iPhone Firmware Update 2.0.2

by Sachin Balagopalan on August 18, 2008 · 2 comments

UPDATE (8/20/08): Looks like they have definitely addressed the issue with “garbled” calls. When I make phone calls the voice clarity is much better now and I don’t hear the sporadic garbled sounds. Also surfing in 3G mode is faster. I cleared the Safari cache and when juxtaposed against a 2.0.1 iPhone you can certainly see the difference.

As reported by Boy Genius earlier today Apple released a firmware update for the iPhone and I just downloaded and installed it on my 3G. No one has been able to confirm if this update does actually address the iPhone 3G reception problems all us of were blogging and talking about last week. In typical Apple fashion the release notes simply state “bug fixes” so no one knows what exactly this update addresses.

I haven’t had a chance to put the device thru its paces after the upgrade but right off the bat I don’t see any significant changes. I still have only one or two bars inside the house in 3G mode and when I disable 3G I get four bars consistently. I also disabled WiFi and tried surfing in 3G mode. I think it’s worse now than before - excruciatingly slow - I tried a couple of websites. Google and FaceBook were pretty swift but a bunch of others were painfully slow.

My first impression is I don’t think they addressed the reception problems that are paramount to most users at this point. They may have addressed the battery issue - I’m not sure - I’m going to try to use the location based services and see if the battery will drain as quickly as before.

For now don’t get your hopes too high if you haven’t upgraded yet. I just don’t get it - Why can’t they specify in the release notes what bugs were actually addressed. Seems logical if you’re a software company!

Please do not spell “its” with an apostrophe (unless you mean “it is”).

Thanks for pointing out the obvious error.
