iOS – 4.0 v.s. 4.0.1 Signal Strength Display Comparison
Naturally we run a few iPhones around the office, and just for kicks we upgraded an iPhone 3GS to iOS 4.0.1 and ran a (totally unscientific) comparison on how the signal bar strength display differs with iOS 4.0.1 v.s. an identical iPhone 3GS running 4.0. Of course, the actual reception of the device is unchanged – this is just a cosmetic fix to more “accurately” display the signal strength.
Yeesh. Looks like the truth hurts:
There’s no doubt that the new software significantly changes how may bars are displayed on the iPhone. The good news? Now we have fewer bars to lose.
