Users have faced problems after upgrading to iOS 12.1.3

On Tuesday, January 22, Apple released a minor iOS update number 12.1.3. It was expected that this update will finally solve all the problems related to low signal reception of cellular communication and Wi-Fi. However, this did not happen. On the contrary – according to messages of users of the website Reddit, the update only made the problem worse. So much so that some iPhone owners were left without a connection.

For the first time about the problem became known in September 2018, when the download became available iOS 12. Despite the large number of published updates, users keep watch on their smartphones outages, data transmission over LTE and Wi-Fi. Can get to the fact that the relationship simply ceases to function. In this case, helps only reboot the device.

According to users, this bug affects all current models of the iPhone, but it is not permanent in nature, which has so far failed to identify a pattern. In some cases it helps to reset the network settings, and sometimes a change of operator. This fact may indicate that the problem is related to software, not hardware problem as previously thought.

Apple is aware of the problem, however, does not provide you with normal solution. Technical support specialists offer to wait for the nearest update of the operating system or do a General reset of the device. To do this:

  • To connect the device to the computer.
  • Start iTunes and go to the tab “Update”.
  • First save all the necessary data and to disable the “Find My iPhone“.
  • Reinstall the operating system using the option “Restore”. It should be understood that all data on the device will be removed.
  • After successful completion of recovery process, you must configure the device “as new”. Prerequisite — do not restore saved data from iCloud backup or iTunes.

Obviously, this method is not suitable for all users. But so far this is the only way out of the situation.
