When will apple release a new update?

My 4S seems to have issues every month
With the usage and standby instead of digits
Telling me how long it's been on I keep getting
2 lines showing

Only way to solve this is to reset the handset
In iTunes last month I had this occur and after I restored my phone I had poor battery life I had to
Remove iTunes of my Windows 7 pc and reinstall it again and sort the phone out !

I spoke to apple Europe on the phone they said its hardware Problems and advised me to go to a store
With it I really didn't want to do this cos my nearest store takes 2hrs of my life to get to

So I just restored and it seemed to work fine
The battery went back to normal phew

But now the issue has comeback lol
Not amused lol

Rant over apple please sort a update soon I beg u
Saves me wasting 2 hrs of my life going to see a genius person who prob send me packing anyway Smiley Sad

Ok, it shows your carrier as Orange UK... and this is AT&T USA... neither are Apple also... anyways to answer your question... No one here can answer your questionSmiley Wink

 

Apple didn't make any announcements about any upcoming updates as far as I know, maybe they will say something about during their iPad event later this week.

Re: When will apple release a new update?

Yup I'm aware of that I just thought I'd post it up
Cos another forum I'm registered on seems a lot biased against apple!

And here people seem more knowledged on some apple content lol

I know I'm not with AT&T myself and I'm in the United Kingdom but I thought I'd post up besides

If anyone knows anything on any updates please let me know as I've explained my annoyance above Smiley Wink

Re: When will apple release a new update?

I've never heard of this problem nor have any problem with battery life, so it doesn't appear to be a widespread problem. Even if Apple does release an update m, who's to say it will fix your issue. Besides, according to your post, you've been told its a hardware problem, but you choose not to go to the Apple store to get it fixed. If it is a hardware problem, an Apple OS update won't fix it. Go get it fixed.

Re: When will apple release a new update?

I think a few ppl may have the same problem
I did post it on apple discussions and got a few responses!

The phone seems to be ok after I restore the firmware
But it seems to go pots up again a few weeks later

Every time I've said to myself go to apple in Birmingham
I cannot get an appointment with the Genuis bar
And even if I did go apple are not going to replace my phone
They will end up sending it for repair leaving me without a phone
I do not have another phone that accepts micro sim cards lol

Btw I really think a software update will fix it but
Then as you say it might not but it's strange how restoring
It fixes it for a few weeks Smiley Happy

Re: When will apple release a new update?

Are you restoring as new every time, or from a backup? If from a backup, your backup could be corrupt.

How many responses is a "few"? If it's not a widespread problem, then Apple may not know anything about it and aren't working on a fix. The next software update (only Apple knows when that will be) may not fix your problem, or the problems of others. The boards are full of people still having the same problem after multiple updates. Seems like you have a choice. Take it to Apple and see if they can fix it, or hope that the next update (whenever that is) fixes it, and then if it doesn't, will you wait for the next update, or the next after that?

Re: When will apple release a new update?

I restore it as a new iPhone now always
That line thing is really annoying though
My old iPhone 4 did it a couple of times but the
Usage was above 30+ it being a locked phone on AT&T
Ment it was only good as a iPod

Btw whatever the issue is I honestly think
A prior update will sort it !

I guess I will take a trip To apple once weather picks up I dont like travelling
Into the city tho cos it takes to long and public buses suck Smiley Happy

And then there's the fear of apple just sending me home
The phone works blah blah Smiley Wink

Btw will see how long it lasts now I set it up through 3G this time
And connected it to iTunes afterwards without no net synced stuff back onto it
Etc seems good for time being Smiley Happy

5.1 was released today.

Re: When will apple release a new update?

I just downloaded 5.1 and now my 4S shows "4G" next to AT&T instead of "3G". I know the 4S is HSPA+ and not LTE so I'm confused?

AT&T calls HSPA+ "4G" - so if your iPhone4s is connected to HSPA+, you're in AT&T 4G land.

Only HSPA+ the phone is not 4G LTE, if your carrier does HSPA+ it will show, in the US it is ATT
