iPhone 4 Reception Problems: Apple’s Guide to Fix

We have some breaking news to bring you now, as Apple has officially responded to the reception issues that users have been complaining about on the iPhone 4. Their answer? – You are holding it in the wrong way.

As reported from Engadget, it turns out that there ‘will’ be reception issues on the new phone if you place your hands over the bottom-left hand corner of the handset. Apple has suggested that users need to change the position of which you hold the phone, or buy a case which covers this part of the area – great.

Steve Jobs himself replied back to a user’s email about the problems, by saying that he should ‘avoid holding the phone in that way’. Here is Apple’s official fix to the problem:

”If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.”

So there we have it. We were holding the phone in the ”wrong place” all along. We hate to say it, but is this just a case of bad design?
