    My iphone 8 is experiencing some weird things happening lately. No notification sounds unless the screen is on and unlocked, various apps lock up and fast battery drain at times as well.

    My watch is also acting up, no notifications, super fast battery drain etc.

    I recommend you restore both the iPhone and watch and set them up as new devices.

    You can try resetting all settings prior to restoring and setting up as new to see if that fixes the problem.

    Nah, I will wipe it and start fresh. I just have to do some prep on it first. Ha ha. Thanks for the help!

    I had similar issues. Try a re-sync, that worked for me.

    Please explain further. What is a resync? Also are iOS devices supposed to show up on network lists even when you have hotspot turned off?

    To re-sync, go to the watch app on your iPhone>General>Reset>Rest Sync Data. As far as showing up on Network lists, you don't need to have the hotspot enabled, you need to be attached to a network.

    Yes. Ringer not ringing for some calls. Message notifications not sounding for some messages. Waze voice is a whisper. Shut down and restarting not soft reset. Had phone for less than a year.

    Sometimes I have that notification problem, especially when it comes to phone calls.
    But I blame iOS13 for it (not the iPhone 8) - same for battery life, latest versions of iOS13 eat way more battery than the earlier ones and the latest iOS12 ones.
    The only thing you could try is to reload iOS completely

    What version of iOS are you on? What you’ve described has been a known bug on some versions of iOS 13.

    Apple never made an 8s so we know your talking about the iPhone 8

    Just follow D’s advice and set it up as new and you should be back up and running normally again

    Every once in a while I notice I do not get notifications for any of my emails, so I check on the notifications settings and the sound is checked off for some reason. This happens usually after an iOS update and it is the first thing I look at but I’ve had it once a week now usually for at least three weeks
