It has always surprised me to see how many people get absolutely excited for the new Apple iOS update for their new iPhone. Months before the release date, people constantly talk about the new alleged features and apps that come with the new update. People always seem to be over joyous days before an update release because they all believe that it will make their phone that much better, and who wouldn’t want the best possible phone?
Almost one year ago, Apple released the iOS 5 update for all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users. With this upgrade came massive bragging rights against the non-iphone users. However, many iPhone users saw many problems with their phone after downloading the new iOS 5 upgrade. The iOS 5 upgrade brought about phone wipes and erased contacts. Some people complained about their apps and social media contacts being wiped from their phones. Needless to say, the iOS 5 update was not a fun one for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users.
Yet, Apple fans were still excited this past month for the new iOS 6 upgrade release. It is fascinating to see the dedication people have to Apple. Being an iPhone user, I too was excited for the iOS 6 release, but I also had my doubts. I personally had no problems upgrading my phone to the iOS 5, but that just meant that I was overdue for a major update problem to occur.
Well the iOS 6 was release in September and immediately people starting chatting about the new map application. As most people complain about the lack of improvement in the maps department, other people are complaining about the lack of damage control Apple does with their new upgrades. With the release of the iOS software, other problems began to arise.
New iOS 6 users started to complain about Wi-Fi problems in the past few weeks. Complaints ranged from not being able to connect, to not even being able to turn on their Wi-Fi connection. You would think that after the iOS 5 debacle, that Apple would try their hardest to make sure that the iOS 6 release went smoothly. That was obviously not the case.
Understandably, no matter what Apple does to improve their products, people will always find something to complain about. The best Apple can do is up their damage control.
