Ever since iOS 14 and watchOS 7 debuted, it seems several users have had a variety of issues with both operating systems.
In response, Apple published a new support article detailing potential fixes for problems like accelerated battery drain, inaccurate data reporting on iOS and watchOS, and more.
Some of these steps may be a little complicated for beginners. Outside of a system reset, there are some instructions to pair and unpair the Apple Watch, create phone backups, and other resolutions that could “prevent future data loss,” Apple says.
iOS 14 was a major iOS update, bringing new ways to organize apps on your home screen, widgets, and a variety of different ways to customize your phone. It also supports inline replies in group chats as well as pinned conversations to keep track of who you’re talking to and when. It’s a hefty update overall, but with so much to offer, it’s hardly surprising that there are hiccups.
Overall, we found iOS 14 to offer a plethora of new ways to change up what has felt like a somewhat stagnant OS over the years and recommend it, as we wrote in our review. If you’re experiencing issues, however, perhaps these fixes from Apple can resolve them.
