Apple admits to calendar bug on iOS 7.1.2; next iOS update will correct it

0. phoneArena 06 Jul 2014, 03:28 posted on

One of our loyal PhoneArena readers who lives in the Lithuania region, has noticed something odd about the calendar on iOS 7.1.2. After setting the proper region, the calendar application listed the wrong regional holidays. Instead of seeing the holidays in his region for 2014, the holidays for Mexico, Hong Kong, and Canada appeared...

I'm not trolling and I'm not fandroid. I have also iPhone, facing same issue and it is annoying. Furthermore, no love from Apple for small countries... Check how much they support languages or countries for iCloud two step verification.

Did you also email Apple like this guy in the article? I hope you did that before posting this - too many people like to post and vent rather that do something constructive to resolve the issue. I hope you find time to direct some posts to the right place, if you haven't done so already.

Not trolling, making a valid point even if it is a little sarcastic. You always see Apple fans quoting "it works straight out of the box" but must expect comments when it does not and that is pretty regularly in recent times.Just look at The life of IOS 7.

This update wasn't straight out the box, but I see your point. Apple isn't nearly perfect, and iOS mos def has its quirks. Generally small, but none the less annoying.

It's obvious that pathetic trolls get upset when others build their platform up... We have idiots like them in the real world... We call them hatters... They aren't confident, or satisfied, by what they have, so that worry about what others have, like, and do.... Pathetic!

SHUT THE F * * K UP please. LOL Apple doesn't have to write code for 1,000 different hardware configurations, so when there is issues they aren minimal and usually tied to older hardware rather than only working on flagship devices and destroying the rest.

It is Plato's allegory, but Socrates is featured as a character.

The Allegory of the Cave is presented by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work The Republic to compare "...the effect of education and the lack of it on our nature". It is written as a dialogue between Plato's brother Glaucon and his mentor Socrates, narrated by the latter.

Plato has Socrates describe a gathering of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to designate names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.

It does "just work", it's doesn't "just work" perfectly. Issues pop up with electronics, RAM, CPU, wiring, all slip up from time to time bro. My iPhone trips out, and so does my note, but I love em both.

You act like Android Kitkat wasn't updated endlessly. 4.4.4 was KitKat's 4th update. 7.1.3 will be iOS 7's 4th update. They've been updated for the same amount of times! Anyone who acts like this means that Android's updates are somehow more or less important is just a troll and a fanboy.

iOS 7: 9 updates (6 of them were solely bug fixes) excluding this one
KitKat: 4 updates (1 bug fix update just for the Nexus 5)

I don't mind how iOS runs things, but it's a funny that iOS 7 wasn't a game changer during its lifetime before iOS 8 was announced. iOS 7 seems like a forgettable chapter in Apple's history now.

Anything as complex as an operating system is going to have bugs - always. It's hundreds of thousands of lines of code written by different teams and sewn together. The important thing is that the discovered bugs are squashed in a quick manner. Apple does the pretty well.

Lack of upgradability - on a Windows/Linux machine you can say "I don't have enough hard drive/RAM" and upgrade it easily, while on a Mac they say "you should have bought that spec"

Same goes to iPhones, with no SD card. Wth.

Apple loves to milk out their users, and they are laughing their butts out. What a bunch of dimwit customers we have.

Lmfao.

Yeah and what ? It's the choice of consumer to buy an Apple product and have fixed RAM and storage. And if the positives outweigh the negatives for the user, the product will be bought. Pretty simple huh ?

Flash storage, the type used by the iPhone and iPad is more expensive than regular hard-drive storage, but not that expensive. The difference between the 32- and 16-gigabyte storage on the iPhone is $10.40. For that, Apple charges you an extra $100. An extra $100 doubles your storage again, but it only costs Apple an extra $20.80 for the m

He's partially right. Some hardware, like video card, is limited to upgrades for cards that have OSX drivers. That's not too many. You can't upgrade the MB, either. Macs aren't non - upgradeable, but the do have more limits to upgrading than PCs.

OK nobody is trying to be a troll here. "But it simply works."

This is undoubtedly the number 1 counter that you hear when the iPhone is criticized for it's (definitely) limited functionality, (definitely) diminutive size & (unjustified) outdated hardware.

My colleague at work says, "your so called powerful Android phone is full of bugs & bloat are & you need to root it just to get it to function as intended." Guess he hasn't visited such sites.

Sure Android phones are also buggy & lag on occasion, but you never hear claims that they don't have any bugs & work every time as intended by the manufacturer.

The "outdated hardware" is optimized for the software so it works like high-end hardware. The reason that Android need quad-core this and 2gz that is because companies don't know how to optimize. iPhones do simply work.

The reason Android needs more horsepower is its a much more complex, powerful OS that does many more things than iOS and is designed to truly be a mobile PC.

That's a pretty standard response when you have no argument.

Push my buttons? By making an uneducated and erroneous comment? No so much.

The correct comment would have been that your iPhone does everything you want it to. That's fine. But don't pretend for a second that it does everything Android does.
