Early Users Reporting Few Problems with the new iPhone 5
The complete sell-out of early stock of Apple’s new iPhone 5 suggests that almost all present day consumers are fully captivated with the launch of the latest iPhone edition. But, the bitter truth is that not every early consumer who has acquired the latest iPhone 5 gadget is satisfied, as some consumers recently reported various problems related to the Wi-Fi connections of the new device.
Consumers have even reported issues related to scratches and scuffing in the gadget’s new aluminum covering. Most of the early buyers are largely discontented with the new revamped Maps app of the new iPhone 5. The latest Siri app incorporated in the device easily gets puzzled when questioned regarding the present weather conditions in many prominent United States cities.
And the iPhone manufacturer is also discontinuing the service of the free storage space of around 20-GB that was extended to earlier MobileMe users, which would definitely make it extremely tough for some consumers to support their latest iPhone 5 device to iCloud. As per the recent updates, many consumers in the company’s support forums are registering issues related to WPA2 sheltered Wi-Fi networks.
The most frequently reported issue is an apparently slow internet connection, which doesn’t look to influence the previous iOS gadgets that are present in the same network. Even though that problem could be easily alleviated by just switching off LTE option in “settings” as suggested by some consumers, the problem appears extremely annoying, especially to novices.
One consumer in the company’s forum asserted that AppleCar is actually well aware of the problem, and is presently attempting to fix the issue, which has resulted mainly due to a software issue. Individual hardware related problems, or even inability to properly attune with some Wi-Fi base stations could be other major reasons for the issue, since not all users of the latest device are confronting problems.
The latest anodized aluminum covering provided with the new Apple device is quite opposing to normal scratching; however, the chamfered border present around the display could wear down, disclosing the glossy bare aluminum below. As recently reported by AllThingsD, there have been general claims among the consumers regarding nicks, scratches, and other marks on the device’s anodized surface. AllThingsD has also mentioned that the aluminum casing of new iPhone5 gadget fails to provide the same superior scratch-resistant ability as that of the stainless steel casing that was used in both iPhone 4 and 4S devices.
