Further evidence that Apple are having issues with their latest phone has been found by EndGagdet – Apple are advertising for three new positions, available within their iPhone division.
Bizarrely these new positions are for antenna engineers!
The whole new style of antenna, that Apple and all their fanboys/fangirls have been ranting on about for a while now, isn’t actually that good… You should be aware that if you hold the phone in a certain way the signal will drop, although it mainly only affects left handed people out there, (sorry but Apple just doesn’t love you lefties).
The matter hasn’t been helped by Apple, and certainly not be Steve Jobs himself, when he responded with, “’just don’t hold your phone that way”. Meow! This has lead Nokia to come out with their slogan of ‘how do you hold your phone’.
I think this Is an Apple own goal here, but instead of offering free repairs or things to help, Apple are advising owners to buy a £28 piece to cover over and solve the issue.
Clever marketing, or the beginning of the end?
