iPhone 8 Bluetooth problems
Bluetooth connectivity became further important ever since the iPhone 7 when Apple got rid of the earphone jack. Having iPhone 8 Bluetooth problems means you can’t pair your music with your Air Pods – which is almost like watching a TV with no sound.
Thus, ensure to update your iOS 11 to the latest version to avoid Bluetooth problems. If you’re still experiencing iPhone 8 Bluetooth issues, here’s a way to proceed:
1) Try turning Bluetooth off, rebooting, and turning Bluetooth back on again:
2) Try forgetting the un/paired device
3) Reset network settings
The iPhone 8 swelling battery issue
Of all iPhone 8 issues, the swelling battery is certainly the most buzzed-about (though most likely the least widespread). Some reports have surfaced worldwide that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus batteries have a tendency to expand. This causes the phone to split, detaching the screen from the back, and making for great footage.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are top-of-the-line handsets and we at iFixScreens enjoy servicing them. The most common iPhone 8 problem is one that can’t be solved with buttons and software updates – it’s a broken iPhone 8 screen. Though Apple states the iPhone 8 and 8 plus are designed with “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone,” the fact that both front and back are made of this durable glass put the iPhone 8 at a higher risk of smashing.
