iOS 4.1 Proximity Sensor Fix, Does Yours Work?
Apple released iOS 4.1 yesterday and with it a supposed fix for the iPhone 4 proximity sensor issue, something they had promised to do. However it is starting to look like Apple hasn’t fulfilled that promise of fixing the proximity sensor.
According to an article over on Softpedia by Filip Truta, some iPhone 4 users are saying that iOS 4.1 doesn’t fix said proximity sensor, although apparently others are saying it does.
There is a six page long thread over on Apple Discussions, started by user PNAYLOR which begins with…“At work, can’t download 4.1 yet, but I’m eager to see if the Proximity Sensor issue will be fixed. This is my last straw, if 4.1 doesn’t do it, I’m afraid I can’t wait any longer. I need a phone.”
The user then follows later with…“So I decided to just do the upgrade here at work. Just finished the update and the Proximity Sensor seems 500 times better. I can’t get it to fail. I’m so relieved, I love my iPhone, I didn’t want to give it back. Its really soon to sign off that its 100% fixed, but its looking like 4.1 did the trick…”
There are other similar entries, but when you hit page 3, things take a different turn…Brian Snyder2 posted, “I just installed 4.1 and on my first call activated the speakerphone twice, and face dialed a bunch of random numbers. I’m extremely disappointed.”
While user fluffhead00 posted…“I had absolutely NO proximity issues before the 4.1 update, and now I have them like crazy. Sometimes it doesn’t even turn off the screen when I first put it to my ear at all.”
So it would appear there are still some problems with the iPhone 4 proximity sensor, so we’d like to know if iOS 4.1 has fixed your proximity sensor or not, feel free to let us know by dropping us a comment.
