The iphone 15 has received multiple reports of bugs that are linked to virtual payments and car-related uses.
In some instances, when using the built-in wireless charging, the Apple Pay feature would stop working, for example.
On the Apple website the iOS 17.1.1 update says: “This update provides bug fixes for your iPhone”
“[Fixes] including: In rare circumstances, Apple Pay and other NFC features may become unavailable on iPhone 15 models after wireless charging in certain cars
“Weather Lock Screen widget may not correctly display snow”
Users can turn on automatic updates or go to their settings and find the“software update” tab to update.
While Apple’s previous update, iOS 17.1 introduced a host of new features, some users were less than impressed.
The update, released October 26, gave users the opportunity to AirDrop items to people over cell connection if the phones move out WiFi range, with another being a new 'Favorites' feature on Apple Music where you can add artists, songs, albums, and playlists to so that the app will start making more music recommendations that are up your street.
However, some users took to social media to claim the update has seen it drains battery life.
"My brand new phone battery is getting bad. 1% going every 7 mins. IOS 17.1 sucks," one X user wrote.
"Worst experience ever this year, after updating to iOS 17.1 my iPhone battery is draining like crazy. WTF is happening to Apple?!" another iPhone user added.
As well as this, while many Apple users have been delighted with the benefits of the titanium iphone 15 Pro and Pro Max, some have complained it has a overheating problem.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo addressed this and said the phone may be overheating while being used due to alleged design compromises that were made to ensure the phone is lighter.
SPWkinf on Medium in September, he wrote: “The primary cause is more likely the compromises made in the thermal system design to achieve a lighter weight, such as the reduced heat dissipation area and the use of a titanium frame, which negatively impacts thermal efficiency.
“If Apple does not properly address this issue, it could negatively impact shipments over the product life cycle of the iPhone 15 Pro series.”
Despite these claims, Apple has blamed software and app-related bugs for the problem rather than its hardware and titanium frame.
UNILAD has contacted Apple for comment.
