It is not uncommon for iOS updates to go smoothly from the beginning. The latest version suffers from some dental problems.
iOS 15 has been available since September 20 and is causing problems for many users. TECHBOOK has collected the most serious iOS 15 bugs and explained how to fix them.
1. Battery failure caused by Spotify
Spotify has confirmed the existence of the application in a blog post iOS 14.8 And iOS 15 Battery life can cause error. Some users experience rapid battery discharge and overheating. Spotify seems to be constantly running in the background, thus gaining system power. The company is already working on an initial solution. However, it is not clear whether this will be an application update or a solution.
TECHBOOK, meanwhile, recommends turning off background updates for Spotify. You can find these options here Settings > Generally > Background update. Disable the slider on Spotify.
2. Error controlling AirPods on iOS 15
Since the update to iOS 15, Airbus owners have been experiencing a number of bugs. Many complain that Airbots Pro’s active noise-cancellation and transparency mode can no longer be controlled using Sri Voice commands. At the Airports forum on Reddit, users also report issues with wear and tear, and some even can’t connect airports to the iPhone. Bad sound and call issues and disconnection also seem to occur.
In the beta version of iOS 15.1, issues with at least ANC’s voice control and transparency mode will be resolved. Until the update comes, users will have to control these functions through the iPhone. It is not yet clear whether many of the bugs with iOS 15.1 will be fixed.
3. Cannot open with Apple Watch
After updating to iOS 15, users report having trouble unlocking the iPhone with the Apple Watch. Apple introduced this feature to avoid having to unlock Face ID while wearing the mask. The function is currently unavailable and in some cases the error message “Not connected to Apple Watch” will appear. Meanwhile, the company has released a support document advising that the process should be turned off until an update is available.
In the current beta 2 of iOS 15.1, bugs in the Apple Watch have already been fixed. However, it may take a few weeks to download. In the meantime, you can open it under “Apple Watch” Settings > Face ID & Code Deactivate.
4. The iPhone storage is full
In some cases, after updating to iOS 15, the iPhone displays a message that the memory is almost full – despite having enough free space. It looks like Apple will remove this message with iOS 15.1. In the meantime, users should ignore the error if they actually have enough storage space. You can do it under Settings > IPhone storage Check it out, at least some gigabytes should be free here.
5. Apple Maps has crashed
Apple Maps has got a big update with detailed 3D maps for some cities. If the application crashes, it may help to restart it. If that doesn’t help, you can completely restart the iPhone.
6. The iPhone 13 switches to camera macro mode
The iPhone 13 has an ultra-wide-angle camera with autofocus, which enables a macro mode. If the camera app detects an object very close in front of the lens, it automatically switches to the new mode. But Apple forgot to provide a button to turn off the function. The company is aware of the problem and has announced an update to add this option.
It is not uncommon to see various issues after an iOS version update. However, the steps for adjustment are often the same for common problems:
- Unable to connect Bluetooth devices: Ignore the respective device in the settings and then reconnect.
- Applications crashed: As a first step, close the application and restart. Check out the App Store update for iOS 15 in the App Store. In case of bad condition, remove and reinstall the application.
- The battery drains quickly: It may help to update applications here. In some cases, disabling the background function in the settings is a stop cap solution. Apple usually fixes battery issues in the next update.
