And the (OS 2.1 bug) train keeps a'rolling. Now iPhone users who've upgraded to the latest operating system are discovering that, when their unit's on battery power and in sleep mode, Fetch won't retrieve email in the background. It's theorized that one of the power-saving tweaks introduced in 2.1 is the culprit;
Apple says that the 15-minute fetch interval is the worst wear on
the battery because it never lets the phone go into deep sleep mode.
Apple also admits it's a "known problem" that they're looking into, but won't give a time frame as to when this particular bug'll be nailed to the wall.
Forgot to say – everything is fine in ismashphone land.
