Common problem of iPhone 7 and their solutions
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are now the faces of Apple’s iPhone line. The two devices feature some notable changes from last year’s models including improved designs, cameras, and performance. They also come with a new home button.

The new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has not changed much from the predecessor and if you are going to miss the headphone jack in your device than iPhone 6S is a better option for you. However, like any smartphone or tablet, these devices are not without their issues. Which is why, we’ve rounded up some of the common problems that plague iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners, and offer potential solutions on how to fix them!

New fingerprint scanner

This isn’t a problem as such, but quite a few people aren’t huge fans of the way the new fingerprint scanner works, with the need for two presses instead of just one. The haptic feedback that is available to mimic the tactile feel of a physical button is also not everybody’s cup of tea.

Potential solutions:

  • If you don’t like the new implementation, there are couple changes you can make in the Settings to address this. First, you can go to Settings – General – Accessibility – Home Button, and enable “Rest Finger to Open.” This will make it so that a second press will not be required, and kind of goes back to the way it was before.
  • There is also a way to set it up so that no button will need to be pressed. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (and their predecessors) come with a Raise to Wake feature which is enabled by default. Combine that with the setting above, and all you have to do to unlock the phone is pick it up and place your finger on the scanner.
  • Finally, if the haptic feedback is annoying, you can adjust the intensity in the same Home Button section in the Settings menu. It cannot be completely disabled, however.
No cellular connectivity after using Airplane mode

Many users have found that the device fails to reconnect to a cellular network after disabling Airplane mode.

Potential solutions:

  • This is a common issue that has been acknowledged by Apple, and a fix is in the works. Make sure that you keep your device updated whenever the next software updates come in.
  • Until then, simply enabling and disabling Airplane mode has worked for some people, but for the majority, a reboot is required for cellular connectivity to come back again.

“Cannot activate cellular data network” pop up appearing randomly

A few users have found a “Cannot activate cellular data network” message to pop up randomly. This is more of an annoyance, though, as the data and carrier network connectivity don't actually go down. That has been another issue, that has been fixed in an update recently.

Potential solutions:
  • This could potentially happen because of a faulty SIM card. Check to see if there are connection issues by testing the SIM in another phone. Or if it is easy, the best option would be to pick up a replacement SIM card.
  • Another cause could be if the network carrier hasn’t set up or updated your account properly. You can call the respective customer service and let them know the IMEI of your new phone. This particularly happens if you have switched to the iPhone from another smartphone OEM.

iPhone 7 Wi-Fi Problems

Wi-Fi problems are one of the most common iPhone problems and iPhone 7 users are already running into trouble with their connections.

iPhone 7 Wi-Fi problems are plaguing iPhone users around the world and we expect complaints to pickup as more people get their hands on the regular model and the Plus model.

If Wi-Fi starts acting up on your iPhone 7 there are a few things you can try. The first step is to investigate the router you’re using. If you can.

If you’re able to unplug the router for a solid minute, try that. If that doesn’t work, you might want to look into a firmware update. You’ll need to look up your router model online because the update process isn’t the same for every router.

If you’re positive it’s not the router, there are a few things you’ll want to try on the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus itself.

iPhone 7 Bluetooth Problems

We’re also starting to hear about iPhone 7 Bluetooth problems. Bluetooth issues are extremely common iPhone issues and they can popup at any time.

If you start experiencing Bluetooth problems, the first thing you’ll want to do is forget the device giving you an issue. To forget a Bluetooth connection on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus go to Settings > Bluetooth > Select your connection using the circular blue i tab > Tap Forget this Device. Try reconnecting.

If this doesn’t help your device reconnect to your speakers or headset, it’s time to go a step further. First, try resetting your iPhone 7’s network settings. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will take a few seconds and you won’t lose any data.

If that doesn’t help, try resetting all of your settings. To do this go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This will restore your settings to their factory defaults so you’ll need Wi-Fi passwords handy. If you’ve customized a ton of settings on your iPhone, it could take awhile to restore them.

If this doesn’t help your iPhone 7, you’ll want to consult your manual for your speaker, headset, car, etc. Most products have manuals online so do a quick Google search for your product and see what you find.

If you’re dealing with a Bluetooth issue in the car and you can’t find a manual fix, you might want to make an appointment with your local dealer to see if they can diagnose the problem for you.
