That’s right – more issues have now surfaced about the iPhone 5 since its release. Apple reported selling over 5 million devices the first weekend of its release in stores. Only just hours after taking their devices home, many users took to the internet to complain about several issues.
What’s Wrong With The iPhone 5?
For starters, users reported having issues with the wifi not connecting properly. Having a background in home networking, I presumed maybe the problem was within layer 8 of the OSI model “the end user”, but this isn’t the case. Users reported not being able to connect to any wifi network and if they were, the connection wasn’t stable. This is a huge issue for someone wanting to save money or time using cell data.
Another issue users reported was hearing strange noises inside the device. Honestly, I think I’ll have to confirm this one on my own but the fact that there were too many reports about this I had to talk about it. If anyone can personally confirm this from their own experience I’d love to hear about it.
Lastly, there’s the huge issue with Apple maps. That’s right, Apple got rid of Google maps and is now using it’s own maps application. Now, I have seen Apple maps in action and it is no Google maps. Google maps is simply better with less headache. Users are reporting Apple maps getting them completely lost with “wrong turn”, showing large dots on the map, and Apple maps being less accurate with directions.
There’s Always Hope With Apple
Now, if you’re an iProduct fan like myself then hang in there. There is always hope for Apple. Just like any new product, there will be bugs and they will be fixed with a patch or update. Obviously, Andrones are going to take advantage and dish out all they can while they still can. Apple’s Tim Cook has voiced his apologies for several issues and promises to make it right. Stay tuned. As for me, I’ll continue to wait for an iPhone 5s or the iPhone 6. Unless of course, Apple decides to send me a free iPhone 5. Only then could I give my true opinion and personal review of the iPhone 5.
