Most Common iOS 12 Problems With Quick Solutions!
Every Apple upgrade looks essential on paper and so did the iOS 12. The Apple iOS 12 fixed some earlier issues but users still find a number of problems post iOS 12 upgrades.
Problems such as overheating, display, and App crashes are just some of the many issues that an iOS 12 upgrade brings with it.
Taking your iPhone to a service center might just burn a hole in your pocket and you can’t always depend on local iPhone service centre with their services. So here’s a list of the most common iOS 12 problems and ways in which you can fix them by yourself within minutes.
1. iMessage Split Thread Issue:
Millions of iPhone users who’ve upgraded to iOS 12 have found iMessage causing problems on their Apple devices.
It merges threads of different contacts. This means that your messages are sent unintentionally to others, thereby invading your privacy and consent. This gets awkward in more than one way.
The potential reason could be because of a faulty iOS update or a third-party app installation or another Apple app installation that will interfere with the iOS 12 functioning.
Here’s how you can fix it:
– Turn your iMessage OFF and then turn it ON after a while.
– Sign out and Sign in again in iMessage
– Check for a ‘message not delivered’ symbol and check your network connection
– Check if the ‘Send & Receive’ is ON in your message settings.
– Check if you’ve signed in with your Apple ID.
2. iOS update failure:
Here’s how you can fix it:
Have adequate free storage in your apple device, back-up your phone, ensure that your device is fully charged and is connected to a strong Wi-Fi network.
3. Passcode post iOS 12 installation:
You never had a 6-digit passcode for your iPhone and now you are unable to get past the passcode screen. What to do now?
Try entering 123456 and it should let you in. You might have to reset your passcode once you access your device.
4. Missing Apps post iOS 12 update
You might find that some apps aren’t showing up after an iOS 12 update on your device. Try looking into your folders for the apps.
Some apps may no longer be compatible with iOS 12 update, so you need to check their availability in App Store after the upgrade. You can also try a Force Restart or simply restart your device after the update process is complete.
5. Safari Issues with iOS 12
Safari is a common browser among Apple users. However, after iOS 12 upgrade, some users came across page load issues. You need to disable Experimental Features under the Advanced section in Safari.
In addition, ensure that the swap navigation is OFF. You can also change the orientation of your iPhone/iPad to landscape mode.
If you notice a 403 error, then you can switch to Wi-Fi or switch off the cellular connection.
If you are unable to find Private Browsing, disappearing synced bookmarks etc., then try iCloud for Safari. Disable it, wait for a few minutes and then re-enable it.
6. Visual Voicemail Issues
It is one of the recurring errors that show up with every iOS release. This could be because of a ‘carrier software update’ . You can update your voicemail password with the help of your’ carrier’. This normally happens due to a poor carrier signal, try once you have full signals and it should work.

7. Bluetooth and GPS
GPS sync with third-party apps:
Close all the apps on your phone that use GPS. Then open Apple Maps > Type an address, wait for 10 mins and launch a third-party app to see if it detects the location correctly.
You can alternatively try to entirely disable the DND function (Do Not Disturb) on your iPhone. Your GPS will work completely fine.
If the issue still persists, you can reset your network settings on your iPhone. Go to Settings > General > Reset Network Settings or can also try to restore iOS using iTunes to deal with GPS related issues.
