Apple Dealing with New Data Glitch
Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:24 PM EDT
Apple is contending with another glitch in its newest phone that could be running up your cell phone bill.
Apple has now confirmed that there is a bug in the iPhone 5 that is causing the phones to consume major amounts of cell data. The consumption is even happening when the phones are plugged into a Wi-Fi network, resulting in big overages as customers blow though their monthly data caps.
Apple has not commented on how widespread the problem might be, but it pushed out a software update over the weekend that is supposed to fix the problem.
So far the bug has been a problem for Verizon users and possibly AT&T.
Apple is already dealing with complaints over the new mapping system, which appears to be full of geographical errors. The company apologized for that the issue last week.
