Download iOS 4.0.1 for iPhone to Fix Signal Strength Bars

By 18-07-2010   AppleDownloadsGadgets

Download iOS 4.0.1 Software Update, an essential update for all iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G owners, that improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display. The real signal strength remains the same, but the bars on iPhone will indicate it more precisely.

Apple officially accepted that all versions of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G were displaying wrong signal strengths.

Upon investigation, we were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong. Our formula, in many instances, mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. For example, we sometimes display 4 bars when we should be displaying as few as 2 bars. Users observing a drop of several bars when they grip their iPhone in a certain way are most likely in an area with very weak signal strength, but they don’t know it because we are erroneously displaying 4 or 5 bars. Their big drop in bars is because their high bars were never real in the first place.

To fix this, we are adopting AT&T’s recently recommended formula for calculating how many bars to display for a given signal strength. The real signal strength remains the same, but the iPhone’s bars will report it far more accurately, providing users a much better indication of the reception they will get in a given area. We are also making bars 1, 2 and 3 a bit taller so they will be easier to see.

You must understand that the reception would not change, but merely the signal bars would be more accurately displaying the signal. Steve Jobs has announced free Bumper cases to improve reception for iPhone 4 users.

iOS 4 works with iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G, but not all features are compatible with all devices. For example, multitasking is available only with iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

    I got the iphone new, and my 1st impressions of the new iphone are totally positive. Apple has once again built a product that looks good and feels great in the hand, and the user interface is perfect. I have some problems with the connection if i hold it in a special way, but with the case it works for me correct… I LOVE IT!
