Apple Updates Software To Mitigate Connectivity Problems

Posted Aug 20, 2008

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has updated the software that runs the connectivity of the iPhone last night.  This update should be able to resolve some of the connectivity problems that many Apple customers have been complaining about. 

“We have had complaints about connectivity in the Netherlands but have not had more complaints than usual for a 3G phone in Germany. Our technicians said today Apple has issued a software update but it is too early to tell if the problems are solved,” mentioned a spokesman at T-Mobile.  T-Mobile is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG (ADR) (NYSE:DT).  AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) also confirmed that Apple made the software update. 

Although the iPhone is selling by the millions, many users have had problems with dropped calls and slow Internet speeds.  The iPhone 3G handset will be launching in another 20 countries in two days.
