Top 1: Bent Housing



Well, it’s not any new news that Apple’s iPhone 6 had the whole “Bend Gate” fiasco not long after the device was released. Even though Apple claimed that it’s not a common problem and only a few users reported to experience it. However, this problem still exists among many iPhone 6 users.

Anyway, if your iPhone 6 screen is cracked, you can either send it to the Apple Center or a repair shop for a replacement.

Top 6: Incoming Call Problems



Some users reported that their iPhone 6 displays don’t light up to show the pickup or dismiss options even though they can hear their phone ring or vibrate for an incoming call. It can be solved either by resetting or restoring the device. Make sure to back up all the data before doing this step.


However, some users claimed that they can’t hear the person on the other end during a call although the volume is turned up. In this case, the first step is to ensure the ear speaker mesh cover is not covered by any dust. Then, check the earphone jack to make sure it’s not stuck with the earphone plug or debris. Some other possible solutions are: turning off the Bluetooth, turning off the Phone Noise Cancellation and resetting. If the problem still persists, perhaps you’ll have to turn to Apple Store or repair shop for help.


Top 7: No Touch ID



It seems to be a bug with iOS 8.0.1, while iOS 8.0.2 is updated to fix this bug. If there’s no Touch ID service on your iPhone 6, update your device to the latest version first.


If the problem still persists, try to roll back to iOS 8.0. You’ll need to download the right IPSW file, here they are for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Plug your iPhone 6 into your computer and back it up in iTunes. On Windows, you need to hold down Shift and hit the Restore option, then choose the IPSW file you downloaded. On a Mac, you should hold the Alt key and click Restore and then choose the IPSW file.


Tip: No Touch ID service will be available after you get an iPhone 6 home button replacement as the Touch ID sensor is uniquely tied to the logic board. If you want the function back, you’ll need to visit the Apple Center. If you’d like to know more information, check it here: Apple’s Touch ID and You.


Top 8: Keyboard Problems



Some users complained that they’re facing keyboard problems like the top row of letters and the text prediction row are superimposed, some keys don’t respond, part of the text field is black etc. Resetting should always be done first when a problem occurs, besides keyboard problems can possibly be solved by the following tips:


  • Turn off the Raise to Listen by going to Settings > Messages.
  • Turn on the Button Shapes by going to Settings > General > Accessibility.
  • Turn on the Zoom by going to Settings > General > Accessibility.
  • Or you might use a third-party keyboard instead.


Top 9: SIM Card Problems



While some iPhone 6/6 Plus users complaint that they’re facing “Invalid SIM” or “No SIM card installed” glitches. Following these tips may be worth a try: turn off Airplane mode, restart your device or update to the latest system. Or you may change another SIM card before sending it in for repair.


Top 10: Overheating


Some users reported that their iPhone 6/6 Plus rear housing gets very hot. Since you risk burning yourself if the device is extremely hot, you need to contact the local Apple Center for the sake of safety.
