Last week, the IOS 7.1 release was pushed to users with iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch. While it contained some useful features and functionality, it also came with a cost. Many users have started experienced less battery life since they have updated to IOS 7.1. BGR.com has recently published some methods to address the battery life issue with IOS 7.1.
Battery life is not the only issue and ZDNet has compiled a list of problems with IOS 7.1 for users to review. This list includes wifi and bluetooth connectivity issues, Apple Touch ID fingerprint scanner issues, and personal hotspot problems.
Is Apple missing something in the QA department that is causing updates to go out with problems? Or is Apple just deciding that battery life is not as important as the features they are rolling out? With the mass usage of iPhones and other Apple products, it doesn't speak very well for the software engineers and testers when such important things get overlooked in a release.
