Over the past few months, I have received numerous reports of bugs on iPhones. Problems with battery, announcements, performance, etc.
Interestingly, most of the time, users came to the conclusion that the error came from Apple itself. This is a bug in the iPhone’s operating system iOS.
This is not usually the case. In most cases, the errors may be due to applications or changes – or a bunch of changes.
The problem is, if you create a backup, delete your iPhone, and then restore that backup, you’re back to the problem.
This is something I already noticed on the computer 10 years ago: a user created his own backup, destroyed his computer, and then put his backup back on his computer. And, surprisingly, the problem was again. Sometimes users choose to mount their save game on another device, and the problem follows them with surprise.
The thing to remember is that the iPhone has been around for years. Some users usually switch from one iPhone to another and reset all their data and applications directly …
So, the best way to diagnose iPhone problem is as follows:
- To create Backup. Yes, it can be compromised, but you will need it anyway.
- Erase by resetting your iPhone Factory systems.
- Set up the iPhone as the new iPhone and check if the problem still exists. You may need to download and install the application, which may take some time, but you will find out if there is a problem with the hardware, iOS, application or changes.
You face one of these two situations:
- If the problem persists (for example, the iPhone drains its battery quickly), it could be due to hardware or iOS.
- If the problem goes away, it’s with your data. You will encounter a dilemma: continue with this issue or start over.
Make a clean wipe
If you decide to start anew, keep in mind that iCloud storage makes it easy. If you have data stored in the cloud, for example photos or videos, you can recover them. However, this is not so easy for everyone. But it will definitely solve your problem. If not, you can always go back and restore your backup.
Will it always work? No, but it may be the solution you are looking for. You are especially vulnerable to persistent bug that is not resolved by the constant iOS updates. In particular, it seems that this technique will work well for battery issues that have been around for a while.
So no, it’s not quick and easy, but it’s worth a try.
