2. Apple Maps

With all of the hoopla surrounding Apple's home-brewed Maps application, fans of Google Maps were disappointed when the software was finally released. Mapgate revealed screenshots of missing roads, places with the wrong name, and low resolution satellite imagery. Apple has made it clear that Maps is a work in progress, and the more people that use the software the better it will become. Transit directions and street view may be missing, but Flyover mode in 3D and turn-by-turn navigation don't come with Google Maps. iPhone 5 owners who miss the old version can save the Google Maps web app to their home screen to restore full access to Google's product.
3. Wi-Fi Data

Apple iPhone 5 owners have experienced several Wi-Fi problems with the new smartphone. Shortly after launch there were reports of Wi-Fi not working correctly with WPA2 encrypted Wi-Fi routers. Often people complained of “painfully slow Wi-Fi” connections. Apple stores usually have open Wi-Fi so the problem isn’t evident in store, also using the older, less secure WEP encryption can help.
A new more alarming Wi-Fi bug has been reported; alarming because it could have financial consequences. CNN reports that “scores of iPhone 5 users” have experienced their phones “sucking down cellular data even when they were connected to a Wi-Fi network, resulting in big overages as they blew through their monthly data caps”. Apple pushed out a software update on Sunday to resolve the issue for Verizon network users. However it is unclear if other networks are affected. Meanwhile Verizon promised not to charge customers for the “unwarranted cellular data usage”. Other reports suggest this bug is in iOS 6 rather than the iPhone 5 hardware.
4. Light Leak

After the white iPhone 4 saga from a couple of years ago, Apple seems to have the two colors they produce down pat. Still, there have been some reports of white iPhone 5 units with a light leak around the edge of the unit. The problem happens when using the iPhone in the dark. The illuminated display lighting can be seen peeking out through a gap between the front glass and the aluminum sides of the device. iPhone 5 users complaining of the problem have posted on forums, stating that Apple replaced their devices under warranty.
