3 Workarounds for Common iPhone 6S Glitches

A blanked screen iPhone 6siPhone 6S is a tremendously good-looking phone that almost everyone would love to buy. However, not everyone who owns it is having a smooth experience using it. Since this phone is still relatively new, it comes with a few glitches. But, the good news is these minor issues can be fixed with a bit of workaround.

Here are some of the common problems in iPhone 6S that you can fix on your own:

Issue #1: Unusually Hot Home Button

Many users reported that their home button gets unusually hot, though the rest of the device works fine. In some cases, when it gets too hot, the hot button stops working. This issue often happens after charging the iPhone 6S.

Quick Fix: If the button stops working, press the home button and the sleep/wake button together for around ten seconds or until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. If it doesn’t work, try leaving the phone in a cool environment for a while before you try the quick fix again. However, if the problem persists, you need to bring your phone to an Apple repair centre like Apple Fix.

Glitch #2: Random Shutdowns

Several iPhone 6S owners have complained that their phones turn off randomly and won’t respond to a sleep/wake button press.

Quick Fix: Most users who encountered this glitch said that resetting their phones was the solution. So, go to your settings and click the reset all option. Do not restore a backup, as some tech experts say that restoring old data could be the root of this issue.

Glitch #3: Distorted Sounds

A number of iPhone 6S owners reported distorted sounds whenever thy turn up the volume levels.

Quick Fix:  Go to your settings first, and try turning off the EQ option. If it doesn’t work, check if all of your apps are fully updated. Once the settings and apps get updated, chances are the phone will no longer produce a distorted sound. If it continues to do so, bring the phone to a repair centre as it is likely that there’s a hardware issue.

Despite these minor problems, iPhone 6S is still a good buy. Just remember these quick fixes, so you’ll know what to do if you encounter a few glitches while using your new iPhone 6S.
