iOS 14.3 Issues and Their Possible Fixes
Even though iOS 14 still seems to be quite new, Apple has rolled out the third major upgrade of the latest version of iOS. As expected iOS 14.3 features some cool add-ons including Fitness+, ProRAW support for iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, and the ability to launch App Clips apps by scanning App Clip codes.
Beyond notable features, iOS 14.3 has turned out to be a virtual nightmare for a handful of users as they are experiencing a number of annoying issues. Finding them quite rampant, we have decided to talk about iOS 14.3 issues and their possible fixes. So, be sure to check them out if the problems have sneaked into your device as well.
Some iPhone users who had recently updated to iOS 14.3 have reported that their device often disconnects from Wi-Fi automatically and they have to re-enter the Wi-Fi password to connect to the network. A few users have complained that many a time Wi-Fi just doesn’t seem to work properly even though other devices connected to the same network don’t have any issues.
While we have not experienced this issue on our iPhones running iOS 14.3, we would recommend you to reset the Network settings as it has often proved to be quite reliable in fixing Wi-Fi issues on iPhone and iPad.
Head over to Settings app > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. Now, enter your passcode and hit Reset All Settings again to confirm. After that, you will need to reconnect to the network. Do note that resetting network settings will mean that you will have to enter the passwords for previously saved networks, and reconfigure any VPN settings too.
Bluetooth Not Working for Some Users
Many iPhone users have reported that Bluetooth is not working on their device after updating to iOS 14.3. There are a couple of solutions we would recommend to fix this problem. First forget the Bluetooth device (tap on the “i” button and hit Forget this device) and then reset the Bluetooth accessory.
As each accessory has a different way of resetting, take the help of the user manual. So long as the problem is not related to some unknown bug, this trick should help you fix the issue.
Unexpected Battery Drain
Though battery drain issues are often triggered by several problems, you should never take your eyes away from the power-hungry features like location services and background app refresh.
Oh yes, outdated apps are also equally responsible for the unexpected battery drain issues. Therefore, you should either wipe them out or update the apps so that they can no longer eat into a large chunk of the battery.
- Head into Settings app > Privacy > Location Services. Now, either completely turn off Location Service or choose to use it wisely so that it doesn’t eat into a ton of battery on your device.
- Launch Settings app > General > Background App Refresh > Background App Refresh. Now, choose Off.
Personal Hotspot Issues
As Personal Hotspot has been one of the most common problems on iOS, we aren’t surprised to see it on iOS 14.3 as well. But guess what? You shouldn’t lose heart as resetting the network settings and updating carrier settings have always been pretty reliable solutions for it.
- Go to Settings app > General > About. Now, if there is any carrier settings update, you will get the notification to update it.
- If that doesn’t sort out the issue, navigate to Settings app > General > Reset and then reset the Network settings as explained earlier as well.
Sluggishness and App Crashing
Last but not the least, sluggishness and app crashing seem to be quite prevalent on iPhones running iOS 14.3. To get rid of these, we would suggest you clean up your iPhone and update all the apps.
Besides, if you no longer use some apps, be sure to delete them. Also, do not spare the outdated apps which haven’t got the update for a while as chances are pretty high that they might be making life really difficult for your iPhone.
Navigate to the App Store and tap on your profile. Now, hit Update All to update all the apps on your device.
Also ensure you have enough storage on the device. If your iPhone or iPad is running low on storage that can cause it to slow down considerably as well.
Even though Apple keeps improving iOS by fixing a ton of bugs, adding new features, and enhancing performance, some issues never seem to go away. But do not worry as this is where a reliable iPhone repair centre like Rapid Repair has a role to play.
