Forbes contributor Gordon Kelly with yet another smackdown of yet another Apple iOS update. I’m not sure how this constitutes news, but it’s 2015 so almost anything goes these days.
Owners of older iPhones and iPads continue to suffer a myriad of problems with iOS 8 and Apple is starting to give the distinct impression it would rather ignore them and move on.
The latest evidence came last night with the release of iOS 8.1.3, a release specifically focused on bug fixes but one which bizarrely chose to ignore the major Bluetooth, WiFi, battery and calendar problems that have affected older iPhones and iPads since iOS 8 was released more than four months ago.
There’s more presumption than news in Kelly’s contribution. Every iOS or OS X or Windows update has issues. What is seldom discussed in such contributions to news is how much the update is to blame or how many of the problems are user contributed.
We have six iOS devices running the latest version, and four Macs running the latest OS X Yosemite. Zero problems.
