iphone4-signal

“You’re holding it wrong” doesn’t really qualify as a suitable fix for the reception issues on the new iPhone 4, so Apple has finally come forth to admit it’s a real problem. The Cupertino crew are also saying that they’re going to fix it, through a software update. Apple’s official press release claims the reception issues are not a hardware problem; they have to do with the software. As such, they’re working on a fix and this software update will be pushed out some time soon.

iphone-4-dissected-200

The Apple iPhone 4 price remains quite competitive when considering that it shares several of the same components that its oversized brother, the iPad does. The same A4 processor, possibly clocked down to conserve battery life, a wireless 802.11N antenna, Bluetooth 2.1 module and 16GB/32GB of memory are some of the common similarities the two devices share.
