iOS 14 Wifi and Battery issues Continue After Bug Fix Update

ios 14 battery and wifi issues

On September 16, Apple launched iOS 14 for all compatible iPhones and also rolled out the iOS 14.0.1 update after just one week. Some problems that came along with the iOS 14 update were resolved by this update. But it seems the latest update has some glitches in it as well.

To fix bugs that were reported in the iOS 14 update, Apple released iOS 14.0.1. The bugs addressed in this update were: 

  • Fixes a problem that could trigger your iPhone to reset the default browser and mail settings after restarting 
  • Addresses a problem that could prevent displays of camera previews on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus 
  • Fixes a problem that might impede the connection of your iPhone to Wi-Fi networks 
  • Solve a problem that could prohibit some mail providers from sending an email 
  • Addresses a problem that might prevent the appearance of photos in the News widget
To fix the above-mentioned problems, Apple has rolled out this new update, but after downloading it, the bugs still continue to pop up. There were some unfixed issues and the update came along with some new issues.

These include problems with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and widespread problems with widgets. Keyboard lag, device instability, and weak battery life are the latest bugs identified following the update. 

This is the beginning of a big update, and in the upcoming updates, there will be some bugs that will be repaired. Apple is looking forward to the 14.0.2 update to iOS that will address these problems.

Resetting network settings -- go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings -- helps some people experiencing connectivity issues, but for others does nothing other than creating the hassle of having to add back devices and networks.
