For the last couple of months, Apple have been taking a high priority in the press with the iPhone 4 antenna issues. The solution was to give everyone who experienced issues a free case. Telcel, a Mexican mobile carrier have said that after September 30th Apple are releasing revised iPhone hardware which does not suffer from the same attenuation issues.
Marco Quatorze, Telcel’s Director of Value Added Services told CanalMX that initial units released in Mexico would suffer from the same antenna problems reported online and that Apple would still be offering free cases to everyone who asked for one, from their site. Quatorze dropped the ‘new hardware’ bomb however afterwards, saying that in October a new revision of the iPhone 4 will be released which has the issue fixed.
MacRumors however have said that it is unusual for a carrier representative to have information of Apples upcoming plans, especially not being tied to a strict NDA.
