Apple to Issue Update for iPhone 4 Flaw

Ainsley Jones

In response to numerous complaints and a lawsuit over its iPhone 4 antenna issues, Apple has issued an official statement. Apple says the heart of the problem is an algorithm that calculates signal strength, not the antenna and has promised a software update that will address it, according to Macworld.


The patch, based on recommendations from AT&T, will also be available for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. The update is expected to be made available within a few weeks, Ars Technica reports.

R2D2 here,

Apple Inc. said Friday that it was "stunned" to find that its iPhones have for years been using a "totally wrong" formula to determine how many bars of signal strength they are getting.  Since Job's first fix 'you're holding it wrong' did not sell well he now has the solution: Use software to pretend that the hardware is working.  Yeah, that's the ticket.  Oh, and that new software will also make you weigh ten pounds less and will add 10K to your bank account.   Ahhhhhhahahahaha!  Oops, help me Obi-Wan!  I laughed so hard I fell over and can't get up.

It's July and hot on Earth.  Better drink up that Kool-Aid.

No such problems with my Droids.   The hardware is the best in the galaxy.  You earthlings can expect another delivery very soon.  The Millennium Falcon has just jumped to hyperspace to get my Droids there without delay.

The Force is with us!   R2D2

Customers need to understand that a first generation of a new model can have its pros and cons. Similarly iPhone4 has its problems and issues related to antenna design.

Good thing they are updating to fix the issues. Though I believe those are still blown out of proportion.
