10. iPhone 4S Battery Problem

Date: Oct. 14, 2011

Apple disappointed many this October when it did not release the iPhone 5. Hope remained high for the iPhone 4S after reviews came in lauding the new faster handset and its new voice-recognition assistant, Siri. Sales soared through the roof, granting Apple its best first week sales for any product. However, there was one major issue: the battery life. Reports began pouring in of phones dying within a matter of two to three hours, rendering users helpless. Apple attributed the problem to a kink in its new iOS 5 software, and released an update, which did absolutely nothing, then released a second update a week later to remedy the issue.
