iPhone iOS 4.1 Update: No Fix for Proximity Sensor Problems?

By Alan Ng - Sep 1, 2010

We have some important news for iPhone 4 customers now, as it has been alleged that Apple will ‘not’ be fixing up a known problem with the proximity sensor with the next update to iOS 4.1.

According to this report from Gizmodo, an Apple spokesman for Australia has commented on the problem, saying that the issue will not be fixed in time before iOS 4.1 is out.

This is contrary to comments from Steve Jobs himself, who previously informed iPhone 4 users that issues with the proximity sensor will be fixed up in the ‘next update’.

Two things to note here: One is that it is good that Apple are working hard on a fix to the problem, and two, the issue remains pretty isolated, as I know there are a lot of you who have said that they have no problems with the proximity sensor whatsoever.

It is obviously a major frustration if calls are being dropped because of this, so it still be good if Apple were to give us an update on this at their media conference tomorrow.

Do you have any problems with the iPhone 4 proximity sensor? Let us know your thoughts on this.
