The Apple press conference might throw light on the issue later today, but in the meantime, Apple's iOS 4.0.1 software update might sort out your iPhone 4 woes.As you might have guessed, the reason for this update is to deal with signal issues that have haunted the handset since launch. According to Apple, the update 'improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display'. That's good news if that is the problem with the antenna/signal for the majority of users. Fingers crossed.The update is for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and the iPhone 4. To get it, just sync up your hnadset and the update will be offered to you. The update comes just hours before an Apple emergency press conference, which is believed to be focusing on this very issue.
Whether it's an apology, a speech that everything is well or something more significant (like a recall or free bumpers) isn't yet clear. But by 6pm tonight (when the conference starts), the vast majority of users will have updated their operating system, giving us all a fair idea about the success of Apple's software tweak. In other words, there's no hiding Apple.
