Apple’s newest iPhone was selling briskly Thursday as thousands lined up outside stores around the world to become among the first to own the device amid concerns of supply shortages.
Poor reception has been reported by owners of the new iPhone 4. Poor or completely absent reception has been reported by users when holding the device without a case.
Apple has claimed that reception issues involve a software problem that incorrectly indicates a bad signal, and that a fix is enroute. Because the iPhone 4 uses a new antenna design integrated into the iPhone body’s edge, some people believe a hardware revision is necessary and/or the bumper cases should be supplied free with the iPhone. Cases, such as the bumpers sold by Apple, may prevent interference caused by a direct hand-to-iPhone contact.
Poor reception problems — even worse than previous versions of the iPhone — have been posted on an Apple support discussion board page on entitled ‘the real reason for bad reception.’
