  1. Over on Apple Discussions, iPod touch owners are reporting graphical glitches after updating their devices to iOS 4.3, which was released earlier this month. After updating, screens on affected devices seem to flicker and distort, particularly on the lock screen and with the arrival of a push notification.

    The Captivate can be upgraded to Froyo. AT&T released the update a few weeks ago. It has to be manually, not over the air. :)

    Well at least is a software fail and not a hardware one like the antenna and the defective screens.
  6. I have definitly noticed it on my 4g ipod touch. So far it has just been anoying - no other crashing or symptoms yet. It does look pretty crappy though, and you get the impression that your screen is failing (although it is probably just the graphics being display that are off).

    Shiny and fancy Apple OS has a glitch? THE WORLD WILL END.
  8. My iPod touch 4g has been doing the same thing but good to know that it a glitch and not my iPod breaking
  9. I've had some of these graphical issues. They aren't a serious problem for me, just a very minor visual annoyance. I don't mind waiting for a patch.
  10. It is the most annoying thing ever. I hope Apple fixes this soon!

    Every time I open my lock screen the spaces where the numbers go are distorted until I start typing. I thought it was only me at first but the problem seems to be wide spread. It is not a serious issue, but it is annoying nonetheless.
