iPhone TIPS: Grip of Dead (GoD) Fixed in iOS 4.0.1 ?

Posted: 26 Jun 2010 03:26 PM PDT

Yesterdays there were many tweets regarding the so called "Dead Grip" issue or "Grip of Dead". One popular one was the following:  
"Blocking iPhone 4 antenna kills reception. Blocking mic kills audio, and covering the screen makes it impossible to see Retina Display" tweeted by Daniel Eran Dilger
If you have followed the blogposts and youtube the last 48 hours, you might get the impression the whole world is kind of pointing the finger to the antenna construction of the new iPhone 4. But is it really an issue? and if the answer is yes, is it a hardware issue?

There are reports of the same Dead Grip symptoms on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS after updating to iOS4 and the reporters are saying it did not had these problems in previous iPhone OS 3. Why is this so interesting? Well, iOS is software and if this is true that it is caused by iOS 4.0, then this issue can be fixed in iOS 4.0.1 just because it is software! The ware is soft so it is fixable you understand?

Appleinsider reports that there were forum discussions pointing the problem caused by the iOS 4.0 software. It might switching frequencies differently than before iOS 4.0. Please check that excellent post for the technical nitty gritty stuff.
"Readers report that Apple's tech support forums originally confirmed that a iOS 4.0.1 software fix addressing the issue would ship early next week (as early as Monday), before the comments were subsequently taken down along with all the other related discussion about the matter."

So if that is all true, the Dead Grip is gone by the next iOS 4.0.1 update and all the buzz and worries are gone too. And, if it is not true, there are still work arounds. Just wrap a iBumper around your iPhone 4 or "Just NOT holding your iPhone that way". And if you want to avoid scratches in the front or back of your new iPhone 4 then why not also stick some iPhone 4 Screen Protector  like invisible shields to protect it. Mean while, let's wait for iOS 4.0.1 the coming days before making the issues bigger in our head. I trust everything will come OK soon.
