A circulating rumor suggests that Apple will be releasing an iOS update next week, perhaps as early as Monday, which will take care of the dreadful antenna signal attenuation issue that plagues the iPhone 4. The 4.01 update was referenced in a series of forum posts on Apple’s tech support forums that have since been removed, but not before readers grabbed the pertinent information and relayed it to the rest of the world. Of course, the success of this fix hinges upon the fact that the antenna issue is software-based and easily corrected with a quickly deployed update. If it is hardware-based, then Apple may have a bigger problem on its hands.
