iPhone 4 Reception Problem All in Your Mind

I’ve got to hand it to Apple, they make a reporter’s job a LOT easier. Remember that whole issue with the iPhone 4 antenna when it was held a certain way? We laughed when we were told to “don’t hold the phone that way”. Now, today we’re on the floor laughing at Apple’s latest “excuse” for the poor reception.

Turns out its not the hardware that is faulty and losing reception…it’s the software not displaying it properly. Apple today stated:

“Our formula, in many instances, mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. For example, we sometimes display 4 bars when we should be displaying as few as 2 bars.”

If this happens to be true, then Apple has more issues than lawsuits for botched products…now we’ve got the whole “inflated numbers” issue. Keep with it Apple, you’re only a few more statements away from your own show on Comedy Central.
