Apple iOS 4 Software Update

As promised, Apple released the much awaited iOS 4 yesterday morning, around 11 AM US Pacific Time. The Apple iOS 4 which will ship with the iPhone 4 on June 24th was released for download a couple days earlier for iPod Touch, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS owners. Multitasking, folders, unified inbox, iBooks, custom playlists, 5x digital zoom, home screen wallpaper, gift apps, spell checking and wireless keyboard are some of the 100 new features included in the Apple iOS 4 update.

With all those cool new features, a lot of iPod Touch and iPhone 3G/3GS users rushed to download and install the iOS 4 update. While most users are happy with the upgrade and didn’t experience any problems, the same isn’t true for others who are reporting several problems and bugs after the installing the update. Here are some of the iOS 4 update problems that users have reported to BGR.

Apple iOS 4 Update Problems:

  • Photos synced with iPhoto turn are extremely blurry
  • Update deletes all contacts, and backups will not restore them
  • MMS no longer works
  • Push notifications not functioning
  • Auto-lock is set at one minute and the option to change this is greyed out
  • Update fails and device reboots endlessly

Aside from these problems, a lot of iPod Touch and iPhone users who updated to the latest version are complaining about batteries draining faster after the update. With all these bugs being reported, it seems that the Apple iOS 4 release didn’t go smoothly as planned. According to some users who called Apple support regarding these issues, that Apple is well aware of these bugs and that they will have all the bugs fixed by Friday, June 25th. So if you’re experiencing problems with your iOS 4 update or planning on updating, I suggest that you wait until Apple releases a newer version that address and fixes all these bugs.

Anyone updated their iPod Touch or iPhone 3G/3GS to iOS 4? Did the update go smoothly or did you also experience the bugs reported by other users? Please share your thoughts.

    Alright. This new update. Is the Worst. I lost. Pictures. Contact Info. All the apps (but redownloaded.) Safari is ridiculously pitifully slow. Ontop of that, my dock did not turn into the grey one that the iOS4 looks as. NEITHER. Can my iPod multitask with this update. Like it’s supposed to. I backed up my iPod. And can’t get my songs. It wants me to REPURCHASE all of them. Bogus ass update. Not worth it. iOS3.1 was way more efficient.

    I updated my iPod touch 3rd gen and anything that uses the Internet is so slow! I tried restoring it but the software is still 4.0 and it didn’t help at all. I wanna punch Steve jobs.
