Apple iPhone 4 Press Conference Friday
Apple iPhone 4 Press Conference Friday – Apple announced today that they will be addressing the problems with their iPhone 4 on Friday. The company has received a number of bad reviews after some design flaws with the phone were found to seriously limit reception. The problem certainly does not help, as AT&T is already known for dropped calls. The company said that they will be addressing the reception issues on Friday. The event will be held at 10 AM at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. As of now, the company has declined to comment any further on the matter or give any hint as to what their solution to the problem may be.
The iPhone 4 was released on June 24, and sold over 1.7 million units in the first three days that it was available, making it the largest mobile launch of all time. The device was also the fastest selling device in the history of the company. Everything seemed to be going well, until thousands of reports regarding reception issues started to pour in.
It was discovered that when the phone is held in the left hand, your hand completely covers the antenna, limiting the reception of the phone and causing drop called for many of their users.
“There have been requests to have the phone recalled.” Said one expert. However, they went on to say that it is a “very unlikely scenario given the damage that would cause to Apple’s bottom line and its reputation.”
There are many different ways the company can deal with the problem, and it will be interesting to see how they decide to go about it. It is unlikely that they will issue a recall, and the company will likely save that as a last-resort measure. Some have speculated that they may offer some sort of repair service at their Apple stores.
