Even if iOS 4.3 is the greatest thing since sliced bread, there may be some bugs to work out.

Per Engadget, reports have surfaced of iPod touch users having graphics glitches after updating to iOS 4.3.

As seen in the video below, the problem looks like overlapping icons and “interference” on the screen:

A growing thread on the Apple message boards of fourth-generation iPod touch users also describes how resets and factory restores don’t solve the problem, it seems, and users are looking to Apple to fix the problem with an update soon.

“I’ve noticed in the lock screen, certain notifications seem to have some sort of flash thing (almost looks like it’s blinking in some cases),” says one user. “Similar to other posters in this thread. After rebooting it many times, the same issue is happening.”

“The graphics for some reason have a snowy and animated outline,” says another. “This iPod is not hacked or dropped or anything I don’t understand why this is happening. I’ve turned it off and turned it back on and still having the issue. It is NOT a major issue, it is odd though and having issues with the display on this type of device still can’t be a good sign right?”

Stay tuned for additional details and if you’ve seen the bug on your end, please let us know.

  1. Ive got the same, ipod touch 4G 8gb.

  2. Yup, noticed the video glitchon my iPod Touch 4g (32gb) right after updating to the new iOS.

  3. I’ve noticed this as of Friday. Stopped by the Genius Bar and they had not seen this before. Ran a test on the iPod and said everything looked fine. Did advise me to manually quit the applications running on the iPod by going to the apps which are running and holding my finger on an app at the bottom of the screen. You’ll be presented with the red”-” which you select for all the apps. I had lots and lots of apps running which I’ve quit and hopefully that will help reduce the issue until an update is pushed out.

  4. I’m not seeing any such issues on my 4th gen touch (64GB) with 4.3. It upgraded smoothly and is working perfectly.
