If we didn’t have enough of all the stories, rumors, gossip, and even supposed robberies with the iPhone 4, we now have a new theme to add to the story of the year. Some users are starting to report that they no longer have problems with their handsets after they were replaced by a new model .
The new terminal, or at least its new version, has subtle differences with the previous model, they say. Apparently, the frame around the terminal is now a little more matt than the previous one, and on the black cover you can see the proximity sensors when you couldn’t see them before.
Apparently the new metal frame coating, in addition to slightly modifying the tone, isolates the material so as not to bridge both antennas and suffer from the clucked coverage problem. On the top of the speaker you can see the proximity sensors , as in the white iPhone, and apparently it solves the failure of some terminals with the screen off.
It is very good that Apple has taken action and has put a real solution to the issue once and for all, but I think Apple has really done wrong and has made its policy of absolute silence clear. The company has actively and passively omitted the problems of the terminal when it was clearly a lie.
But if that wasn’t enough, the company has also had the nerve to tell a user “you’re not using it the right way”. As I say, it is a joy to see that the problem will go down in history, but the ways have been far from correct and it would be nice to have an official press release talking about the solutions and acknowledging their failures.
