Last Tuesday Apple delivered iPhone 4 and the same day many reported some reception issues in this new iDevice. Although more procedures are required to prove that new iPhone 4 has a flawed antenna, but the early tests show that there are some problems with the new smartphone.
When a man asked Apple’s CEO about this problem, Steve Jobs replied in the mail:
“Nope. Just don’t hold it that way”
He says the people are holding iPhone 4 the wrong, but it doesn’t provide much comfort to early buyers. So the word on the web is that new iOS 4.0.1 is coming to the rescue.
Readers report that Apple’s tech support forums originally confirmed that a iOS 4.0.1 software fix addressing the issue would ship early next week (as early as Monday), before the comments were subsequently taken down along with all the other related discussion about the matter.
The fix is expected to address a issue in iOS 4 related to radio frequency calibration of the baseband. Readers who saw the original forum discussions say that the issue is believed to occur when switching frequencies; because the lag is allegedly not calibrated correctly, it results in the device reporting “no service” rather than switching to the frequency with the best signal to noise ratio.
Well, we hope the problem is solvable with an update. But the question is:
Will this early update will shake the confidence of new buyers or raise it?
Stay tuned for more news on this matter.
