Επίσημη ανακοίνωση της Apple για το iPhone 4

H Apple εξέδωσε ανακοίνωση πριν λίγο σχετικά με τα προβλήματα της κεραίας του iPhone 4.


Επισήμως, η Apple αποδίδει το πρόβλημα σε λάθος στον κώδικα της baseband που υπολογίζει με ακρίβεια τον αριθμό των bars. Συγκεκριμένα, το iPhone 4 δείχνει δύο παραπάνω μπάρες στην ένδειξη του σήματος απ’ότι θα έπρεπε.

Η Apple θα κυκλοφορήσει σύντομα μια αναβάθμιση για το iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS και iPhone 4 που θα διορθώνει το πρόβλημα αυτό με βάση την φόρμουλα της AT&T.

Upon investigation, we were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong. 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. Users observing a drop of several bars when they grip their iPhone in a certain way are most likely in an area with very weak signal strength, but they don’t know it because we are erroneously displaying 4 or 5 bars. Their big drop in bars is because their high bars were never real in the first place.

To fix this, we are adopting AT&T’s recently recommended formula for calculating how many bars to display for a given signal strength. The real signal strength remains the same, but the iPhone’s bars will report it far more accurately, providing users a much better indication of the reception they will get in a given area. We are also making bars 1, 2 and 3 a bit taller so they will be easier to see.

We will issue a free software update within a few weeks that incorporates the corrected formula. Since this mistake has been present since the original iPhone, this software update will also be available for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.
