Along with the announcement of the new iPhone 13 series, Apple launched the iOS 15 upgrade for iPhones. The new iOS 15 upgrade was first presented at the 2021 WWDC, and included noteworthy improvements such as a redesigned Safari browser, SharPlay, Focus Mode, Live Text, and more. New security and privacy improvements are also included in the iOS 15 release.
The update is available for all iPhone models released after 2015, including the iPhone 6s. While iOS 15 provides your ancient iPhone a new lease on life, the new software upgrade has a number of flaws. Here are the top 7 issues that iPhone users are having after installing iOS 15.
1. Message about incorrect storage
Soon after iOS 15 was released, Twitter and Apple Support Forums were inundated with consumer complaints, the most common of which revolved around the incorrect storage warning. Despite having enough free storage space, users report receiving the notification “iPhone Storage Almost Full” in Settings. The warning notice cannot be removed, and touching on it merely leads the user to the iPhone Storage section.
2. Storage tabulation error
A few consumers have claimed that the amount of storage available on their iPhones is occasionally greater than the device’s capacity. Users are also reporting that the device displays an incorrect tabulation of the space that programmes are taking.
3. Touchscreen that is unresponsive
Users seeking help from Apple Support for an unresponsive touchscreen have been trending on Twitter since last week. While some people are unable to use the entire screen, others are having problems with certain portions. This issue was also discovered in the iOS 15 beta version, which was still in development at the time.
4. Photos that vanish
A glitch in the iOS 15 Message app, according to many complaints, can destroy images that have already been saved. When users save a picture from a Message thread and then delete the thread, the stored image disappears after an iCloud backup, according to users.
5. Camera that is not working
Some users have reported that the Camera app’s viewfinder is broken. The software launches easily, but the viewfinder is frozen, and users are unable to select the required image, according to the complaints.
6. Siri commands that aren’t working
Siri, Apple’s voice assistant, was created to help people execute a variety of chores using voice commands, but according to a few customers, the assistant isn’t responding to a few important phrases like “Check my call history” and “Send an email.”
7. On iPhone 13 series, use the Apple Watch function to unlock
Face ID can’t authenticate with masks on, so Apple released this function in April to assist consumers unlock their iPhones when they’re wearing one. This feature is not available to Apple iPhone 13 series users. Despite the fact that it is unclear whether the bug affects iPhone or iOS 15, Apple has acknowledged the issue. The flaw has been fixed in the iOS 15.1 beta release, according to multiple developers.
