However, the new OS, regardless of its numerous exceptional features like a newly designed lock screen with more personalization features, new functionality in the iMessage application, widgets applicability on the lock screen, haptics, etc., iOS 16 is causing the users to face massive problems like flickering screen issues, huge battery drainage crises, glitching problems, display granting, green lines on the show, activation issues with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, the recent camera issue of shaking and vibrating, and more.

The update has also led some of the applications not to perform smoothly. Now, the users of version 9.79 of the Wattpad application are facing an issue. The problem is that whenever the users are pushing to the limit to open the app, the app is continuously loading, and the logo of Wattpad appears, later on, crashing the app.
