[Cont. updated] Apple iPhone 12 series bugs & issues tracker January 1, 2021 – Posted in: Smartphone news


This article is being continously updated, with new updates being added to the bottom of the story (and in the table)

Original story (from November 28) follows:

Apple unveiled the iPhone 12 series on October 13 during the ‘Hi, Speed’ event that was live-streamed online. This time around the Cupertino tech giant didn’t just release 3 phones like it has in the few couple of years.

Instead, Apple launched 4 different iPhone 12 models — iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and the biggest iPhone yet — the iPhone 12 Pro Max, which sports a 6.7-inch display.

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro were the only two models that went on sale initially whereas the iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini went on sale for the first time on November 13.

It’s the first time Apple has equipped all models with OLED displays thus eliminating any major differences between all iPhone 12 series devices apart from the cameras.

Being the latest iPhones, they are also some of the most powerful smartphones, and thanks to iOS 14, users get some much needed features and improvements in the software department as well.

Nonetheless, no matter how good or well-specced a device is, users are bound to run into certain issues mostly due to software errors and glitches.

Of course, at times some problems may unfortunately be the result of hardware problems, however, such issues are often uncommon and usually require the entire device to be replaced.

That said, even though the iPhone 12 series were launched only a month ago, as users have started getting their hands on the new Apple phones, we’re starting to see many bugs and issues being reported.

iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini

Matter of fact, we recently reported on several bugs and issues plaguing the iPhone 12 series such as the heavy battery draining problem, overheating issue, and activation issues to name a few.

And as the days go by, new iPhone 12 series issues or bugs seem to surface online with dozens of users demanding Apple to fix such problems.

Fortunatley though, Apple does fix most major issues via software updates that it pushes to iPhones regularly. Thus, most existing bugs and issues on the iPhone 12 series should be squashed via upcoming patches.

So in order to help you keep track of the status of existing bugs and newer ones that may eventually pop up, we will be tracking all developments and will update the tracker below with the latest information.
