Currently, there are two types of users: those who’ve successfully updated to iOS 10 or failed to get the firmware on their iPhone or iPad.
I don’t blame you for that. It happens all the time. In fact, you can read our previous tutorial if you need help with the upgrade process.
This article will be devoted to troubleshooting the many issues that people have after updating to iOS 10.
Poor Battery Life
This isn’t unexpected.
Really! If you follow the news, Apple made a lot of changes to their new iOS 10. Some you might have seen during the beta periods.
But overall, newer design, more features, and the default settings will consume a lot of your iPhone battery.
Furthermore, this issue is also common, especially after a major update like this one. There are many solutions to this.
Here are some of our suggestions:
- Disable Background App Refresh (It’s in Settings > General)
- Enable Reduce Motion (Settings > General > Accessibility)
Last but not least, turn on Low Power Mode, also in the Settings app. With this mode turned on, you may get more power (up to 4 hours).
Touch ID Not Working
Security is the best thing to double check after updating to a major firmware like iOS 10. If you happen to notice that Touch ID stopped working, here’s a way to fix that.
Open the Settings app, go to Touch ID & Passcode. Under “Use Touch ID For:” turn off iPhone Unlock and Apple. Then, wait a few minutes and turn them back on.
If the problem still exists, remove dirt and oil from your finger(s) and the sensor, and try re-training your fingerprints.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Problems
It’s not obvious that Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth is causing issues on your iPhone after iOS 10 update. We also have a fix to this.
Go to the Settings page and turn both features off, then wait a few minutes, and turn them back on.
If that doesn’t help, use the Reset function and tap on Reset Network Settings. Hopefully, that will fire up your signal again.
Other Minor Stuff
Damn, if you are seriously experiencing a lot of problems in iOS 10, I would advise downgrading back to iOS 9.3.5. This might not be something you were waiting to hear. Plus, it’s better than using a broken firmware.
This option is time-sensitive, so you better do it now before Apple close their signing window. The company usually do this after a week, but who knows.
