iPhone update fixes signal accuracy

Confirming rumors from earlier today, Apple has begun seeding iOS 4.0.1 through iTunes. The update makes just a single major change, that being improved accuracy in iPhone signal display. The company recently promised a software fix in light of reception issues, though it's now believed the problem is traceable to hardware. The download is only available for the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4.

For iPad owners, Apple has meanwhile posted iOS 3.2.1. The firmware solves several issues, most notably trouble with Wi-Fi connections. It also corrects a glitch with PDF attachments in Mail, and two video bugs: one causing videos to freeze, and another hampering the official iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter. The one feature addition is Bing support for Safari search.

    No real change

    I can't see that the update helped iPad Wi-Fi reception much. It's slightly better, but still poor.
