Alleged iPhone Glitch: Auto-Attach Private Pictures

We are all aware of the glitches that affect the iPhone, such as dropping a call right when the conversation is getting interesting, the fact that there is no means of using copy/paste, and the fact that it will automatically attach pictures of your penis to outgoing emails. What was that again? Pictures of what exactly? Yes, it is true – according to Apple Discussions, an iPhone user that had such a picture on his device did not realize that said picture was attached to an email message that he send out.

The whole thing was discovered by the man’s wife. “I took my husband's i-phone and found a raunchy picture of him attached to an e-mail to a woman in his sent e-mail file (a Yahoo account). When I approached him about this (I think that he is cheating on me) he admitted that he took the picture but says that he never sent it to anyone. He claims that he went to the Genius Bar at the local Apple store and they told him that it is an i-phone glitch: that photos sometimes automatically attach themselves to an e-mail address and appear in the sent folder, even though no e-mail was ever sent. Has anyone ever heard of this happening?” she says on Apple Discussions.


Now the whole situation is rather peculiar, in that the man, if he is indeed cheating on his wife, will never admit to it and will definitely blame it on an iPhone glitch. But scrolling down the Apple Discussion posts, one will notice two things. First of all, most posts will just make fun of the situation and will say that the man is simply making it up to get out of an embarrassing situation. Then you get to the worrisome part: posts that claim the glitch is for real. The iPhone does indeed attach photos to outgoing emails, just that it does that on extremely rare occasions. I must admit that this is the first time I hear about such a glitch, but I am immensely curious to find out if there really is such a problem with the iPhone. If you have any info regarding it, please post a comment below.

In related news, the Search-by-Voice iPhone app that Google planned to release on Friday, the 14th of November, is finally here. We are willing to forget the four day holdup, simply because the app does indeed work and does so in a very efficient manner. You can now pull out your iPhone, and enter a query by simply uttering the words – just like in Star Trek.
