Latest issue to hit Apple; phone app freezes on iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone 5s

Latest issue to hit Apple; phone app freezes on iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPhone 5s
Just a few months ago, when it felt as though Samsung Galaxy Note 7's were exploding left and right, the iPhone almost had a halo around it by comparison. But lately, Apple's iconic handset has been experiencing issues of its own. Some Apple iPhone 6 units are having problems recording touch inputs on the screen, which has led to the filing of a class action suit against Apple. The so-called Touch Disease can be repaired by the tech titan for $149.

Additionally, some Apple iPhone 6s units manufactured between September and October 2015 are shutting down with the battery going from 30% to 0% in the blink of an eye. You can check on Apple's support website to see if you are entitled to a free battery replacement.

The latest problem with the iPhone has been discussed on the Apple Support Communities forum. There, owners of the Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and even the Apple iPhone 5s are complaining that their phone application is freezing. This is preventing them from making and taking phone calls, or handling other phone related operations. It appears that for many, this problem started after the update to iOS 10.1.1. For some, the problem came with the update to iOS 10. Soft and Factory resets are not helping.


Apple has yet to acknowledge this issue, but the company initially did the same with Touch Disease and the so-called #BatteryGate problems. It is hoped that iOS 10.2 will fix this issue. Right now, iOS 10.2 Beta 5 has been disseminated to developers and members of the public beta program, which means that iOS 10.2 is close at hand.

Some iPhone users have had their phone app freeze once they updated to iOS 10.1.1

Hey, you loooove to troll BlackBerry articles. Now it's time for you to sit there and take it up the a$$ while we have some fun at Apple's expense.

This dude is Apple's representative? If not, why should he take it up his ass when you're making fun of Apple?

An advocate makes money either way, so why should he take it up his ass?

He is worse than that. He is an iSpeep. At least the representative is someone that gets paid to defend Apple no matter what.

It was a metaphorical rump roasting. It wasn't directed at you but if you want to engage me, I'm game. Just remember, when you come at the king, you best not miss.

Like I would care what every dumb ass is writing on the internet... I only had a problem with you logic and, if it's just a stupid thing, directed towards someone because you don't have the common sense to use arguments to suport your opinions, I have nothing to talk about with "the king".

132. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't care lol. But honestly though, it's not me. It's the hornet who doesn't hesitate to attack at any moment.

Lol, at least he's admitting that he's a troll that loves to troll BlackBerry articles that has no problem taking it up the @$$ at Apples expense. How's that for idol worship, right Crispin? Lol. And just look at how many people are popping out if the woodwork to call him "Apple Advocate" and a "$#33p". Truth must really be painful for him, lol.

I don't know where all this advocate stuff came from. Seems there's more butthurt going on than meets the eye. My point was directed at no one else except mxy and his constant trolling of BlackBerry articles. Now Apple's in a pinch and it's fun to poke fun at him. What was it you said? What's good for the goose.....

Exactly. Mxy sure can dish out the trolling of BlackBerry articles, but he has a hard time taking when Apple gets trolled. The advocate stuff was directed at mxy from others that see his constant trolling of other OEM's like BlackBerry, but he leaps to Apple's defense, even when they're wrong.

156. Mxyzptlk unregistered

A. So you're admitting that you are trolling Apple articles? That makes you a hypocrite because you were whining about me "monkey see, monkey do." B. You leap to BlackBerry's defense at every corner. C. Get over it.

Posts: 21453; Member since: May 28, 2014

A) I'm admitting that YOU are a troll in an Apple article. And you're a complete hypocrite for even thinking to call me a hypocrite, considering your hypocrisy knows no bounds. B) You leap to troll BlackBerry articles every time they're posted, and even Crispin knows it. You look so silly kissing bum the way you do, knowing that he calls you a troll, like now. Lmao! C) Get over yourself.

187. Mxyzptlk unregistered

A. You're just as guilty of being a troll and a hypocrite. What part of that did you not understand? B. You're just salty because I said Crispin was more respectful and level headed than you will ever be. That's not kissing bum. That's just stating a fact. C. You first.

A) Post proof backed up by links if me trolling and being a hypocrite, because I can certainly do that concerning you. Understand THAT. B) In other words, "I don't care if I kiss Crispin's bum, Meanest. Kissing make bum if those I'm afraid of is what I do. Who cares if he calls me a troll? It's true, after all." There. I fixed that part of your post for you. And don't mimic me in your response. C) Ladies first, Michelle.

157. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Lol, this is coming from the guy who acts like he gets it up the @$$ on a daily basis. You're a blackberry advocate/shill.

Says the guy that buries his face in the lap of his boyfriend every morning before breakfast. You're an unpaid Apple Priest and $#33p-z0mbi3.

Pot meet kettle because everything you said to me applies to you as well.
