Launch of Ios7 by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) hasn’t been a smooth sailing; ever since the launch, users have been facing errors and bugs in their s iOS 7. These problems did not win any brownie points with the users who started complaining about dropping Wi-Fi, draining batteries and not so good Bluetooth connections. Users are also complaining about flawed apps and interface malfunction along with gaming and iMessage issues.
IBB Consulting’s senior partner, Jefferson Wang said that careful attention has to be paid to device testing in order to retain customer trust.
iPhone 5s is also plagued with the problem of blue screen, which was previously faced by the users of Windows computer. Nielsen Norman Group’s senior consultant, Raluca Budiu said is a report released on the 12th of October that iOS’ design isn’t that user friendly and is perhaps the most difficult iOS ever launched by Apple.
Budiu believes that the battery drainage issue arises when the users use multiple apps simultaneously. Apple Inc. has already attended to a few of these errors and is working hard to tackle the rest. The company has successfully handled the ineffective screen lock with password problem.
CEO of Frog Design Mark Rolston has expressed appreciation for iOS 7 functionality; however, he believes that color designs and visuals of the phone are not that impressive. Rolston’s company used to design Macintosh computers.
Software is not the only problem; users are also facing a few hardware problems as well. Problems related to iPhone 5s’ motion sensor, gaming issues due to accelerometer and other few problems with device tilting are quite common. Gyroscope and inclinometer are also cause problems of their own.
In a smartphone market that has extremely tough competition and where Apple has already lost its position to Samsung, the company will have to pay attention to such problems and details to retain its customers.
In the premarket, shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) jumped up by 0.54% ($507.27).
