“Apple has quietly begun a search for several antenna engineers, corporate job listings show,” MacNN reports. “People who win one of the positions will be expected to “optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices,” specifically the iPad and the iPhone. Candidates must have 10 or more years of experience in the field.”
“All of the openings appeared on June 23rd, the day many people began receiving the iPhone 4, which has fueled speculation that they may be related to the reception issues people began reporting at the same time,” MacNN reports. “Three other positions connected to iPhone antenna work became available on June 16th, however, which suggests either that Apple has been aware of problems for several weeks or that the June 23rd additions are purely coincidental.”
