Apple plans software fix for iPhone 4 reception problems
How can a software update fix what seems to be a hardware flaw in the iPhone 4? Well, it turns out -- according to posts on Apple's tech support forums and AppleInsider -- that the way the phone changes frequencies is miscalibrated, and the lag during the change registers as "no service" instead of actually switching to the best frequency.
So, left-handed iPhone 4 owners, hope is not lost. Keep an eye out for iOS 4.0.1 next week.
