Apparently, the death grip was not the culprit behind the poor network reception of the Apple iPhone 4. Apple has written an official letter to all the iPhone 4 owners with regard to the poor signal strength. The letter says that Upon investigationthe engineers at Apple found that the formulaused to calculate the network strength was wrong.
In many circumstances, the wrong formula, used to display 2 more bars of signal than the actual network strength. To fix this issue, Apple is going to adopt AT&T’s network strength calculation formula. Along with this, Apple is also going to make the network bar 1, 2 and 3 taller so that users can easily see them. Apple is going to release a free software update to fix this issue.
The software update will be available within a few weeks and will use the new network signal formula. This software update will also be compatible with the iPhone 3GS, and the iPhone 3G. Reader’s can read the full letter from Apple here.
The Spirit jailbreak application has been updated to support iTunes 9.2. Other than support for iTunes 9.2, no new features have been added. The Spirit application is one of the easiest way to jailbreak your iPhone/iPod Touch or the iPad. Sadly, the Spirit application still does not support iOS4 and/or iPhone 4.
Currently, the Spirit application supports iOS 3.1.3 and 3.1.2 for iPhone 3GS, 3G, and the iPhone 2G. All version of iPod Touch are supported as well. For the iPad, iOS 3.2 is supported. Users who want to jailbreak their iPhone 3GS/3G or iPod Touch running on iOS4 can use either sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool 4.0. On a personal note, I would suggest iPhone 3G owners not to upgrade to iOS 4.
The iPhone 3G does not have enough horsepower to run iOS4 properly. If by chance, you have already updated your iPhone 3G to iOS 4 and want to go back to iOS 3.1.3, follow this guide.
It has hardly been a week since the Apple iPhone 4 has been launched, and already numerous problems have cropped up with the phone. The biggest problem with the iPhone 4 is that it loses network coverage if you are holding the phone in your hand in a certain way. When the iPhone 4 owners complained about this issue, Steve Jobs told that this problem is occurring because people have been holding the phone in the wrong way.
This is not the first time the iPhone is being criticized for its poor network reception. Now after numerous complaints, Apple has been working hard to fix this matter. The company will be releasing a small software update to fix this network reception issue. The iOS 4.0.1 software fix is expected to be released to the public as early as Monday of the coming week.
The software fix will address an issue in iOS4 related to radio frequency calibration. Apple still has not confirmed this piece of information, so we should take this news with a pinch of salt.
