Steve reassures on iPhone issue(s)



By

AppleInsider is repeating a one-line email from Steve Jobs to an iPhone user about a known issue with 2.x of the device's firmware.

"This is a known iPhone bug that is being fixed in the next software update in September," El Jobs is quoted as writing.

According to AppleInsider, the nut of the issue is this—iPhone 2.0 firmware won't allow user-installed apps to launch. Specifically, the bug occurs both with newly downloaded apps and updates.

To date, AppleInsider says that no combination of re-installing, restoring, etc has proven effective in eliminating this problem.

Editor's note: It's somewhat odd that Steve, knowing his missive would likely be leaked to the masses, didn't attempt to offer broader reassurance as there a number of vexing issues bedeviling users (ie 3G connectivity).

Thereupon, I wonder what percentage of Steve-fathered emails actually get passed on to the media? I wonder how many get dismissed out of hand as hoaxes?

Lastly, a number of users, including a certain Mssr Laporte, are saying that downloading and installing apps directly from the iPhone can cause problems and downloading / installing only via iTunes / sync has resolved said issues.
