Apple claims to have fixed broken iPhone

Written by Nick Farell

We are not sure yet
Fruity peddler of broken iDreams, Apple claims to have fixed faults in the iPhone 4 which include sluggish performance to unreliable proximity sensors. Apple insists that the problem has not been caused by poor design and shonky hardware.

It claims that the fault lies with version 4.0 of the operating system, which came pre-installed in the iPhone 4. It faces problems ranging from a sharp dip in the performance of the iPhone 3G to a failure in the proximity sensors in the iPhone 4 which caused phone calls to terminate suddenly while the user was talking.

Apple Grand Pooh Bah Steve Jobs said that the iOS 4.1 would soon be released this week to fix the iPhone 4 proximity sensor problems, sluggish iPhone 3G performance, and some Bluetooth connectivity issues. According to the Mac press there are signs that the proximity problem has been fixed.

The iPhone 3G performance problems have also been fixed according to Apple's own user forum. At the moment that is all we have seen from the tame Apple press. It will be a few days before users can tell if the corrections are a placebo or not.

Steve Jobs needs to stop sucking cock and actually live in reality.

Considering iOS 4.0 is built to run on the iPhone 4 with 512MB of ram, I don't think it's surprising that it's a little sluggish on the iPhone 3G that has 128MB of ram. That's just the way things work.

I've been checking out various high-end Android phones and I've yet to find one that is significantly better than my old iPhone 3G (not running iOS 4). I was really hoping to find one because I'm fed up with ATT. I guess I'll just wait for a CDMA iPhone.

Apple really, really needs to do that. I'm sure it's coming, but they need it now. An iPhone 4 with Verizon's superior network would make the iPhone 4 even better than it is now. That is, it's the best phone one the market despite the overblown antenna angle.

iPhone 3G performance is much better with iOs 4.1 vs 4.0... snappier feel for common tasks and faster for opening some apps. There is still occasional lag, most noticeably 'hanging' for a second or so when starting to enter text. Happens much less often but it's still there. At least the phone feels usable now... but still not as good performance as on os 3.x os.

I hope Apple will release further performance improvements. Slowness I can handle, but the random freezes are intolerable, even if they are less frequent now.
