SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) --
Apple has halted an update to its iPhone operating system while it investigates a couple of pretty serious glitches.
Apparently the update prevented the new iPhone 6 models from making phone calls and also caused problems with the fingerprint security system.
Tech site Gizmodo told iPhone users not to download the update, and that triggered a cascade of complaints in Apple chat rooms. The Cupertino-based company said it would issue its own advice as quickly as possible. Apple is also dealing with complaints that the iPhone 6 Plus is vulnerable to bending.
We should probably start at the beginning. A few years ago, smartphones got bigger. The craze started in Korea, where laptops aren't that popular.
"Korean people are very dependent on handheld mobile systems," said Jong Lok Yoon, Korean Vice Minister of Science. "So that's why they need some kind of more bigger."
Yoon was at the Silicon Valley K-Tech Conference. He recalls when Samsung made a splash with its first Galaxy Note.
It was ridiculed at first. But later imitated, some say, by Apple.
Millions lined up for the bigger iPhone 6 Plus. But now they've noticed a problem -- it's bendable
