5 Things that Can Happen to Your iOS and What to Do About It
Even though iOS 9.2 was released in the September of 2015, there are already some rumors about the version 10 release date. While the date is not known, people at Pc Advisor guess that the public will get the first glimpse of the new iOS in June 2016. (pcadvisor.co.uk, November 2015). But while you wait for the new upgrades to happen, you need to learn how to deal with the most common glitches that the 9.2 version has.
Lack of Space for 9.1/9.2
This can easily happen to those that have devices with low storage space. Also, it is a thing that bugs those that download a lot of apps and do not delete old and unnecessary attachments and messages. Therefore, even though iOS 9 is not much bigger than 1.3 GB, you may lack some space to install it. You will fix this by deleting everything that you do not need on your device. Also, this update allows you do temporarily delete some apps until you upgrade the software and then put them back.
Freezing in the Recovery Mode
Another variety of this issue is getting stuck with the iTunes logo. This can happen because of the software update, factory resetting and other similar reasons. You will fix this by holding down Home and Sleep/Wake button until the device turns off and repeat it until it turns on. In a number of cases, this will be enough to fix the glitch. If it persists, start iTunes and plug in your phone. It should detect the iOS in the Recovery mode. Find the “Summary” command on your iTunes and use it.
Losing Data After Upgrade to 9.1/9.2
A number of people reported the loss of different documents and other types of data after the iOS 9 upgrade. To prevent this, you need to upload all the important data on the cloud before upgrading your iOS. However, if you failed to do so, you will need a good and reliable app that does data recovery. If you do not feel comfortable doing any of these things on your own, find the nearest reliable professional that does phone repairs and seek for their help. People in Australia can easily get help by contacting the iPhone Doctor.
“Slide to Upgrade” Screen Won’t Go Away
Some users tried to upgrade to the iOS 9 and their screen froze during the “Slide to Upgrade”. So far, experts found several possible solutions to this problem. The first thing to try is to forcefully reboot the device by holding down Home and Sleep/Wake button. If this does not work, it is time to restore your phone to factory settings by plugging it on the computer and using the iTunes. Another version of the solution would be using the computer to downgrade to iOS 8.4.1 and then attempt to upgrade to 9 again.
iPad Cannot use the Low Power Mode
This is a very useful feature that grants your device another hour of battery life. Low power mode is meant for iPhone users because these phones sometimes struggle with their battery. However, iPad users noticed that they do not have this option after the upgrade. This is not a glitch – this feature simply is not a part of this upgrade. Therefore, it cannot be fixed. You can point out this issue to Apple and try making them introduce this feature in the following version.
Some of the users decided to skip some of the upgrades of their iOS and simply waited for the next one. However, it seems that the smartest course of action is to read the reviews first, so that you know what to expect and have a good backup of your files and apps. After that, you are ready for the newest version of your iOS.
