iOS 6 Bug Triggers Multiple Downloads for Podcasts and Audio Streams Leading to Overage Charges

A bug was recently discovered in the iOS 6 AV Foundation framework that is said to be causing problems with downloads of podcasts and audio streams. The problem is that the bug leads to multiple downloads of podcasts that can lead to data overages for users on limited data plans. The bug apparently raises its head not only in Apple's own Podcasts app, but other apps as well.

The streams are reportedly downloaded multiple times because connection errors cause them to launch new download sessions as the stream is being played. That means while you're listening to what appears to be an uninterrupted stream, the bug can be causing the same stream to be downloaded over and over in the background.

The issue has reportedly been corrected in iOS 6.0.1 that was released last week and this issue wasn't a problem with older versions of iOS. Some users are reporting, according to The Next Web, that even in iOS 6.0.1 this bug still exists.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
