Problem with some iPhone units could get you fired for showing up to work late - PhoneArena
What is going on at Apple ? In the good old days, we could find one major issue with the latest iPhone model, give it a catchy hashtag 'gate' name like #antennagate, #batterygate, and #bendgate, and that would be it. This year alone, we could have a choice between #wifigate, #toohottotouchgate, #datatransfergate, and #randomnighttimeshutdowngate. The last one appears to be new as according to MacRumors , some iPhone users are complaining about their handsets randomly shutting off at night.
Sure, you won't get any calls since your phone is off, but you also will sleep late since the alarm on your phone was turned off by mistake when the device shut down randomly. As a result, you'll miss your usual wake up time, show up late for work, and get fired.
The lack of gaps in the battery level graph indicates that this iPhone did not shut down overnight
To make matters worse, sometimes the phone shuts off randomly and then reboots automatically. Why is this worse? If the phone turns back on, a cursory look at the device might make you believe that since the screen is on, it might have never turned off at all. If that is the case, you would have no reason to think that the alarm had been turned off. So in that scenario, you go back to bed, the alarm doesn't go off, you get to work late, and you're canned.
Hopefully, Apple will be disseminating a fix for this issue soon. After all, it would be bad for the economy if too many people are oversleeping, arriving late for work, and getting a pink slip. And by the way, this issue has affected various iPhones including the four new models belonging to the iPhone 15 series.
