A Brief Update on the iCloud Bug

The other day, I posted a video demonstrating slow, but steady data usage as long as iCloud is enabled in iOS 6.

I've since received several indepedent confirmations by readers, along with many lovely thank you's from people affected by this problem. Unfortunately, despite yelling from the rooftops, the story hasn't gotten much mainstream attention.

However, I did receive a call from a Verizon representative. I was told that it's been passed along to the appropriate department, but that it isn't really Verizon's problem. I responded that while it may be Apple's bug, something that could clog up their network indeed is Verizon's problem.

Also, I asked about forgiveness for customers who exceeded their caps due to the Wi-Fi bug. I was told that they would be credited automatically, and shouldn't have to contact customer service. Hopefully that will be the case.

I'm giving it rest for now. I've contacted the highest ranks at Apple, along with evey tech journalist who will listen. At this point, there's not much else I can do. Hopefully, the bug will be fixed sooner than later.
