Just did some reading and I was wrong. Antennas can be tuned to multiple frequencies, but the one in the iPhone is not (or at least certain regions are tuned to certain frequencies). This article is an interesting read, and they actually foresaw the attenuation issue.http://microwavejournal.blogspot.com/2010/06/antenna-technology-enables-multi-band.html?m=1
The need to interface with a different spectrum should only affect the radio used in the phone. The antenna isn't compatible with certain frequencies and not others.
Of course not. When they started selling the 4S it was an indication that they were ready to market an upgraded product. The indicator that the antenna was poorly designed on the 4 was when they changed it for the 4S even though the rest of the phone body stayed the same (along with the complaints, tests, reports, and Apple support sitesite acknowledgement).
A poor example. Your reasoning can be flawed or perfect, and it has no bearing on whether your conclusion is correct. All we've been discussing was the analysts' conclusions because we generally have no insight into their reasoning process.
If you're right coincidentally, you're still right.
There was plenty of pushback. You don't recall all of the complaints from customers about dropping signal? Apple actually has a support page dedicated to it:http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4389And here's the article about the 5C not meeting expectations. I didn't say he was disappointed in it.http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/01/27/tim-cook-admits-iphone-5c-share-lower-than-expected-says-demand-was-different-than-we-thought
I notice you left out the part of my quote that said the analysts were in agreement with Apple, which they were. You can't have it both ways. If the analysts were wrong, then so was Apple. If Apple was right, then so were the analysts.
Just because a product doesn't merit a recall doesn't mean that it was appropriately functional. Apple redesigned it to be more difficult to block the signal while gripping the phone. And yes the 5 was redesigned because Apple knew they could improve the design over the 4S, just like they were able to improve the design of the antenna from 4 to 4S.Regardless of how you want to spin Tim's comments, he said that the 5C did not meet expectations. The analysts also said it...
The antenna was redesigned for the 4S, the 5C did not meet expectations according to Tim Cook himself, and I don't recall an analyst saying that either iPad had failed after release. In fact I don't recall any analysts saying the iPad mini would fail before it was released although I do recall that for the original iPad.
