iPhone4s Battery Complaints ‘Charging’ In
Apple doesn’t get a break when it comes to their iPhone complaints, and the iPhone4s is no exception. According to the Apple forums the complaints are coming in faster than an A4 dual-core processor about the phones battery performance.
For now, Apple isn’t saying anything about the issue – a spokeswoman didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment – in what has become a typical pattern of silence for the company after customers begin complaining about a technical problem with a new iPhone. Often Apple waits to speak out on issues like this after several days of investigating the matter.
In the meantime, iPhone customers are left troubleshooting the problem themselves, coming up with workarounds that may or may not alleviate the problem. The Guardian reported that some iPhone customers had seen improved battery life by shutting off a feature called “Setting Time Zone” buried within the location services menu of iPhone settings.
That feature automatically adjusts the time zone settings of an iPhone when a user travels. Turning it off means the clock on users’ phones won’t adjust unless they manually change it. Some people on Apple’s discussion forums still report poor battery life even after making the change.
