iPhone 13 problems and solutions

  • by

The iPhone 13, like most, if not all, iPhones over the years, has been a huge success and a fan favorite, in terms of user satisfaction overall. But some users have reported problems they have encountered while using their iPhone 13 and with the release of the iOS 16 software there have been specific complaints about increased battery drain and cellular network problems. Let’s take a look at some of these problems and how to solve them.

iPhone 13 problems and solutions

iPhone 13 problem: Fast Battery drain 

Some iPhone 13 users have complained about the speed at which the battery drains especially after the iOS 16 software update. A particular user reports that he loses 25-30% battery power overnight, without engaging in any activity or leaving connectivity features on. That is quite alarming. Here are some ways to reduce and possibly improve this problem.

Restart your device: restarting your iPhone 13 can temporarily solve this issue. This should be one of the first, if not the first, options you try when you realize that your battery is draining faster. Shut down your phone, let it be for a minute or two and turn the phone on.

5G: 5G might have all the upsides you can think of but it also drains more battery power than other network options. If you do not frequently use 5G for your activities, or you know you can do without it you should consider changing your 5G settings from “5G On” to “5G Auto” or down to LTE. Having “5G On” selected means that your phone will always use 5G when it is available. Selecting 5G Auto means your iPhone 13 will use 5G when it will not drain your phone’s battery. 5G Auto is the default option and should be your choice if you want to reduce battery drain on your iPhone 13.

Update your iPhone: Installing new iOS updates can help solve battery drain even though they sometimes are the cause of such problems. Point updates (x.x.x) are aimed at fixing bugs and milestone upgrades (x.x) usually provide a mic of features and fixes. Although, it is never really stated that the updates include battery life/drain solutions they usually help reduce the drain and improve battery life.

Go through your apps: there have been cases where battery drain problems are caused by one or more apps running on your phone. Go to your settings, tap on battery and check the battery usage of all your apps. If you notice that there is, indeed, one that is causing your iPhone 13 to drain faster, you can try deleting the app to see if there will be any improvements. If it is one that you barely use, you might need to investigate that app further to find out why.

•Reset All Settings: When you have made sure it’s not an issue with any of the apps you have installed, resetting the settings on your iPhone 13 is another viable option to reduce battery drain. Head into Settings, tap on General, and select “Transfer or Reset iPhone”. Tap Reset and then finally ” Reset All Settings”. Enter your passcode if you have one set up.

•Low Power Mode: Turning Low Power Mode on can help you reduce how fast the battery on your iPhone 13 drains. This usually pops up when your iPhone 13 reaches 20%. Head to Settings, select Battery, select “Low Power Mode”, and turn it on.

iPhone 13 problem: Cellular connection problem

After the iOS 16 software update, a few users have reported problems with losing Cellular connection frequently. The signal indicator appears to fall and sometimes the 5G icon is visible but the internet does not work. Restarting your iPhone 13 can solve this issue. If that doesn’t work, try turning Airplane Mode on for 30 seconds before turning it off, and try connecting to your cellular data.


If none of these options work, you can try completely shutting off your cellular data. Go to the Settings app, select Cellular, turn Cellular Data off, let it stay in this state for a minute, and then turn it back on. 

iPhone 13 problem: Wi-Fi connectivity

If you are experiencing your Wi-Fi connections continually dropping and your Wi-Fi speed slowing, here are some steps you can take to possibly fix this issue. You need to investigate the Wi-Fi connection giving you problems. If you’re on your home Wi-Fi network, try unplugging the router and/or modem for a minute before plugging it back in.

If you can’t access the router and/or modem you’re connected to, go to your iPhone’s Settings app. You need to forget the Wi-Fi network that you are having problems with. Here’s how to do that:

•Select your connection by tapping the “i” in the circle.

•Tap Forget this Network at the top of the screen. This process will cause your iPhone SE to forget the Wi-Fi password so you’ll want to have that handy
