At WWDC 2023, Apple unveiled iOS 17, which includes a few small updates that together improve the user experience. Nothing revolutionary, but a collection of small improvements that make the software more polished as a whole. Since there aren’t many new features, iOS 17 is presumably concentrating on stability.
What’s new in iOS 17?
The iOS 17 brings a variety of upgrades and new features. Here are some of them as follows:
- Call screens that may be customized are the main feature. Your calls get more deeply personalized as a result.
- The iMessage applications have been centralized in one easy-to-access location.
- On iMessage, swipe to respond is now available.
- Another recent addition is Live Voicemail, which allows you to view a Live Transcription of any message.
- You may use your phone as a bedtime clock with the StandBy feature, which displays glanceable information in landscape orientation.
- You will now be able to read a voicemail without having to listen to it thanks to audio message transcription.
- Interactive widgets let you do a variety of things with a swipe, including playing music, marking off reminders, turning off lights, and more.
- Finally, new Safari capabilities like various web profiles are available.
List of iOS 17 (Official) Glitches and Bugs
Here’s a comprehensive list of all the bugs and glitches that we have compiled for you:
- Numerous consumers have experienced serious overheating problems since switching to iOS 17. This issue is important because the iPhone lacks a passive cooling mechanism, although Apple can resolve it in a later update.
- Some X reports claim that the phone ceases to charge at 80. Then it indicates that it will resume charging once it has cooled. After 80%, it starts to slow down significantly, and a full charge takes more than 2 hours. There is currently no known fix for this problem, so you are likely trapped with an 80% battery.
- Micro-stutters and optimization problems are present in a few older iPhone models. When multitasking, the animations flow erratically and are glitchy.
- It’s ineffective to set the charge limit to 80%. Numerous times, it allows the phone to reach 100%, and even after activating this setting, the phone continues to charge entirely.
- With iOS 17, some apps, including X and WhatsApp, break frequently and have compatibility difficulties. These apps occasionally malfunction erratically and won’t launch. The program must be completely deleted from the application switcher before you can reopen it.
- On iOS 17, you can no longer alter the default notification tone. We’re unsure if this is a bug or if it’s done on purpose.
- Sometimes the same notice is sent twice by the same program. Nearly every third-party app can send two notifications. Since the initial iOS 17 Beta releases, this has been a problem.
- The bottom has an odd color distortion with a dark blue tint that covers the entire surface.
- Another bug causes the entire lock & home screen combination to show nothing but an empty page with no background image. Swiping out of the home/lock screen customization page and back in will fix it.
- Sometimes when you open the Fonts section in the Settings app, the app closes the tab or informs you that no fonts are installed.
- iOS 16 includes a useful feature to make iOS easier to use with one hand. Your home screen has a search button at the bottom, above the dock. Nevertheless, some users claim that even when the toggle is turned on, the search tab is not shown on the home screen.
- Locking the phone by pressing the power key to lock the phone takes some time. It takes the phone roughly a full second after you press it before the display turns off.
- The network reception or signal strength doesn’t display properly. This happens at random and there is no real remedy, so even restarting doesn’t completely repair it.
- Some system programs, such as Safari, use an excessive amount of storage. Since Safari generally uses less than 200MB of storage, 2.91 GB is out of the ordinary.
- Photos don’t always save themselves to the Photos app on iOS. Any image may be saved to the Photos application using Haptic Touch to accomplish this.
- Even in iOS 17, disappearing widgets are a typical occurrence. Swipe downwards on the NotifCentern centre or the Control Centre to bring them back.
- The iOS 17 Notification Summary feature has a lot of problems. When you try to force the entire summary to open, the UI strangely expands out and the screen starts to stutter.
- Clearing notifications is fraught with issues. It’s not fun to use per-app categorization because you can’t remove them properly. You must individually swipe out each notification from the right onto the left to clear them. Since each one must be completed individually, it takes substantially longer.
- On iOS 17, there are still several problems with AirDrop. It frequently fails to identify your other device. The file cannot be successfully transferred using AirDrop either.
- In the first place, iOS 17 isn’t particularly accommodating to public Wi-Fi connections. If you join a public network that needs a separate server sign-in to access the internet, it won’t function properly. Sometimes the network connection entirely breaks down.
- Safari shouldn’t use any battery if no programs are open and active. Users lost about 26% after about three and a half hours of screen time even though they don’t have any secure or Safari tabs open.
- iOS 17 is experiencing a quick signal loss in regions with poor cellular reception. With eSIM, this is significantly worse, as you frequently need to switch between Aeroplane Mode and restart your phone to obtain just a few signal bars.
How to Report an iOS 17 Bug?
Keep in mind that beta software isn’t intended for regular use. It is susceptible to several errors and inconsistencies. There is a chance of app crashes, and the UI response is substantially poorer.
Write a note in the Feedback Assistant application to report an iOS 17 bug. You must submit a single problem in each report, and you shouldn’t group several issues into a single report.
Write a precise title for the iOS 17 bug you’re experiencing. It needs to be a succinct summary. The following step is to define the bug. You must list both the actual outcomes you obtained and the anticipated outcomes.
Finally, if you were able to get a screenshot, you may include any evidence of the bug.
