I updated to IOS 8.3 iPhone 5 last night now my phone does not ring it only vibrates and this morning for about 20 minutes the ringer silent icon kept on blinking on and off and vibrating.
The setting are set correctly to ring and vibrate but as stated it only vibrates now.
So far that is all that I have noticed incorrect from the update.
Thank you,


Sometimes when I plug in the lighning cableinto my iphone 6 there is no charging sound. This happens after i upgrade to ios 8.3

iPhone 6. Did upgrade to 8.3 and now it keeps saying Storage almost full even though I have 64 GB and I'm only using 13 GB. My iCloud storage however shows I'm only using 5 GB for my phone which is correct. My Siri also does not work correctly know since the upgrade. She cannot recognize the request that I make however it does make for some good humor.

iPad 3 speaker stopped working after iOS 8.3 update was installed. Initially I heard static then no sound. Earphones work fine. Any ideas or suggestions welcome.

Since updating to 8:3 I have no keyboard click sounds, no notification sounds and no sound to let me know when I put my iPad on to charge. Most annoying. I think I am going to stop updating software. Every time I do it causes more problems than it solves 🙁 anyone else have this problem. Anyone have a solution?

I have this same issue, so if there is a solution I would love to hear it. ALSO -SIRI is now just about worthless, takes forever to respond and most of the time just times out. Turning the phone off and back on again gets Siri working temporarily but as soon as you're finished with the one time it's back to timing out. I agree ios 8.3 WORST UPDATE EVER!

I have the same issue, only have sound through headphones. No ring or text tones nos sound through earpiece or speaker.Recorded voice memo & that will play through speaker but is quiet.
I am able to adjust the ringer & volume but no sounds come out.

After updating my iPhone 6 to 8.3, my bookmarks disappeared and I don't receive notification sounds for text messages.

when I upgraded to 8.03, I am no longer able to get the phone keypad to appear to respond to automated phone prompts . I.e press 1 for…. Press 2 for.. My keypad button does not respond and the screen flashes off and on. It also will not hang up if I press the red disconnect button.

I have also noticed that it locks up and becomes unresponsive on Internet use or texting.

I have a 5C.

Any help is appreciated.

Did the software update on iPad mini 2. Audio messages record but they do not send. iPad can receive audio messages and play back but the sender cannot send!

After the iOS 8.3 update My iPhone 4s no longer plays sound in apps, my volume function and controls do not work. My ringer does but nothing else, my camera, Facebook.. Any way to fix?

I have an Iphone 5 and after I updated to IOS 8.3 and now my purchased ringtones won't play in my library or on my phone. Any suggestions?

Since success with upgrading IOS has proven to be a crap-shoot, a billion dollar company should AT LEAST allow people to revert back to the prior IOS version that they just upgraded from. Massive fail from a company that earns billions.

The Now Playing feature disappeared after I updated my 4S. Now when I close the music app and come back to it later it doesn't show the last song played on a playlist. I have to manually find the last song if playing songs in order but I usually shuffle all songs and have to skip repeated songs.

I upgrade my iPhone 4s with iOS 8.0 after that mail application is crashed, when I opened it white screen come and after few seconds phone comes on main screen. I tried the rebooting even delete my mail and again install but problem not solved, please help me. I had tried everything which is suggested in this conversation.

Texting is awful now. The screen magnifies without warning, then returns to normal. The screen opens other options while you are texting. What's up with that?! All since updating to 8.3

I have updated my phone to 8.3 and people always said they can't hear me properly I sound very far! Up until today I gave my phone to my husband and I spoke on his phone and it does sound very far and dulled. I have reset my phone but nothing happens. I have a iPhone 5c and it's annoying. My speaker works and my voice recorder it's just when I'm on the phone

Every time I restart my phone my purchased tones won't work & battery doesn't last nearly as long as when I first got the phone.

Since installing IOS 8.3 on my IPhone, I can't hear voice over through my Apple headphones. Resetting to factory setting did not help. What to do?

after update to the latest ios, all my notifications sounds can't hear and all turn into vibrate except for the incoming call ringtone. even the keyboard sound also can't function.
how to solve this??

Since update my mic volume in call is a most inaudible, switch to loudspeaker mode and the other caller can hear me perfect, I've tried reset, restore, sirI on and off, nothing seems to address the problem, it isn't hardware as the mic is working just so low gain if I shouted 2 tin cans would work better. Where do I stand as my 2 yr old 5 32gig is out of warranty but it's apples update that has buggered it?

My iphone6 no longer notifies me when receiving a text. I updated to 8.3 a short time ago and believe this might be problem as I received sound notification before.

I found my own solution. I went to Settings, then under Do Not Disturb I turmed Manual to off. My audio alerts now work.

I updated to 8.3 and now I no longer get voicemail notifications (the little number in the red circle). I have an ipohone 5S with straighttalk, so I can't use visual voicemail, but up until last month, I still rec'd the notification.

Each time I get a new app notification (number in red circle) it says there is an additional notification that isn't actually there. This has happened in multiple apps. For example, Facebook will say I have 2 new notification, but there's really only one. Or three new snaps in sbapchat but there really only two.

So I updated to ios 8.3, now facebook doesnt work anymore and I cant log into it. It keeps saying my internet is offline but its not! ITS PERFECTLY FINE. I need facebook to login into Brave Frontier game app! Help!

i updated my iPhone 6+, shortly after the update I noticed the my back camera will not focus all images are blurry; However, front camera works fine. Any suggestions for a fix or is this something that I will have to put up with till next update?

I have the same problem with my iPhone 5c
They told me it would cost me $300 to fix my rear camera when it's the recently update..

Since updating to iOS 8.3 my vibrate no longer works with any notifications. When I switch the phone to silent it vibrates, but no other time. Also I lost all my purchased ringtones. And I recently backed up my phone to my computer but still get a message saying this phone has never been backed up.

when i want to update my aps it either spins or brings up the circle with the square bot does not fill up. i am trying to update
1. Minecraft PE
2. Real Racing 3
3. google chrome
4. youtube
5. kik

after updating my iphone 6 to 8.3 it has stuck in headphone mode and i tried all possible things like restore and factory settings but cant help it

My ringer and keyboard sounds on my iPhone 5 mute whenever I use the keyboard. The only way to get the sound back is to restart. Once I do and use the keyboard again the ringer and other sounds stop working. How can I fix this?

since i updated to the latest ios 8.3 my rear camera has black screen on it . Tried restoring it but to no avail..this is so frustrating as they said the last option is to go the authorised dealer to fix it =(

Ive updated to 8.3 and it was working fine until just recently. I can't play videos on youtube, snapchat, kik, instagram etc. anymore. Pictures will load, and i have full bars of wifi, but no matter how long i wat the videos dont load. Ive tried resenting the router and my iphone. I've cleared all my apps and ive even re installed instagram and nothings working. I've tried to turn off my wifi, put it on airplane, turn off bluetooth and still nothing. Ive tried different qualities on youtube, nothing. Help?

Since i update iOS 8.3, iPhone 6 vibration is not working. it occurs a serious problem for using the device.

Requesting to share a solution on it.

I was a happy little camper with my iOS 7 until telemarketers bugged me beyond my tolerances. The best Apple advice was to introduce the irritant into my Contacts, give it a name like SPAM, etc, and then I could Block it. Isn't that a stupid, circuitous method to zap a problem? Is that good business? Worse business, and a reason why you help bloat Samsung sales is to have even more problematic "fixes". I installed 8.3 to affect said block. Fine. Now the 8.3 has rendered my beautiful iPhone 5 to soon accompany my old Nokia in a drawer due to: Power hungry background apps, sporadic ringer and vibration usage, and most onerous—when I get an email where someone needs a reply not a text—-I touch the reply and not a dad gum thing happens! Please, don't force me over to Samsung. Boss Lady loves it and is after me daily to switch. I want my iPhone 5 back! The battery issues are likely here to stay but if I cannot respond to emails while on the go, I won't be here to stay. How do I fix this email issue?

I'm a little cloudy on the answer to my issue.

Apple Released iOS 8.4 Update for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch **

Is this suggestion from Arun intended to be the end-all, fix-all for these issues?

The update notice in my Settings indicates the 8.4 will enhance music, etc. Well, I haven't graduated to music yet and if the update from ios 7 to 8, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3 sucks Icelandic lava rocks, what would be my incentive to TRUST 8.4? Why would I TRUST Apple with my choices in music? Apple has broken my trust and I want to see if they are interested or engaged enough to keep their customers. Not keep them deliriously happy, that's impossible. I want to know precisely and soon, how you are going to just keep them on board. There is your challenge. Thanks.

Since updating to the new iOS whenever I bring up iMessage to text someone there's been a grey recording bar it looks like in my text box and it covers up my text as I'm texting it. It's getting really irritating and I don't know how to get rid of it.

The same issue is happening to me with the gray box and recorded timer. And I'm sick of having to turn my phone on and off to get the box gone for a few minutes. I told myself not to update. I really hate my iPhone because of all the issues that come with your updates & sorry battery life. And only suggestion from Apple Store is get a new phone. I really think it's time to go back to Samsung. Apple get your sh*t together…!!!!…. Don't get a iPhone cause a year is to long for their phones to last…

I have the same issue with my fairly new 6 plus, grey bar with 0.00 that blocks view of text. Have to shut IPHoney off and restart to make it disappear. Since the last update, I've had to do this 7 or 8 times. Thanks Apple.

Mine too. I was hoping to find an answer on here but it looks like there is none. I wonder if I reset back to factory settings, will it go away and will I go back the last version before I updated? I waited months before I updated and finally gave in! Wish I hadn't.

i am using ipad mini first generation. After i update my ios to 8.3. Thr games i played keeps on auto turn off and i have to log in again. It happrns every 10 sec. It is giving me a headache, any solution for this?

Reset your device first and just press sleep button with power button until the apple logo appears for atleast 10-5 seconds the your device will reboot then there is no chance for app crash. And one most important thing I you just use refuse motion,and off the app refresh button ,and use refuse transperency please try this it will be useful to you thankyou.
