Apple to roll out bug fixes for iPhone 14 Pro freezing issues soon.  (Apple)

It's been just a few days since Apple's latest iPhone 14 flagship series went on sale and already a couple of bugs have been reported by users. Yesterday, users reported that the phones' camera was causing rattling noise when used with certain apps. And the latest complaints are indicating the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max freeze after data transfers due to bugs.

Reportedly, this bug is exclusive to the Pro models only and is triggered as soon as the user attempts to restore data from iCloud via the Quick Start process from their old iPhone making it unresponsive.

Apple has acknowledged this bug and said that it is working on a fix. As reported by MacRumors, the tech giant confirmed being aware of this freezing issue in an internal memo and said that they're investigating it. However, an official fix is yet to be rolled out. The iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max users facing this issue are advised to force restart their phone if it becomes unresponsive for over five minutes. This would help the iPhone to function normally thereafter.
