    iOS 16 Problems with Solutions

    The iOS 15 is known to be the most unstable iOS update of all time. We might get a similar unstable experience with iOS 16. We may encounter the following common problems.

    1. iOS 16 Rapid Battery Drain

    Battery drain has been an issue on iOS for a long time. Battery draining is caused by inefficient battery usage and a lack of optimization for Apps. This issue is not minor and could be a big problem for many users.

    iOS 15 faced a rapid battery-draining issue for a long time until Apple finally fixed it with iOS 15.4.1. So the battery draining issue on iOS 16 may not get resolved by Apple until Q4 2022. You can toggle some settings to control the battery drain to a certain extent. Recommend settings are to turn off Background App Refresh and Location Services as these are very power-hungry features. Also, enable the Low Power Mode

    2. iOS 16 App Crashing Issue

    Any new iOS version is designed to best work with the latest and updated applications, and iOS 16 is no exception. Hence many users might encounter app crashes where some apps crash at launch and others while in use. You can get rid of it by updating the outdated apps on your iPhone. If the app is already running on its latest version, you can try deleting and reinstalling it.

    3. iOS 16 Wi-Fi Not Working

    Wi-Fi issue has been a common problem for almost every new iOS version. We might see a Wi-Fi connectivity issue on iOS 16 too. This problem can be resolved in three different ways.

    • Try turning ON/OFF the Wi-Fi.
    • Forget the Wi-Fi network and reconnect. To do this, tap on the blue “i” icon on the right and tap on “Forget This Network”.
    • Reset network settings by navigating Settings >General >Transfer or Reset iPhone >Reset >Reset Network Settings.

      4. iOS 16 Touchscreen Unresponsiveness

      An unresponsive touchscreen is, by far, the worst nightmare for any smartphone user. And unfortunately, there is no permanent solution to this frustrating problem. But don’t worry; some solutions can fix the issue temporarily.

      As previously stated, update any outdated apps on your iPhone. If the problem persists, you can try to force restart your iPhone, which may fix the issue but only for a limited time. You can hard reset your iPhone using the following procedure:

      • On iPhone 8 or later: Press and quickly release the volume-up button. Do the same with the volume down button. Now press and hold the button and release it once the Apple logo appears.
      • On iPhone 7/7 Plus: Press and hold the volume down button and power button simultaneously and release them once the Apple logo appears.

        5. iOS 16 Bluetooth Not Working

        Like the Wi-Fi connectivity issue, the Bluetooth connectivity issue has also existed on almost every version of iOS. This issue should not be a surprise for iOS 16. Your iPhone may refuse to connect to other devices via Bluetooth. You may also encounter frequent Bluetooth disconnections. The problem can be resolved by:

        • Turning ON/OFF the Wi-Fi.
        • Forget the Wi-Fi network and reconnect. To do this, tap on the blue “i” icon on the right and tap on “Forget This Network”.
        • Reset network settings by navigating Settings >General >Transfer or Reset iPhone >Reset >Reset Network Settings.
