Just in time for Apple’s press conference today that will supposedly address the iPhone 4 antenna “issue” comes an update to the latest operating system to grace the iPhone, iOS 4.0. According to the release notes, the software updates the OS to version 4.0.1 and “improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display.”
The update works with iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4. Like with all updates for these types of devices, to install simply sync your iPhone to iTunes and click the Update button. To install, simply sync your iPhone to iTunes and click the Update button.
It’s kinda funny how Apple is passing this off as a simple mathematics error. If so, why have a press conference at all? Unless it’s to reaffirm the problem is simple software and then point on the fix they just issued? Only Steve Jobs knows for sure and he’s not saying — at least until a bit later today.
