Apple Does Not Need to Recall the iPhone 4

Posted on July 13, 2010 by

The Internet is being stormed today by “experts” saying that Apple needs to recall the iPhone 4.  This is all because Consumer Reports recently said that their findings “call into question the recent claim by Apple that the iPhone 4’s signal-strength issues were largely an optical illusion caused by faulty software.'”  Apple has already announced that they will be coming out with a fix to this “issue” that a small percentage of iPhone 4 users are experiencing, lets wait for the update before we make these statements about a recall.  Apple also said that “if you are not fully satisfied, you can return your undamaged iPhone to any Apple Retail Store or the online Apple Store within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.”  The funny thing is, no one is returning the iPhone 4.  This tells me that there isn’t really an “antenna problem.”  Of course, this is something that we already knew from our extensive iPhone 4 testing a few weeks ago.
