In one of our previous articles, we had discussed about the three problems in the iOS7. Here are some other problems you may encounter with the OS. Let’s have a look at them and their potential solutions.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi not working
Many people have noticed the failure of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi functions not working as they should be. This has happened after the update to the iOS. What happened with the functions was, they either papered to have been greyed out, or just won’t toggle to get in the ‘on’ position. At times, the functions would get active and get back to ‘off’ on its own.
Interesting or strange it may sound, but the apostrophe in the phone’s name is a potential culprit at times. By removing the apostrophe in the phone’s name, you are likely to get rid of this problem, which may be something like “Robert’s Phone”. To fix this,
- Go to Settings => General => About => Name.
- Change the name of the phone to something that will be without the apostrophe. e.g. “Robert’s Phone” will then look like ““Roberts Phone”. This should help you out.
- Setting the phone to Airplane mode sometimes can solve the problem, though it is likely that it may be back to frustrate you.
- To do this, go to Settings => General => Reset => Reset Network Settings.
- If the problem persists, you can back up the phone and restore it. For this, you may need to know how to restore factory settings in an iPhone.
- Do not forget to crosscheck that the firmware is new and up to date.
- If nothing seems to work, visiting the Apple store should be your final alternative.
The iPhone freezes after the update
People have reported of the iPhone freezing after the update. The iPhone freezes randomly. And moreover, this does not look to be limited to a certain iPhone model.
- Hold the Home Button along with the Sleep/Wake button. Keep holding the combination of buttons until the Apple logo is visible.
- If that doesn’t work, backup and restore your device.
- Either of the two solutions should do the work for you.
One of the commonly found glitches is the number of unread emails. This problem has been mainly found with the Gmail users after updating the iOS 7. However, there are other email accounts that can experience the same.
- To sort this out, you will need a computer with internet connection.
- Open your Gmail account on your computer and select “Mark as Read”. Go back to your Gmail account on your iPhone and here you should see the number to have fallen considerably.
- If you do not have a computer, you can work only with your iPhone. However, it will be a very lengthy process as you will have to download the mails on your phone to start off.
- Select Edit => Mark All => Mark as Read.
