Amusing Apple iPhone 5 Rapid Swipe Bug - Hardware at Fault?



Several iPhone 5 and and iPod touch 5th generation users have begun reporting that rapid diagonal swipes on their devices can cause the screen to stop responding to touch input. This rapid swiping will not affect everyday usage, but it could affect rapid swiping games like Fruit Ninja and game developers are expressing concern over this https://twitter.com/cma_megacorp/sta...70789599531008

The Next Web has posted that because the glitch is not present on the iPhone 4S, but is also seen on the 5th generation iPod Touch, which uses the same new touch hardware as the iPhone 5, the issue is likely not with iOS 6 and not solved with a simple software update. iPhone 5 Ignoring Rapid Diagonal Swipes

The issue is easily replicated. Check out the video demonstration above from Recombu, and don't be surprised if the skills of Fruit Ninjas who play on Android/Windows Phones begin to far exceed those who chop Apples on iOS.

Chopping too fast?

Re: Apple iPhone 5 Rapid Swipe Bug - Hardware at Fault?

Hi,

Well the worst fears of all the Apple fans !!! This was sort of expected on account of the device itself was developed in a rather hurry and ended up getting two of the guys involved fired and countless production problems !!

Tim can step into Jobs shoes but cannot manage it half as good the beloved departed soul did !! There was only one Steve Jobs and he shall be the only one who knew how to make some kick ass products !!

Wouldn't be surprised if Tim as well is booted out soon !!

Regards.

Re: Apple iPhone 5 Rapid Swipe Bug - Hardware at Fault?

I seriously don't get the logic...if some guy in a Gram Panchayat in a village passes "Farman" like an illiterate against women and if that village comes under Congress, why is Dr. Manmohan Singh asked for resignation.
Well for hardware design issues, why do you directly blame Tim Cook.

And I am not sure it's just one website trying to start a rumor or it is really true. Not defending Apple, but seriously as I see now it's just one website and it's youtube link...not sure whether the same group has started the Twitter acc.
Also another website 'thenextweb' has quoted the first one that is 'recombu'.

It can be a normal camera trick as he is swiping too fast...need inputs from people who own 5 or some other tech website to confirm it.

Re: Apple iPhone 5 Rapid Swipe Bug - Hardware at Fault?

This is mostly a hardware fault, this has been replicated by many people and thus the company needs to address the problem fast..
before the word spreads, but mostly this would not be a problem for the users, as they are very faithful to the company and would take this in their stride and keep smiling...

Re: Apple iPhone 5 Rapid Swipe Bug - Hardware at Fault?

Iphone 5 used a different in cell touch screen as compared to the previous generations. So it could all be due to calibration reason . Nothing is going right for Apple at this time and yes for such issues Tim Cook would be the one to be blamed ,reason being as he is at the top most level of the food chain and driving the whole company . PS:I have had all the iphones except for the iphone 5.

Re: Apple iPhone 5 Rapid Swipe Bug - Hardware at Fault?

Yes, I can replicate it... Yes, you need to swipe madly across the screen to get this, No... not a hardware bug.

The screen is still tracking your finger, but not registering it with software? Reason I say this is because you can use another finger and the screen reacts to it just fine but not the finger which was swiping away madly.

how come you call yourself an apple fan? you are not suppose to say such things in public in front of the Android fans... It makes our perfect less functional but perfect devices look bad at even doing that?
