Wita for the Apple statement on the batter issue:

"You are charging it the wrong way or you are holding the charger the wrong way".

The sad part is that most iPhone use would believe that's the case..

Latest one from Mophie for example, transforms the iPhone into a dedicated GPS device.

Hmmmmm,

Bet lots of users wished they could change the battery HA! HA! A spare would tie them over until an update for 4x/day!

That's why I sold my iPhone 2ys ago for 2 cups and a piece of string!

Android peeps are mad because Apple copied them.

Batterygate has been a standard feature on Android for a long time now lol.

What cracks me up is that Android lovers obsessed with with Apple come here thinking there are multiple problems with the iPhone 4S....ha ha ha ha ha If there was multiple problems, then surely this would be major news? After all it is Apple. But reality check Android lovers - its one issue battery thats the talking point. And guess what? Apple intend to do a fix. Yes thats right, a fix. Why? Because Apple listen to their customers and care abnout the reputation.

The iPhone was and still is, the Premier device out there. It is that good and a battery issue is not gonna stop us enjoying the iPhone. So Android lovers, stop your unhealthy obsession with Apple and worry about your own device ;)

Wow. For something that's dubbed the 'premium' smartphone by journalists, this sure really sucks.

Yup this is a really big problem faced by Android users. They are the ones who are the most concerned about iOS and iPhone here on GSMArena lol.

Meanwhile millions of iPhone owners have been enjoying their phones, and even while waiting for the update, just simply needed to switch off Time Zone settings which solved the bulk of this small problem.
