Tip & How-To about Apple iPhone Smartphone
There’s no doubt that
the iPhone has revolutionized the mobile world, reinventing the touch screen
and adding cool widgets in a simple yet slick interface.
However, the iPhone 1.0 also had several annoying and persistent problems which hampered the experience and caused a lot of headaches to the average user.
I’ve looked into the FixYa database and pulled out the most common iPhone problems. Steve, I hope you’re reading it this time…
IPhone touch screen not working – Over 200 people complained that their touch screen stopped working. For some it came from nowhere; other had a better explanation (phone fell into the toilet). The iPhone definitely needs a more reliable touch screen to keep customers satisfied.
SMSing – Looks like neither sending SMS to multiple recipients nor forwarding an SMS are easy tasks. SMS is way more popular than email, especially in Europe and Asia. Apple needs to fix this feature and improve the user interface.
No YouTube for You – iPhone users love multimedia and surf the internet through their mobile phone 50 times more than the average user. That’s why it is so important to have the major websites run smoothly on the Apple gadget. Viewing videos on YouTube turned out to be an impossible mission on the 1st generation iPhone.
Toothache – Bluetooth is by no means a new technology; how come Apple couldn’t make it work?
Outlook sync issues - I’m not sure if this is the love/hate relationship between Steve and Bill, but many iPhone customers who use outlook found it extremely difficult to sync up their outlook to the iPhone. While there’s definitely a way to do it, a simpler more seamless process is in need.
These are the 5 most popular iPhone 1.0 problems on FixYa. While it seems like the SMS and Outlook problems have been resolved on the 2.0 version, we might have to wait and see if Apple will fix the other problems in the future..
