In iOS 9, Apple released a brand new feature called Wi-Fi Assist. It was designed (quite intelligently), to automatically switch to cellular data when the Wi-Fi connection dropped. The feature, which is turned on by default, is designed to make the browsing experience seamless on iPhone even when the Wi-Fi connection wasn’t stable. But for some, it didn’t go so well.
Earlier today, Apple released an updated version of iOS 9.2.1 (build 13D20) to fix ‘Error 53’ which was controversially bricking iPhones that were repaired at unauthorized iPhone repair shops.
As we reported last week, thousands of users have been left with bricked iPhones because they got their broken Home buttons repaired from non-Apple approved repair shop instead of Apple Service Center, Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider.
There have been numerous reports from owners of the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6s Plus, stating that their battery percentage icon is no longer updated. Meaning, these iPhone users have no idea what battery percentage their device is really at. At times the battery percentage will drop below 20 percent and jump back up to 60 percent without any warning. While the the majority of these issues appear on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, it seems to have occurred on other iOS devices as well. Check out a simple way to fix the issue when it crops up.
