However, some of the irksome issues in iOS 12 are making it difficult for the users to enjoy the update to the fullest. Expert iPhone App Developers India listed below are some of the most troublesome bugs:

Some of the Apple users have reported that after upgrading iPhone X to iOS 12, the colors looked faded. Though, people think that probably because Apple has tweaked the display profile (iPhone X’s OLED screen) this has happened. However, the real reasons behind this issue have not been found yet. Though, some relate it to Apple’s move to enhance the text legibility on wallpapers and a darker shade for folders. But, being one of the top favorite feature of the users, OLED Screen, users definitely want Apple to fix this issue as soon as possible.

2. Internet issues on iPhone 8
There have been reports of a potential mobile data issue in some of the iPhone 8 handsets after updating the phone to iOS 12. Some problems with the mobile data connectivity are troubling the users after they have installed the new edition. The main issue is that the phone will disconnect automatically from the mobile data, at least one time every day. The users have to manually connect again to use the internet services. However, some of the users have faced irksome network connectivity problems.

3. Problems with the Bluetooth
Did the Bluetooth icon disappear after updating your iPhone to iOS 12? Well, this is actually not a problem because Apple has purposely removed the icon from the status bar. However, some users are facing issues with the connection to Bluetooth. After switching to iOS 12, the iPad or iPhone users are unable to transfer stuff using Bluetooth connections.

4. Maps are not working appropriately
As ‘Map’ is one of the most useful features of the iPhone, therefore, it is utmost important to make sure that the maps are working absolutely fine.

But, some of the iOS 12 users have seen issues with displaying traffic conditions. Just make sure that the Map settings are apt and you should be able to view the traffic.

5. Alarms aren't functioning
Alarms are used on a daily basis. How difficult it would be to wake up one day and realize that we are 2 hours late simply because the alarm was not working? Some of the iOS 12 users found it difficult to set alarms in their iPhones after they installed iOS 12. Though, people have tried to reboot the phone to make it work. But if it doesn’t work even after that, then you might have to look for a specific solution.

There can’t be any comparison between the two, but it is believed that Apple wanted to improve the performance more through iOS 12. The focus was less on adding new features, though there are some noteworthy additions. Also, with the new addition, the phones seem to be much more stable. However, there are some bugs in iOS 12 which are still troubling the user. Though, Apple is trying its best to improve and rectify all the issues. And, it has already fixed some bugs with add-on versions of iOS 12 as well.
