The newly launched Apple iPhone 4S comes with new smart antennas which is expected to solve the issue of the antenna flaws of iPhone 4.
The earlier version of the phone, the iPhone 4 has only one antenna dedicated to the cellular networks. However, problems aroused when users pick the phone in a certain way which resulted in blocking the dedicated antenna for cellular network.
On the contrary, the iPhone 4S has two antennas which are located in the stainless steel band on either sides of the phone. So, if a user blocks one antenna, the other antenna could pick up the cellular network thus providing uninterrupted signal on the phone.
“Improving on the innovative stainless steel external, dual-antenna design of iPhone 4, iPhone 4S is the first phone to intelligently switch between two antennas to send and receive. iPhone 4S now supports twice the download speed with HSDPA of up to 14.4 Mbps and iPhone 4S is a world phone, so both CDMA and GSM customers can now roam internationally on GSM networks,” Apple said in a press release.
