6 Major iOS 16 Problems & Issues

By Govind

With the excitement of the release of the stable version of iOS 16, Apple has also witnessed a lot of setbacks. Despite the series of updates that the brand has introduced, users can’t get over the fact that the model comes with a series of downsides and bug issues.

From installation issues to the prevalent camera problems, iOS users have recently complained about a lot of limitations with the iOS 16 after installing it on their compatible iPhones.

This article will explore all the major iOS 16 problems and some quick fixes for the same.

6 Major iOS 16 Problems & Issues

1.      Installation issue

One of the most prevalent issues that most users have complained about is the iOS 16 installation process. Since there is peak demand for the installation, a delay in Apple’s server is causing the installation to get buffered in the middle.

A hard reset can fix the issue but you might end up losing your data, so be aware of that. Also, if the installation isn’t going through, cross-check your internet connection. Sometimes, a slow internet connection is also a potential reason why you aren’t able to install iOS 16 on your iPhone.

2.      Battery life problems

Another potential iOS 16 problem is battery drainage. The unnecessary or quick draining of your battery could be for multiple reasons, including a background app, enabled location, auto-brightness, etc.

Identify what’s draining your battery and then implement the relevant fix for the problem to fix the issue for good.

3.      Bluetooth problems

Another underrated problem that’s worth looking into is the Bluetooth issue. Many users are complaining about pairing issues or the Bluetooth not showing devices in the surroundings.

If your iPhone’s Bluetooth isn’t working after installing iOS 16, you can reset the network settings to fix the issue. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone
  2. Tap on General
  3. From there, click on Reset
  4. Then, tap on “Reset Network Settings”

This will take some time for the reset process to happen. That said, once the reset is done, you’d have to enable your Bluetooth and set up the devices from scratch.

4.      Wifi issues

If you notice that your wifi is slower than normal, it could be network issues once again. Sometimes, it could be an issue with the router or modem too. You can hard reset your router and then check back to see if that fixes the problem or not.

If nothing changes, reset the network settings by following the steps:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone
  2. Tap on General
  3. From there, click on Reset
  4. Then, tap on “Reset Network Settings”

Remember that resetting this will log you out of any connected wifi network, so you’d have to reconnect by entering the password again.

5.      Cellular data issues

The next issue that many users are complaining about is cellular data issues. Many users are experiencing “no service” after installing iOS 16 on their devices.

If that’s happening with your iPhone, the first thing you need to do is cross-check whether or not the cellular network in the area is up or not. If it’s an issue that’s affecting the entire area, there’s nothing you can do but wait.

But, if the issue is with your iPhone, you can reset your network settings to see if that helps.

6.      Facetime issues

If you are experiencing issues receiving or making Facetime calls, your first step is to cross-check if it’s an Apple server’s issue. The best way to check it is by looking for a green symbol beside Facetime. The green symbol indicates that it is an issue with your device.

In that case, follow the steps mentioned to fix the issue:

  1. Open your iPhone Settings
  2. Tap on Facetime
  3. If the “Waiting for Activation” option is there, turn off the toggle and then turn it on

Close the Facetime app in the background and then restart it again to check if the issue is still there or not.


These are some of the most prevalent iOS 16 issues and bugs that most users are complaining about. If you are facing any of these problems, be assured that the quick fixes we have mentioned should take care of the issues for good.
