iPhone users on iOS 6.1 facing battery life and overheating issues
iOS 6.1, has been reportedly causing some serious issues among users
iOS 6.1 is only two weeks old and already it has been generating plenty of online chatter – though much of it has been less than complimentary, and new reports have emerged over the weekend which suggest that the update has been causing iPhone users to experience overheating problems with their smartphone and many have also reported a significant drop in battery life.
Apple’s support forums have been inundated with complaints from disgruntled users, many of whom claim that the iOS 6.1 update has rendered their device close to useless. Poster’s seem to be detailing the same issues too, those of battery draining around 10 percent every 45 minutes to one hour, and device’s cranking up the warmth to a degree which was unseen prior to the last major update.
The issues aren’t limited to heat and battery life though. Many users have reported hardware problems since updating, such as hardware buttons no longer functioning as they once did, and users of U.K. carrier Vodafone’s service were hit by a bug which rendered their cellular data service as useless – which prompted the carrier to send an SMS to its 80 million subscribers to tell them not to install the iOS 6.1 update.
Device's running version 6.1 have also been banned by many Enterprise customers owing to reported problems with Exchange server calls.
There has been no official word from Apple as yet, but we’re sure Cupertino’s finest will roll out a speedy update to save users from these problems – after all, that’s kind of what paying the Apple premium’s all about.
