Every... single.... time.... that Apple issues an iOS update to “fix” something, something ELSE that used to work perfectly no longer does! I have just about had it with these damned iPhones and will look for alternatives next purchase!!!

That is all.

Just upgraded to the latest iOS on our two phones and everything seems to be working fine. In fact over the years I've had Apple phones I've never had anything quit working after an update.

What quit working on yours?

I've seen a few odd things happen over the years after an update.

For example, after the last ios update text messaging has developed an intermittent delay when trying to compose a response.

Open up a text to read it, then when trying to reply there is a few seconds delay before the message box will allow typing or voice input, it just hangs.... Never been that way in the past...

Two problems over the last two updates:

#1: Whenever someone calls me, when the call is ended the ringer volume automatically drops to the minimum, and I have to manually put it back where I had it. If I make the call, it stays where it was!

#2: Prior to the last two updates, I could keep my phone in my shirt pocket and use Siri to read (listen to) incoming texts. Now I have to unlock the phone first, which means handling the phone momentarily while driving; not something I wish to do! Used to be just like talking to someone in the car with me, now I have to touch the Home button to unlock it... Mad

1: Settings>Face ID & Passcode
Type in your Passcode

Scroll to Attention Aware Features and deselect it

Your volume will remain loud now even if you pick up the phone.


2: I went to settings/Siri and search and toggled allow Siri when locked off and back on. That seems to have fixed it for me.

Here's One Wierd Trick (tm) to resolve this:

After an OS update, don't update immediately. The system needs you to log in to allow the update...so screw that. Click 'later' and go about your business.

Apps post updates after OS patches...keep yours updated and take note of the number that pop up. After awhile the new quirks and bug-swaps will all get worked out, and the number of new apps needing updates will dwindle.

Then - after the flood of app tweaks and workarounds has abated - go in and give your device permission for the OS update.

TL: DR - Cupertino proposes, user disposes. Smile

I have noticed this sort of thing many times.

After an update, something that was working correctly before, now seems to be broken, but almost every time, it's just a setting that has been changed by the update and just needs to be reset, or maybe there's a new setting available to deal with it.

Apple support has always been very helpful. I'm hearing impaired, so I don't use the support phone number, I use the chat.

I did the 14.4 update. So far, so good. But after every update, I go over all
my settings to ensure everything is still GTG.

You want the 14.4 update. Fixes a few serious security holes, 2 in WebKit (the basis for mobile safari).

That, and sometimes an update turns off a feature I have enabled, such as Voice Control, or enables a new feature I would rather be off.
 
I prefer to use IPSW files for updates, rather than OTA. The IPSW file is a complete package of the full OS, and is large (currently 6.3GB), but I've always downloaded large files like that in the background (the full installer package for macOS Big Sur is 12.2GB). I've been wary of OS updates/installs OTA ever since a Microsoft Service Pack OTA bricked a machine, due to network interruption of the update.
 
Using an IPSW file is easy. After downloading it, plug your phone into the computer, open iTunes, and hold the Option key down while you click Update. This puts you in file browser mode so you can locate the IPSW file in your file system. Then just continue the update process. It's all done locally on your machine, eliminating outside influences. IPSW files are also better for fixing a bricked phone, using DFU mode. I would say necessary, because if you are having to use DFU mode, you would be downloading the OS OTA if you did not have the IPSW.
 
I've found the best place to download genuine Apple IPSW files for iPhones is ipsw.me. The links they provide take you directly to Apple servers. Also, I just read that for M1 Macs, Apple will be releasing the OS as IPSW files, rather than as an .app file as had been the case.

Only thing I’ve noticed, is occasionally a setting has changed and I have to go find out where it is to change it back. For instance, suddenly unable to delete a web page I had added to my Home Screen. (Ipad).
Luckily, did some searching and found out that the setting for allowing deletion of apps had been turned off. Turned it back on and all is well, for now. Just caused a bunch of grumbling and fumbling trying to find where everything is to check.

I think that's how I avoid problems also.

Something else I learned this morning I was curious about. Probably likely that other members are aware of this new security feature that came with the new iOS upgrade. The other day I noticed a little green dot light in the upper right corner of the screen lit up, couldn't imagine what it was and thought it was some kind of additional battery life indicator. Actually after taking the time and/or reading here about upgrade features, in the new privacy upgrade this little green light indicates that an app has accessed your camera, or if it's an orange color, an app has accessed your microphone. To see what app is accessing this feature on your phone just swipe down from the upper right and in your control center it will provide the app thats using that feature. You can correct it by going to settings/privacy and disable these functions for that app.

I-SPY Watch out for this green dot on your iPhone – it means someone is watching

In iOS 14, a green dot will appear in the upper right corner of the screen when the cameras activated.

And it's orange if the microphone was activated.
