iOS/iPadOS Bugs


  • If I add an international keyboard (Chinese, for example), my iPhone automatically installs the dictionary/dictionaries for the language. But, if I delete the keyboard, the dictionary file remains. My iPhone should prompt me if I would also like to remove the associated dictionary file as well.


  • Rearranging apps is very touch sensitive. I have difficulty moving apps to new locations as they tend to exit the folder or nudge other apps, affecting the organization.
  • On the iPad, when you open an app folder, then open an app, then return to the app folder, as soon as you scroll to the previous or next page(s), the corners shrink slightly.
  • I never want Siri voice feedback. When I go into Siri Feedback Settings, the option I would choose is “Only with ‘Hey Siri’”, but I have “Listen for ‘Hey Siri’” turned off, so this isn’t exactly an accurate description.


  • “Echo” screen effect does not account for iPad orientation.


  • When I sort notes by title within the app, and sort notes by title in Settings > Notes, when I go back to in-app sorting, "Default (Title)" and "Title" are displayed. This is ubiquitous.
  • Accuracy when adjusting document scan corners is very difficult because your finger obstructs the view of the corners. This should be offset.


  • When adding a contact's FaceTime Audio or Video phone number to Favorites, and their contact card contains multiple FaceTime-compatible numbers (i.e., personal and work), you're given just one option to select from — FaceTime. Tapping the selected "FaceTime" option from Favorites will contact all FaceTime-compatible numbers in the contact card. You should be given the option to select the number you want to add as the favorite.


  • If I have a large amount of files in my "Recently Deleted" folder in Apple Photos (tens of thousands of files), the "Delete All" button will not work. I have to manually remove about a thousand at a time.


  • When I share a reminder list to someone’s email address, their avatar is correctly displayed next to their name in the reminder list as the person I’m sharing with. When I share to the person’s phone number, the avatar does not display. Instead it just displays a graphic with their initials.
  • If I accidentally complete a reminder, I can go back and remove the completion “check,” and the reminder will return to my list of uncompleted items but then my reminders list will have two instances of that reminder if I have it set to repeat — the upcoming instance (which I unmarked as completed), as well as the next instance of that reminder. So, I have the two of the same reminder for two separate dates. I would like my list to look the same as it did before I tapped on complete reminder — just the one reminder, and not the upcoming reminder as well as the one that comes after that (for a repeating reminder).
  • I can't drag lists that have been shared with me into a new group. Also, if I create a new group, and edit group settings to include the newly-added shared lists, they do not appear.
  • When selecting a proximity alert location, you have to tap “< Details” to go back. This is confusing because it doesn’t give the impression that the location is saved. There should be a separate confirmation button, rather than going back.
  • Settings > Calendar > Start Week On: When creating a new event, the calendar will be displayed with the first day of the week being whatever I set it to. When setting a date for a reminder, there is no way to change the default calendar display with the first day of the week starting on Sunday.


  • When editing a saved bookmark or favorite URL, it is not apparent that you can use the trackpad feature without the space button. You just tap and hold in the empty space where the space button would be. I think Apple should put something in that space to let users know they can still use the trackpad feature.


  • Settings > General > iPhone Storage > Watch: When I delete an Apple Watch backup, it kicks me back to the previous menu.
  • When I attempt to paste the URL to a subscribed calendar into the Server field, it only prompts me if I want to copy the text. I have to long press a second time for the paste option to appear. Alternatively, if I press and hold, it works every time. For some reason, this field is defaulting to the copy action.


  • Glyphs for the “Notes” or “Find My“ shortcuts cannot be changed.
  • When I add a shortcut to the home screen, if I delete the shortcut from the Shortcuts app, the bookmark remains on the home screen. As it is unusable without the shortcut, I think it should also be deleted. Bugs

  • Spell check doesn't work in Notes.
  • Typing enter in Notes to begin a new line doesn't always work.

Check if you can delete multiple images of a messages conversation by tapping the „select“ button in the top right corner.

For me it doesn’t work, like I cannot tap (it doesn’t recognize my tap on the images to select them for deletion)

I just tested this and it does work correctly for me.
