Apple has been among the top producers of electronic devices for a number of years now. Every time they release products into the market, they are full of new, innovative, and impressive features. Apple was the first to introduce a phone like iPhone making it popular only days after its first launching announcement. It had numerous features that other phone did not have at that time. It had a capacitive touch screen making it fully functional without the help of other peripheral devices. Comparatively it had a larger touch screen than many phones in the market. Sequentially, they have released newer models of the iPhone annually. This year, is the year of the iPhone 4.
This summer, Apple released the much-anticipated iPhone 4. It is, no doubt, an amazing phone. It has an extremely fine (retina) display resolution of 960 x 640 pixels on a screen of 3.5 inches. This is the maximum resolution per unit area that a phone ever had. Unfortunately, their release appeared to have a number of bugs and faults that were not identified prior to the release.
Among Other Issues with the phone…
A large number of people complain that iPhone 4’s antenna does not work properly. A new issue has also surface with people unhappy with how AT&T is not supporting full speed downloads for Apple’s customers. However, some days ago, the company confirmed that it is not limiting upload speeds for iPhone 4 users. They say that the users who are experiencing such problems are less than 2% and that these are actually the after-effects of a software problem found in the AT&T equipment in some towers. The company also said that the software problem would be fixed shortly.
Time will tell…
Some of the iPhone 4 users are claiming that these speeds are much lesser than the speed they got when the iPhone 4 was first launched. There are also reports that the uploading speed does not exceed 100kbps. This is irritating to customers because only days earlier, they reached speeds of several megabits per seconds. It is important to note that not every user faced this problem. The statistics may support AT&T’s explanation of faulty equipment in some towers. When explaining in depth, the company revealed that the problem might be with the Alcatel-Lucent hardware they are using. They assure that Alcatel-Lucent is developing the software fix for this issue.
The best advice for all the iPhone 4 customers who are experiencing this problem is patience. When the software fix has been developed and AT&T has solved the problems that are resulting in the disgruntled customers, the issue will be settled. The Apple iPhone 4 is an incredibly innovative device, promising to reshape the future of mobile phone manufacturing and technology altogether. If you plan to acquire one of these wonderful products, you should be aware of the issues that are currently revolving around. You might want to wait until all the service issues have been dealt with before investing in it.
