The iOS 5.0.1 update promised to address the battery issues surrounding Apple’s latest smartphone the iPhone 4S. Despite the promise, customers flooded the company’s support pages with complaints of the problem getting worse. Apparently, the Cupertino firm continues to investigate these battery problems.
Apple told AllthingsD, “The recent iOS software update addressed many of the battery issues that some customers experienced on their iOS 5 devices. We continue to investigate a few remaining issues.”
When the iOS 5.0.1 update rolled out last Friday, many thought this would be the end of the iPhone 4S’s battery woes. Some complained that the update gave their smartphone the problem, when they didn’t experience any battery issues in the past. Some complained that the update made the problem much worse. Sadly, Apple is yet to announce when a new update will address the new problems.
Issues surrounding the iPhone 4S do not end here. Apart from the smartphone’s battery woes, it also has an issue with voice calls. Initially, reports started pouring in on an echo affecting voice calls when headphones were plugged in. Later on, customers complained they experienced white noise even when the headsets were not plugged in.
Bottom line, Apple has to sort out these issues pronto before their customers decide to jump ship and get their hands on upgrade to either Nokia’s new Windows Phone Mango-powered Lumia 800 or Samsung’s new Android flagship the Galaxy Nexus.
Are you one of the iPhone 4S owners suffering from these problems? Can’t wait for another update to address these issues, or are you afraid it will just make things worse? Voice out your frustrations through a comment.
Apple’s support forums reveal that more owners of the iPhone 4S are complaining about the phone’s voice calls. It looks like the problem is further intensifying.
The forums are flooded with massive complaints from owners of the iPhone 4’s successor. Customers complain about audio disappearing with both inbound and outbound calls. Pages upon pages worth of complaints are starting to pile up, which suggests that the problem may be even bigger than the iPhone 4’s antenna problems.
Initially, the problem was thought to only affect a small number of iPhone 4Ses. Customers have reported to experience an irritating echo effect when either Apple or third-party headphones were plugged in. However, more of the smartphone’s users have been coming forward claiming that the problem is also experienced without the headphones plugged in. It looks like Apple is facing widespread scrutiny. What good is any phone if it will not allow you to make and take calls?
Aside from the iPhone 4S’s voice call problems, it is known to drain the batteries faster than expected; Siri reveals personal information, and a hacker revealed that an iOS bug allows other people to steal personal data such as contacts, photos, and sending text messages through the phone without its users even knowing.
According to some users, the voice call issues of the iPhone 4S can be resolved by tapping on the handset’s speaker button. Others claim that a system restore also provides a temporary fix.
