這是今天聽到的笑話: iPhone 4 的收訊差是軟體問題!

[ Apple: iPhone 4 的收訊差是軟體問題! ]

所以, 這也告訴我們說, 如果iPhone 4 把通話收訊強弱格數 “自由的” 放大縮小就可以改變收訊品質, 真是太佩服Apple公司的軟體研發人員啦! 真希望我銀行戶頭裡的數字也可以用軟體 “自由的” 改一改, 那有多好! *smile*

先簡單看看 Apple給使用者的說法節錄, 很有趣…

… we were surprised when we read reports of reception problems, … … We have discovered the cause of this dramatic drop in bars, and it is both simple and surprising. … …
( … 我們讀到各種報告的收訊問題時十分驚訝, … … 我們已經發現訊號格下降的原因簡單又讓人吃驚… )

… 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, … … mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. … …
( … 我們驚訝的發現用來計算信號強度的公式完全錯誤, … … 會造成錯誤的標示比正確多出2格的信號強度. )

To fix this, we are adopting AT&T’s recently recommended formula. The real signal strength remains the same, but the iPhone’s bars will report it far more accurately, … … We will issue a free software update within a few weeks that incorporates the corrected formula.
( 為了解決這問題, 我們將採用 AT&T 建議的公式. 真實的信號強度將維持一樣, 但是iphone的信號格會更加正確的顯示. … … 我們會在幾週後更新的軟體中採用新的計算公式. )

看到這封信, 我跟 Apple 公司一樣, 也十分吃驚, 呵呵!

這大概就好像說是廠商發現 Camry 2.0 的引擎原來應該是1600cc, 所以把車子後面的標示改為 Camry 1.6 一樣. 真令人震驚喔!

全文如下:

Dear iPhone 4 Users,

The iPhone 4 has been the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. It has been judged by reviewers around the world to be the best smartphone ever, and users have told us that they love it. So we were surprised when we read reports of reception problems, and we immediately began investigating them. Here is what we have learned.

To start with, gripping almost any mobile phone in certain ways will reduce its reception by 1 or more bars. This is true of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, as well as many Droid, Nokia and RIM phones. But some users have reported that iPhone 4 can drop 4 or 5 bars when tightly held in a way which covers the black strip in the lower left corner of the metal band. This is a far bigger drop than normal, and as a result some have accused the iPhone 4 of having a faulty antenna design.

At the same time, we continue to read articles and receive hundreds of emails from users saying that iPhone 4 reception is better than the iPhone 3GS. They are delighted. This matches our own experience and testing. What can explain all of this?

We have discovered the cause of this dramatic drop in bars, and it is both simple and surprising.

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.

We will issue a free software update within a few weeks that incorporates the corrected formula. Since this mistake has been present since the original iPhone, this software update will also be available for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.

We have gone back to our labs and retested everything, and the results are the same- the iPhone 4’s wireless performance is the best we have ever shipped. For the vast majority of users who have not been troubled by this issue, this software update will only make your bars more accurate. For those who have had concerns, we apologize for any anxiety we may have caused.

As a reminder, 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.

We hope you love the iPhone 4 as much as we do.

Thank you for your patience and support.
