Buggy enough for Mark Gurman to report for Bloomberg three weeks later that Apple is pivoting from whizzy new features to old-fashioned reliability.
After reading Gurman’s story, I spent a couple hours on a hunt for bug reports.
On Monday, in It’s not just you: Apple’s software is buggier than it used to be, Mashable’s Karissa Bell counted eight iOS bugs, including the famous autocorrect feature that changed the letter “i” to to “A[?]”.
I had a feeling Bell had barely scratched the surface. So I scratched a little harder. Needless to say, she missed a few.
Stephen Wilson has been been tracking iOS 11.2/11.1/11upgrade problems and solutions for iMobie, and as of this morning was up to 37—from 1. Software Update Failed to 37. App Needs To Be Updated.
Over at TechRadar, Mark Knapp has documented 31 issues—and possible workarounds—from 1. Older iPhones running slow to 31. Your phone won’t start at all after update. My favorite: 27. Someone is taking pictures of you during FaceTime calls.
Forbes‘ Gordon “Nasty Surprise” Kelly, never missing an opportunity to gloat, feasted on Apple iOS 11.2.5, offering readers 65 live links to individual complaints.
My take: That’s a lot of copying and pasting, Gordon! Karissa Bell, please take note.
