Apple Working on Fix for Bug That Causes Issues With Exchange and iOS 6.1

Apple says it thinks it knows what is behind an irksome bug that causes issues for some who use iOS 6.1 in conjunction with Microsoft’s Exchange server software.

In certain cases when dealing with a recurring calendar event, a problem can cause “excessive communication” with the Exchange Server, resulting in higher network use and reduced battery life.

“Apple has identified a fix and will make it available in an upcoming software update,” Apple said in a post on its support website. In the meantime, Apple suggests not responding to issues with a recurring event on an iOS device.

Vodafone had urged customers to hold off on iOS 6.1 for other reasons, noting a variety of 3G connection issues with the software when used on an iPhone 4S and its network. Apple has already issued one update to iOS 6.1 to address that issue.

Apple first released iOS 6.1 at the end of last month.
