Please look at that big bug in ios 15 about thumbnails in photos app all are blurry and when we take new image that looks blurry for 5 6 seconds.
Thanks for the feedback Abdul. Can you mention your iPhone model please? The blurriness is caused by post-processing. If you check an image too fast after capturing it, you might experience blurriness for a short period of time because post-processing is ongoing. If you won an older model the blurriness might seem longer because of the lower processing power.
Please look up the bug with the important places, during COVID this feature was very important to look up where I went to in the past.
Thanks for the feedback Leonarda, we will cover it soon.
I have a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze. Since day 1 I have been plugging my phone into the USB port, it connects and plays my music. After the 15.2 update it no longer connects to my car. The USB port still charges my phone but will no longer play music. Many other iPhone users with the same car are also having this problem. This update keeps us from connecting our phones. I wasted $800 on this iPhone for you to make these garbage updates that rather than update and help me, set me back and don’t allow me to access things that should be elementary. This is unacceptable and pathetic. Fix it.
Thanks for reporting Maria. I’m sorry about the recent issues that you’re facing with your iPhone not connecting to your car. We’re taking a look at it. However, you have to know that at iPhoneTricks.org we’re trying to find iOS and other Apple product related bugs, highlight them and try to fix or find useful workarounds.
What we can do for you is send feedback to Apple and report this bug. If you have any other details regarding this bug that might be useful, don’t hesitate to report them. Thanks for your understanding.
P.S.: You can also check this article that shows a fix for CarPlay not working in iOS 15.
Extreme left side from top to bottom is not working. Like if you are typing something then key 1, key below than that and so on not working.
Thanks for reporting. Have you tried rebooting the iPhone?
