iOS 4.01 Will Fix The iPhone 4 Antennae Issue?

Will it be able to suspend the phone magically in air? The only way the antennae seem to work, properly.

According to unconfirmed reports, Apple is planing to release a patch to fix iPhone 4's antennae issue. Apple insider reports that there was a discussion on Apple support boards, that was taken down, now, discussed about the new patch.


"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." reported Appleinsider


Either if Apple is hiding or not, everyone familiar with the iPhone systems expect an upgrade to the iOS 4. But may be Apple is scared all 1.7 Million iPhone 4 users will clog the system like those 600,000 users pre-order dudes and dudettes.

Come on Steve, it will be 1.7 million happy iPhone users. Or should we follow, "And sometimes an antenna that's not great, but good enough, is good enough.", an antennae expert who already bought an iPhone 4! (I think he is biased :) But I like the guy. So read him already.

The iPhone 4 design has "moved the antenna action from the back of the phone to the sides," but might only improve things if you or Jobs can "suspended magically in air." He also noted due to the design, may actually make things worse when the phone is placed in the user's pocket.


Well, even if I like iPhone 4, I will wait for the iPhone 4.1 next year! I will bash my partners iPhone 4 for tests, developments and such.!
