Date-Focused Note Taking

Apple: Bloomberg Lied, We Didn’t Know About Antenna Issues

Well, this is starting to be difficult to follow. There are some antenna issues with the iPhone 4, but probably you already know that. There are have been many reports about these issues, including posts by Consumer Reports and statements from Apple itself. Then yesterday Apple invited a few selected journalists to attend a special conference in the Cupertino campus tomorrow.

Today, Bloomberg reported that an engineer told Steve Jobs last year that the iPhone 4 was set to have antenna issues with that design. Now, Apple has responded to this rumor.

An Apple spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal:

“We challenge Bloomberg BusinessWeek to produce anything beyond rumors to back this up. It’s simply not true.”

True or not, it doesn’t really affect us. We’ll possibly know the whole truth in less than 24 hours.
