Well, iOS 10 is here. It is deemed another strong update from Apple with some seriously useful new features and refines a number of old favorites. Nevertheless, there are annoyances, glitches, bugs, notorious bricking issue and more that annoys users. You may also have bad experiences about iOS 10. Here are some examples and solutions to them.
1. Insensitive Fingerprint Sensor
From the announce of first iPhone, users has used to the feature called "Slide to Unlock". However, iOS 10 will abandon this feature and adopt a new method of unlocking device-press the Home button to unlock. Although Touch ID renders you convenience to unlock the phone, many users think that they are unaccustomed to it.
"It seems that the Home button is almost been damaged…."
"It makes me go nuts! As my phone sensor is not that sensitive as I think, it fails to recognize my fingerprints for 4 times. And I need to press the Home button for two times before entering the passcode."
"I described it as 'super annoying' and questioned why Apple thought this was a better option than the existing 'Slide to Unlock' function."
Go to fingerprint settings to input your fingerprint for several times. This will enable the fingerprint sensor to gets more and more sensitive.
2. Built-in Apps Cannot be Thoroughly Deleted
In iOS 10, you can delete built-in apps by long pressing the icon like deleting third-party ones. In fact, this can only delete the shortcut icon. The app is still in your phone.
iOS 10 system allows users to remove 23 original applications from the home screen of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Such apps include Calendar, Compass, Contacts, FaceTime, Maps and many others.
Actually, Apple does not recommend you to remove built-in applications. There are two reasons for this. First of all, Apple's built-in apps occupy little memory. Even if you delete 23 apps, you can save no more than 150MB memory. Secondary, after deleting such built-in applications, some features of iOS will be impacted. In order to undelete some preinstalled apps in their iPhone/iPad, many users spend lots of time in flashing ROM or unlocking the phone. However, mistaken deletion may lead the system into endless rebooting mode and make the system crashed. Many features fail to work after that. So before uninstalling these apps, think before you act. It is a pity that there is no solution yet.
3. Device Gets Overheated
According to numerous posts on social media and dedicated Apple forums, iOS 10 is making the device hot to touch as apps are updated in the background after first install.
Situation 1. When the phone is used to play iOS games, it is easy to get overheated.
Situation 2. When charging, the phone does not keep running hot. But it gets overheated only when charging begins.
Situation 3. When the iPhone is used to play music, it will run hot.
If the device is still hotter than a summer World Cup tournament held in Qatar, people should try a hard reset or turning off the auto-send of diagnostic and usage data, Trusted Reviews reported. If this fails, contact Apple Store for help.
4. Battery Consumes Fast
One user said that she went from 100% to 9% in five hours despite only casting a movie to TV. To be fair, streaming is a processor and connectivity intensive action. Another said that it went from 100% to 74% after texting for only 20 minutes. Some complains that after playing the phone for 15 minutes, it consumes 6% of the battery. And they need to charge the phone for two times per day.
1. Flash ROM.
2. Turn off Wi-Fi when you don't need it.
3. Turn off apps on the background by going to "Settings" > "General."
4. Check the Battery status by going to "Settings" > "Battery" and close apps that consumes battery greatly.
5. Lower the brightness of the display.
5. The iPhone Performs not Smoothly
After upgrading your phone, the device may perform not smoothly. Some complains that "IOS10 made my phone so slow and my messages keep crashing I already tweeted this but I'm still annoyed."
