One time or the other, we all have faced issues with our smartphones. Chances are, these problems are also faced by other users. A study by Freedom Mobiles has compiled a list of over 130 keywords that are the most Google searched problems on Apple iPhone. As per the study, ‘iPhone is disabled, connect to iTunes’ is the most common iPhone issue faced by iPhone users around the world. The keyword has an average Global Search volume of 42,000 monthly searches.

‘Forgot iPhone passcode’ and ‘Face ID not working’ are the second and third most commonly faced issues with a search volume of 38,000 and 32,000, respectively.

The study results are categorized by the UK, the US, and Global Search volume allowing users to see if the issues are faced by users across the world or are specific to particular locations.
