After installing 15.7.3 on iPhone 7. Phone overheating, battery discharging and Touch ID no longer working. I’ve had a new battery installed but phone still discharging very quickly and Touch ID not working.
Thanks for reporting. You’ve been on 15.7.2 before it? When was the new battery installed? Before installing 15.7.3 or after?
After installing ios15.7.3
In this case it might be a hardware issue. I assume that the new battery is an aftermarket one.
Battery drain fast
Shockingly erratic phone behaviour including battery showing 1% charge within few minutes of full charge then reversing the position immediately on inserting charging cable. Phone almost unusable for several day though some sign of slight improvement now.Occurred straight after update and not improved by reset or clearing Apps etc. Battery said to be ok.
What iPhone model are you using? Does it us an aftermarket replacement battery?
Translated from Portuguese:
“My iphone 7 plus 128gb crashes after 15 to 20 minutes of use after updating to ios 15.7.3. it automatically restarts and goes back to the lock screen. The battery has been replaced but overheating and automatic reboots persist. Is it possible to go back to an antiror version of ios?”
O meu iphone 7 plus 128gb trava com 15 a 20 minutos de uso apos a atualização para o ios 15.7.3. ele reinicia automaticamente e volta para a tela de bloqueio. A bateria foi trocada mas o superaquecimento e os reboots automaticos persistem. é possivel voltar uma versão antiror do ios?
Sorry to hear this. Yes you can downgrade to iOS 15.6 RC as shown here:
Desde que atualizei meu iPhone 7 pois para a versão 15.7.3 ele passou a ter bugs não funcionando áudio e chamadas do WhatsApp, no Instagram áudio e postagem e gravação de vídeo, e da câmera para foto e vídeo algo que antes da nova atualização funcionava perfeitamente
mine is no longer working , it blocks , my id touch does not work , my screen freezes, i cant call ppl and pll cannot call me , the phone gets so hot and it was perfectly normal before that , the battery says it’s 5% and then changes into the real number and it drops so fast.
Greetings, iam facing an issue of WhatsApp status missing/not showing after updating my 7 plus to 15.7.3
Ever since the update I suddenly have not been able to hear any ringing or sound at all on incoming or outgoing calls. My speakers are still functional (I can hear all other music and notifications), it is not Bluetooth connected and not on headphones mode. Incredibly frustrating
