Apple released iOS 8.1 update in late October bringing a list of bug fixes for iOS 8 problems, but iOS 8.1 do have its own bugs. After identifying the 7 most common problems after iOS 8.1 update (maybe also for iOS 8.2/8.3/8.4), here I'm to offer corresponding solutions as below.

And the following are the details.

1. Q: Since I upgraded my iPhone 5S to iOS 8.1, it runs out of power very quickly! Is there anything I can do with it?

A: Battery drain is one of the most common problems you would encounter after iOS upgrade into iOS 8/9/10. But there're 5 tricks you can take to improve the situation.

2. Q: Why I can't send files to my friends via AirDrop?

A: In that case, you can simply solve it by pulling up Control Center from the bottom of the screen and change the setting from Off or Contacts Only to Everyone. Alternatively, you can also send large files via WhatsApp.

3. Q: I still failed to send iMessages due to slow connections though I've upgrade my iPhone 5 to iOS 8.1, how to fix it?

A: Slow connection and no connection have plagued Apple users for many years and it seems that there's no different in iOS 8.1. Fortunately, there're 3 tips on it.

4. Q: Before I updated my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.1, it could get around 50 Mb/s on Wi-Fi. But now it tops out at 25 Mb/s whatever I did. Any solution?

A: We've heard a lot complaint about Wi-Fi issues like erratic connection speeds, Wi-Fi speeds deceleration, etc. Though there's no guaranteed fix for it, reset networking settings might be of great help. All you need is to head to Settings >> General >> Reset >> Reset Network Settings. But note that this would wipe out all the records of your commonly-used Wi-Fi passwords.

5. Q: My iPhone 7 got stuck in a loop of rebooting, how can I solve it?

A: Just like cellular data issues, random reboot also troubles Apple users a lot. So far, there's no way to completely eradicate it, but there're 3 ways to minimize it.

6. Q: Each time I search for fare sales with Safari, it usually displays the old page I opened days ago. How can I get the latest information?

A: Problems like slow page loads and sprawling temporary data cache still exist in iOS 8.1 Safari, but there're 2 effective measures you can take.

7. Q: Though I've upgraded my iPhone 6 to iOS 8.1, I still encounter occasional keyboard lag when shooting off iMessages. Any fix on it?

A: Keyboard is still a common iOS problem although iOS 8 update has improved it a lot (check 6 things you must know about iOS 8 keyboards). But thankfully, there're 2 simple fixes worth trying.

If you encounter other problems instead of the above 7, I have 2 recommendations: Leave a comment below and we'll figure a way out for you ASAP, or contact AppleCare.
