Common iOS 15 issues, bugs: How to fix
As soon as iOS 15 was officially released earlier this month, all hell broke out. While it’s common to expect unforeseen bugs with a new software release, few expected iOS 15 to be so unstable after extensive beta testing. Apple had to push out a modest update that largely focused on bug fixes after being alarmed by many persistent difficulties. The issues, however, are far from over. As a result, it seems like a good moment to discuss the most common iOS 15 issues and potential remedies. If your device is experiencing these issues as a result of the firmware update, the following suggestions may be helpful.
Common iOS 15 Issues and How to Fix Them
There are a few possible options that can assist in the resolution of typical iOS issues that arise from time to time. Let’s get down to work now, with that in mind!
1. Immediate Battery Drain
Rapid battery depletion is an issue that has plagued iOS for quite some time. So don’t be alarmed if your iPad/battery iPhone’s drains faster following the iOS 15 software update. Though a software problem is most likely to blame, other power-hungry features should not be overlooked.
This applies to features like Background App Refresh (Settings -> General -> Background App Refresh) and Location Services (Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services). To extend the life of your iPhone’s battery, we recommend turning off both of these capabilities completely or on a per-app basis.
Furthermore, given how problematic applications have always been, it would be prudent to update all of them and remove any that are old. Please keep in mind that we have published a comprehensive guide on how to resolve the iOS 15 battery depletion issue. So, if you want to take control of all the battery-draining features on your iPhone, be sure to read this tutorial to learn how to make your iPhone last longer between charges.
2. An issue with Spotify’s battery draining
A substantial number of iPhone users have recently reported experiencing an unexpected battery loss when using Spotify. The problem has become so widespread that Spotify has rushed to address the problem and acknowledged that it is looking into it. Because the Spotify battery depletion issue on iOS 15 appears to be caused by a software defect, the only way to fix it is to upgrade the app.
In the meantime, you might experiment with some simple solutions to the problem. To help address this, we’ve put together an in-depth troubleshooting tutorial on how to fix Spotify battery depletion on iPhone.
3. Apple Watch Feature Doesn’t Work to Unlock iPhone
While I am a firm believer in Face ID as the best standard for facial unlocking technology, it has become a burden and less convenient during the pandemic. Face ID’s inability to scan a masked face and unlock the iPhone is uncomfortable at a time when wearing a mask has become a necessity. Using a linked Apple Watch is now the only way to unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask (apart from the hit-or-miss hacks and the less useful passcode technique).
