On the Apple smartwatch side, users have noticed data processing bugs: Apple Watch does not save all fitness data and health apps sometimes refuse to open. Here is an overview of the problems you may be having and how to fix them.

It is now obvious: Apple has recognized that the latest updates (iOS 14 for the iPhone and watchOS 7 for the Apple Watch) could cause a number of problems.

Moreover, the brand released iOS 14.0.1 only eight days after iOS 14. This new version addresses problems such as: resetting the browser to default settings for the e-mail service, the photo display bug or the bad display of News Widget. No change on the battery life side. Here is the list of issues that you may continue to experience on your iPhone and Apple Watch.

  2. Create a backup of your device (open the app Settings > tap on your name then on iCloud> activate Health if it isn’t already> tap on iCloud Backup)
