More Problems For Apple's iPhone 5

One of the first things that annoyed iPhone 5, and iOS 6, users was the replacement of Google Maps with Apple's own Maps app.  While their take on Maps lacks being accurate (like this), their latest problems affect users in other areas.

The biggest problem is for Verizon customers.  It appears that users are noticing that their data plans are being eaten up, even when they are connected to wi-fi.  (Say whhaaaat?)  Yup.  The Apple forums are filled with customers having this problem with their iPhone 5.

To fix this, Apple and Verizon have launched an update for users that should take care of this problem.  Head in to your Settings and click on 'General' to receive the update.  While it's updating, hop on the Verizon web site to check your data usage.  If it's used a lot more data than usual, make sure to contact Verizon to see if they'll reset your usage.

While this problem has only been brought up by Verizon customers, anyone with an iPhone 5 should check to see if this problem is occurring.  Take the jump over to the Apple forums to see how different people measured their usage.       

Wi-Fi isn't the only problem happening for the iPhone 5.  Some users have also been complaining about a constant purple flare in the pictures they take.  According to Gizmodo, the purple flare could be coming from the sapphire glass that covers the lens.

Not to worry though, Apple's team has come up with a solution.  "Angle the camera away from the bright light source."

I guess that was easier than telling them to only take pictures in the dark.

The issues with the iPhone 5 will do nothing to hurt sales.  Let's face it, the phone could be giving people an electric shock every time the person using the phone says, "Amazing," and Apple fans would say it's just the small price to pay for good quality.  For those that were smart enough to wait, these kinks should be worked out by the time the iPhone 6S rolls out in 2017.

What say you?
