iOS 4.1 Will Not Fix iPhone 4 Proximity Sensor Issue

by Tech Toggle on August 31, 2010

First it was the antenna issue that surfaced right after the launch of iPhone 4. Apple kept mum over it until consumer response (or negative response) grew to such proportions that Steve Jobs had to announce that it did exist and offered free bumpers for the new iPhone 4. The problem with antenna was believed to be a firmware issue but it was not fixed even after the release of iOS 4.0.1 (click here to download).

Even though Steve Jobs announced that the iPhone 4 proximity sensor issue will be fixed when Apple releases iOS 4.1 (next major iOS update) but Apple Australia’s spokeswoman Fiona Martin disagrees. According to her, Apple has not fixed the iPhone 4 proximity issue as yet and since the release of iOS 4.1 is eminent in the coming days, it’s highly likely that the problem will persist.

There are rumors that Apple is going to use the September 1 event to announce iPod touch with 3G capability. If this is true then it definitely is going to usher another round of frenzy summer sales for Apple. (news via TheNextWeb, image via Enadget)
