Apple is Investigating iPhone 3G Problems With iOS 4

Apple is investigating reports that iOS 4 causes issues when running on the iPhone 3G, an Apple spokesperson told the WSJ.

The most common criticism is that the phone is slow after an upgrade. There are also many complaints that the phone drains the battery quickly and becomes excessively hot. Concern about general problems such as slowness and battery life on gadgets isn’t unusual, but using iOS 4 on the iPhone 3G seems to make the problems so bad that the phone is nearly unusable for some people.

We've posted on these issues before. As you can see in the video below they can be quite troublesome for users affected. Hopefully, a fix will be found soon.

I'm still having all of these same issues and haven't found anywhere where Apple has fixed it. Any insight as to if this has been fixed or how to fix it?

Yep!... indeed that is my 3G as well - I am afraid...!!! - I have found that the battery also makes your phone into a heater... on 4.0 ...sometimes.... What I do - is to stop the web-browser... I delete all the weblinks - back to blank... (in other words stop safari trying to scan..) seeing that the operating system is multi-tasking - it does this by itself - even when not in 3.0 ... I also - turn off the 3G option...hmmm... some programs like internet intensive connections - do this as well... like Gtalk - web-browsing etc etc... Thanks.... Spencer ~Sabatta
