Good to see they intend to fix it rather than ignore it.

It's probably AT&T network because I have a 3GS (waiting on my 4S) and it drops calls like crazy. - Although Apple did acknowledge there was a problem with the 4 and provided a solution "free case". - They fixed the problem in the 4S. - It's hard to redesign and change the internals of a phone once it has already gone into production.

This is Apple after Steve's no longer there. They have some real promise to finally get rid of the reputation of being d%#@$ like their former CEO placed upon them.

Add one more to the mix who won't hate. I applaud Apple on their response to the bugs found. No fuss, minimal drama. The bugs are found and squashed while being openly acknowledged by the company.

See, guys? No double standard here. Apple does something right, and they'll get props for it, the same as everyone else.

"Even better is this will be the first time users get to use the snazzy new OTA updates available in iOS 5."

I bet that they did this on purpose to test the OTA updates without announcing it haha.

Considering the precedent set with design issues/embarrassing bugs at Apple by Steve Jobs, this is... I won't say surprising, because Jobs isn't around to be an asshole to a complaining customer or to spin bulls**t about "other people have this problem, but we don't. " however, I wasn't sure how Apple would respond this time around. I'm glad to see that they didn't follow Steve's example. I'm glad to see they did a good job by not making excuses and simply busting their asses on fixing the issue instead.

So, in the end, this will simply be a footnote, not remembered down the road. It'll be like the batch of defective screens in the first DROID Xs, or the wifi bug in Android servers, or the battery life/speaker issue on the Boulder in the G'zOne series. This is the kind of behavior, which along with a changing attitude toward constant litigation against competitors and more equitable relationships with business partners, could help sway my opinion of Apple away from animosity and back toward a healthy respect, even if I prefer someone else's products.

The same standard could apply to you too. You're intelligent enough to know what I mean by that. Learn from this, Taco. You idolize Apple, so follow the example they've just set.

It takes quite a bit to be the bigger man like this Snig.. And hopefully taco follows suit. I myself feel the same way.. my anger towards sheep is due to them blindly following the BS that SJ was as a person.. If Apple can become a decent company.. Quit with the patent race and just give their customers a amazing phone (4s is piss poor compared to what they could really offer if they focused their finances and productivity into rnd) maybe changed their slight of tongue in marketing and just put up then most Android fans might go to Apple.. Sure jobs did quite a bit for the company.. But not much for customers.. The tech is there.. Give it to the people. Apple fans should understand they aren't getting the full potential of what the company could give them.. Sure its shiny.. But not magical.. No innovation.. A mid range phone to say the least.. The list goes on. Apple may be making a turn for the best hopefully the sheep will see they deserve better not by Android but by Apple.

Strongly second this. The scene became ugly only when Apple made it so. They are creating competition not with their products but with their attitude. What they do best is antagonize people.

Odd a midrange phone that's copied by everyone. Siri is way ahead of what android offers for example bit takes better pictures and has smoother and more stable performance. A better ecosystem with way better and more secure apps. iCloud is better than googles cloud services.

Apple beats android in just about every way. Only thing google has is free navigation.

That's just you being delusional.. Camera lol google the best camera on a phone.. And let's not hear speed but quality.. What took Apple months developers did in 8 hours. smoother? Lol easily done when your phone isn't running anything.. Multitasking isn't a problem with my phone... What's iPhone 4s clocked at? Lol laughable. Behind the curve. App security? Lol I choose what goes on my phone.. I don't need a program to rule my life.. My phone is an extension of me.. I can customize anything I want so its different from any other phone.. Yours is just a carbon copy of every other persons iPhone. You don't even have a iPhone 4s compare your pos to the best on the market.. You fail in every way.. Crawl back into your cave troll. Your arguments mean nothing.. Get a better phone then step up.. Till then leave your comments in a place where they mean something.. maybe under your pillow cuddle with them for all I care. You rally your words to fight for something you don't even own.. Go play with your dads 4s.. Or your friends our even yourself.. Make better use of what's between your ears.

I hate to say it but with the new management at Apple things seem to be better for their customers. The antenna issue was way worse than this, it was ignored and claimed not to be true. Now they are apologizing,admitting there's an issue and is going to fox it.

Great business move by Apple obviously the announcement of the iphone 4s was a huge let down so they need damage control. Battery life sucks, Apple admits and loyal customers who are in denial about the iphone 4s was not that huge of an upgrade, feel justified for their purchase because "apple cares about their loyalty" talk about being strung in. Give me a break!

Apple always finds a solution to its problems, they are a very intellegent company, they wouldnt have the kind of sales they do for no reason. The difference between the problems with apple products and everything else is that opposers to Apple make a big deal about them. People expect apple to be perfect, and no body is. So when Apple is not people are suprised. Apple never said that they are perfect, everyone else did. When something usually works like its suppose to, and things usually work as they are suppose to I guess people see that as being perfect. Its not suprising why apple gets confused as being perfect and no one else does. Its always a big deal when the Iphone has one or two things wrong with it, but when another companys product doesnt perform as expexcted or even on par with other products of its caliber its no big deal, its funny. When your the best or on top people are always looking to take you down. People will always try to make a big deal out something when they are insecure about what they have to offer.
