Apple's iOS 4.1 issued to developers, reception tweaks ensue
posted by Daniel P. / Jul 15, 2010, 9:34 AM
After the update, a difference in signal bars visualization is observed, when comparing an iPhone 4 with and without iOS 4.1. The first three bars are taller now, and reception seems to be more aligned with the reality of the AT&T signal - at places where iOS 4 shows five bars, an updated phone shows only three.
If visual delusion were the issue, it probably wouldn't have muddied the Apple juice for weeks on end. Now all that's left is to wait on that conference tomorrow, with baited breath.

HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's so great to see apple take such a mighty fall, this shows that they have been lying for years and it's finally caught up to them. Now, they are fixing it and showing the truth that their phones are great, but only when you have signal and now they just showed that it's in less places that people thought. The truth hurts fanboys

Finally Apple said they made a mistake on the math of counting reception bars, but it is definitely a done on the purpose. Apple wanted to lie to its consumers that they are getting 5 bars all the time but ended with an epic fail. I cannot wait to see what Steve Jobs has to say about iPhone 4. Is it still a fact that people are all hyped up by the rumors???

sorry but a software update doesnt bandaid the fact that AT&T's network sucks, what they need to do is release the white one on vzw's 4g network and fix the flaw in the antenna design. issue resolved. steve jobs can still wipe his ass with the hundred dollar bills of fanboy's and stop sweating over the android sells biting on his heels.

Hey Genius, Verizon doesnt have a 4G network. Sprint does. And the Sprint 4G network is slower and is less capable then AT&T's. Can u multitask browsing the web AND talk on the phone with Sprint's 4G network? No sir. But u can with AT&T's Network. Ive worked for every major US carrier (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint/Nextel. Verizon AND AT&T have the fewest dropped calls (excluding the iphone which AT&T has put on a different data routing service (no data prioritization) which is why they are slow and have so many dropped calls. When the data pipeline gets overwhelmed u get kicked off and the connection gets reset. Anyway, Steve Jobs will not EVER recall ANY of his products because he would be considered a failure, and after ALL his work, he cannot let that happen!

the white iphone isnt out either GENIUS, verizon is launching 4g network towards the end of this year. and from the looks of it apple has put yet another delay on their white iphone so who knows when it will be out. and seriously do you need to talk on the phone and surf the web at the same time?? and how many times does your phone work and the internet work at the same time? so spotty you have to be in a certain place hopping on 1 leg and holding with your right hand with your pinky not touching the phone. go get a attitude else where its not my fault you have a shitty iphone and want to get pissed at everyone who calls it as it is. capodadon2k99 go find your sheppard i think i hear Job's calling for you.
