Reset your iPhone/Apple Watch if you are facing these issues on iOS 14/watchOS 7

Every new release of software comes with the usual bugs. Apple's recent release of iOS 14 and watchOS 7 is no exception. 

Apple has published a support document detailing the potential issues that users may face after updating to iOS 14 and watchOS 7, and how to resolve them. There are 7 commonly reported issues on iOS 14 and watchOS 7: 

  • Your workout route maps are missing in the Fitness app on iPhone for previous GPS-enabled workouts from your Apple Watch.
  • The Activity, Heart Rate, or other health-related apps fail to launch or load data on your Apple Watch.
  • The Fitness app or Health app fail to launch or load data on your iPhone.
  • The Health app or Fitness app is reporting an inaccurate amount of data storage on your iPhone.
  • The Activity app is reporting an inaccurate amount of data storage on your Apple Watch.
  • Your environmental sound levels data or headphone audio levels data from Apple Watch is missing in the Health app on iPhone.
  • Increased battery drain on your iPhone or Apple Watch.

If you experience two or more of the above issues, Apple recommends that you do a reset of the devices to prevent further data loss. Before you do so, you need to create a backup of your Apple Watch and iPhone.
