone. This can be a defective setting from the carrier end or it might only happen in older models.
Now that you have had the solutions for most of the problems occurring in new iOS, we are sure you will be relieved to use your iPhone. Do let us know if this article was helpful or not by commenting below.
