No phone is perfect and the iPhone 11 series is not without their own set of issues either. Yes, the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are very good phones but one and a half years after launch, it’s clear that these phones have some issues and problems as well. Check out this article to know about some of the most common iPhone 11 issues and how to fix them.
Some of the most common issues being reported by iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro owners include high standby battery drain, mobile network connectivity loss, Bluetooth devices not showing up or pairing with the device, Wi-Fi connectivity issues, and more. The good thing is that most of these issues are due to an underlying issue with the software meaning Apple can fix them in a future iOS update.
iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro Issues and How to Fix Them
High Standby Battery Drain
A number of iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro owners have been facing excessively high standby battery drain on their device. iPhones are known for their excellent standby battery life, but users are seeing standby battery drain as high as 20% in 8-10 hours. This is when their iPhone is idle and not doing anything. The issue persists even when one disconnects their iPhone 11 from a 4G network and puts it on airplane mode. Such a high battery drain should not be there when the phone is in airplane mode which points to this being an underlying bug in iOS.

4G Network Connectivity Issue
One of the highlights of the iPhone 11 series is 4G connectivity. However, one of the most common issues that iPhone 11 owners are facing is with 4G mobile network connectivity itself. Users report that their iPhone 11 will suddenly drop the 4G network it is connected to and then won’t connect to the network automatically.
The issue primarily happens when a user is on the move and the device is switching between towers. The issue happens irrespective of whether the device is connected to a 3G or 4G network. It is unclear why this issue is happening, though the workaround to this problem is to toggle airplane mode on/off on the iPhone 11 to get it to connect to the mobile network again.

Having Wi-Fi connectivity issues with any iPhone model is almost a given, and the iPhone 11 series is no exception here. iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro users frequently report about their device not connecting to a Wi-Fi network or getting slow internet speeds on Wi-Fi. There can be a number of reasons as to why this is happening, with the issue either being caused by your Wi-Fi router or due to some incorrect settings on your iPhone 11.

iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro owners have been reporting about Bluetooth issues with their device as well. Most users report that their iPhone 12 is unable to detect any other Bluetooth device that’s in pairing mode or vice versa. I have personally faced this issue on my iPhone 11 as well running iOS 14.4.2. The issue seems to be plaguing the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro series right from launch day.
The only workaround I have found to this problem is to restart one’s iPhone and then try connecting it to the Bluetooth device again. Toggling Bluetooth off/on rarely works so restart is the only option. Hopefully, Apple should get around to fixing this Bluetooth issue on the iPhone 11 series with a future software update sooner than later.

My text icon says there’s a message but there isn’t any when it’s opened.
My iphone start clicking and scrolling everywhere without me touching anything, also doesn’t always react when I touch it. Often happens for an hour and sometimes doesn’t happen for a day.

My iPhone 11 Pro is frozen – showing “Relationships” with list of words, such as mother, father, etc. and “Cancel” — but it’s NOT canceling! I can’t make a call or go to Contacts. Please advise. Thank you.
Lots of issues that I tolerate for some reason…along with the above mentioned problems mine refuses to share some shared data with my desktop mac. I dumped my iPhone 6 because it was turning the screen on when I had the phone to my ear talking and now the 11 does this too. Adjusting sensitivity does zilch.
