Since updating to 9.2.1 I have real issues with phone calls . If my phone rings and I answer it , it just keeps ring for extra 10 secs and I can't hear anyone nor can they hear me . If I make a phone call it will ring their end but the can't hear me nor can I hear them . Sometimes if I receive a call there is a loud hissing ur clicking sound . I have factory reset the phone and it's still the same. Sometimes it will work ok if I use headphone .. Apple iPhone 5c ..

I had a similar issue after the update. I could receive calls and the caller could hear me. However all I could hear was interrupted voise from the caller. It was completely unintelligible. Power cycling the phone resolved this issue.

I updated my phone and it is in worse shape than it was to begin with! phone cannot hold a charge even with features turned off! how can the phone lose battery while on the charger!?!?!?!? rethinking continuing using apple products if this isn't fixed.

Since i updated to ios 9.2.1 my watsapp crashed. It kept going to the main page even while i am typing the message. Made matter worst, whatever i was typing just vanished and i have to retype. If its a long message, i have to draft in my note pad, cut and paste under watsapp.

It switched to mainpage so quickly that i could not read my messages in my watsapp chat rooms.

Pls help

I am experiencing sound only if I had headphones plugged in. When I unplug them it is still in headphone mode. Or when I have a Bluetooth speaker in. I have tried restating my phone but it is stuck.

Same problem as Travis here. I have no sound coming out of the speaker except every now and then when iPhone 'feels like it'. I tried resetting the phone several times and also checking settings but nothing fixes the problem. Is it a software issue or hardware issue? Any advice?

Travis I had this problem once on an iPhone and also on a Mac. The problems were both the same. There was something going on with the headphone socket. Inserting and removing a headphone jack a few times and the problems were resolved. A strange one indeed.

Also, if you are not already doing so, you should try this with the original apple headphone set. I've had issues with other types as well.

iphone 6. just starting this week, i can't send SMS texts to non-iphone uses and/or receive them. currently messaging via iMessage or whatsapp. tried finagling with turning SMS and iMessage on and off, restarting my phone, and resetting my network settings, and nothing still works. I can access the internet and use all other features perfectly, either on wi-fi or cell data, and i'm on an unlimited plan so i'm not low on data.


Hi Len,

this is irritatingI know. I crossed this one a while back when I was tring to send somebody a text who didn't have an iphone. Ther eis an option in settings to handle this but that is not always automatic.

The solution is to hold your finger on the text mesage icon when it is being sent. This will then pop up a menu giving you the option to send it as a normal text. Hope this helps.

i got an iphone 6s and i updated it to iOs 9.2.1 and i noticed the photos i took from the camera looks pixelated or grainy. i compared it to my 5s and its seems that 5s took better photos than my 6s. does anyone have problem like this?

I just upgraded my iPad2 to iOS 9.2.1, now most of the videos from a range of sites will not play! What do I have to do to rectify this …

Yes me too! Rebooted fresh iOS 9.2.1 from Apple's own servers in their local store – videos still won't play, even ones I've shot and saved to iCloud! Store employee said "your iPhone is out of warranty so we can't fix it, you have to buy a new one" …really? Not cool man!

Just upgraded my iPhone 4S to 9.2.1 and now email crashes when deleting items. It reboots the iPhone which is frustrating. Not happy at all, this has to be the worst Apple update I've seen.

I have just updated to 9.2.1 and now my phone won't work very well. It struggles to connect and if you do the sound is terrible. HELP as this is a very serious issue.

Ack! My mail has disappeared. The only mail that shows up is what I have just received. Email I received a few hours ago/yesterday is in the Trash folder. Email I received last week is nowhere. When I try to search email for messages I received last week, either some random emails are found from a few YEARS ago or nothing is found. Help!

well i updated to 9.2.1 today and lots of things happened. The first is the restrictions passcode got turned on somehow and locked multiple programs; in fact I only had about 6 standard apps and no APP store. So I spent the entire day and had to back it up, then use ibackbot to write in country code for our standard code 1234 then restore the phone – once i did that the 1234 restriction code worked and i was able to turn it off then. Very frustrating day and lost a ton of time and data on phone. My verizon rep was even clueless.

ever since 9.2.1, my camera app crashes almost every time i try to take a picture, WITHOUT a picture capture. It happens probably 50% of the time. This is getting to be an unusable device now with this issue that i NEVER had prior to this update.

Hello , I am running 9.2.1 iPhone 6s Plus . The phones earpiece volume is so low compared to other phones . Almost $900 for the phone and can't hear shit . Called Verizon . How do they want to solve it ? A new SIM card . Lol I hate Verizon . Call apple . Call Verizon? Wtf is going on ? Apple product NEVER again !

I lost notes, custom ringtones, and I am having an issue with my notification text tones.. They will work for a while and then all of the sudden I won't hear my phone when a text comes through. I have to switch my ringtone for a few days before I can go back to the old one. So far I have only had this problem with my main text tone alert and not for individually set tones for contacts. Also, I have my alarm set, it either doesn't sound, or after I snooze it, it automatically changes my alarm tone to a different one that is no where near loud enough. My sound also does not seem to be as loud as it was all the time.

Sound for my music and ringtones are just buzzing. If I play an alert tone or if I play pandora the speakers are fine. Extremely frustrated and waiting to find other issues as I go.

After this update my iPad 2.5 mini allways restart in unknown time I don't know what is this about I'm getting crazy because of this …help me

My husband woke up late this morning because suddenly the sound for his alarm and all messages is so low even the dog can't hear it. Vibrate also decided to stop working. If there is a fix, please feel free to post it because I'm the last in a LONG line of people ^^^^^ that have horrible problems with this software version. PLEASE HELP!

I upgraded a week ago to 9.2.1 and now when I make a call it is fuzzy and garbled. I've turned off wifi & cellular and then turned the phone off. It did not help. When I put it on speaker phone, that seems ok.
Any suggestions?
