Last week Apple issued a statement saying that the reception issue with the iPhone is a software and not a hardware issue. Today Apple released iOS 4.1 to developers which is supposed fix the issue. The first you will notice after upgrading (if you are a developer) will likely be the new coverage bars; they are not a bit taller. MobileCrunch has tested the “death grip” and can confirm that it did not fix the issue with reception. Can this mean a delay in Canada or even a recall?
