Bugs: iOS 8.1.2 battery, WiFi and Lag issues and their fixes

iOS 8 can be easily termed as the operating system, which has been a boon for a few and a near about curse to some individuals as well. iOS 8 was released this September on numerous Apple devices, but the operating system has not performed the same way for all. In some cases, iOS 8 has added a completely new life to the Apple device, but in some others, has led to quite a few terrible issues. The scenario is very much same for Apple’s flagship devices iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well.ios8_messages

The situation has become worse with the release of the update pack of iOS 8. Since upgrading to iOS 8.1.2, the Apple devices have suffered more than ever. Here is a sneak into the most common issues with iOS 8.1.2 and their possible solutions:


Battery Life:

Battery is an issue for most of the smartphones in the market currently. With all the different kinds of applications running, battery drain is certainly one of the main headaches for smartphone users But with iOS 8.1.2, battery drain is a much severe issue as the device falls short of the expected battery life claim by at least 4-5 hours.

Let us be true, you cannot add another application to your system and look to save battery. The application might just end up consuming more power than others. The best possible way to optimize your power consumption is to keep a few things in check by yourself. Make sure you turn off the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, LTE, etc. when not in use. You should also maintain the display settings and keep your power saving system on.

Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues:

This is yet another region where iOS 8.1.2 users seem to have suffered a lot. The sudden loss of connectivity and low internet speed is one of the common issues related to Wi-Fi in iOS 8.1.2. To be precise, this either has to be the fault of the Wi-Fi driver of your system or your router.

There is no fixed method by which you can actually ensure that you get proper connectivity or better speeds. You can always lower the bandwidth to 2.4 GHz from 5 GHz, as less range might just help you to improve connectivity as well as speed.

System Lag:

Frankly speaking, iOS 8 has been designed in such a way, it should never lag or fall apart. But sadly, with the iOS 8.1.2 update, System lag has become a very common issue with most of the iOS 8.1.2 devices. You might very well see an application updating at one instance and at the next instance, the update fails. While doing something, your screen might stand still not responding to the touches as well coupled with many more system issues.

The main issue is probably with the mainframe of iOS 8.1.2. The truth is that you can just delay the lag by cleaning RAM and ROM periodically, but that is not a permanent solution.

All the solutions that I have talked about, are probably temporary ones. The only way the users can be relieved of the issues permanently is when Apple removes the bugs or glitches  causing the issues.
