OS 3.0 Bug Making App Icons Dissapear, Switch Apps

A strange bug has been causing trouble for some iPhone OS 3.0 users. We haven’t seen it ourselves yet, but several users on Apple’s discussion boards are reporting strange problems with app icons being either blank white squares, switching icons with other apps, or disappearing altogether. TUAW confirmed the strange bug when their own Mel Martin had the AT&T Navigator app and Reuters News icon switch places. One developer says issues like these were highly common in the beta releases, and weren’t fixed until the final release of the software.

Are you having strange issues with your app icons in 3.0? Let us know in the comments.
