iOS 4.0.1 Firmware Update To Fix Antenna and Signal Reception Issues

Written By Sam on 27 June 2010

As we all know Apple’s next gen handset iteration – the iPhone 4 had many issues related to reception and switching basebands and Apple is now set to release an updated firmware to its iOS4 to fix all those issues. This update of iOS 4 to iOS 4.0.1 firmware will fix the most annoying antenna issues of iPhone 4. Users of iPhone 4 faced many reception problems that appeared to be a software issue in the signal meter and which might be resolved in the update planned to be release next week.

Comparatively, iPhone 4 software has a less accurate signal meter that shows poor signal at times than an iPhone 3GS, which provides better call quality. iOS 4.0.1 Software Update fix will address issues related to the radio frequency calibration of the baseband along with issues related to switching frequencies. Though we are not unsure whether the reception problems were due to poor signal to noise ratio or mishaps of the software, but this firmware update is certain to provide a better baseband than the earlier version.

All the iPhone 3GS, 3G users who unlocked their handsets using UltraSn0w 0.93 are suggested to stay away from this update as it might result in a locked iPhone. iPhone 4 users interested in unlocking or jailbreaking and are not facing any reception issues can also avoid this update as well.
