Apple has finally admitted there is something wrong with their phones, but its not what you expect.
Revealed in a press release today Apple admitted their phones, which has a reputation for constantly dropping phone calls, was in fact often showing a much stronger signal than the faulty devices could actually pick up.
â€œ(The) high bars were never real in the first place.â€ they said. They claimed they were â€œstunnedâ€ to discover their formula used to display signal strength was â€œtotally wrongâ€.
Admitting that the â€œmistake has been present since the original iPhoneâ€ and that the phones has been misreporting signal strength for years, the company promised a software fix to all iPhones that will make them more honest.
Unfortunately Apple did not address the â€œGrip of deathâ€ issue directly, claiming instead the issue of dropped calls when the phone was held in the left hand was common to all phones.
The software fix is promised in the next two weeks, which promises taller 2nd and 3rd bars, and appears directed at fixing perception rather than reception.Â I am sure it will be a great success.
