UPDATE: Apple Confirms Software Fault In iPhone 4

iphone4repairApple has confirmed that complaints from users of the new iPhone 4 concerning weak network signals are not unfounded afterall. Owners of the new Apple smartphone have complained of loss of signal especially when the phone is held from the lower left-hand corner.

Apple says the problem is connected to a fault that causes the new device to incorrectly display the phone’s signal. The problem is believed to be related to an error on how signal bars are shown on the screen, rather than the signal itself. There are however suspicions from some industry experts that the problem is caused by a deeper signal problem as opposed to a design flaw.

Following this revelation, Apple has promised a patch or update that will be available for download within a few weeks although current owners are reminded that a full refund is available for interested users within 30 days of purchase. The question to ask however, is will changing the display really fix the problem or just painting over the cracks to save Apple from further embarrassment?

Talking Point

Now that Apple has confirmed that this is not just a problem caused by holding the device, especially for left-handed users, do you think that potential buyers will be turned away from purchasing iPhone 4?

    I finally got to mess around with the new iPhone at the Apple store and it’s SWEEEET!!!! Also, heard a re-occurring rumor that Verizon will be picking up the iPhone in Jan. 2011. The rumors have disappointed in the past but I think this might be the real deal. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

    One of my friend was just going to buy that iphone and i told about that. And now he ended up with buying iphone 3G. These bugs will certainly frustrate the buyers.

    I think the new download that will be make available soon, will resolve the problem of the phone’s signal once and for all. Any buy who did not like that the phone can return it with within 30day and get full payment back.

    I always go for good product and have no time to play with the problems. I often try to keep my self away from such problem oriented devices.

      This sounds like a good approach but then how does one know that a device will be problem-oriented?

    I don’t think there is any technical hardware fault in Iphone. Its either in the structure or the software as the company says..
    If these problems are not fixed now then i think Iphone 5 will be able to do so..

    Not at all. I don’t this would stop the consumers from buying iphone. It’s the most popular mobile phone currently and i guess apple would do something about it.
