Be it new software or OS, it has got its shares of problems. The same was experienced with the iOS7. There are many new iOS 7 users who have successfully updated their OSes and are doing fine. However, there isn’t any dearth of people who are still facing problems and having glitches.
Swiftly draining battery
The (swift) draining battery is a problem many users normally face. Though this is not a major problem, you need to look into this seriously as you need longer battery life. There are a number of reasons why the battery of your device may drain rapidly. However, you may consider these iPhone fixes and could potentially come in handy.
- Turn off AirDrop. To do this swipe upwards from the bottom of the display.
- Then select toggle in the Control Center.
- Toggle off the unwanted apps.
- Navigate to Setting => Notification Center to do this.
- Turn off refresh feature for the background apps.
- You should be easily able to do this for those apps that you do not need.
- For this, go to Settings => General => Background App Refresh.
The crashing iTunes Store
The problem of iTunes Store crashing isn’t new. It keeps showing up whenever one tries to open it. There are two options to find a solution to this.
- Double tap on the Home button, which will open before you the multitasking menu.
- Here, put up the shutters on the iTunes Store in case you see it in the list.
- Move to Settings => iTunes & App Store.
- Click your Apple ID and sign out.
- Sign in once again and this should help you.
- Another way out is, opening the Music app and tapping Store.
- After this, the new app should work, though it may not be a smooth sailing.
Trapped on Apple’s logo
The problem can mostly occur if your update goes wrong. You may see a screen where there is a black background with Apple logo to the fore. To solve this problem, you will need a computer to help you out. You need to connect to iTunes and seek to the Device Firmware Upgrade (DFU) mode.
- Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and turn the phone off.
- From your computer, open iTunes and connect it to your iPone.
- Now in combination, hold the Sleep/Wake and Home button for at least 10 seconds releasing the Sleep/Wake first.
- However, keep the Home button pressed as long as you see a message on pop-up on iTunes that reads “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.”
- This is when you should see that the phone screen is blank.
- Seeing a message or a logo means you aren’t on the DFU mode.
- From the left column of iTunes, select your iPhone => Summery => Restore.
- Just keep in mind that you might need to install the OS again.
We will be coming up with more fixes like these to iOS7. Keep watching!
