How to Fix Common Issues with Apple Devices?


Apple devices are known for their quality and performance, but sometimes they may encounter some issues or technical problems that can affect the user experience. In this article, we will discuss some of the most common issues faced by the consumers of Apple and iPhone devices, and how to resolve them or register a complaint to Apple.

iPhone is Disabled, Connect to iTunes

This is one of the most common issues faced by iPhone users, especially if they forget their passcode or enter it incorrectly too many times. When this happens, the iPhone will display a message saying “iPhone is disabled, connect to iTunes” and will not allow any further attempts to unlock it. This is a security feature to prevent unauthorized access to the device and its data.

To fix this issue, you need to connect your iPhone to a computer with iTunes installed and follow the steps to restore your device. This will erase all the data and settings on your iPhone and update it to the latest iOS version. You can then set up your iPhone as new or restore it from a backup.

To avoid this issue in the future, make sure you remember your passcode or use other methods to unlock your iPhone, such as Face ID or Touch ID.

Face ID Not Working

Face ID is a convenient and secure way to unlock your iPhone or iPad, authenticate purchases, and access apps that support it. However, sometimes Face ID may not work properly or fail to recognize your face. This can happen due to various reasons, such as:

  • Your face is not in the camera’s view, too far away, or covered by a mask, sunglasses, hat, or other objects
  • Your face has changed significantly due to makeup, hairstyle, beard, etc.
  • The lighting conditions are too bright or too dark
  • The camera or the sensors are dirty or damaged

To fix this issue, you can try the following solutions:

  • Make sure your face is visible and within the camera’s range and remove any accessories or objects that may cover your face
  • Update your Face ID appearance in Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Set Up an Alternate Appearance
  • Clean the camera and the sensors with a soft, lint-free cloth
  • Restart your device or reset Face ID in Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Reset Face ID
  • Contact Apple Support or visit an Apple Store if the issue persists

iPhone Not Charging

Another common issue faced by iPhone users is that their devices do not charge or charge slowly when plugged into a power source. This can be caused by several factors, including:

  • The charging cable or the adapter is faulty or incompatible
  • The charging port or the lightning connector is dirty or damaged
  • The battery is worn out or defective
  • The software is outdated or corrupted

To fix this issue, you can try the following solutions:

  • Use the original Apple charging cable and adapter or a certified third-party accessory
  • Check the charging port and the lightning connector for any debris or damage and clean them gently with a dry, soft-bristled brush
  • Replace the battery if it is swollen, leaking, or has a low maximum capacity
  • Update your device to the latest iOS version or restore it in iTunes
  • Finally, you can contact Apple Support or visit a service center.

Fix Other Problems

In tackling some other common issues encountered with Apple products, users might face syncing problems with iCloud, connection difficulties with AirPods, or startup challenges on Mac computers.

iCloud syncing

iCloud syncing errors, such as failed backups or insufficient storage alerts, can often be resolved by verifying Apple ID credentials, ensuring stable internet connectivity, managing storage efficiently, updating software, adjusting settings, or seeking Apple Support.


AirPods users may experience pairing issues or poor audio quality, which can be addressed by checking the proximity and battery levels of devices, updating to compatible software versions, adjusting settings, cleaning the hardware, or consulting technical experts for assistance.

Mac startup

Mac startup problems, manifesting as blank screens, question marks, or other symbols, can be mitigated by ensuring a power connection, rebooting, entering Safe or Recovery Mode, resetting system settings, reinstalling the operating system, or reaching out to the support team for more complex issues.

Finally, customers can approach Apple Support in their respective country or visit the authorized service center. Alternatively, users can contact any nearby technical expert.

How to Register a Complaint to Apple Support

If you are not satisfied with the performance or the service of your Apple device, you can register a complaint to Apple and seek a resolution. There are different ways to contact Apple, depending on the nature of your complaint and your location. Here are some of the options:

  • Contact Apple Support online or by phone and explain your issue to an Apple Advisor. You can find the contact details for your country or region.
  • US customers can contact the Apple Support, US
  • Use the Apple Support app on your device to get personalized access to solutions and chat with an Apple Expert.
  • Visit an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider and speak to a Genius or a technician. You can find the nearest location and book an appointment.
  • For complaints related to the App Store, Apple TV app, Apple TV+, or iTunes matters, you can use the online grievance forms.

Apple values your feedback and will try to resolve your complaint as soon as possible.

If not resolved, write an email or a letter to Apple’s Customer Relations or Legal department. However, if you are not happy with the outcome, you can escalate your complaint to a higher authority or seek legal advice.

Further, customers can file a consumer complaint to the consumer protection authority of the country with product and warranty details.
