Fix

A fix is a solution to a problem. The problem could be related to hardware or software, or a problem that bothers device owners in general. For instance, iPad owners could be facing an issue with the screen orientation that the screen switches between horizontal and vertical despite having the orientation lock activated. A fix would provide alternative methods to fix the screen in either horizontal or vertical position.

A fix can be a list of steps that people need to follow to solve the issue at hand or a graphical representation of what needs to be done to address a problem. Videos may also be used as a walkthrough for the fix. The fixes for the software or iOS firmware issues are mostly known as bug fixes. They are basically system changes that are designed to handle programming glitches. Several different types of iOS bugs create errors in the implementation of the system and require fixes released by Apple itself.

For instance, whenever a new iOS software is seeded to users of iDevices, it mostly includes some bug fixes. These resolve the issues users have been facing in the previous version of iOS. Siri fixes for instance have been released several times, resolving issues with particular features of Siri. Unlockboot shares all the fixes related to iOS updates, as well as fixes related to other issues faced by iPhone users. For instance, the iPhone can freeze during a software update, or see the error message “Waiting for Changes to be applied” on iTunes. In these cases, fixes solve the problem.

The site also refers to a walkthrough or a detailed step-by-step guide as a fix in some of its articles. That’s because these detailed informative posts tell people the solution to a particular problem, and the word “fix” might not necessarily be used inside the article.
