Yep..got my new Iphone 5s today…immediately updated to iOS 9.0.2 IT DIDN'T FIX ANYTHING!!! I STILL CANNOT SEND OR RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES!!!! Are you guys taking lessons on how to screw up an operating system from MICROSOFT OR WHAT???

My iPad says no charging when I put it on charging after the update. However, the charging seems to be actually happening.

I have a 5s and installed 9.0.2 hoping it would fix the problem with Messages where I see a grey bar with 0.0 in the field where I type, blocking my view of what I'm typing. The work around in 9.0 was to enable the Show Subject Line feature. However, this is not fixing the problem anymore. I see the grey bar as soon as I use the voice typing option from the keyboard and nothing I have tried will clear it. It is worse with .02 than it was with .01. I cannot delete the message without sending it. I hope this is being worked on at Apple and they will also add the option to delete a text before sending it. Just backing out and then returning to that contact doesn't work. There seems no way to avoid sending a text I may have made an error in.

Iphone 5 gamecenter will not open at all. It was random with 9 and 9.01 but 9.0.2 wont let it open which makes my games not work.

after updating to 9.0.2 both my iphone and ipad mini are not connecting to internet-game center not available-screen freezes- ran diagnostics on itunes and everything is fine but i cant do anything on either of them!

Oh boy!!! my iphone now is like a stone, so still and quiet bc there are no notifications sounds!!!!!!!!!!

I am not able to send messages to one particular person. Before I downloaded the 9.0.2, this was not a problem.

I'm having a problem with the screen rotation on my phone, it keeps wanting to go sideways when my phone is facing me north south… This is very annoying.

No txt alert sounds…2hrs now
Cant send or receive txt…2hrs now
Ironically i get txt alerts and incoming msgs as i right this at 1621 PST

I've spent last couple of days trying to solve this and am becoming increasingly frustrated! Since latest 9.0.2 update I've lost all sounds on my alerts – emails, texts, social media etc. When I go into settings there are no preview sounds either.

The only thing that is still working is incoming phone calls. I get the ring tone. However I'm unable to hear or speak to the caller without putting them on speaker!
I've tried everything; blowing into the headphone jack, sucking it, Q-tip, re-set, reverting to factory settings. NOTHING! Seeing all the problems I Phone has is enough to put me off getting another.

Since 9.0.2 update my iPad is damn near useless!! Apps open and close on their own, some apps won't close at all and device needs reset every time in order to close out the app, missing many apps from my Notification Center (eBay,etc..), interruptions while trying to post on Facebook, etc….. I've tried every type of reset there is, and basically tried problem solving for about 6 hours. Nothing worked. Worst iOS update I've ever seen. Beyond pissed off at this point. So far, I haven't had these issues on my 4s. Apple really needs to test updates better before releasing. When we buy $800 devices, we EXPECT them to work. Fed up with Apple!!!!

My 6 plus wont get txt and when i receive txt the phone dont realize that i read the message and wont mark it off notifications also it still shows 3 new messages on the message icon when i read them. Theres so many other issues i cannot type them all down since i upgraded to ios 9.0.2

Since I updated this 9.0.2 I've had nothing but problems A: No sound for music or on Video. B: When looking on sites like Google it suddenly goes back the home screen. C: when opening up Apps the screen goes blank until you hit the home button D: can't delete apps that I don't need anymore

My email always says one unread message but there is nothing there in any of my files even when I go log on line there is nothing. No text sounds since new up date as well as when I try to delete my texts it freezes the phone and I have to force shutdown and the messages are still there. Also my music still plays silently on my iPhone after leaving my vehicle killing the battery

This iPad is the first Apple product I ever owned – and it will be the last. 9.0.2 basically rendered my iPad useless. Everything (literally) takes twice as long to open – forget Netflix. It runs better on my old Windows XP computer than it does on my iPad. Email attachments have to be downloaded again everytime I want to view them – I use a lot of my own MP3 audio files. Now I cannot even use them unless I am connected to wifi to download them again everytime I need to use them. My old 2001 MP3 player is better than my iPad now. Read a book downloaded from the public library? Forget it.

After the 9.0.2 update when I turn on my wifi I see a good signal, but whenever it tries to connect to anything, rather than the usual icon showing the connection process, it shows up briefly, then disappears. Like a blip.
No matter the app (email, game, Internet) I receive the No Connection dropdown message in red at the top. After turning off wifi, the connection is fine.

All I get for sound, ANY sound including music and alerts, is this high-volume staticky screeching that is reminiscent of a cat being dragged by the tail across the top of a metal short-wave radio that's not completely on a station.

Seriously, just like that.

Volume adjustment does no good; it's always ear-splittingly loud, too. Any fixes?

After I updated my iPad mini I am unable to even set the iPad up. It says that it can't verify my account, so I changed the password and still no luck. It is officially a paperweight.

Ios 9 was better. I updated to 9.0.2 yesterday and notification sound is off, cant open App and itunes store in settings, my iphone is nw slow, Game Center wont open, sme applications crush and wont connect to e internet until I restart e phone

None of the photos I take save to the phone or cloud. When you go to the photos folder and try to edit it nothing gets deleted and keeps getting stuck in select mode if try to delete individually

My problem started before I even downloaded the ios9.2. My email isn't automatically refreshing like it used to. I went to settings and did what it told me to buy still not working. When I'm in my email it says downloading 1 out of 120 but never does it and then says updated 2 mins ago but nothing was. I need help to fix this it's really annoying.

I'm having the same problems with my sounds….my iphone 6 freezes all the time now and I have to reboot.
This update is really frustrating. The way that you close out apps now is weird too. They should be on top of the home screen not under it and they should stack to the right to make it easier to close or give us the option to change the direction if we are left or right handed. its awkward the way it is now. Just my opinion

After updating my iPad mini to 9.0.2 several apps freeze shortly after opening and become unresponsive. If I close and open again, they will work for a couple of minutes then freeze again. Ack!

Since I updated to 9.0.2 my IPhone 6 App Store opens and closes instantly. When I double click the home button the App Store is open in background. No way to open on screen.

My problems are a flaky wifi connection. Randomly slow for no reason. Kind of minimal compared to others, yet, very frustrating.

Headphone speaker (where you can hear a person calling you) went dead on 9.0.2! It stopped working on 8.4.1 and then mysteriously worked again when I upgraded to 9.0 and was fine in 9.0.1 – why did I ever update to this useless version! Going back doesn't seem to help either!!! Yikes.

Videos that i launch from links dont have audio, but if i launch from itube, they do. This started after 9.02 update

After upgrading to 9.0.2, my battery percentage doesn't work well! It may stay at some random percentage and stop increasing or decreasing. I need to restart my phone each time to see what is the actual battery percentage. I have the new iphone 6s. So disappointing!

Since the 9.0.2 update, when I send an iMessage to one of my contacts, it goes through two times. One iMessage and again as a text message. This is really irritating.
Also, I do not use Gamecenter, but every time I open one particular game it opens and prompts me to sign in. Isn't there a way to turn this off?

since installing 9.0.2 on my ipad the pictures I take on my phone no longer upload to the ipad. they upload to the mac computer but not the ipad.
Also, the kindle app does not sync. Previously if I read on my phone and then went to my ipad, it told me what page I was on and asked me if I wished to go to that page. Not anymore.

I don't see any contacts in my iPhone 5 after installing 9.0.2…everything was fine before installing the upgrade. Has anyone faced this issue?

I have the iPhone 4s and it used to work perfectly but now I installed iOS 9.02 the wifi doesn't work and the battery drains super fast

My game centre won't open my dragonvale game won't open since I downloaded 9.02 very disappointed.

Since both upgrades, in my personal and work email accounts, if I delete a message, a screen shows up after saying "can't move email" and they are back in my inboxes, only to have to delete them once again.

After updating to 9.0.2 Siri and audio messages won't pick up my voice but it works with any other app. Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, music.ly, FaceTime audio and video and even voice memo picks up my voice but not Siri or iMessage audio message. I've tried everything!

I am having the same problem! I was having it on 9.0.1, too. So, I updated to 9.0.2 because the update notes said it would fix this iMessage/Text Message problem, but it never did. Please fix this, it is really annoying!
Thanks (:

I have the iPhone 4s. This phone has worked perfectly fine until the iOS 9 update. I updated tonight to iOS 9.02, nothing that was screwed up is fixed. In fact, it's worse because I can't connect to anything using my cellular data, if it does load something , then it took it 5 minutes to load, at least. Grayed out text box in text messages, no sound, rotation issues. This is the worst update for my phone so far. Seriously thinking of throwing the thing in the lake and buying an android. I will not buy another apple product again especially after reading some of these issues are on purpose to force people to upgrade. Bite me apple.

I've had apps open and close on their own too. Once it starts, the phone then takes over a mind of its own and I can set it down and watch it type and then open other apps and start typing on its own there too. Have you experienced this as well?

My imessage isn't working when I text just ONE person, he gets my messages but on my phone it has the red exclamation point and says not delivered! This is so irritating. Why does apple always give their customers so many issues, I'm sick of it.

imessage will not show delivered. Then will eventually send as text. Apple says there is an authentication certificate issue – I had no idea what the "Senior tech" was explaining to me because it made no sense at all. Went thru all the fixes on the phone … nothing worked. Supposedly this authentication is supposed to work within 24 hours – now today my messages are sending DOUBLE and as text with a delay. I had no issues at all until the 9.0.2 Update.

Hi ,

My caller tone is completely silent. No sound on any notification. Touch pad sound , unlocking sound is also silent. But speaker works for music app.

Updated my iPhone 5s today to 9.0.2 My volume is OFF. Why am I hearing the bbm sound notification when I receive a text? Or when I turn my phone off, I hear the clicking sound, but my volume is OFF? Any one else with this issue? Otherwise, everything else is fine so far..

MY MESSAGES ISNT WORKING….I can send messages, but to one person it says they are all undelivered! UGH SOMEONE FIX THIS.

i have an IPhone4s, after upgrading to 9.02, problems start showing, game center not working, freezes all the time, most apps or games freezes too, well i tell u guys this new release is really screwed up big time

IOS 9.0.2. After putting in a headset, all hell breaks loose. Calls get ended abruptly, SIRI comes on uninvited (turned off, but then something called Voice Control takes it's place and I cant seem to figure out how to turn that off), Audible is damn near useless (jumps chapters, stops, repeats, etc). It's not an Apple headset, is that the problem?

Since downloading 9.02 upgrade on my iphone6 half my texts are undelivered and phone calls to non Verizon users won't go through. I've tried all the fixes I can find including changing settings, turning on and off Airplane mode etc. HELP! I use my phone constantly for business and this is trouble.

Just upgrade to iOS 9.0.2. Phone does not work, dials but no sound,
Transmitting or receiving. Phone also runs very hot and battery drains I less than 2 hrs. Help!

Music will not stop playing when I click pause button
On my iPhone 5s I have iOS 9.0.2 installed.
When I play music with the music app the music is hard to stop or start again.
When it is playing and I click the pause button the music continues to play. The icon changes into the play icon. When I click again, icon changes but music is continuing. Also scrubbing is not working. It just keeps playing. To stop I have to change song but then I see the song playing (time played) but no sound.
Podcasts app works fine.
What is going on?

While I'm texting there's a gray box in the text area with a 0:00 and I don't know what it is and it won't go away

I have an iPhone 6 and since I have upgraded to 9.0.2 I have the following issues:

1 – My photos I take doesn't save or show up in Photos
2 – I can't sync my phone on iTunes, it times out
3 – My videos on phone just shows the loading icon as if I'm watching it on a slow connection

My friend has an iPhone 5S and after 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 she has n problem and her phone shows "No service". Her phone is useless unless she is at a place of wifi

Help please

My app store notification for updates wont go away even when the apps are updated and deleted. I have rebooted the phone , made no difference.

Since 9.0.2:
– sometimes my passcode is not required. It should ALWAYS be required.
– sometimes, when I tap play on a video I have in my photo album, I get the loading symbol and nothing happens.
– sometimes I get a pop up window telling me I have no more storage space and can't take any more photos or videos and I have TONS of room!

Ugh. Next.

I have rebooted my iPhone, now the music app is working properly again.
Problems started probably when playing music over bluetooth speaker.

Since the last iOS 9.0.2 update my IPhone 6 Plus has no voice to text capability and no voice communication with Siri. I have turned Siri off and on, performed a reboot of my phone several times and even reset all setting and still nothing. I am finding nothing online supporting this problem. Hope you can help.

I have the 6S and after the update I cannot even turn my phone on. It is Dead. Plugged it back in to see if I accidentally didn't charge it and nothing. It is a nice looking paperweight. Back to the store I guess.

We all have iPhone 6. My daughters phone is skipping music files and seri comes up for no reason. My phone has a full charge then immediately displays low battery and turns itself off. Plug it into power, comes back on and battery magically full again. Some text are slow to be received and sometimes not received. At work a co worker forgot their keys and couldn't get into the building. they texted me, tried calling and I never heard any of it. They just had to wait till someone else arrived. We've paid way too much money to be having these kind of problems. Either they fix this or this will be my last iPhone. Hell, I work at a state school. We practice our intruder drills and we rely on our text messages for key instructions during a crisis. Guess we'll be making changes now.

Updated to iOS 9.0.2 about a week or so back. I am facing a strange issue. When the phone is facing screen-up and the phone rings, on the screen I can see the slide bar (to answer the phone call) and all is well. But when the phone is facing the other way (screen facing down) and somebody calls, post about 2/3 rings – the phone screen turns black but the ringer is still going on. So anybody faced this issue? Too damn frustrating.

Go to home screen. Tap twice on home button. Swipe up messages page that appears on home screen. Now restart messages and it should be ok. Just had that problem myself
Phil

None of my game apps work for more than a minute before the touch screen freezes. This I am sure is because of your numerous bugs with gamecenter. Please fix this asap

After installing 9.0.2, any photos I have on my iPad are showing larger than before in installed the upgrade. But only when I turn the iPad on its side (landscape). If I tap on the photo it doubles in size, which is normal, and then tap on it a second tome it shows in its proper size. How can I fit this problem?

I updated to iOS 9.0.2 to both my work iphone and personal iphone. Now I have an issue where both phones ring when I receive a call on either phone. I can't figure out how to stop it. This has never happened before until I updated to the new IOS…..frustrating as heck!

I get that too, I have to reset the message tab each time. It's frustrating. Hope 9.1 fixes it. Is there another solution?

since i update to ios 9.0.2 i get a bad issue it the weak wifi i have to sit in front of the router to get wifi signal wtf is that why this is happening to our iphones ?

I have the iPhone 6 Plus and updated the software and now every time I go to reply to a text message a gray audio thing is in the screen and won't allow me to see anything I type how many times per day do I need to restart my phone to fix this issue?? It's really beginning to get on my nerves and I am seriously thinking about switching to Samsung because it's ridiculous that I have to restart my phone 10 times a day to fix this and all Apple says is restart the phone that's their best solution

Since updating 4s phone thinks it's out of battery even though it's fully charged and shuts down unless connected to a power source. Apple says it's not the update but the main board. Anyone else having this issue?

I did the 9.0.2 update against my better judgment now my phone is locked on messenger. I can't power it off so I'm trying to drain battery to reboot that way. I paid way too much money to deal with this crap. Thinking about going back to Android…. Never had any problems there….

I have an iPad 4 and did the update. No big issues so far, but a little one. I can't see my volume bar anymore when I try to change the level. Can't tell if it's going to blast my ears off before I play a video

I did the update on my iPhone 6 and for some reason if I leave safari and am on fb and want to open something in safari instead of just viewing it on fb it closes out other Windows I had open without me wanting it too and also have the wifi connectivity issues as well as the power draining any ideas on when the new update to fix these issues is coming out?

Same issue for me. App Store shows notifications for updates, but when you open it up, there are no updates

Hi,
I upgraded my iPhone 5s to iOS 9.0.2 and now its eating away my cellular data at a ridiculous speed..even if I am not using my phone it eats away 30-40 MB data per 15-20 mins. I have deactivated Background App refresh for all my apps and the problem still persists. I have checked with my service provider and they say it isn't their fault and after reading all the reviews about new iOS I am certain it is to do with new version of iOS.
Second issue I am facing is, I can not see NEWS App icon on my homescreen. But if I go to settings>Cellular Data> I can see NEWS app in the list along with all the other Apps below "Use Mobile data for"
Pls help!

I'm having the same issues.. None of my apps seem compatible now with the 9.0.2 update and my internet connection is very SLOW.. Contacted TMOBILE and they were useless!!!

Have an iPhone 6 & recently updated to iOS 9.0.2 & having similar problem except slider bar won't work allowing me to answer calls! Have to do a hard reset periodically to stop this from happening & then after awhile it starts all over again!!!

Similar problem except after deleting emails, when I go back in, they're back as if I never deleted them!

I did the update also but Safari keeps showing that it encountered an error & is reloading the page. It does this constantly & sometimes closes completely! So frustrating!!!

I was hoping the upgrade might fix my bluetooth connection mystery. Alas it has just added new issues. My phone also decided to download every old read email I have ever been sent (4000 or so) and chew out all my data and cost me a fortune in excess data usage. Gee thanks apple! I also did not receive my current bills via email and thx to apple, my phone has now been cut off. Smashing job guys. I'd send you a text about it but I can't see to check it before sending as you have placed a nice little grey bar over my typing area, plus I now have to reconnect my phone. Go back to Steve Jobs mentality apple. The last thing the world needs is more errors like microsoft (I wish Bill would not call his appendage that!).
Get it together apple, don't release half finished unchecked software, there's no excuse it's just bad customer service.

I have iPhone 6 Plus update iOS 9.0.2 now I have notification issue some times it's vibrate and ring and sometimes no ring and vibrate

I have a 4s and the same issue for me since updating. Also, the emails from Yahoo come in with a loud sound, which I can't change. Tried but it ignores it. The emails from my other account have accepted the tone change and delete. Weird but not as bad as some of the comments I see on this page. Any input gladly received.
ps I deleted on Yahoo and then they disappear on my phone but that is a pain and I never had to do this before.

I didn't have any issues with my iphone until I updated to 9.0.2. Now it freezes all the time and I keep having to reset it. This morning it didn't want to come on at all.
Nice fix

try this:

if you're going over your data limit, it's more likely because of bad settings — not WiFI-Assist. In the almost three months I've been using iOS 9, I have never seen it kick on — even when I was on an overloaded network and wished that it would. Unless you live or work somewhere that has a really poor Wi-Fi signal, then it's safe to leave it on. If you insist on turning it off, you can by heading to Settings —> Cellular and scrolling all the way to the bottom.

I got the solution friends if u replace your battery u can come out of that problem did it and it's worked

Go to settings > Cellular> scroll all the way down to
the bottom and turn off Wi-Fi Assist.

This should take care of this issue.

Hope this helps

I either get no notification sound from text messages or they come thru with the volume cranked to max even the the volume toggle is only up maybe 25%. Very annoying

I installed 9.0.1 on my 5. I can not longer sync since I have windows XP. Anyone else having this issue? Is there a fix?

I tried every singke thing to fix this issue, my battery is just charged when i go to bed, whenever i wake up after 6 ou 7 hours it's like 10%. Like, on stand by, and airplane mode? Really! I hated this update sooo bad. I tried to restore, with and without backup, tried to change settings, screen, deleted all my apps, nothing worked. I got a 5s, but wanted to throw it on the garbage.

I'm having the same issue what do we do we should not have to pay apple when the issue is caused by them

You need to exit out of the message app and reopen it and the grey bar should be gone. That's the only thing that has worked for me short of restarting the phone. I don't think we should even have to exit out of it to fix it. The damn thing shouldn't do this on the first place. Anyone know why it's doing this? Anyhow just do a double click on the home button where it shows all the apps that are open and swop away the message app. Then click the home button again and reopen messages, and voilá. Clear text box. This problem is still bullshit. I just had to restart my 5s bc the grey pull down screen got stuck halfway down and nothing I did made it go back. This is by far the worst update I've ever seen. Never in my life have I seen so many bugs from an apple IOS update. ABSOLUTE BULL$h1+. Hope this helps ya though so you can at least see what the heck you are typing in the text field on your messaging app.

I think someone owes us money for screwing up our phones. This sucks we pay big money for this phone. There better be a solution soon.

What iPhone do you have? 5s and later require a thumb print. It could be reading your print instead of a passcode? Mine randomly requires a passcode and always requires thumb and passcode after a reboot. Probably not what you meant but I thought I would give you my 2¢. Good luck.

Restart the message app- no need to restart the entire phone.

– double click the home button.
– scroll to the messages app and swipe if out(clear it, close it, etc.)
– click home button to return to home screen.
– reopen messages app. Problem solved.

Should this be a problem we have to finagle to fix? No. This is the result of poor programming and lazy follow through. Wt heck happened to apple. Never seen an update this botched. And for some reason I still want all apple products…. Apple has taken over my brain with their sleek sexy technology and it makes me so angry b/c I still love their products even though the programming sucks so bad! Why do you do this to us Apple? Have you no respect for the memory of Mr. Jobs? Dang man!

This my first time getting a I phone and everything is unhappy email is loading back and fw number going down and up and when I try to look at my e mail some of them is saying not download and this gray line with 0:00 in my text bar what's sup with that and it's slow on my internet I mean it take like 10 min to get to the next page and apply need to lighting up because all this extra stuff y'all put on here y'all need to make this phone download stuff instead of going to u r computer and doing everything on your computer it be better if you can doing from your phone and why you have all the free bs to download and have all the good stuff to download and when you buy it and it's so funny it's still don't work so you need to make it free bad enough we pay so much for this phone every thing should be from like Samsung got me thinking why I came to apply I should had just wait it to the Samsung 7 came out next yr now all my information I have on my Samsung can't move my stuff over to my apply sucks like I said why do all this ft and can't do what you really want I think Samsung need to be together with apple and fix all your bugs before giving us updated to download

I'm having this same issue with my iphone6s/iPad. It's not allowing me to update/purchase new apps. Any clue on how to fix this?

I have no sound notifications for any apps since I updated to iOS 9.0.2. I had disabled them and put them into vibrate mode for a day and when I returned them to sound mode, there is no sound for any app. I have shut my phone down and restarted and there is still no sound at all for notifications on my iPhone 6. My husband is having intermittent problems with the same alerts on his iPhone 6 Plus and he also upgraded to 9.0.2.

I too have no voice from SIRI when I updated to 9.0.2. I also have no sound with maps when using it as a gps.

Hi,
Today I upgraded iOS to 9.0.2 on my iPhone 5s but I can't send voice message in Facebook messenger. Could you please help me out in this regard.

Thanks

My wife's 5 day old iPhone 6S+ shuts down completely while being charged overnight-so no alarm in the morning. I upgraded my iPhone 6 to iOS 9.02 yesterday-same thing happens top me. In both cases after rebooting phone it shows its 100% charged. Is this a known problem with iOS 9.02 ?

We all can't be suffering this range of issues, Apple. You need to do a fast fix that will introduce solutions to all these problems. I have no sound and have missed calls, texts, etc. THIS IS SO ANNOYING!

I have the same issue with the gray bar. Exiting out of the message app and opening back up does not help. I have to completely restart my phone! Very very irritating. Internet crashes, apps crash…. What next!

After upgrading my iPhone 5 the add to album function in photos isn't working. Instead of opening the albums page once I select the images and click on add too it closes the photos application.

My battery drains unbelievably quickly – I have turned of the location services and checked other "behind the scene" things and still doing it.

AND – since the upgrade – If my phone is on wifi then I cannot use wifi on my laptop or apple tv

Since the iOS 9.0.2 upgrade, my iPhone 4S intermittently does not receive messages sent to my gmail address: I've had several messages today that show up in Mail on my MacBook, but not on the iPhone — I've had no gmail updates on the phone since 7:30 am this morning.
Also, the search function in the iPhone's Mail app seems to be broken, in two ways: 1) It no longer seems to search my mailboxes for messages from the person I've entered in the search field. Instead it just displays their contact card. (If there is no contact card, then it displays mail.) 2) It starts searching and then hangs with the progress bar barely started.
Actually, as I've just found out, it WILL display results of the search, after you choose a contact card — but it takes about A MINUTE before anything appears. Until just now, I've assumed it was completely broken. Now, I know it's just completely f**ked up compared to the previous version. How do I downgrade??

After updating my 5c to iOS 9.0.2 I have a few problems but one that I have not been able to fix is my ringtones. It won't play ringtones that I purchased from iTunes. My iTunes ringtone is marked as the selected ringtone in Settings and Notifications but it plays the default ringtone instead. I can't find any fix. Any suggestions?

Oh and crazy thing is that it was playing the purchased ringtones before I turned my phone off and back on today (because I needed to clear another problem with a gray bar in my text screen).

I just downloaded ios9.0.2 my apps is installing very slow I never had this problem with any other updates for apples but this one is the worst can you help me I'm having a problem installing all apps

Cheers???

Okay, is anyone else having this problem?!

I have an iPhone 6 and when I try to call my sister or mom, it kicks to voicemail, though their phone is on, or it won't even connect and it says "call failed." I don't understand what's happening? They also have iPhones

Was working fine til I upgraded to 9.0.2! Now I'm not getting text notifications and missing a lot of messages! It will work for ONE message after I turn off then turn it back on. cmon Apple – the updates are supposed to FIX issues – not cause them!

Every time I go to my apps it immediately closes back out. When I open my messages it will randomly vibrate and tell me I never sent them or received them. And in messages or contacts it will not display the contact pictures in the little bubble. Please help.

When I downloaded upgrade ios 9.0.2 to my I Pad AIR Safari slowed right down and continually had to reload web sites. I discovered the " block pop-ups" was activated. When I allowed pop ups the problem disappeared. I now get notice of a pop-up wanting to load and I have a choice.

I just updated to 9.0.2 and I can't play or text any older videos either. They better fix this – I'm so sick of being used as a Beta for technology.

I am having a similar problem on iPhone 5 since upgrading to ios 9.0.2. Voice Control turns itself on spontaneously at various times during various activities and WILL NOT TURN OFF! This most recent time, when I tried to turn it off, it chose a random number from my Contacts and initiated a call–which it would not let me stop! This is frustrating and crazy-making. I've tried resetting the phone – several times – which stops Voice Control for awhile but the unwanted intrusions are still happening. Help!

I have iPhone 4S upgraded to ISO 9.0.2 what a mistake Apps stop running mid process, battery charge less than 6 hours when before upgrade 15 hours, screwed up text window worst upgrade since MS Windows 8! How do you down grade to older ISO?

I have a very well taken care of near mint 5s. Updated to iOS 9.0.2, now no flash or flashlight. I am sick and tired of Apple updates disabling phones. When 7.x.x came out, I tried to put it on my 4s. It killed my WIFI. When I called Apple, they refuse to help. They take no responsibility for the damage their updates do. At least VW admitted when they screwed up. If I were a conspiracy buff, I'd say that Apple is essentially disabling phones that are a few years old so they can sell more phones. Has anyone else lost flash by updating?
I seriously recommend NEVER updating an out of warranty phone. You will always be on your own and they will not help. Time to buy a Droid. Doing so tomorrow.

I updated to IOS 9.0.2. Netflix won't work. It,s greyed out and intalling won't complete. Help I am using an ipad2. Thanks Karen

Iphone 5s, 9.0.2 I can't stop music when connected to bluetooth in my Mazda CX9. It connects and randomly plays music. I keep the bluetooth on for Waze. Even though music is playing the app doesn't show when you double click unless you first go into music and play a piece from there. Then the music app shows and can be swiped off. BUT, the next time Waze gives a direction the music comes back on several seconds later. Again the app is not visible on double-clicking

After installing 9.0.2 I no longer have any ring tones for messages or texting. Have also lost all ringtones for phone calls. In addition to that mess,all msg and texts now show as an alert on the screen.

same thing happens to me with my iPad. It is fully charged at 100 percent and after I use it for an hour or so and close the cover, with 80%left, when I wake in the morning it is completely drained. Any help would be appreciated. Apple …help!!

1. No text message notification tone
2. Siri works but no sound/voice
3. No voice/sound on turn by turn directions on map app

Yet, all games, music, phone, video, and other sounds work

delay in starting the game center in ios 9.0.2 and some games not work like need for speed no limit the devise is IPad mini 2

First time have issues with my iPhone! After ios9.0.2. Facebook messenger keeps crashing. Now Imessage can t read messages. Viber not working. Safari keeps crashing. Even after a hard reboot! Can see notifications in Apple Watch but can t read any messages in my iPhone!

Same here! So frustrating!!! Texting is my main way of communicating throughout the day. Now I can't. This is why ppl don't do Apple updates. It's always some fu*kup! I avoid them as long as I can because I know it will always be a mess! Get it together, Apple. Jesus!!!!!

Totally agree. My 4s worked beautifully until the update. Then it became a trainwreck so I was forced into a 5s. Seriously, Apple, are you that desperate for $$ that you have to screw your own customers!!??

I have changed my Notification Center settings several times but for some reason when I get texts or iMessages (despite my settings) they do not appear in the Notification Center. Also what happened to the 5 notification limit where it only showed the 5 most recent notifications? I can't find t anymore!! Any help would be great. Thanks

You can swipe from your home page from left to right, and use the search bar in spotlight..not perfect, but it's all I can find..

Same here – no voice on turn by turn navigation. Too afraid to upgrade to ios 9.1 in case it's even worse.

Go to SETTINGS>PHONE> look down to the second item (under "Calls") and select "Calls on Other Devices" This will list your other I-devices that share the same I-cloud account and are eligible to simultaneously ring and respond to calls made to your other I-devices. Once on this screen you can turn the feature on or off and select which other devices you want to be eligible for call sharing.

-my Siri keeps on going off when I don't press anything constantly and it's the worst
-I'm not getting text nonifications
-my music keeps on going in unexpectedly
Thanks

Since I updated my iPad yesterday, any recorded messages/speeches I listen to from different web sites or organizations, keep skipping back to the beginning – they won't play clear through. Never happened before the update – I've checked several websites and it's happening with all of them.

I'm having the same issue! I thought I was the only one! Hope there's a solution soon, it's so annoying!

If anyone knows how to fix please help!!!

After upgrading to 9.0.2, the volume for all of my voice memos on my 5s is barely perceptible. Please help.

My iPhone 4s recently got dropped (Saturday) and has a small crack in the left corner but not on the screen. It was fine for a few days apart from the crack. Two days ago the home button stopped working and then today the notification banner is stuck half way down my screen and i am unable to do anything with my phone. I cant turn it off as the banner is in the way of the slide to turn off bit and I cant hold the home button and lock button as the home button doesn't work. I need my phone as it is a vital part if my job.
Help please!! Thanks in advance.

Hi I recently did an update on my iPhone 6plus and since doing the update am experiencing problems with a grey flickering at the top of my screen, the phone then has a mind of its own, resulting in random texts being sent to my contacts, phone calls being made, unable to answer calls coming in, deleting of apps etc. I have spoken to apple and they advised me to back up my phone and completely wipe and restore my phone and assured me that this would resolve my issues as they were software related, that if my problems continues that my phone was the problem and I have to pay to get it repaired, I did this to find my phone has got worse. I don't feel I should pay because until I did an update my phone was fine. Any suggestions.

Since the update my phone wont ring and all calls go to voice mail. When I check the sound settings my preferred ringtone is checked but when I play it, it sounds like a machine gun going off or no sound at all. Does it with any ringtone I select. I have to turn my phone off and reboot and it usually works until it goes out later.

I also had to call VirginMobile and obtain the code to reset the "radio" in my phone as I couldn't call out at all., every outgoing call the phone would beep twice and the call would end.

I think Apple may deliberately doing some o fthis so that many of us with older phones will buy new ones. Apple produces are overpriced. Ridiculous game.

SInce installing the latest update on my IPhone, I am unable to send emails from the phone – anyone have any thoughts?

Since installing the update on my IPad, the automatic reply on my email has said "loading", and I havent been able access email. Additionally, it won't let me delete the email account to reinstall it. So I am stuck in never land…. Help!

Hold the power button and the home screen button for about 10 seconds and then it should turn off and restart itself I had the same problem and that how I done it

Updated my 5s to 9.0.2. When I play an mp3 audio attachment, the playback pauses with 1 minute auto lock. So once the screen goes dark to conserve battery, I can no longer play the file until I awaken the screen. Prior to the update, I could play audio files without interruption even after the screen goes dark. Now I must play in 1 minute increments or disable the auto lock feature altogether. This problem presented immediately after update to 9.0.2. and did not correct itself after rebooting.

I downloaded the new iOS 9.0.2 last night and now all Facebook notifications are coming through my iPhone 4s. Help how do I stop this, I went to settings and turned off the Facebook messages and it's still continuing to do it, this is nuts it's driving me crazy!!!

Same problem on the 6s. REALLY pissing me off because I make my own music and also critique other artists music before they put it out to the world and email is normally how I hear it. Now what to do when the screen locks? Or like If im writing a song in the notepad while the email is open on another screen? FIX. NOW. :evil:🖕🏽

When i call or receives a call the screen of phone gets off
without even putting phone near to my ears and it dont
came back immediately after ending the call. The screen
came after some time.Would you plzzzz help me in solving
this problem

The problem I'm having with the update is my camera, websites, and some other places only working in the sideways view, as if I was holding my phone sideways instead of up and down. It will even do this if I have my phone locked in the up and down position so that it shouldn't rotate.

Since updating my phone last night I don't seem to have any photos , how do I get them back as they are memories I cnt get back from my children.

Since the update my baterry charges so slow. It was never like that before.. And I saw that since the ios9 update. when I post a photo on Facebook from the app, it goes in a new folder named " From my phone" and not in the Ios Folder I had before…

I have never had problems with my iphone 6 plus, had my phone over a year, until yesterday. I get a random error message saying about an accessory not being compatible with this device, even though it is not plugged into anything. I only charge my phone at end of the day, & only use my iphone charger, but it was doing this error message repeatedly. & i noticed that before i get a message whether it be imessage or whatsapp, my screen would light up for a minute, then a message would come through. & my screen randomly lit up. I don't know if these problems are to do with the new update, but i have never had problems with my phone.

Bridget,
Same here,when I download Pics to Ebay,they all come up Sideways,before the update a few did,but now all do.The Ebay crop/ rotate/edit feature is no longer available either,I thought it was the site,buts the feature is still there on my PC,just not my IPad 2,and of course vanished right after the Upgrade.

I'm having the same thing, i also make my own music, email myself an mp3 of one of my songs so i can play it in the car and it keeps stopping, its really irritating

My phone is doing the EXACT same thing with the ringtone! it even does it now with my alarms and now sometimes it won't play video with sound. I don't understand why its doing this!

My phone I think randomly used the microphone texting feature to make a conversation, and send it the issue is it was super offensive.

Anyone ??

iphone 6s
1. controls for privacy settings / location services on but grayed out – can't adjust, can't add facebook or gmail permissions to access photos
2. Settings – after upgrade to this phone from 4s old phone's settings are turned on but grayed out, can't adjust any settings
3. background app refresh items turned on but grayed out, can't change any settings

I have the same issues as all of the other issues. Plus I cannot delete one specific recent call bit keeps popping back after I hit delete. This is buzzard and require apples attention.

ever since I updated, if I'm playing music that is an attachment from my email if my screen goes dark or I click out of the email app, it stops.

Same problem here. iPhone 4S. Upgraded to 9.2 today and lost the ability to leave the email screen or turn off screen without it stopping playback. Insane.

Me too guys and it's a real pain! I use that function for work all the time and now the file stops when I try to access any other apps!! WTH?

Hope someone can reply with a fix!

The volume no longer works on videos, music, or websites (like youtube) but Siri is fine. I do not have the ability to change the volume with the side buttons…when I press the side volume buttons the square with the volume doesn't come up on the screen.

I have the exact problem. As a songwriter, this is annoying when trying to play back music to singers. If you hear a solution, please pass the info along.

I have the same issue. I read a kindle book on my iPhone 6 plus, then later when I switch to my iPad Air 2, the iPad Air 2 does not know which page I read to on the 6 Plus. However, if I am reading on my iPad Air 2 then later switch to my iPhone 6 Plus, it syncs up like it should. Why won't my iPad 2 Air sync.

My phone won't play the audio part of a video that was sent to me via text. The video plays but the sound won't. I have turned the volume all the way up and even tried turning it all the way down..
Any suggestions??

I have the iPhone 5 and so, maybe that can be the problem, but I have gray bars on the top of my iPhone. I can't see any of my notifications. It doesn't drag down. I restarted my phone so many times, but nothing is happening. I never dropped my phone. I don't know what the problem is… PLEASE HELP!

My iPad has had a lot of issues since the latest iOS update. I touch the icon to open almost anything and it takes several times before the email or Facebook or messenger or app comes up and then it comes up and immediately disappears. Getting very annoying, been patiently awaiting a fix for this, but it doesn't seem to be forthcoming in a timely fashion. Several apps won't reload, I've notified developers. I've tried the off and on of my iPad and the reset (not the hard reset as I don't wish to lose my data). One app in particular called Recipe Pad has my recipes in it and I'm holding a class tomorrow that I need 2 specific recipes for. Not very happy with technology at this point and thinking it's better to go back to old fashioned method of hard copy recipe cards.

Hi,i m unable to see the Face time app on my home screen, i checked in restriction, its on face time and camera, i reset the phone and updated lasted version, in settings unable to find face time app but i can see the app in restriction. Can You Please help on this my I phone 5s. Thanks!

My phone will ring and when answered it continues to ring even though it shows it connected to the call. Then when I call someone they can not hear me and I can't hear them. It started once I did the soft wear update of 9.0.2…. Very upset and apple won't do anything without me paying $200. My phone JUST hit two years old and I paid over $700. It seems Apple went to crap any more. Customer service and product.

I have a iphone 5s. I cannot send videos via text or email because it states they are too long/too large. I've done this before. It is so annoying that I can't send a 1-2 minute video! What the hell Apple?

My iPhone 6s has just recently started doing this. It being my alarm clock and the way I wake up, is a concern. If my phone is locked, and an alarm goes off, there is no sound, the screen stays black, and will no longer open. It vibrates the whole time. It won't open for Touch ID, the home button, nothing. I have to restart it in order to make the vibrating stop and to use my phone.

My issue with syncing seems to have gotten better. I am now on version 9.2.1. However, one thing I have done that may also help is, when I stop reading, I put a bookmark and then close the app. That seems to help it sync better.

1. Deleted emails reappear and I have to delete a few times for them to really be gone; and

2. Viber new message icon says I have, for example, 5 new messages, when I only have 4; 3 when 2; 2 when 1; etc.

Both only started happening in the last 2 weeks or so.

iPhone 6s; latest iOS

Yea now I can't sent texts or iMessage. And my internet randomly looses connection. This update did nothing but break my phone. It's a 5s that works fine until an update comes out in notifications. Then the problems come until I download it. Never buying another apple product again. Either fix this crap or I'll spend my money on something that doesn't drop important technical instructions sent via text before an update and then disabled txt completely after the update

My new iPhone 6 is doing the same thing. My phone vibrated but the screen stayed black and I couldn't wake it up. Plugging into charge made the screen go from black to white, with the apple logo. After leaving it for 20 minutes, it was fine. I could have slept through an important wake-up alarm, and know now not to trust the iPhone.

What can I do?

Did the most recent iOS update 9.3.1, and now having issues with my phone. The phone rings on my end, but callers hear an old "rotary" style ring once and then hear silence even though the phone continues to ring on my end. Help!

My iPad mini won't let me play games because it says my clock is off. My friend has the same issue

I just purchased my phone about 2 months ago. Recently none of my apps have been responsive. If I'm using an app it just closes me out and I'm back on my home screen. When I get messages, I see them then it kicks me out of the app and I go back and the messages are gone. If I try to send a message, it fails to send or it sends then it tells me that it failed to send.

After updating ipad 2 to this forced upgrade rendered ipad useless. Will go to connect to itunes screen .. give error 4014 code.. goes thru update then when attempting to connect with ipad goes to battery with red symbol as tho low on charge..This sucks..worked perfectly fine before update,

My iPhone 6 Plus also has this happening to it a lot of the time also! (I switched to an Apple phone about a year and a half ago and I've had more issues than I ever did with any android phone I ever owned, it's a big disappointment!! ☹️️

Did you ever solve this problem. I'm having the same thing and it's making me crazy. Bobby
