    Apple Reveals iOS 8.3, Ignores Ongoing Problems - Forbes

    Thoughts? Are people still having issues with the "problems" mentioned in this article?

    As has been the case from the start, "some" users will always have issues, and I'd argue that a good deal of the issues some people are having are user-caused. Having said that, how is Apple "ignoring ongoing problems" just because it has opened iOS 8.3 to developers? Won't it be available to us all in the very near future? What about the millions who are NOT having the issues stated in the article? I assume they far outnumber those who are.

    Well I'd call my problems with my bluetooth headset from LG an ongoing problem. It worked fine with my Windows phone but as soon as I connect it to my iPhone I lose all volume control. That was with IOS 8.1.2. I had hoped that 8.1.3 would solve it but still nothing.

    I'm sure it is, but who's to blame - Apple or LG? I've never owned a Bluetooth headset from LG, but my Motorola Buds and my Jawbone Icon work flawlessly with iOS, even before iOS 8.

    I don't use a Bluetooth, my car has hands free. So no issue there.
    No other issues. From my perspective, Apple isn't ignoring anything since I've got none of the issues there.

    3rd party keyboards still won't play nice with the messages app. I have other issues as well. When I tap a link in an email, and it goes to Safari, it often times will not open. I'm stuck on the favorites screen until I tap the search bar then go. Siri often comes up after I push the home button once. Then she won't go away when I push the home button again. It then goes to invert colors. When I finally get off that, I'm stuck where I am. I turned Siri off. Now I get "Voice Controls". LOL

    This happens to me about once a week. Not too much, but enough to be annoying.

    Other than that, no other problems.

    About the only "issue" I still have is with 3rd party keyboards. It wasn't worth it so I ended up deleting them. I really do like swiftkey but it drives me crazy when it's there sometimes and not others. Not a huge deal. I like the apple keyboard just fine. It does the job. This article is pure click bait and since I clicked, I guess it worked.

    Most of the time that I read these so called issues I end up scratching my head. Most often than not these aren't issues for me.

    Like the whole wifi thing....no idea......

    I also thought I was the only one with problems with my LG headset until I googled it and saw that the majority of owners had the same problem.

    I also don't know how extensive problems are until they affect me as well.

    Don't you have to connect your phone to your car via bluetooth?

    Yup. What I mean is I've got no problem with the Honda Link. I used to have Jabra and Motorola BT and those were always trouble. Honda Link is flawless. So it isn't the BT IN the phone, it's the BT device.

    It's Forbes, OP. Anything they say about Apple these days should be taken with every grain of salt that Apple's money can buy.

    I agree. The bt implementation on iPhone is pretty flawless. Usually it's the devices connecting to the iPhone that present problems.

    I'm still having a problem with my iPhone 6 Plus freezing since the 8.1.3 update. Before the update, it was fine. Now it freezes a lot. I have to hit the power button to turn the screen off then on to get the screen to become responsive again. It has become very annoying. So I'm awaiting the next update so that this issue is resolved. I've never had an issue with an Apple product until now. It's not a huge issue, but it is irritating.

    Did you update OTA? Sometimes, a refresh of the iOS via iTunes cures irritating issues like that.

    I did do it OTA. After having already downloaded the OS to the phone, how do I go back to refresh it through iTunes?

    Thanks for the link. Just one question though, so this is basically doing the same as erasing the phone back to factory settings that I have done on the phone already. Why is this process different if it is supposed to achieve the same thing?
