Apple (finally) admits what iPhone 4S owners already knew: There's a battery problem

Company attributes short battery life to bugs in latest mobile-device OS update

By  

The vast majority of iPhone 4S owners with battery problems aren't logging on to Apple's support site to leave a complaint, just as the vast majority of readers aren't going to leave a comment below a blog post or article.

In fact, Microsoft used identical language last February when it issued a statement that there was "a technical issue with the Windows Phone update process that impacts a small number of phones." Who knows what the actual number was (though given the poor sales of WP7 devices, we literally may be talking about a small number), but the percentage of WP7 bricks was 10%.

While Apple hasn't handled the iPhone battery problem as poorly as it handled the antenna issue last year -- Steve Jobs essentially characterized the furor as overblown and accused bloggers and the media of being out to get Apple because it's so fantastically successful and popular -- its belated and curt response so far falls far short of "insanely great."
