Apple iPhone Apology (VIDEO)

Apple has finally admitted there are problems with the new iPhone, but does their explanation make sense, and is the apology good enough?

There have been widespread reports of problems wit the display that shows whether your iPhone is picking up a signal, and that when you hold the metal parts on the sides of the phone makes the signal lose its strength. Or so it appears on the iPhone 4 display.

According to Apple: "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."

The issue is set to be corrected, so soon you'll be able to buy a new iphone 4 and not worry about any glitches. We'll see how long it takes for the first iphone sales to start.

For a company that prides itself on its carefully-honed attention to detail and aesthetic, Apple's apology for a faulty signal display on the iPhone was a rare admission that it got things wrong. But will that be enough to put a growing controversy behind it? For more than a week, iPhone customers have complained that gripping the metal antennas surrounding the phone's body resulted in loss of signal strength. In a release put out early Friday, Apple acknowledged that something was amiss with the smartphone's design. The company reported being "stunned" to learn that the formula used to determine the number of signal strength bars to display had turned out to be "totally wrong."
