Apple is fessin’ up. Batterygate? For real. The tech giant admits, bugs circling around iOS5 are eating away at some iPhones’ battery life.
In a statement released to the Wall Street Journal, an Apple spokesperson says…
“A small number of customers have reported lower than expected battery life on iOS 5 devices … We have found a few bugs that are affecting battery life and we will release a software update to address those in a few weeks.”
Oh, so it’s not that big a deal. Or is it? A writer for Daily Tech says this is the kind of language we’ve come to expect from Apple.
“Whenever Apple encounters a problem with one of its products, this is typically the “scope minimizing” statement that it likes to release.”
All of this comes after three weeks of radio silence from Cuptertino. Why the hush-hush?
ZDNet states the obvious – that’s just how Apple conducts business.
“As a swan drifts and glides along the surface of the river, its legs are frantically thrashing under the water. Apple may have ignored its customers, but it has not ignored their cries … Apple, unlike others, remains ‘royal’ in its stance: dignified, to the point, and moves on from controversy swiftly and quietly.”
The same day Apple conceded – it released a beta update of iOS5 to developers.
Among other improvements, MacRumors reports iOS 5.0.1…
“Fixes bugs affecting battery life.”
So, will Apple’s power problems hurt business? A writer for Wired says –probably not.
“The problem, although widely publicised, had little affect on iPhone sales, though: the iPhone 4 has continued to be a top-selling smartphone … Likewise, iPhone 4S sales also continue to be strong.”
