iPhone 4S seems to fix “death grip”

 BY THE APPLE GIRL

MacRumors reports that Apple seems to have fixed the death grip  issue – signal loss when holding the phone –  with the new iPhone 4S. If you have followed this issue since the iPhone 4 launch, you know there has been a lot of hype around it especially from competitors.  Consumer Reports had stated that they wouldn’t recommend iPhone 4 due to its signal attenuation  problems. Apple even held a press conference that the signal loss occurs on all mobile phones to a certain degree.

Early iPhone 4S reports seem to indicate that the issue has been resolved. During the iPhone 4S launch, Apple announced some upgrades with respect to the antenna design. The iPhone 4S can now intelligently switch between two antennas depending on signal conditions.  Apple might have fixed the death grip issue as part of its antenna upgrade.

So if you were putting off buying an iPhone because of the death grip, you will have to find another reason now 🙂
