Apple to Fix Exchange Bug; Updates iMovie
Apple indicated via its support pages that a fix is planned for a bug affecting Exchange ActiveSync performance on iOS devices. The bug manifests in the calendar and can cause iOS devices to communicate with Exchange servers excessively, draining the battery and gumming up Microsoft's servers. "Apple has identified a fix and will make it available in an upcoming software update," said the company. There are workarounds to the bug detailed on Apple's support pages, though the simplest fix is for iOS device users to refrain from responding to recurring events in the calendar app. The bug was introduced when Apple released iOS 6.1 earlier this year. Separately, Apple released an update to its iMovie application for iOS devices. The updated video-composing software resolves a number of bugs and improves stability.
