iOS 15.2 Bugs & Issues 

  1. After installing iOS 15.2, many users worldwide are complaining about the WhatsApp crashing issue. According to many users on Twitter, WhatsApp automatically crashes on iPhones, and users cannot send or receive any new messages. Even many users with iOS 15.1 are also stuck in the WhatsApp loop. There is a confirmed fix from Apple or WhatsApp, but you should keep your eyes on the new WhatsApp update as we can expect the new minor WhatsApp update to fix the issue on the new iOS 15.2.
  2. Many users also reported the notification clearing issue after iOS 15.2. According to one Reddit user, while clearing notification, the device brings the clock to the center of the notification center. 
  3. With iOS 15.2, dozens of users also reported the battery draining issue after iOS 15.2 update. 
  4. Annoying volume bugs on iPhone after iOS 15.2. One user wrote that he heard an infamous volume bug while talking on the phone.
  5. There is also a black screen issue on iPhone 13 with iOS 15.2 when the user unlocks the device or launches any app.
  6. There is also a Bluetooth disconnecting issue after iOS 15.2 update. Some users are not even able to pair their Bluetooth device to iPhone. One user on Reddit wrote that AirPods seemed to disconnect randomly while listening to music. 
  7. Reddit user wrote “My iPhone 12 feels sluggish. The app switcher and the control center lag sometimes. Also there was a major lag while scrolling through settings. And I also feel some touch response delays sometimes. Got to do a restore”.
  8. Unlock (while wearing mask) with Apple Watch is non-functional again (just like one of the iOS 14 updates before)
  9. Visual voicemail is gone and on Focus the share across devices feature won’t work so now people think I’m just being a douche when I’m trying to sleep. (I work completely on call with no schedule).
