Apple Struggles to Fix Problems in Failing iOS Platform

Apple's release of iOS 6.1.1 fixes a crippling bug long outstanding in the already unpopular iPhone 4S. The bug caused 3G networking issues and many headaches for the affected users. This is only one bug in a swarm of engineering debacles revolving around one of the most avoided product upgrades since the iPhone 4S. Some say that iOS 6 is "nothing but trouble," and the future of the platform looks bleak.

The uphill battle to restore Apple's crumbling reputation continues with issues regarding Microsoft Exchange. Apple products running the defective OS were observed to cause excessive logging to Exchange servers and slowing them to a crawl. The problem was found to reside in Apple's code that syncs a user's Exchange mailbox and calendar. The way that the faulty code handles exceptions is the cause for "rapid growth in transaction logs, CPU use, and memory consumption." Microsoft announced that they would be willing to work with Apple on fixing the issue; however, they, like the iPhone and iPad users have yet to receive a real solution from the company for nearly a month. Apple's poor response time to the pressing matter has led businesses to ban iPhones and iPads from connecting to their servers. Since iOS users lack the basic freedom to roll back their operating system, they remain at the mercy of Apple's clumsy handling of the situation.

Apple is even slower to repair the iPhone's Wifi issues that have been plaguing users for months. The release of iOS 6.1.1 actually made the issue worse; users report that while their iPhone already couldn't keep a connection for more than a few minutes, with the update, now their phone can no longer find any Wifi access points at all.

As if that wasn't enough, the security hole in iOS 6.1's lock screen remains untouched. Contacts, personal information and unauthorized access to enterprise servers by a malicious third party are just one stolen iPhone away even with the most advanced security software employed.

"You can have the strongest password, the enhanced security features, the remote wipe functions set up, and all kinds of policies enabled, but in this case all those features become instantly redundant. And, until Apple fixes it...some of your corporate data is vulnerable to unauthorized access."

Apple promises to fix this issue as soon as possible, and given their track record, means that it's probably time to shop around in the android market.

The question then becomes QuotesChimp: Who must bear the burden of loss; that is, who has to pay? Without insurance, if your house burns down, you must pay to rebuild. If you lose a lawsuit, you must pay the verdict (not to mention the lawyers). If your ap�pendix must come out, so must your wallet.
