Most common iOS 13 beta problems and how to fix them

iOS 13 has finally landed in our shores and it has some big changes. One such change is dark mode, something we have been demanding for years. iOS 13 dark mode now works across the operating system, from the app icons to menu settings, allowing for the better nighttime reading experience.

Apple released the first beta of iOS 13 to developers shortly after the unveiling event. This is Apple’s way of collecting user feedback ahead of a public release. I have iOS 13 installed on my iPhone and to be honest, it is very fast and smooth. However, I noticed a number of bugs and glitches, which seems fair as it is just a beta.

iOS 13 beta is not something I recommend to you. However, if you are tempted to try the software, then my advice is to install it on devices you don’t heavily rely on. In the section below, we made a list of the most common iOS 13 beta problems and possible fixes.

iOS 13 failed to install

A lot of iPhone owners have reported that they cannot install iOS 13 beta on their device. This could be any reason for why a software update fails to install. In this case, make sure you now have enough space on your iPhone.

If the installation gets stuck, then try performing a hard reset. To do this, press Volume Up and release. Then press Volume Down and release and press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo. When your iPhone finishes booting up, run the installer to see if the problem is fixed.

If the problem still persists, try removing your SIM card. This trick actually worked for some people, but I recommend you do this on a secondary device.

Battery issues

Abnormal battery drain is a common issue as it pops up every year. Some iPhone users are reporting that they experience a rapid battery drain in iOS 13. If you are now affected by the issue, then try rebooting your device to see if everything is fixed.

If the problem is still there, find out which apps are draining your iPhone’s battery. To do this, open the Settings app, then hit Battery and select Battery Usage. From here, you should see a list of all apps that consume your iPhone’s power. Locate an app that uses the most power and shut it down.

Alternatively, you can enable Low Power mode, a cool feature that reduces power consumption and visual effects to save some battery. To enable it, open Settings > Battery > Low Power Mode and turn on the switch.

If nothing is fixed, then reset all settings. To do this, go to Settings > General > Reset and hit Reset All Settings. Following this method, all of your current settings will be reset to their default state. I recommend you make a backup of your iPhone before proceeding.

Connectivity problems

A lot of iPhone owners are complaining about slow Wi-Fi speeds after updating to iOS 13 beta. If you are one of those who have been affected by the issue, then try restarting your iPhone. After that, forget your network and re-connect. To do this, open Settings > Wi-Fi, select your network, then forget it and re-connect.

If nothing is fixed, try resetting your network settings. To do this, head over to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings and confirm your action.

Performance issues

iOS 13 is still in the early stages, so it may include bugs and glitches. I noticed UI lags, bugs, and crashes in iOS 13. To speed up your performance, the best shot is to reboot your iPhone. Performing a reboot helps to fix some major issues like crashes, lags, unresponsiveness.

If your apps are not responding, then try force closing them and uninstall them. Plus, make sure you now have the latest version of apps on your iPhone. Keep in mind that some apps might not be compatible with iOS 13 beta.

Go back to iOS 12

If none of the above solutions works for you, then it’s a good idea to go back to a more stable version. Thankfully, the process is pretty simple. If you already had an iTunes or iCloud backup, then you will be able to restore your iPhone from a backup. To do this, please take a look at our guide.

Wrapping Up

iOS 13 is a big update over its previous generation. The first beta gives us a detailed look at its new changes and features. However, it is still in the works, so it includes bugs and glitches. Apple has a lot of work to do ahead of a public release. We have to wait and see.
