Apple’s iOS 5.0.2 update is expected to finally fix the battery issues surrounding their new handset the iPhone 4S, which Apple is said to be working on, double-time, to deliver. Sadly, the Cupertino firm experienced a bump along the road, which threatens to delay the update from rolling out as scheduled.
The cause of the delay was due to memory issues. Apple developers would like to get these issues fixed before rolling out the battery fix. It seems the company would like to get everything done, instead of rolling out a follow-up update for a different issue.
Other issues of the iOS 5 involve Wi-Fi issues surrounding the iPad, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S have been discovered recently. We’re hoping the iOS 5.0.2 update addresses these issues as well.
The iOS 5 running on the iPhone 4S is currently subject to scrutiny from a number of disappointed new owners. Other issues involve users experiencing white noise while on voice calls. Initially, the problem has been reported to affect vice calls when either third-party or Apple headsets are plugged in. Recently, reports have flooded Apple’s support forums of the issue affecting ordinary voice calls.
We’re hoping Apple rolls out the iOS 5.0.2 update soon, and we’re hoping it addresses all the issues surrounding its devices particularly the iPhone 4S. We’ll keep you posted once we hear more news on the update’s progress.
According to a report, Apple has informed its AppleCare staff to get ready for a massive rush of iOS inquiries starting on the 10th of October. This suggests that the iOS 5 will be rolling out on the 10th of October. Apple Insider reports that the support team was notified to expect eight times more calls from customers.
If these reports are accurate, this would mean that the Apple iPhone 5 should follow soon after the 10th of October. The 5th generation iPhone is said to be the first to be pre-installed with the new OS.
This is similar to the iOS 4 and the iPhone 4. The iOS 4 rolled out on the 21st of June in 2010. The iPhone 4 followed soon after.
The iOS 5 will be rolling out to Apple’s iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2, and iPod Touch. It will be adding a number of new features such as the iMessage app, which is similar to RIM’s Blackberry Messenger.
Another new feature is Apple’s cloud storing service, iCloud. This service will allow you to store your multimedia, documents, and contacts up min the Apple cloud.
