Fixing the Antennas.

I believe Apple is delaying this issue to fix the Antenna problem. The color of white in which Apple uses, does require a unique blend of color coordination. However, they will use this time to coat the antennas to resolve the reception on the iPhone4.

Apple would default if not utilizing this time to initiate a right for this wrong.

BINGO.

That seems to be the obvious answer to those who actually think for themselves and apply logic to that process.

I agree, it makes sense. They have to fix the antenna issues before sending out the next batch.

You're telling me rather than sell the phones that are on the waiting list, that Apple would rather send it back to the labs and have them re-engineer the phone without a specific release date?

What kind of logic do you call that? How about "retarded" logic? 🤣

At first reaction, your thought would be a natural one. However, Apple has much riding on this antenna issue. They will not have to redesign the entire phone. The phone design is done and ready to go. Retrieving any White drone iphones that happened to make it to the production line, is the hardest part for Apple as they need to disassemble them to gain access to the antennas. The easiest and least expensive fix is to remove the antennas from the already assembled and coat the permanently exposed antenna part with a special hardening chemical. The iphones not yet produced, will have to wait until the existing antenna parts are retrofitted with this coating before installation. While it is a delay, it is in Apple's best interest to nail this ...

"The easiest and least expensive fix is to remove the antennas from the already assembled and coat the permanently exposed antenna part with a special hardening chemical."

1) 2 months (when I'm guessing we'll see them) is not enough time for Apple to conduct thorough materials tests and put the phone into production.

2) Apple would re-open Antennagate by doing this. It will be seen as an admission there is a serious flaw with the antenna design (there isn't) , that Apple lied to their customers about it, that everything they said in the press conference was BS.

3) Nobody will care about Antennagate by the time the white iPhone ships, so it's Apple re-opening a closed book. They're not going to do that.

4) If Apple hastily applies...

Yeah, Apple is soooooo arrogant and full of crap they posted a video proving their point. How arrogant! Apple offering evidence of its point! I'm going to buy a competitor's product!

Anyone who believes something with a simple explanation and proof is gullible and naive! All 3 million of them!

Honestly man, you're a complete tool, and you embody the very sheep-like nature of the people you claim to be above.

Current US Population: ~300M

Are you suggesting that it's impossible for at least 1% of the US population to be an uninformed consumer?

I'm not saying everyone that purchased the iPhone 4 is an uninformed consumer, but it's very well possible.
