iPhone SE Problems: 5 Things You Need to Know

    iPhone SE Problems: 5 Things You Need to Know is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

    iPhone SE users are reporting problems with the latest version of iOS 14 and the current list includes severe battery drain, issues with connectivity, lag, and other performance issues.

    The iPhone SE is still a very solid device, but it’s far from perfect. iPhone SE owners are dealing with a myriad of problems.

    We haven’t run into any major software on our iPhone SE, but some users are noticing bugs and a drop in performance. iOS updates aren’t supposed to have a negative effect on your device so this is obviously concerning.

    Today we want to address these iPhone SE problems and take you through the most important things those dealing with issues, and those worried about issues, need to know.

    Our guide to iPhone SE problems outlines the current set of issues and provides you with some resources that will come in handy if you run into something on your phone.

    It also includes a look at what to expect from Apple and iOS 14 down the road.

    iPhone SE Problems

    The current list of iPhone SE problems features some familiar faces.

    We’re hearing about severe battery drain where the device can barely hold a charge. We’re also hearing about issues with Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth devices, abnormal amounts of UI lag when opening folders and apps and while moving around the home screen, random reboots, and issues with first-party apps like Mail and Podcasts.

    We’re also seeing complaints about problems with the iPhone SE’s speakers where sound sometimes becomes distorted, issues with the device’s touch screen, issues with the phone’s camera, and issues with Widgets.

    Problems can emerge, whenever, wherever, so you’ll want to be as prepared as you can. We highly recommend backing up the files on your iPhone SE on a regular basis.

    We’ve also released a pre-installation guide for Apple’s iOS 14 updates that will take you through some things to do before installing new software on your device.

    Apple will periodically release bug fixes for the iPhone SE and you’ll want to make sure you, and your device, are prepared before initiating the download.

    Where to Find Feedback

    You’ll also want to dig into feedback and fixes from iPhone SE users, particularly right after a new iOS update is released. There are a few places to do that.

    We recommend keeping an eye on YouTube, Apple’s discussion forums, social media sites like Twitter/Facebook, and the MacRumors forums for feedback about the iPhone SE’s hardware and software.

    We’ve also released our own feedback about the iPhone SE’s iOS 14.1 update and we’ll continue to provide feedback about the device’s hardware and software in the months ahead.

    How to Fix iPhone SE Problems

    If you run into trouble on your iPhone SE your first instinct might be to contact Apple or your carrier. These are all options, good options, but you might be able to fix the issue from the comfort of your home or office.

    Before you get in contact with Apple or your carrier, take a look at our list of fixes for common problems. It offers fixes for the most common problems.

    We’ve also put together some tips to help you improve your iPhone SE’s overall performance and another guide that will help you improve your iPhone SE battery life.

    If you can’t find a fix on our lists your next move should be a quick look at Apple’s discussion forums. There are a ton of knowledgable people over there and they might have the perfect solution to your issue.

    If you don’t find what you’re looking for there, it’s time to get in touch with Apple. You can contact Apple customer service on Twitter or via the company website.

    If the company’s online customer support can’t help you, it’s time to take your phone in to a physical store. If you have an Apple store close to you that’s open, make a Genius Bar appointment.

    How to Downgrade the iPhone SE

    If iOS 14.1 is causing problems, you can try downgrading to the previous version of iOS 14.

    Apple is signing on iOS 14.0.1 which means you can move your phone’s software back in an effort to improve its performance. You can’t drop its software back to iOS 14.0 or iOS 13.

    If you’re interested in the downgrade process, take a look at our guide.

    What’s Next

    If your iPhone SE is having a hard time on iOS 14.1, iOS 14.0.1, or iOS 14.0, keep an eye out for new software.

    Apple is working on iOS 14.2 for the iPhone SE and other iPhone models. The software is currently in beta and the milestone upgrade should carry new features and bug fixes for some of iOS 14’s initial problems.

    We don’t have an iOS 14.2 release date yet though we expect it to arrive in November. If you can’t wait, you can download the beta onto your phone right now.

    For more on iOS 14.2, take a look at our guide.
