The defects and difficulties with the iPhone 14 thus far, along with an estimated release date for a patch

The Apple iPhone 14 series was only made available to consumers last week after being released in markets all around the world. However, it appears that the new phones are experiencing some teething issues in the form of bugs.

Numerous consumers have flocked to social media to complain about numerous problems specifically affecting their brand-new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. The camera on third-party apps or a software bug are the common themes among all of them, notwithstanding their little severity. Here, we list every defect that has recently been reported to be affecting the iPhone 14 Pro, whether Apple has acknowledged the problem, and when we can anticipate a remedy.

iPhone 14 Pro restarts erratically while charging

Owners of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have complained that their devices frequently restart when plugged into a charger. Although the source of this is unknown, it has been observed with both MagSafe and Lightning charging on several iOS 16 beta versions. If the phones are not plugged into a charger, they operate normally.

There is currently no official solution, and no one has quite figured out an all-encompassing workaround. Some Reddit (opens in new tab) users, however, assert that the issue may be resolved by performing a complete DFU restore and configuring the impacted phone as if it were brand-new. Others, however, have failed when using this strategy. Therefore, your only real options are to wait or try to exchange your phone for a new by contacting Apple.

 The iPhone 14 Pro “freezes up” while transferring data.

Setting up the new iPhone should be done as soon as possible. But a lot of iPhone 14 Pro users are stuck at the data transfer screen.Some consumers claim that the iPhone 14 Pro “freezes up” or stops responding while transferring data. There is an issue that prevents the phone from proceeding past an iCloud restoration or the data transfer option when transferring data from another iPhone, according to reports.

This bug still doesn’t appear to have a remedy as of yet. However, Apple has confirmed the problem and stated that it is “aware of this issue happening and is studying it” in an internal message to MacRumors (opens in new tab). Apple advises consumers to force reset their iPhones if they experience prolonged unresponsiveness (5 minutes or more), however.

Some apps cause the iPhone 14 Pro camera to “rattle and shake.”

This year, the iPhone 14 Pro received a 48MP camera upgrade, but it appears that the high resolution camera is not yet compatible with all social network apps. On websites like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok, some users have complained that the iPhone camera is “rattling” and “shaking.”

The camera’s optical image stabilisation feature, which is meant to lessen vibrations, appears to be having problems. Users have also noted audible sounds coming from the camera.

Issues with iMessage and FaceTime on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro

Some consumers have reported that after configuring their new iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro, they are unable to receive iMessages and FaceTime calls. Apple has warned customers to update to the most recent version of iOS, 16.0.1, in a support page that highlights this quite serious problem.

Apple states that customers may be dealing with one or more of the following problems in the support document (opens in new tab):



  • Neither FaceTime calls nor iMessages may be received.
  • When you send a message to another Apple device, a green message bubble appears in place of a blue one.
  • In Messages, conversations appear as two distinct threads rather than one.
  • When you use your phone number as your contact method, recipients see your messages as coming from the wrong account, such as your email address.


 [Update: An iOS 16.0.2 update from Apple has corrected this glitch]

Users are urged to update to the most recent version of iOS immediately after Apple recognised the flaw.

These “solutions” are not mentioned in the release notice for iOS 16.0.1, and Apple has provided fallback options in case users are “still experiencing an issue with iMessage or FaceTime.”

The following actions have been advised by Apple for individuals who are still having problems:

  • Choose Cellular from the Settings app. Check to see if your phone line is activated. Make sure the phone number you want to use is selected and turned on if you use multiple SIM cards.
  • Tap Messages in the Settings application. Next, select Send & Receive.
  • Select the phone number you want to use for Messages by tapping it.
  • Return to the Settings application and select FaceTime.
  • Select the phone number you want to use for FaceTime by tapping it.


Copy-paste glitch in iOS 16



The iPhone 14 is affected, as well as previous iPhones running iOS 16. When attempting to copy and paste content(opens in new tab) from one app to another on iPhones, there have been complaints of far too many pop-up alerts.


With the current release of iOS 16.0.2, this problem was resolved.

Issue with iOS 16’s battery life

The battery life of iPhones running iOS 16 has been drained, according to numerous customers. The iPhone XR and iPhone 13 appear to be affected by this issue, which does not appear to be specific to the iPhone 14 series. Users claim that the performance of their iPhone battery was “seriously” impacted after updating iOS 16.Since iOS 16 was released two weeks ago, the problem still hasn’t been resolved. At first, it was believed that the haptic keyboard was to blame for the battery loss, and Apple even suggested disabling the iOS 16 feature in Settings. But it doesn’t seem to have made a difference. The battery depletion issue was not resolved by the most recent iOS 16.0.2 update, which also repaired the copy/paste bug and the camera-shake issue on the iPhone 14.


The problem still needs to be fixed, though. There is currently no official statement on battery drain for iOS 16.0.3. The iOS 16.1 update, which is presently in development but is expected to arrive in October, may be the only solution at this time. However, it does not yet indicate a patch for the battery life issue.Apple Support (opens in new tab) has been advising some users to try restarting their phones or, if that doesn’t work, to perform a restore. Additionally, we advise you to try off the haptic keyboard feedback option in the Settings menu under “Sounds & Haptics.”
