Two European companies are warning users not to upgrade to iPhone 4 iOS 6.1 until Apple bug fixes – and IT departments are reporting problems too.Carriers say that users have been experiencing problems with Internet access, call texts and access Exchange from the update was released on January 28.
“Some customers may occasionally experience difficulty connecting to the network to make or receive calls or texts or to connect to the Internet. Apple is working on a solution to their software problem. Such connection problems are intermittent,” says Vodafone.
“While research continues Apple, we recommend that anyone who has not installed iOS 6.1 on your iPhone 4s should delay it until Apple has confirmed that your problem is resolved.”
And 3 Austria has launched a similar message. “Updating the iPhone 4S in iOS 6.1 could cause connection problems,” he says. “We reacted swiftly and are working with Apple. For this reason, we do not recommend installing the update.”
Meanwhile, the update is causing problems for others as well. Organizations that are connected to an Exchange server for mail and calendar services are seeing sharp spikes in the server log, apparently because of an error in the way calls are handled calendar.
“I had a user upgrade to 6.1 and immediately after completion, your phone / iPad began to cause excessive logging on the Exchange server”, a user report in a Microsoft forum. “Your device caused more than 50 GB of value records database in particular.”
Apple is reportedly working on a fix, but in the meantime a user intends to delete and recreate the mail profile, saying that this eliminates the problem. Others are simply blocking access to iOS 6.1 Changing entirely.
