Wireless connectivity issues

A few days after the initial release of the iOS 10, a few users reported issues with the LTE and other wireless connectivity features.

Increased battery drain

Normally, new iOS versions will have features that are not available on the previous iterations. One good example is the Background App Refresh. This feature makes sure that App contents are updated even when it is safely tucked in the background. Unfortunately, this feature will also use up data and of course, battery. To save on battery charge, make sure you turn this feature off if you are not using it as much. Rebooting the device can sometimes solve this issue too.

Touch screen issues

Some users reported that their units started having issues with the touch screen after updating to the new iOS 10. Some say that their screens started responding rather slowly while other reported screen unresponsiveness. To remedy this problem, make sure the screen of the iOS device is free from any dirt. Restarting or resetting the device will, most of the time, solve this problem.
