iOS 5.0.1 brings more issues than it fixes
Most are aware that Apple recently pushed out an over the air update of iOS 5.0.1, an update that was supposed to cure the problems with the iPhone 4S battery drainage that many had been complaining about, but since then as we have reported several are still suffering from that battery problem, whilst it appears the update had brought more problems than it fixes.
As we mentioned earlier, Apple support forums have started seeing complaints that the iOS 5.0.1 update fails to fix the battery drainage issues; however according to an article over on PC World, iPhone users are now complaining about news problems since updating to the new firmware.
These new problems included cellular network reception issues, WiFi signal loss and microphone failure as reported by the guys over on GigaOm, whilst The Starup Foundry is also reporting that it appears that some users are also experiencing the iOS handset no longer remembers the names of contacts.
Apparently when some open up their contacts all the entries are still there however, when receiving a call or text the iPhone seems to forget the contact’s name, but the guys over at The Startup Foundry have come up with a partial fix for this problem, so if you are having difficulties, check out their website and try it out.
Word is that Apple hasn’t clarified whether these new issues are part of the few remaining problems the company is currently investigating, or whether they are totally new bugs in iOS 5.0.1.
So we’d like to hear from our iPhone toting readers out there whether updating to iOS 5.0.1 has cured all your problems or if you are also experiencing the same issues as others or indeed if you are experiencing problems we have not yet heard about, so feel free to shout out to our comments area below.
