    Default Music distortion at random

    Has anyone else had their music suddenly distort during play, I can only really compare to playing say an mp3 on a pc an then the CPU and memory gets full or something like that and it kind of distorts that way, nothing actively running at the time as phone is in my pocket. Done it about 3 times now since I got phone about 3 weeks ago assuming its just something software based no other problems though.

    Not sure if its the same, but when I've been playing tunes in my car via Bluetooth to the car stereo, I get little sound distortions now and then. Almost like a faint scratching sound, like on an old record player. I assumed it was a software glitch, like when iTunes sounded (still does sometimes) when playing music on a PC.

    Kind sounds like that and have experienced similar in the past but put it down to interference as Bluetooth is wireless/radio tech

    I'm tempted to wait for 6.01 to drop before going to apple I it continues. Never had it on my iPhone 4

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe 6.01 will address the issue. Or ignore it.

    It's not that often but in my case it seems like a high CPU kind of issue ad considering how much more powerful re a6 is compared to the a4 - will keep an eye on it then talk to apple if it continues
