iOS 5.0.2 Not Coming This Week?


Macerkopf.de follows up their original iOS 5.0.2 report and now says the 5.0.2 update won't be coming this week, as originally reported.

According to the German site, ongoing issues with memory leaks are going to require further testing. The site had originally claimed 5.0.2 would be coming this week to address battery bugs that persist in iOS 5.

I would have assumed this given that there have been no developer seeds. No?

Wasn't Apple going to take this whole week off anyway?

I'd rather see them spend more time and get this right then put a rush on it.

I doubt that they would have seeded 5.0.2 to developers due to it being such a minor update.

I would just think that since the point of the update was further battery fixing, they'd want a wide test bed.

I think Sprint's terrible 3G speeds are part of the problem. I hope 5.0.2 addresses that issue.


How can Apple fix Sprints terrible 3G speeds, its Sprint fault not Apple's.

IOS 5.0.2 Not Coming This Week?



In other news, the world won't end, Greece won't balance its budget, the Super Committee won't agree on anything, Kenny won't survive, and the Rolling Stones won't retire-- all not happening this week!

This is so awesome!

People here on the forum have been protecting Apple and their delay of the IOS:5 and the Iphone 5(4S). Saying "It's because Apple don't release half done products like Android and Windows."
And now we have the facts IOS:5 buggy as hell, making the Iphone 4S have the worst battery time yet, and loads of memory leaks.

Just hope all fans of Apple recall this when they bash other companies and their products.

/FFX (Sorry just had to point this out :P)

It's a small vocal minority, because if your **** doesn't work, you are going to be vocal. If it does, you're off living your life.

Among the people I know in real life using iPhones, 14+ devices including ipads, none of them have issues with stability, battery life, etc.

hi, im new here and i was just wondering why doesnt' Apple license it's ios system to every smartphone manufacturer in the world? wouldn't they make trillons in royalties and licensing alone? this wouldn't hurt Apple's own products at all. i mean, an iphone will still be an iphone, and even now there are some who are loyal to apple products and the rest who aren't. but i think a universal ios system can really work wonders. - just wondering.


for the same reason you can't buy an asus eee running osx- it would suck. apple's whole design philosophy is based around quality hardware and software that are built for each other.

look at the wide range of experience you will find across PCs running windows or linux or android (*nix) phones--plus driver issues and the like. users give up a whole lot of control for a more consistent experience with apple. IOS is moving things even further in that direction by denying access to system files and itunes/iphoto/ilife/icloud manage your stuff for you now if they let you touch it at all. they also seem to be trying to make finder as frustrating and difficult as possible in lion.

the push is toward deep intrasystem integration with seamless performance, and this requires control.
