    I think you have to d/l the entire OS, no matter how small the adjustment.

    Does this fix the Safari on iPad page caching problem?

    That is pretty ridiculous for a x.x.1 update. It’s going to take me 4 hours to DL this update at this rate, but I’m lucky to have any internet at all so I’m not complaining.

    That is my only issue with the iPhone 4.







    PS: This recent article by Pogue on Snopes.com reminds me of the idiot mob mentality going on with the iPhone 4. Someone says something unsubstantiated which is then repeated by others until you need some site with actual researchers and critical thinkers to site the record straight, but it’s gotten so out of hand that it’s only good for those seeking truth. Speculation is one thing, making absolute statements without any evidence is nonsense.

    Yeah, I have the problem too. When holding the phone up to my head, I get:



    -- Calls put on Hold

    -- Call trying to switch to FaceTime

    -- Calls ending suddenly

    -- Phone dials another contact while I'm on the line with a person already

Firmware is typically much lower level stuff than your avg application and has access to things that as developers we don't (are not supposed to anyway) access.



    IHTH.



    Yeah, and I realize that distinction but since it treated the two updates separately in the process, I was thinking it was referring to the modem/baseband firmware. Apparently, that wasn't the case since the modem firmware is still listed as 01.59.00 after the update. I was wrong.

    It's an intuitive gesture ? hold phone to face activates FaceTime.

    yeah, it is for me. was talking to a friend this morning, phone to the ear, and the call hung up. for once i suspect it wasn't an at&t dropped call. called them back and about ten seconds after putting the phone up to my ear my peripheral vision caught a flash of light from the phone. looked at the phone to see that it had launched google maps with some address from my contacts, and i haven't used that contact in over a year. guess my fat cheek and the proximity sensor don't mix.



    According to one "genius", it could be wax in your ear! ;-)

    Steve will demonstrate tomorrow on stage that 4.01 fixes the "problem".

    if you take photos, transfer them off of the phone to a computer, then erase the photos on the phone, it resets to IMG_0001. This problem began with iOS4 - it was never a problem on iOS3, which remembered the file #. This is really a silly problem that apple could have easily fixed in this update and didn't - basically you can't transfer photos into a single folder without them overwriting the older file.

    You do, but that is the issue. It?s excessive for what is essentially a miner fix. I understand that it?s considerably more foolproof to do it this way, but I?d like to see x.1 updates be full downloads and x.x1 updates be spot updates, more like Mac OS X, which only update the items that are changed but updates the entire item.

    So don't press it against your face!

    [sarcasm starts]

    Guess what, all the people that care about their phone, keep it away from sweaty hands, greasy face, linty hair etc, and always use headset. For once, Apple includes that in the box! Now we know the real reason for the inclusion!

    "Actually, you are wrong yourself. "



    The update didn't mention correcting the "bridge/death grip" issue. Perhaps 9to5 should reword?

    I have got into the habit of making a call and pressing home when connected. Therefore the call is minimized to a green bar at the top and I can't hang up or put them on mute. Sad I have to do that, but it works. I haven't hung on anyone because of the sensor, but I think that's because I have a beard.

    OK...I have 4.0.1 on now. From the exact same location in my home, my bars went from 5 to 3.





    It is clear to me why this fix was sent by Apple. Apple is attempting to throw AT&T under the bus. Most (dumb) users will now think that their terrible reception is AT&T's fault and not Apple's poor antenna design.



    I have other phones in my house, Samsung and Moto, and they still display 5 bars for AT&T.



    Sad.

    So anyone that's updated to 4.01 does it fix your proximity sensor issue? Also if anyone has iPhone 4...can a case fix the proximity issue, like it does for the antenna issue?

    Seriously.





    But do you think those bloggers will admit that they were all wrong tomorrow? Not a chance.

    The iPhone 4 update is larger because the screen is much higher resolution so all of the graphics are also higher resolution, so the file sizes are bigger. Also, there's the FaceTime software as well.

    Apple doesn't release the iOS updates in small patches, but rather re-packages the updates in a full OS install. They do this so that you can upgrade from any version (such as upgrading from 2.0 to 4.0.1).



    I thought people knew this information by now, but there are probably a lot of new iPhone owners out there this year so... just so you know.
