iPhone Software 1.0.2 update significantly boosts Wi-Fi reception, say owners

“iPhone owners are reporting that the latest software update for their smart device has significantly boosted its wireless reception,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.

“Although Apple Inc. only said Version 1.0.2 included unspecified ‘bug fixes,’ owners on several popular message forums, including those on the MacRumors site, have come forward with claims that the iPhone now connects to wireless access points once written off as out of range,” Keizer reports.

“‘My Wi-Fi reception is definitely better,’ a user identified as schulzmc said yesterday… ‘Wifi reception and connection is much improved,’ seconded snowboarder on the same thread yesterday,” Keizer reports.

  1. Wi-Fi reception’s getting weak . . .

    “I’ve got to concentrate… concentrate… concentrate… Hello?… hello… hello… Echo… echo… echo… Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon… Manny Mota… Mota… Mota… “

  2. I’d say the reception is better. I was setting up a co-worker’s iBook (he got used for $300), and he had a full signal showing on his Airport, and my iPhone had about 1/2 signal. Now, the same spot, the iPhone is getting full signal now.

  3. Oh noes…. my iPhone just crashed and demanded that I restore all the software and start from the beginning, instead of allowing me to decide on the update.

    Why?

    Because I was so bold as to add a ringtone to my $600 piece of crap.

    More and more disappointed everyday.

    MDN Secret Word?

    “police” as in the freaking Apple Police are starting to make Redmond look like a bunch of innovative hippies.

  4. I had this pain at the back of my knees for quite some time. I don’t know how I got it but it’s been bugging me for awhile. I had to stop the treadmill at the gym and all other running/joggin activities. Leisurely strolls were difficult if not impossible. My doctor said it was a form of vascular disease and my legs, both, may need to be amputated just above the knee. It’s really strange, after the iPhone update, the pain seems to have disappeared! Running and jogging are enjoyable again. Thanks Apple, for that wonderful update. It’s changed my life!
