After the press conference at 16 July, at 10 am PT, we all would like to know more about the iPhone 4 issues right? Well here is what Steve told us. First of all, what did Steve said about the proximity sensor issues? Simple, he said they can and will fix this in the next software update “he did not say when this update will be released”. Good news till so far right? That’s one problem solved but what about the antenna issue? Well Steve said there is no such thing as a perfect phone, there will always be some problems. According to Steve only 0.55 percent of iPhone 4 users have contacted AppleCare regarding antenna or reception issues, so there will be no recall. The only thing Apple can offer is a free case for your iPhone 4 device, to apply for a free case go to Apples website late next week.

A reader of Gizmodo said he replaced his iPhone 4 because of the signal issue and the proximity sensor issue. When he received his new iPhone 4 he noticed some differences between his new iPhone 4 and his first iPhone 4. He noticed that the “black [plastic] bezel isn’t as black on the new one”, he “couldn’t see the proximity sensor at all on the previous iPhone 4, now he can” and “The stainless steel band on the new phone is less ‘steel-y’ and more matte” it looks like they added a coated of some kind. He decided to try out the death grip and said there is certainly some huge improvement. So what does this mean? Is this guy just loosing his mind, because he has a working iPhone 4 now, or is Apple silently replacing the iPhone 4 with a new “improved” second edition. » Is Apple Silently Replacing The iPhone 4 With An Upgraded Version?

The iPhone 4 isn’t as perfect as everybody thought it would be. We have the most discussed problem “the antenna issue”, we have the yellow spot problem “which has been solved”, the crashing camera app and poor white balance shots. Ow… I almost forgot the reversed volume buttons. Now a new iPhone 4 problem has been reported, this time its about the proximity sensor which is not working correctly. Proximity sensor is a sensor that detects if you hold your iPhone next to a close object, if it detects a close object “in this case your ear” it will turn of the touch screen of your iPhone. This sensor is needed so you cant accidently hit some buttons on the screen while you are making a call. » iPhone 4 Proximity Sensor Not Working Correctly!
