Apple Investigates iOS 4 Bogging Down iPhone 3G

If you have an iPhone 3G and you've installed iOS 4, you've probably noticed that your phone is now slower than molasses in winter.

Some users who have upgraded to the new iOS 4 have forced a downgrade back to iOS 3.1.3, while others may be thinking that this is the end of the line for their two-year-old device.

One conspiracy theory is that Apple intentionally made the iPhone 3G slower so that customers would have an extra incentive to upgrade to the iPhone 4 now that they're nearing the end of their contracts.

For those who are hanging on to their iPhone 3G, however, there is hope. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple said that it is looking into the performance issues relating to iOS 4 and the iPhone 3G.

Such issues involve slowed performance, decreased battery life, and excessive heat. Are you experiencing the same problems? Sound off in the comments below!
