1. Fast Draining Battery Life (iOS 11)
If you just upgraded your iPhone, there’s a really good chance you’re noticing a serious battery drain problem. Early updates of iOS 11 took an average of one hour and 36 minutes on average to drain iPhones completely, compared to the iOS 10 update, which took about four hours.
What do do?
Check Unwanted Background Running Apps: Head to Settings > Battery. You’ll see a list of apps and their impacts on your battery life.
Check Always On Location Service: Head to Settings > Privacy > Location Services to customize which apps you want spending that much effort on your location.
Check Counter-Productive Visual effects. Control Center: Swipe up from the bottom of your phone and use the slider in Control Center to reduce your screen’s brightness.
Or go to Settings > Display & Brightness. While you’re here, set your screen to Auto-Lock too. Set it to 30 seconds if you can stand it, otherwise, a few minutes should be good, especially since most of Apple’s iPhones now let you use the raise to wake feature.
2. Cant Send Mails from Mail App if using Microsoft’s Outlook.com, Office 365 or Exchange (iOS 11)
Its Mail app can have issues sending messages from accounts on Microsoft’s Outlook.com, Office 365 or Exchange Server 2016 systems. As a tech-support note posted last week warns, Mail may show a “message was rejected by the server” error and leave your outgoing e-mail stuck on the device.
What to Do?
Apple is working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issue and will release a fix soon in an upcoming software update.” In the meantime, a Microsoft tech-support note reminds iOS 11 users that they can work around this by installing the company’s free Outlook iOS app.
3. Use of Generic Chargers Leads to Battery Swelling and Cracks (iOS 11)
Several users have posted images of the phenomenon to Twitter, with some customers claiming that the casing cracked open during charging. Others suggested that their handsets were broken straight out of the box.
The finger of blame is being pointed at the battery. Unconfirmed reports state the iPhone 8 Plus uses the same battery manufacturer, Amperex Technology Limited (ATL), as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
4. Crackling earpiece issue (iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus)
Some iPhone 8 owners are running into an issue with the phone’s earpiece: when they make a call, the earpiece makes a disruptive “crackling” or “static” sound that disrupts the audio. Apple said in a statement that the issue only comes up in a “small number” of cases and that the company is working on a software update to fix the problem. “We are aware of the issue which is affecting customers in a small number of cases,” an Apple spokesperson said. “Our team is at work on a fix, which will be included in an upcoming software release.”
It’s not clear what’s causing certain iPhones to be affected. The problem seems to impact both the 8 and 8 Plus, and owners indicate that it’s happening across different carriers and in different parts of the world, too. The crackling only occurs during some phone and Facetime calls, though — it doesn’t happen during every single call, and it doesn’t show up when using the earpiece as a loudspeaker. That suggests it may be a software problem, like Apple is saying, since the hardware itself isn’t consistently displaying the issue.
You can get a sense for what the crackling sounds like in the video below — you’ll probably need to wear headphones to hear it:
