iOS 5.1.1 update problems discussed

Just a few days ago Apple issued its latest iOS update, iOS 5.1.1 for users of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The update was released to solve issues with various bugs that needed attention but although some people have managed to update with success it seems that some others have had problems with the software update to iOS 5.1.1 and have noticed issues since installing it.

When iOS 5.1 was issued back in March we told how plenty of people were reporting problems with obtaining the update and seeing error messages instead. Although this does not appear to be a widespread issue this time it’s certainly noticeable that some people are having problems since installing the iOS 5.1.1 update.

The latest update is intended to solve problems such as an iPad network switching issue, minor AirPlay issues and problems syncing Safari bookmarks and with the Reading List. The update also fixes an issue whereby some users were seeing an ‘Unable to purchase’ alert after a successful purchase. Now it seems that while these issues have been fixed for most people some are having whole new problems.

The Apple Support Communities pages currently show plenty of questions about iOS 5.1.1 (here) and many people seem to be having problems of one kind or another. One of the most common complaints seems to be concerning battery life since updating with 5.1.1 and this thread shows quite a few users noticing battery problems with comments of severe battery drainage and some suggestions of possible ways to solve this. Other threads involve users having WiFi problems since downloading the update.

These don’t appear to be isolated incidents as a look at the MacRumors forums show similar complaints notably with comments about the battery draining more quickly again and also people who had problems installing the update and others who say their phones have crashed after the 5.1.1 update.

We’re interested to hear from any readers who have hit difficulties with the iOS 5.1.1 update. Let us know what your problem is so that we can see how widespread the issues are. Also if you have any suggestions for resolving the problems you could share them with our readers. Let us know by sending your comments.

    This update is definitely not for my i-Touch 4G which was completely fine before the iOS 5.1.1 update.  Wi-fi is terrible, apps gets shut down and freezes, the timer just keeps spinning, resulting in battery drainage.

      I have similar problem. I can delete emails, but am not able to receive or send new ones. Also my Latitude app won’t work – it says there is a network error – but safari is working fine!
      I have no idea what to do. I have done a restart. I have also tried syncing to iTunes again – it will synch, but won’t do a ‘backup’.

    my phone is just a brick. Apple’s (Westfield London) response? “Pay an
    extra £180 and get a new one”. Even though it was their own software

    I am having battery problems since updating. Apple replaced my battery in March when I started to just randomly have problems with battery drainage and charging. Then since then with each updte I have the same problem. I have gone through all the forums and done the reset etc to no avail. Now at present after letting the battery drain right down and restart it doesn’t even look like it is recharging. Yesterday took all day just to get to 35% then just drained again to 17% this morning on the charger.

    I love my apply products but this is getting frustrating. My ipad 2 updated fine.

    I updated yesterday – prior to that, no problems – now battery is draining rapidly and I barely used it today – it is at 20% and at this time of the day prior to the update I would have had at least 50% — this needs to be fixed…

    This is actually a problem that started with iOS 5.1 but it got more strange with iOS 5.1.1. When I connect the Apple VGA connector to the iPad 2 it says “This accessory is not compatible with iPad”. It still says the same thing but now it thinks the VGA connector is a dock. This bug is strange and annoying.

    I had just now updated  my iPhone 4 with iOS 5.1.1 and it’s working fine. As far as battery drainage is concerned will have to analyse it and may be able to comment in a day or two. One should not put a question mark on Apple updates and keep comparing it with other platforms. Believe the team of Steve who have a vision to follow and set standards…

    All that you have a problem with the increased use of batteries, do full restore through iTunes, and then set as new device and do not shinronize with previous Backup(restoring old settings cause battery problems, this Happens from version 5.0 on to my iPhone). I always do that and I have no battery life problems. I noticed one more thing, that if, after of use iTunes I log off from itunes account, the battery life increase by about 50%! Lifespan on my iphone with version 5.1 is between 5 and 8 days depending on usage (if i don’t log off from iTunes account than its around 2-3 days). I hope this will help someone eliminating problems.

    I too am having similar problems.  My phone wont hold it’s charge, my apps wont work and my phone is now resetting itself all the time.  All day yesterday  it was at 35% when charging.  I rang apple care as  restoring my phone from my back up did not work.  To be told that they would send me a new phone but would ear mark £415 from my account which would only be released upon them receiving my phone and them checking that there is no damage to it!

    I haven’t noticed battery issues, but my signal stinks all of the sudden. I have low 3G strength in my house already, but never had a dropped call or people saying I was breaking up until I installed the update. Now, every call is dropped and I’m getting voice mails when the phone never rang. Very frustrating.

    I was able to restore back to v. 5.1 which was fine for my iTouch 4g (1st post).  For those who want to restore:
    1. Open iTunes and connect device. Back up/sync your device to your pc via iTunes.
    2. Go to your computer’s recycle bin and restore deleted files resulted from the v.5.1.1 update.
    3. On your connected device, open summary page in iTunes.
    4.  Press ‘shift’ key then ‘update’ button.  It will open the computer’s menu to locate file.
    On Windows XP (you will need to double check location as mine is Wins 7) :Documents and SettingsApplication DataApple ComputeriTunesiPhone Software Updates
    On Windows Vista/Windows 7:UsersAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunesiPhone Software Updates
    5.  Click on file named ‘iPod4,1_5.1_9B176_Restore’ to begin restore.
    I tried to restore to v. 5.0.1 file named ‘iPod4,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore’ but it came up with an error.  At least I’m back to where it worked before the v.5.1.1.
    Hope this helps.

    The email thing is solvable by making sure you first terminate the mail app and then fully powering off the ipad. If you turn it back on the mail works again. At least thats how It went here. Since I updated my locations services icon is on at all times. There is no app listed as using the services and disabling all apps in the list has no effect either. Only turning the locatin services off completely works. And yes, faster battery drain too, but not as explicit as some other people…

    Dropped network, unable to utilize wifi although it says I’m connected and my other wifi items (MacBooks, iPads) work fine. Also – my lock screen is perpetually showing 24-hour time, while my regular display shows 12 hour time – and my options are set to 12 hour time, location USA. So it SHOULD work. This prompted my “factory reset” and it’s not going well – it’s unable to connect to wifi to access iCloud (though it actually is connected, it says it’s not).

    I downloaded the update a few days ago and my home button is not working now!  A reset seems to help initially, but then the problem starts again, first I’m just able to double click and then that stops as well.  I am certain this is not a hardware problem, as this was not a problem before and the home button works perfectly initially after reset.

    I was prompted to update to 5.1.1, and accepted only to find that a system setting had been changed without any authorisation. The SIM card PIN was turned on and set to a value that I had no clue about.
    It took a visit to my friendly telecom shop for them to obtain the PIN that had been turned on and reset the PIN to something I actually know about.
    What’s with Apple arbtirarily turning on settings without warning? If I had been somewhere with no access to my friendly telecom store I would have been in big trouble.

    Since updating to 5.1.1 on iPhone 4 I have a problem that if I go through a no signal area then the iphone just dispays “No Service” and doesnt try to search for a signal and this remains even when I return to an area with plenty of signal. Only solution I have so far is to remove sim card and reinsert or turn phone off and then on again. Both get the iphone to search for a signal. Turing airplane mode on and off doesnt help.

    Updated a couple days ago, iPod touch 4th gen, very noticeable lagging with majority of things, sometimes to the point of freezing. Messages take forever to send and one time showed that a tonne of messages re-sent upon opening app, re-opened app and was fine. Also one time browsing safari, white bars appeared across the screen before completely white-screening and restarting. Survivable issues but still rather irritating.

    I have the new generation iPad. Two days ago I updated to 5.1.1 OS. Today the touch screen stopped working. The buttons worked, but the touch screen remained frozen. it took several tries with the home button and pause button to get the screen working again. At first the iPad brought up the power off button but the screen was unresponsive to sliding to turn off the power. Finally after pressing both buttons simultaneously the iPad became responsive so that I could slide the button over to powerdown. When the iPad powered up the screen became responsive again.

    iPhone 4S – can’t really say what effect update has had on it, as the battery drain means I have largely given up on using it. Tried full reset, wipe and reload, closed all apps, killed my iCloud/MobileMe/Email etc. Still has that ‘forget to plug me in’ and ‘I shall be dead next time you touch me’ mode.

It’s basically back to where I bought it and still saying memory if full and won’t let me take pictures. Us it can’t save and everything else!

    Haven’t had any problems with my iPad prior to this update. Now, it won’t charge. And the battery has drained, so I’m pretty much left with a brick. Sucks that a software update kills the device it’s supposed to bring improvements to.

    Now I can only download apps on my Mac through iTunes. Neither my iPhone 4 or iPad 2 are doing so, either over their 3G connections or via wifi. Known thing, apparently – tried a sign out-reboot-sign in fix from the Apple forums, but still no joy had.

      I have the same problem with my iphone 4.  After few minutes of making a call, call is dropped with “called failed”, despite solid signal.  My first update (to 5.1.1) in 1.5 years was a downgrade.

    My home button stopped working once I installed iOS 5.1.1. I have tried doing a full system restore and a reset and it sometimes works and sometimes not. SOOOO very frustrating! my phone didnt have any issues before nad now even with the restore I cant go back to iOS 5.1

  86. After I have updated to ios 5.1.1 my phone just hanged on about 75% of the restore par and freeze , it just crashed and didn’t wont to do any thing but restarting it self and shows me the sign of the apple and the cable to reconnect it to ‘ i Tunes ‘ i have tried every thing to make it work but with no success so I have just downgraded to the 5.1 after two and half days of tries and wasted time .

      I agree. My iPhone 3Gs will not keep a wifi signal unless I’m in the same room as the AP. as soon as I leave it drops the signal completely and switches back to 3G. This is most annoying. I hope apple comes out with a new update soon to fix the wifi problem.

    I backed up my ipad 1 prior to upgrading to iOS 5.1.1. The update went fine except my apps are gone as well as my contacts. How do I restore all that? It’s as if I’m stsrting out with a new iPad.


  97. Ok… I restored my iPhone a week ago and it wouldn’t restore. I had to download the new iTunes, and edit the Hosts file. I did and it didn’t work. My phone would keep turning off and on every 2 seconds. I then got it to restore and it messed up again when I was playing a app called shift 2 unleashed… the car game lol. It turned off, then turned on and soon went into an infinite reboot mode. I plugged it into the computer and restored it. It took me nearly 3 hours to get it to work. It would also show the apple logo and some yellow lines going through it… like a glitch. I, today, have not put any apps on my phone. I will try to take it to apple next week and see if i can get another phone. I hope i don’t have to pay hence it is a hardware issue… i think. I did jailbreak it, but i don’t think that was the problem. It was jailbroken since the ios 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak first came out. Has anyone else had any of these issues? Send an email at hajiile24@yahoo.com to me and ill see what i can do.

      It just means that the app isn’t functional with iOS 5.1.1. Every time Apple releases an update, things change, some apps might be looking for a missing dependency or API. Look for updates for your app in a few days.

    I just updated to my iPhone to iOS 5.1.1 and now my “music” says it contains no music, but when plugged in to my computer the library is full of my music.  The songs have not appeared to transfer to my iPhone.  The other problem is that my contents says I have 5.5GB of “other” data, what does that mean and why is there so much of it?  I barely have anything on my phone.
    Re-syncing did not work, reseting did not work.  I am thinking about restoring but I am afraid it might just loose my data and not work anyway.  Why did I bother with the update?, it was working just fine before this!

    I’ve figured out, that despite how much I love Apple, they don’t test their updates enough, and pretty much take a dump on their older customers. They don’t care about older devices they still support. If your not on their new iPad or on the iPhone 4s, you can go die for all they care. They only want profit. It really pisses me off. I have a problem every freakin’ time I update, restore, or anything. My iPod currently is “Bricked” (Meaning it’s as entertaining to use as a brick, because it does nothing). Do you want to know how I bricked it? Trying to update! I did everything right, and it froze up, and is bricked. If you think that I’m overlooking something, I assure you I’m not. I am really good with Apple products, But sometimes, you just have to realize, the company is the one that sucks. In this case, it’s Apple, And they suck really hard.

    Hello everybody my name is Junior H. I updated my iphone few moments ago. I had wifi problems like many other people. Wifi would drop and wouldn’t connect to my home network. Didn”t had any problems running ios 4.3.3 I have been searching for hours for a solution but nothing that would work for me.  So I started brainwashing and I start looking at the solutions others used to get back their wifi. I figured out it has something to do with the router settings. So I connected to my router settings trough ip adress I changed the channel from 6 to 7 in setttings and in the ‘LAN’ configuration I changed my ip adress (example: to ) I rebooted my router. I jumped into my iphone 4 running ios 5.1.1, went into settings -> wi-fi ->I pressed the blue arrow icon on my network, scrolled down to renew release. So it changed my routers ip to, and BOOMM connected !!! Not having any issues whats so ever anymore, rebooted my device several times and still connected. Been online now without any drops or problems for more then 12 hours now. I think and I hope this will work for all of you that have the same problem as I did. And if i doesn’t work I would suggest to try change some settings in your router maybe upgrading newest firmwire for your router. Anyways I’m almost 100% positive that it has something to do with the router.  Well good luck to everybody having issues. If this solution worked for you pls spread the word, because there are alot of people having this problem. And if it worked I’m glad that I could make your day 🙂 Bye greeting from aruba!!

      My 8 gig 3GS iPhone does not register the SIM card so no longer works. The Genius Bar manager at Regent St said that if I read the terms before uploading 5.1.1 I would have read that this might happen and they wanted me to pay £119 to replace the phone. When I bought the 4S phone I was advised to add the Cloud to the 3GS phone to improve its functionality. I was not told of any possible malfunctions.

      When they offered me the new phone for £119 I did ask how it was my fault if I only did why they told me to do but they were not interested. I did ask if they would refurbish my phone and re sell it but the manager said that is not something they do!

Every app I use including Safari and Photos flash up and then dont load returning to the home screen. Internet connectivity is a game of roulette – will it or won’t it? Worse still is the constant need to restore. Been restoring almost every other day for the last two weeks and yes Apple I am really very tired of it. But then Apple is the friedly corporation that buys up smaller software houses just to kill them off so what do you expect.

    I have an ipad3 and iphone4. Ipad did not have problems connecting to my wifi network via airport extreme, but does sometimes just not see the network. Restarting wifi on ipad resolves this temporarily. Mail on ipad freezes, and when replying the address part of the window flashes and you cannot see any fields if you want to add another address. Iphoto also hangs, but usually recovers.

    On iphone, no wifi issues but very unstable performance. Suddenly after the update many websites say i cannot view them since my software is too old and that i should upgrade to a newer browser.

    Those are my few issues which i do hope apple will resolve soonest. I have never had to reboot any of their devices but this is beginning to become common practise after the last update.

    After update of original iPad to iOS5.1.1 a few minutes ago, various news organization web pages (NPR, Washington Post) have crashed multiple times a few seconds after entering them, and video on Was Post had no sound. What’s up? How can this be fixed?

    Since updating my Ipod touch to the new software my Wi-Fi has dropped off and I have no way of turning it back on since the software is not longer present on the device. I have resync’d, restored and reloaded it several times. What is the point of purchasing Icloud when I no longer have access to it? Several of my downloaded songs from Itunes skip or will not play at all. Half the songs on my playlists that were present on the Ipod prior to the download now will not sync and my battery life is in the crapper. Someone at Apple needs a raise because this new software doesn’t work at all. Way to go Apple!

    increased missed calls when the phone didn’t ring. Dropped calls or unable to hear me so I end up using the landline.

    When I hang up the phone the caller id stays on visible for more than 30 sec before going back Also I found network status on phone changing frequently when previously that never happened or noticed it before.Losing half of my contacts when the phone was going into a paddy and then coming back

    Battery life crashed. Drains from 100% to 11% in 6 hours. The day before the update my battery life was at least 12+ hours. My screen is also not as responsive and freezes. I did do the reset, drain, and recharge trick and that did nothing to improve it. Going to apple store tomorrow!!!! Sucks!!!

    i have an ipod 4g and WAS on ios 5.0 hoping that i could avoid the 5.1 battery draining problem so i waited for the 5.1.1 which WAS suppose to fix this problem, i only see that this was a huge mistake for my battery and i fear my internal battery is going to suffer in future use :/ i have though had no problems with my sound, keyboard ticks, music…but i have noticed once exiting an app and going to the springboard my device pauses for about 5 seconds before being responsive, and no matter what notification app i have under settings>notification center, i dont get notifications, im fine with that, id still like to be able to do something on my ipod than have it constantly dying while on sleep mode, i really hope apple starts fixing bugs for iphone/ipod firmware first, as far as i was aware of it, when ipad updates and fixes starting “fixing” ipad related bugs, it has screwed over the user of iphone/ipod user, thanks apple for the amazing fix, it really helped everyone didnt it….

    I Have an iphone 4 and since updating to IOS 5.1.1 the battery drainiage is
    extreme, I now how to keep the phone plugged into the USB when in the office ,
    if I am out of the office the battery will last 1/2 a day if im lucky and that
    is with mild use…. 
    I Have reinstalled IOS 5.1.1 several times even setting the phone up as a new phone….still no improvement

    From what i have read online this seems to be an issue
    affecting iphone 4 not iphone 4S….

    I hope Apple get there act together soon as a lot of iphone 4 users are already upset at being denied Siri, and now to add insult to injury we are left with a phone that wont last half a day under normal use…….because of an update that apple wont let us downgrade from.

         a) reboot WiFi router

         c) iPhone hard reboot

    I unawarely updated my 3GS to iOS 5.1.1 recently and found that my safari crashes constantly even when I’m reading or surfing the net. I heard watching YouTube clips that are over an hour long can do that but I’m just reading a web page. It has never happened before until I updated to 5.1.1. Also the typing is a bit weird now. The auto correction does t always work like it does and the sensitivity is a bit worse. I’m not sure if that’s just due to wear n tear or the update but it seemed to have surfaced since the update. Haven’t noticed the battery drain or wifi problems. Also now when I press the lock button, the click comes at least 3 or more seconds later. Why is that so??

      Have you found anything further about your problem? I’m having a similar issue (my phone will be in “No Service” mode for an hour and then all of a sudden go to 4 or 5 bars of signals strength (my spouse has a phone on the same network with no such issues, so I know this isn’t a carrier problem). I went by the Apple Store and they first told me to reset my network (System Preferences > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings). I tried that for a few days but that didn’t solve anything. So back I go, and this time the folks at Apple swapped my SIM — but the problem has persisted (it actually might be worse, but I haven’t had the new SIM long, so it is too soon for me to tell).

      Ok. When i first got my iPhone in 2011, i didn’t know much about apple, or any apple products of that matter. I was only 13… i didnt waste my time looking up when the next own was coming out. But today, i am lol. Even though this is not a correct response, i can give you one. I have been having this isue with my iPhone 4. Not to long ago, it was jailbroken. It did a crazy thing where it would go into a infinite reboot mode. It was on IOS 5.0.1. I decided to update to IOS 5.1.1, and that didnt help. It seems to be both a hardware problem, and a ios probelm. The hardware problem deals with the battery. sometimes this peoblem trigures the phone to just randomly shut down on its own. the IOS probelm is within ios 5. Ive come across people who have actually hade no problems when updating to the new ios 5. They told me nothing has occured. I digged in further to do a thural investigation, and it seemed people experienced this problem after updating to ios 5. Some even said they replaced the battery, and nothing has happened after they replaced it. My advice… if you realy need a phone, replace your battery. As for me, im 14. im just gonna wait untill the next iPhone comes out. As of right now, i dont have a working phone, but i could get one. I hope this problem doesnt happen again to you or anyone my friend. BEST OF LUCK!!!

    Just bought an iPod Touch 4 for my daughter. What a piece. Unit came with OS 5.1.1. The unit hung multiple times during setup (no less than a dozen times). Wifi is essentially non functional as it always says “Unable to connect” even though all other wireless devices connect with no issues. Manual config of Wifi settings are no help. (oh and the error messages are worthless).

    In short, this is my first experience with an apple product since Apple IIe and I have to say Apply has nothing on anyone and certainly not reliability.

    This said, it’s possible that there is some obscure router setting that apple is dependent upon but All other wireless devices (including our new thermostat) work right out of the box including the China made Android Tablet so why not Apple. Don’t know and don’t care any more. It’s back to the store and off to buy a 7″ Android tablet for the same price or less and I’ll Never touch an Apple again.

    BTW, anyone at apple know what “testing” is???

    Any way, My first exp with Apply OS 5.1.1.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x.x is that it’s CRAP.

    Tried to upgrade the OS due to general unresponsiveness, wiped everything from the phone. Had to connect to iTunes to restore (a FIVE HOUR download!), which failed (another FIVE HOUR download!) Fingers crossed. Apple need to stop letting their (pretty loyal) customers down.

    I updated to 5.1.1 and all of my text messages disappear and all of my images disappear.  I take a picture with my camera, it makes the normal click sound, shows a picture in the small image box and when I click on the box it says no images are on my phone.  With the texting, it shows I have a message on the home screen but when I click it takes me to no message.  I send a message and it doesn’t show anything on my thread.

    Both my husband and I have iphone 3gs and ever since we updated to 5.1.1, both our cell phones have developed signal problems. Since the update, neither phone ever goes past 3 signal bars.  At our home, we used to get full bars and the 3G worked wonderfully.  Good luck now browsing the net when the bars are at 3 or lower. Sometimes the phones even show NO SERVICE rather than a low signal.   This is unbelievable!!!  How can they issue defective software to this extend????   I mentioned this to their support people, and they said that there must be damage to the antenna inside the phone. REALLY??????????????? two phone at the same time somehow got their antennas damaged, and what a coincidence…it was after the phones were updated to 5.1.1 that we suddenly broke both our antennas on the same week!

    UNBELIEVABLE!!!  Be responsible for your programming mistakes! That’s called working under deadlines that wouldnt have been met unless they threw out the update at us as it came… problems and all!  Thanks a lot APPLE!

    now we’re using SAMSUNGS until they get the next update for the iphones.

    oh wait….. maybe we should buy a new iPhone instead that doesn’t suffer of this sort of trouble.. Oh wait….that’s no possible, cuz it’s still the same company behind it. lol   wow…. too bad google doesnt have a phone….;) lol

    1. mine too my phone is virtually unusable same thing mine only one bar or no service yet when i went to ibiza 10 days ago my movistar signal was constantly 5 bars )” net work provider . I have had my phone looked at and declared ok so naffed off its basically an ipod touch now. Any iideas anyone

    I tried updating my 3GS and, when the update was finished, it failed to restore (I didn’t even know it would have to restore). So I ended up wiping the whole thing clean, hoping to just resync everything from scratch. But it wouldn’t sync. Fortunately, I was able to use an older restore and get everything back, but now I’m stuck using the old iOS. However, from what I’m reading below, maybe that’s not such a bad thing.

    Hey, I’m on O2 with an iPhone 4. My signal hasn’t dropped that much since the update. However, has done more now since the O2 blackout. It started off similar to other peoples phones, I could hear people on my phone when I called them, but they can’t hear me. Then the blackout, I do not get any signal and ALWAYS No Service everywhere I go. If I’m walking about my phone will receive a text and to my excitement of finally getting service, I whip my phone out of my pocket and guess what?.NO SERVICE. I have tried various “fixes” but no joy. No Service for me is literally 23 hours and 50 minutes a day. I see the light for about 10 minutes sometimes.. Not often enough.
    It’s really annoying and after reading many posts about this on many forums, I think it’s a problem with O2, not my phone, which I thought it was to start with. They’re poop, putting it very politely. Also, since the blackout they offered me (and everyone else) £10 voucher to spend in store. This means travelling to a store and finding something that is £10, which is very unlikely to happen since the majority of products they sell is over £10. They’re excluding any top ups so we can’t even buy a top up to gain any additional 10% back every quarter. BarStools is what I think. Switching to T-Mobile shortly. Most of my friends are on T-Mobile and have never complained. Think I’ll migrate.

    After updating a new iPod which i had never used before, the camera will refuse to work. Although the app will open, it either stays with the shutter closed or the screen stays completely black. Even if I change to the front camera. I thought the iPod must be broken and thought nothing of it however afterwards I updated another iPod touch, the camera refuses to work again however on the second iPod it is possible by choosing the camera option on the locked screen. I have tried resetting them both, numerous times. The second iPod never used to do it as I had used it in the past therefore the only thing linking the two is the update. Is anyone else having problems with the camera?

    I have had my iphone since January but in the last few weeks I have been unable to transfer photos to my PC, whereas I could before. Now when I connect via USB the PC wants to setup another network [home, work, or public] and also prompts an HP back-up service screen. The phone is listed in the PC auto play options but does NOT appear as a device in windows explorer, hence I cannot see the iphone drive from where I would normally copy photos.

    I have no imported photos in my camera roll and the phone is unlocked. I do get the familiar ‘beep’ signalling some level of device recognition.

    Hello all,

    I have recently upgraded to to ISP 5.2.1 on my iPhone 4. This has caused my home button to be intermittent or not work at all. I have tried to recalibrate the home button, but to no success also I have tried a restore and setup the iPhone as new with a new name. I am still unable to use the home button. I am currently using assitive touh which gives me a onscreen home button. My girl friend also has ISP 5.1.1 and her iPhone has been working fine, but recently it crashed, no apps and the home button did not work. Was working for calls. This has been restored 5 times now and still the home button does not work. This is using assitive touh presently but this phone is only 4 months old.

    Any advice you can give would be great. My advice to other iPhone users is not to upgrade unless you have to 🙂

It came back after about 24 hours and I thought all was OK but it drops regularly and now has gone completely for two days. Tried all the suggestions on the forums bar a complete reset and reinstall. Will take it back to the shop today as still under warranty. It was an over the air upgrade rather than via iTunes if that makes a difference.

    I dropped my 3GS down the loo ( a classic I know!) fished it out and dried it in a bag of rice for a day ( it helped that I had an Otterbox with port covers on) and hey presto, it worked again!, then it died… 🙁 so I trundled off to Apple, and they gave me a new one (3GS) for £119 with 5.1.1 installed, I asked if there were any issues with 5.1.1,guess what they told me? “NO” !!!! that’s where the fun starts, as for the past week I’ve had about 6hrs where I’ve been able to use the iphone, as a phone!
    Now that I’ve found out it’s a rather large issue, I’m a bit miffed to say the least, as I need my phone to be contactable as my son suffers from febrile seizures, so if he’s at nursery, and I’m not home, I need to be contactable! likewise if I’m out with him and need to call an ambulance…. that’s before I even get to the fact that I work freelance, and need to be contactable for work!!!!

    Good news is, that iOS 6 will be here very soon, and hopefully, they’ll sort this issue out.
    I’m off to Apple tomorrow and I’m not leaving until I have a phone that works, otherwise I’ll be going to trading standards and kicking up one hell of a stink!
    I’ve just bought a new ipad, which thankfully seems to work fine on 5.1.1 so I’ve just shelled out £518 and will need to upgrade my imac later this year, so that’s another £1000+ so they better sort me out!

    After installing the new iOS 5.1.1 update, now the password to my iPad won’t work. I’ve even done a restore and reset the password but if I turn off my iPad or it goes to sleep, when I try to get back in, is says the password is wrong (although on occasion it actually works). Any ideas?

    I have an iphone 4 and while syncing, discovered I was supposed to upgrade to 5.1.1. When I tried to update the software, it ran a backup first, which failed repeatedly. Finally, after several attempts over several days, the backup went through (a multi-hour process in itself). Then as the process continued, I began getting various repeated error messages about unknown errors and being unable to connect, being unable to sync because not enough space was available to store all of the items in the itunes library. After multiple attempts to start sync, it finally went through once, but left my phone in a factory default set-up mode. Now it seems to have about 1/4 of the pictures I had, all of the apps, but none of the contacts, calendars, or messages. I keep all of my business calendars and contacts on there, and since it is backed up into itunes, I figured the information was safe. Now I have a phone I can’t use, my appointment calendar has been wiped, and my contacts are gone from my phone. I can’t seem to get itunes to revert to an earlier restore point than the post-FUBAR one. Any suggestions aside from continuing to curse apple/itunes?

    Whenever I attempt to crop specific photos in my camera roll directly from the camera app or the photos app, my iPhone 3GS turns off the second I touch the button. This only happens with one or two photos at a time out of about 270 photos, and the first time I noticed it was soon after I updated to iOS 5.1, but I just deleted the photo causing trouble.
    It seems to be happening again, but I do not want to delete the pic this time and I would like to know what is causing this. Also, the pic that was doing that last time was a screenshot, as is the pic this time.

    Same deal – sporadic updating, checking for mail, no safari, severe battery drainage, for the last 2 months. Forcing us all to buy iphone 5????? Reboot, changing parameters does not solve MAJOR issues.

    I tried to upgrade my 3G from 4.1 to 5.1.1 and halfway through upgrading itunes announced that the iphone cannot be upgraded and quit leaving the phone totally unusable and wiped. Even attempts to restore didnt work. I had to take it to a service centre to be repaired back to the 4.1 version. Im never upgrading again even though it means i cant use most of the cool new apps out there!

    I have had a decreased battery life but my most annoying issue is that safari no longer works on my iPhone. I downloaded a secondary browser app and this app works; however, it has no history or bookmarks in this app. It is really frustrating!! Also the connectivity issues seem to be with the network and wifi. On the network safari just doesn’t work at all and on wifi it will not connect to whatever network I am trying to connect to at that time. HELP??!?

      Also I am having issues with downloading apps. I have plent if GBs left on my phone, but when I try to download most apps it gets about half way done downloading and quits and comes up with an error message. I am on the sprint network, just changed over from another worthless iPhone carrier. Any sprint customers noticing this is an issue or is this an issue with apple and the new OS5.1.1???

    After the update I can’t go on safari, I can’t save any pictures, I can’t use ANY apps for more then 3-4 minutes before it force closes, I have maybe an hour of battery life and i feel like I’m troubleshooting more then its worth for the I-Pod. Is there a way to go back before the update? It at least worked properly before the update and I feel like the last two updates went for nothing with this new one which makes the I-Pod unusable. Fix this please otherwise I have to buy a new mp3 player. ):
