Since the launch of the iPhone 14 series, there have been many reports about the series. At the time of release, the first reports appeared that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus were not worth buying. This is because they come with little or no enhancements. Then sales figures started pouring in, and the iPhone 14/14 Plus is still unimpressive. However, the iPhone 14 Pro / Pro Max was largely praised for its significant improvements. The punch display, Smart Island function, and 48MP main camera are some of the enhancements to the Pro series. However, even the Pro series had a lot of problems. While most issues link to the iOS 16 beta, some are software related. In fact, the iPhone 14 Pro purple paint peeling problem appears to be a manufacturing flaw.
Automatic restart while charging
Some Apple iPhone 14 Pro users have complained that the iOS 16 battery is easy to discharge. However, this seems to be the easiest problem with this smartphone so far. Currently, some customers report that their iPhones reboot intermittently when charging via MagSafe or Lightning. In a Reddit thread, some users complained that the iPhone 14 Pro was randomly restarting while charging. This problem has been around for 8 days, including charging with a MagSafe or Lightning cable.
Another user says the iPhone 14 Pro Max running iOS 16.0.1 restarts every 10-20 minutes while charging. There are also reports that even on iOS 16.0.2 or iOS 16.1 Beta the problem persists. According to one user, “This only happens when the battery is 90-95% charged (especially 93%) and the phone is idle. (…) So far, the only thing that can be done is to turn off background app refreshing ”. For those who can afford it, your best bet is to return your iPhone within 14 days and purchase another – or request a replacement at your local Apple Store.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro / Max Chinese version Bug – Only one SIM can be used
While some problems are more widespread, others are confined to certain regions. Recall that the iPhone 14 series does not support physical SIM cards. They only use e-SIM. However, the Chinese version does support two SIM cards. However, there seems to be a manufacturing “flaw” as a large number of Chinese users have received the iPhone 14 series with only one SIM card slot. There are reports that Apple China has delayed shipping these devices in China due to this issue.
Gizchina News of the week
According to the opinion of Internet users, one side of the two-card slot of some iPhone 14 Pro series is designed so that a SIM card cannot be inserted. Only one SIM card can be used in this way. As we said before, the American version of the iPhone 14 series is very radical. Completely eliminates physical SIM tray, all using eSIM technology. iPhones support eSIM from major carriers such as AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. However, for Chinese operators, eSIM mobile services are not active at the moment. According to official information on the Apple website, the Chinese version of the iPhone 14 series will support two NanoSIM card slots. This means that in China, the iPhone 14 will continue to use physical SIM cards.
Despite these software and hardware issues, iPhone 14 Pro / Pro Max sales in China are still pretty decent. Demand is high, but Apple will have to troubleshoot the SIM card before shipping. In addition, the company may have to recall units already shipped.
iPhone 14 Pro Smart Island can’t shut down
Apple’s main innovation iPhone 14 Pro the series models are “Smart Island”. This new feature turns the buttonhole into something useful. The Smart Island feature connects to pill-shaped area by surrounding pixels of the display. This gives users a new way to interact with iPhone. So maybe view important reminders, notifications and events in real time. This feature can even display live sports game results. Simply put, it becomes the information center of the new iPhone 14 Pro series.
However, there are users who find that the content displayed on Smart Island can be distracting, especially when trying to focus on other content on the iPhone screen. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to turn off Smart Island directly. This is because the feature is built into the new iOS 16. However, if the display content and animations distract you, you can remove them by swiping left or right on the island without affecting the related background app activity.
Swipe to remove content from Smart Island
For example, if an album is playing in Apple Music, you can swipe left or right on Smart Island to remove items such as sound waves from displaying while the music continues to play in the background. Similarly, if the smart island meter display is removed, it will continue to count down in the background even if it is no longer visible on the smart island.
If there are two background activities on Smart Island and you want to remove one or both, you can use the same swipe gesture on most of it to disappear. Then swipe in the same way to cancel one of the remaining background activities. After deleting all displayed app activities from Smart Island, the pill shape returns to its previous idle state. This will allow you to fully focus on the rest of the display. This is Apple’s first attempt at using the Smart Island feature. We expect the feature to improve in future updates.
