iPhone 4 Recall 2010: Signs of nervousness

By Peter Chubb - Jun 27, 2010

There have been rumors on the Internet that Apple’s Steve Jobs was to issue a recall for the new 2010 iPhone 4 device however; it seems that this was due to a posting by the fake Apple CEO. The funny thing is, The Daily Mail thought that it was from the man himself following some tweets on Twitter.

According to Desire Athow from itproportal, The Daily Mail quickly removed the page once they learned of their mistake – there are certainly signs of nervousness, and you can understand why. We do not believe that there will be a recall; we learned earlier that the current problem could be fixed with a simple firmware update to iOS 4.0.1, which we mentioned in a recent post.

The iPhone 4 was released on Thursday, June 24, 2010 and has suffered from a signal issue. We reported in our hands-on review on the issue that when your hand is placed over the black strips on the external antenna the signal bars goes down to nothing.

We mentioned those signs of nervousness before; this was because Apple shares have now started to drop, falling by 0.86 percent to $266.70 on Friday. News outlets should no better than to trust anything on Twitter and tweets by Apple’s CEO, as the real Steve Jobs does not have a Twitter account.
