Don’t trust your iPhone 4 when it tells you you’re getting great reception. Apple says it has found the root of all those reports that the phone’s having reception problems: its formula for calculating how many bars you’re getting is off. The company plans to fix the issue in a free software update soon. Problem solved!
But wait, you say, that won’t actually stop all the dropped calls and data degradation I’m experiencing. And you’re right, it won’t. “What’s troubling is that this is the second time Apple has blamed signal strength/reception issues on software,” Engadget complains. „It’s also worth noting that Apple in no way admits to an antenna design flaw.”
