iOS 7.1.2 Update Battery Issues: How To Boost The Life Of Your Device After Download
Although the iOS 7.1.2 update has brought some much-needed bug fixes, there have been a few issues with the latest iteration that have affected user experience — including battery life.
We previously offered up a how-to on improving battery life for iOS 7.1.1, but thanks to Gotta Be Mobile, there is a new solution available that should fix your 7.1.2 problems, too.
Here is a quick fix that should have you back to speed in just a few minutes:
Complete Settings Reset: This will reset all of your settings without removing your content.
1.) Select Settings
2.) Select General
3.) Scroll down and select Reset
4.) Select Reset All Settings
5.) Enter your password (if necessary)
If you don’t see the results you hoped, you can also try fixing the issue by powering your device off. For another fix, make sure to head over to Gotta Be Mobile.
During the installation process of 7.1.2, users are also reporting on Reddit that their iPhone is freezing midway through — with some devices shutting down completely, requiring a reboot and forcing users to start the download from the start again. If you have experienced this issue, however, the users have noted all you need to do is peform a hard reset, which involves holding the home button and Power button simultaneously, to get the download to update properly after.
Other reported concerns with the update have come with issues to camera, iMessage, Wi-Fi and getting VPNs to work correctly, according to the publication.
The 7.1.2 update reportedly works with a new, untethered jailbreak offered up by Chinese hackers, CNET reported earlier this week.
The Pangu jailbreak tool, which was unveiled last week, can be installed for use after users download the new 7.1.2 mobile OS iteration, according to testing from the blog Redmond Apple Pie, which makes sense given 7.1.2 is a minor update for security patches and bug fixes. The jailbreak is compatible with any device that can run 7.1.1, according to the publication.
