Since update everytime I make a call the phone drops to 4G and drops calls or is silent. It also stopped ringing for some of my incoming calls. Please how do I try and fix this?

Incoming calls rings once then goes to voicemail, trouble people hearing me on calls. Apple needs to sort themselves out and quickly. This is very annoying.

The 8.4 update is supressing all volume related activities on iPhone 5s. No ringtone, touch tone keypad, etc. Yes it has been rebooted

Like another user said, "after the update the earpiece volume has suddenly dropped, despite the volume indicator is at the maximum level. Now I can barely hear who I'm talking to. I can hear people just fine on speaker and over earphones.
Any ideas? :)) thank you!

Hi..i'm having the same issue on Iphone 6….. feeling bored…i cant hear almost nothing…grrrrrrrrrrrrrr….

I'm having the same problem. The earpiece volume has dropped and people are having a hard time hearing and I'm having a hard time hearing them. I'm also being told that my voice keeps going in and out. I'm also experiencing battery drainage and many dropped calls.

Hi everyone,

After updating to iOS 8.4 and having my Music app changed, some songs disappeared. Even deleting the whole album and syncing it again from iTunes won't get the songs back in my iPhone 5S. While, of course, on iTunes they're there with no issues. A few of the albums involved are from the iTunes Store, and if I go to the Purchased section of my account, the songs are there, but the ones that I don't get synced on my iPhone have the cloud icon in grey. I can't download them. Some other songs are from albums imported on iTunes from a physical disc, so I don't think it's an issue related to the Store itself… Also, it happened a couple times that I started playing an album, and 30 seconds into the first song, it stopped. Just as if I was receiving a call, but of course no call was coming in. I have also found a problem with the power button. It is fine, it doesn't have any "mechanical" issue, yet sometimes I press it to lock the screen, it locks, I then put the phone on the table, and the screen turns back on showing the shut down page, the one on which you have to slide to power off. Just as if the power button was kept pressed….
I do hope to get an update to fix these bugs as they're really annoying. My iPhone is almost new, just fell once many months ago, but nothing broke, and if it did I should have noticed issues even with the previous iOS versions…

I'm not actually sure if I updated to iOS 8.4 but when I unlocked my phone earlier today, before unlocking it, a notification was on the screen that said activation required and then after I unlocked it a screen came up that said update successful and I connected to wifi and then I think it was trying to connect to cellular data or something and it wouldn't work and so I kept doing the try again button and it still didn't work after a while. And then it said if it didn't work try connecting to iTunes but then iTunes said that it couldn't activate my phone so I powered my phone down all the way and now it won't turn back on.

since updating to iOS 8.4 I'm having many difficulties. The battery on my iPhone 5s and iPad are draining quickly. Several apps, such as Google and game apps, close unexpectedly or take too long to open. My iPad no longer makes alert sounds for email, text, etc. even though the sound settings are correctly set. I also cannot send photos via text.

I have to say, try making a backup in itunes, then do a full restore (it will delete all data), then restore your backup. i have recommended this to several friends and they told me it works.

After upgrade NO EMAIL app "except" Apples built in will send notifications to the locked screen when an email comes in!! I have tries 3 others after Outlook stopped working after the upgrade. This upgrade was not good for me….

Since updating my phone to ios 8.4 I have lost purchased music and ringtones.
Some music I have been able to download again but not all. Only one of my 10 purchased ringtones appear on my phone or I tunes. I have tried several suggestions and still not working….very frustrating especially when I have paid for these through I tunes and it is not showing in my purchase music since updating my phone and the new I tunes on my computer.

Navigate to Settings ->Music and turn off Show Apple Music.
Then go to Settings ->iCloud and turn off iCloud Drive.
Then synced with Computer and everything will came back.

After I updated to IOS 8.4 I've noticed that everyime I try to delete a message or a conversation the messages app will freeze and crash. After that I open it and every message is cleared and it bring up the prompt to start a new conversation. After hard rebooting my phone the messages come back. It is just a very annoying issue that needs to be fixed ASAP

I actually downgraded to 8.3 (before Apple stopped signing it – this won't work now). But then I found the backup I'd taken (on 8.4) wouldn't restore to my new 8.3 installation. So I ended up setting up 8.3 as a new iPhone and then rather than go through all my settings again I just decided to allow it to update to 8.4 again and restore my backup. However, once I had restored my backup I decided to try a 'reset all settings' to see if that made a difference (so I had to set everything up from scratch again anyway!). Since then I've had no problems with 8.4 at all.

Therefore, it seems that an upgrade from 8.3 to 8.4 may be causing problems, but 8.4 itself might be OK. To all those having problems, it might be worth trying to reset all your settings. (Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings). Of course, this will mean you'll have to set everything up again, which is time consuming, but it might be worthwhile. Make sure you back up first just in case you find you do need to restore, but I would recommend setting up from scratch rather than restoring the backup. Hope this helps someone.

I updated my 5s on 7/11, during the update I had to restore my phone 3 times. Now when on a call the phone will open random apps, turn the speaker on, call other people in my contacts or just start dialing numbers. Is there a fix for this?



Same for me — battery draining issues as well as touch screen sensitivity issues, too, since going to iOS 8.4 on my iPhone 5.

Instagram push notifications not working since IOS 8.4, when I try to go into the settings I get an error message.

I cant activate the iMessage since 8.3. When I updated I thought it will be fixed but it still not working. And now my phone won't vibrate for anything, alarm/chat/incoming calls/plugging to charger… Literally anything. Was trying all of the tips on this site but it still not working at all. Using iPhone 5 and almost frustated.

I am noticing after this update I can no longer play YouTube videos via Safari while the phone is locked. Using the pull up music navigation no longer works with YouTube. The "play" button is there, but nothing happens when it's pushed.

When I am on my phone and I get a text message the banner pops up as it used to. Since the update the keyboard pops up on the screen automatically (which is annoying as well) but, even after pulling down the notification, I can't use the keyboard to reply.

Right before I posted this I switched my text notifications to alerts so I'd get the pop up box. I just got a text message, tried to reply in the pop up alert box and then had to close what I was doing with the home button because the box to close the message was under the keyboard, tapping outside the box didn't work and the keyboard didn't work there either. This is annoying.

I've been having that problem where it gives the text banner and a preview, which I deactivated. Then if I don't reply on the keyboard, the text disappears from my Notification Center. Have you found out how to fix this?

I have my notifications set to alerts and sounds for things like snapchat, but nothing ever pops up!! it doesn't ever tell me when I get a snap which is very frustrating !

After updating to 8.4, my phone freezes constantly. I have a new phone and it is extremely annoying! I wish I wouldn't have updated. I reset all my settings and it's still freezing all the time. 🙁

After updating my iPhone to ios 8.4 , the wifi keeps on turning on and off, I can't even finish a single download of an app from the App Store. I tried many solutions from the net, and none of those helped me solve the wifi problem.

ios 8.4 doesnt give any notifications in all application like whatsapp messenger .msg …
i open my whatsapp through 3g i find msg came without anu notifey

My purchased Ringtones stopped working after I upgraded to IOS 8.3 and again to 8.4. My solution turned out to be simple, but I wasted time trying other solutions. All it took was to purchase any new Ringtone and then all of my old ringtones started working again.

I hope this helps others. And it isn't complicated. Plus, who doesn't need more ringtones ???

My iPhone 5 after iOS 8.4 update goes into a funk at random times: Ringer Silent mode and Ringer Silent alert will come on screen, and the phone will do the silent ring/vibrate when I haven't event touched the Ringer Silent lever on the left side of the phone! Really annoying! Last night when it launched into this funky Ringer Silent jig by itself, I slid the screen open to key in my code, and it locked into the Ringer Silent screen. No buttons I pushed would unlock it. So I let the battery die overnight and then recharged it afresh this morning. It was fine for a little while and seemed back to normal for an hour, then it STILL goes into the random Ringer Silent jig on its own. rrrrrrrggggghhhh!!!!

Since I updated to iOS 8.4 I haven't been able to play ANY videos (Facebook, snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, any) and when I'm trying to use an app my phone has been freezing for between 5 and 10 seconds every single time I scroll on the app. I also have a lot of trouble connecting to wifi even when I know I'm putting in the correct information. PLEASE FIX.

Iphone 6 plus default alarm system is still bugged.. constantly changed, and reset. nothing seems to work. really frustrating..

After upgrading to 8.4 i dont recieve push-notifications neither on my iPhone 6 noe my ipad. In The app setting for notification it only says: "oops, an error occured."

iPad Mini – just completed the 8.4 update and keep getting a message when I access the screen to add more cellular data to my plan. I only use in wifi and have never activated the wireless. I have the cellular turned off on the settings tab as well. Any idea how to fix? I see it every time I pick up my mini to use it. Argh!

iPhone 5c and updated to 8.4 last week. Since then my clock has been off. Currently it's says 10:02pm aug 6th when it's really 6:54am aug 7th even though it's supposed to automatically set the time. Even when I manually set it the time ends up off. The wifi keeps dropping when every other device in the house works fine, and when I go into settings to try and fix whatever is happening, the phone freezes.
I've tried everything I can find online to fix the issues with no resolution.

I upgraded to ios 8.4 on my iPhone 5c. Prior to that I've lost some music I purchased but with the update did not get them back. But my biggest gripe and I don't know if its a coincidence is that my emails are going missing. The other day it completely wiped my inbox. When I got emails again it will continually delete automatically. OMG this is maddening. does this have anything to do with the upgrade or could it just be my personal server? Please advise. I'm not so great with technology.

Thank you.

With the iOS 8.4, the CALL FORWARD in my IP4S totally not able to call forward. Whenever the forward number is keyed and click BACK, the CALL FORWARD keeps turn off by itself.

What's the solution ?

Google maps is all screwed up!!!!! I drive for a living….. So….. *shrug* how can I fix this? I deleted the app and re downloaded; it downloaded the beta version…. Making it even WORSE! Help! Why do you guys keep breaking stuff? If it works; don't fix it! I am so pissed of I am looking at android. Seriously. I need to fix this.

Since upgrading to the new system my music which I bought through the iTunes Store not App Store will not play without a wifi connection! Please fix these issues!

This is so annoying! Every time I type a message in imessage the keyboard freezes! What do I do!? I tried resetting my phone, but nothing has helped..:(

After iOS 8.4 update (about a month) my Siri got deleted. I can't open it anymore. It's no more in my settings and idk what to do. Please help me.
