Latest iPhone 4S Bug Forces Users to Yell ‘Can You Hear Me Now?’

A new bug was discovered on the iPhone 4S–following previous bugs related to battery issues, audio echoing, and speed issues–that prevented its owners from hearing anything on the earpiece speaker when placing calls. Though it appears that the other party can hear perfectly well, iPhone 4S callers cannot hear the people they are trying to call.

Apple has so far not responded to the issue, and the issue appears widespread as it has 32 pages of user accounts and complaints on Apple’s official forum.

There are a number of user-discovered workarounds to the bug, including turning on and off speakerphone, plugging and unplugging headphones, and activating Siri.

One possible explanation for the glitch is that there may be a driver issue. The issue affects all models of iPhone 4S on all different carriers.

Whatever the reason is, for a second-generation product with the same body style as last year’s iPhone 4, users are expecting a more polished phone, not one with more bugs and issues than last year’s Antennagate issue.

    ha! maybe they should’ve concentrated more effort on working out the kinks instead of suing everybody on the planet. Double facepalm.

    I haven’t seem ANY of these bugs in my 4S. I’m a very recent droid convert and I still like the android world, so I’m hardly a “fanboy”. Except for maybe battery life (which even then is a little better than the Bionic I just sold), my 4S is working perfectly. I did turn off Siri right off the bat, having no interest in such a feature.

    I went through this with Droid Xs, having 3 that had nearly no problems while other people screamed about them being full of bugs. However, my Bionic turned out to be full of problems.

    I do hope that Apple gets off their duff and remedies these problems.

      You can not be coming from android:) It is not possible you to go from 4.3+ inches back to obsolete 3.5″ era. This devices are not only telephones anymore, so screen is not only for dialing, isn’t it?
       It smells “deja vu” iTrolling:)
