Apple’s new iPhone 5 is riddled with an unusually large number of problems. It has been reported by a rather huge number of users that the iPhone 5 units they are receiving have their sides and back cases damaged. Another rather significant problem that is being reported is that the iPhone 5 is leaking light, between the glass display and the case. And, these are not all!

Scuffgate: iPhone 5 suffers abrasions
Apparently, the material that has gone into the making of iPhone 5’s body isn’t that great. The device appears to have suffered abrasions and in some cases, the coating has entirely been removed in some places. All this has happened while the devices travelled from the manufacturer to the users’ doorsteps. What’s different about iPhone 5’s body is that while iPhone 4 and 4S were made from stainless steel, the latest iPhone comes with an aluminum body. Aluminum is a lot softer than steel and anodization is done to make it more resilient. Anodization deposits a layer of aluminum oxide but the layer is not hard enough to withstand deep scratches. And that’s probably why many iPhone 5 users, all around the globe, are complaining about witnessing abrasions on their devices.

Light leaks from iPhone 5
This is the second major problem in iPhone 5 that has come to light. And this, again, is being reported by a huge number of iPhone 5 users. The problem is that users can see light leaking at the point where glass display and aluminum antenna meet. This essentially means that there’s a crevice which is leaking the light from the display.

Siri gives false weather reports
With the iOS 6 update, Siri has been equipped with a number of new functions. But at the same time, the voice-based assistant seems to have mixed up quite a few things. For instance, when residents of New York City ask Siri about the weather in ‘my area’, Siri tells them the weather of New York, Texas. Such mix-ups have been reported by iPhone users in a number of other cities.

Painfully slow Wi-Fi on iPhone 5
Apple’s support forum is a fair place to gauge the overall response of iOS users to new releases by Apple. In one forum, users are lambasting Apple for a painfully slow Wi-Fi experience on iPhone 5. While some have speculated that the problem may be specific to iOS 6, others have specifically mentioned that their Wi-Fi runs fine on iOS 6-equipped iPhone 4s, yet is very slow on iPhone 5. According to a user, “Very, very slow and frequent drops, almost unusable. Had no issues with the iPhone 4. I am using WPA2 and have no interest in switching to WEP. Did apple even test this thing?”

All these issues are pretty embarrassing for a company which has long been hailed for its extreme quality measures. And, the trend indicates that such quality control issues may be commonplace for Apple in future.
