Are you experiencing problems with your new iPhone 5? Over the years Apple has had issues with their handsets, for example do you remember the Antenna-gate? Or even issues with the iOS 5 regarding the battery.
Below I have listed a few common problems that people have been complaining about the most online and around the word, which can be fixed or avoided before you decide to give up.
Scratches on the body
Since the day of launch, many customers have complained about their iPhone 5’s anodised aluminium casing getting scratched and scuffed very easily. Many customers discovered that the coating was easily scratched off around the edges and found chip marks on the back panel, revealing the silver aluminium underneath.
Reports also started to emerge quite quickly as number of customers found their iPhone 5 to have scratches upon purchase.
An e-mail from a complaining customer was responded by Apple’s marking boss, Phil Schiller, as he replied: “Any aluminium product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural silver colour. That is normal.”
Supposing your handset contains no scratches on arrival then it is a good idea to invest in a bumper or go hunting for an iPhone 5 casing. If your handset does get scratched then you could always polish off the coating to form a sliver highlight around the edge.
Random purple glare on your photos?
It is said that the iPhone 5 is supposed to have the best camera available on the market currently, however many customers have reported a strange purple glare appearing on their photos. The purple glare seems to appear when there is a strong edge or out-of-scene light source. The regular lens flare effect we’re all used to appears to have a purple hue when using the iPhone 5 camera. This strange purple glare is more noticeable when you compare it to other cameras such as the iPhone 4S.
Because of this emerging issue, Apple released a support document to explain to its customers that, “Moving the camera slightly to change the position at which the bright light is entering the lens, or shielding the lens with your hand, should minimise or eliminate the effect.”
My screen keeps flickering
Another common problem faced by customers is the screen flickering on the iPhone 5. This glitch is reportedly likely to appear on the virtual keyboard in the App Store when users enter their password to purchase an app. The flickering lines appear across the bottom of the screen above the keyboard although this a small issue.
The solution for this problem is relatively easy, it is important to have your iOS updated to the latest version as these updates are released to combat software glitches to provide you a better usability experience. You can simply visit Apple’s website if you are unsure about the updates available as the updates generally explain what issues have been fixed.
My touchscreen is not responding
One of the most common problems reported by customers is the iPhone 5 touchscreen not responding when you drag your finger forwards and backwards diagonally across the screen. It is also reported by the users that the touchscreen is completely unresponsive and sometime goes blank for a few seconds.
Complaints have also started to emerge about the touchscreen responding to touches when the user hasn’t touched that part of the screen. Although this is not a widespread issue, it is something that needs to be addressed by Apple.
If you are experiencing serious issues with your iPhone 5 then it is a good idea to take it to your local Apple store and show them the issue as they could give you a replacement. You could try resetting or restoring your iPhone 5, but this would be most likely a hardware problem, so getting a replacement would be the best solution.
