iPhone X and other iPhone 6/7/8 user are facing issue with iPhone alarm that alarm does not ring every time. The alarm issue in iPhone is not regular and happens randomly, making the reliability poor. This is apparently iOS 11 bug that mutes your iPhone timers. When iPhone miss an alarm  the screen will keep showing the alarm screen with the alarm info. Alarm is going off (visible on the screen) but no volume.The issue is even reported with iPhone X with iOS 11.2/iOS 11.3.


One reddit user reported as : "Set an alarm to wake up at 4:00am for work and it didn’t actually ring until I was on break at 9:00." iPhone alarm doesn't go off is not a new issue in the iPhone as the issue was also reported in the previous version of iOS 10. The alarm just misses to ring randomly in iPhone. In case you try to set multiple alarms in the iPhone, the first alarm usually works, but the second one fails randomly. 
Users are missing important work, meeting or schedules due to this bug and seem…

Many iPhone 8 and 8 plus users are complaining issue in the phone that the iPhone 8 makes a strange noise when home button is pressed or when it vibrates or when you 3D touch the screen.This may be described as a cracking noise. This is not happening every time but can be observed after some time. It seems to happen randomly when multiple notifications come in back to back. It almost sounded like the sound was coming from the speaker. It’s not a clicking noise, mine truly sounds like the “buzzer”.


A iPhone 8 users said about the issue “I went to double click the home button to close out of some apps, and all of the sudden it made this loud sound every time.  I turned my phone off and back on, and I made sure I had the iOS up to date. Nothing helped.” Usually in such cases where hardware seems to create trouble you should take your iPhone to nearest Apple Store, try going to an Apple Authorized Retailer.

If you are using iPhone from a long time than it is quite possible that you might have faced issue with search in message and iMessage that when you try to search for a word in messages iPhone will show result only from few chats but not from all. Specially iPhone will not search in group chats. It is well known that search in iMessage is terrible, making searching text in iMessage poor.

iPhone X/8/7 distorted/ muffled voice issue on calls after iOS 11.3 upgrade [Fix]

Image
iPhone X/8 and iPhone 6,7 users are facing issue while using carplay app to make voice call while seating in their car.  When other person calls and iPhone 7 is connected via CarPlay to car, person on other hand hears voice distorted/ blurred which makes it hard or impossible for them to understand. On the other side when iPhone is connected via Bluetooth there are no such issue seen and the call works just perfect.


When contacted the Apple customer care sometimes the response is received that its issue with car manufactures, which is not at all convincing as the same car system works fine with earlier version of iOS and no such issue in voice call with carplay was reported. It's certainly an APPLE issue, As after upgrade to iOS 11.3 update and all of CarPlay calls are garbled.  CarPlay works fine all but voice calls out. Sounds like broken speech. The issue is seen across all car like Beetle, BMW, Jetta etc. Even upgrade to latest iOS 11.3.1 does not fix the issue.

iPhone 6s/7 plus home button, vibration, speaker problem after upgrade to iOS 11.3.1 / iOS 11

Image
Many iPhone 6s, 6 plus and iPhone 7 users after upgrading to latest iOS 11.3.1 or 11.3 are facing issue with their iPhone home physical button. For many users the home button has stopped working after the upgrade and for some the home button is responding intermediately. Even after several hours of upgrade home button click is not working on iphone7 plus/6.



Even affected users tried to reset the phones many times but that does not seems to fix the issue. So while the Apple customer support centre report it as a bug in latest iOS 11.3.1 but for some users the customer care replaced the iPhones with new one. There are reports of completely original iPhones malfunctioning after the latest updates.

For some users the situation is even worst as iOS 11.3.1 upgrade just broke the speakers, vibration, and began crashing all the time. The sound seems to decreased after the upgrade and iPhone is not vibrating in iOS 11.3.1.
As the issue is not widespread across all iPhone devices so there are cha…
