When Apple introduced the iOS 12, it was at the receiving end of the praises but not for long because after updating, users reported charging issues. And like a user-oriented company, Apple immediately dealt with the issue and rolled out an updated iOS 12.0.1.
Now this update has cured the charging problem but has brought a number of other issues as per the reports.
“Since upgrading, owners of both new and old iPhones are finding their phones either don’t make or receive calls. Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi and battery-related issues are again surfacing on an iOS generation which Apple has promoted as being all about efficiency, stability, and speed,” Forbes wrote on Friday.
Previous Problems and New Problems
The iPhone maker came with iOS 12.0.1 as an update to some minor problems reported by users on the iOS 12 update including device not charging with lightning cables, Bluetooth is unavailable sometimes, and video apps unable to display subtitles.
Apple reportedly addressed its users about the iMessage issues of delivering personal messages to multiple and wrong people since iOS 12 rollout.
“Apple has been telling users that iMessage accidentally sending messages to wrong people is actually a feature for iOS 12 and that it is happening because Apple is now organizing all contacts by Apple ID, so if family members or friends share an ID now all these messages are shared simultaneously with everyone who has that ID,” the Forbes report added.
Now there are new issues of call connectivity reported by a lot of users after iOS 12.0.1. Some of the users have reported Facetime issues too, stating that sending pictures and initiating FaceTime is not the same anymore.
Not only that, the company has been busy releasing updates for WatchOS 5 too in order to fix some charging and activity-related concerns reported by users.
A Major Leak About Repairing From Apple
In a related news, Apple has been working on something and few documents have leaked. While repairing your device for hardware issues, reports clear that Apple authorized service centers charge you hefty amounts. This naturally deviates many customers to some reliable and in-budget third-party service centers who do the same repair at lower charges. But Apple now has forbidden this by virtually paralyzing the device with unauthorized parts.
Two things that have assisted Apple in achieving this are 1) latest T2 chipset and 2) and the proprietary diagnostic software developed by Apple. These two help Apple to detect devices not repaired by the company-authorized centers.
These are latest leaked reports from Apple. Products like iMac Pro and MacBook have even got the T2 chips.
According to this leaked report, the unauthorized device will get a message stating “inoperative system” along with an “incomplete repair”.
The components included in this whole scenario are the logic board, display, Touch ID, battery, keyboard, speakers, and trackpad. While these all are for MacBook Pro, for iMac Pro only flash storage and logic boards are the components unauthorized for repair or replacement from third-party centers.
