Owners of new top-end apple smartphones massively complain about the poor quality of mobile communications and the disgusting Wi-Fi reception. This is despite the fact that in mobile devices there is an additional antenna at the bottom of the case. The Apple MacRumors and Reddit forums have flooded reports of problems with the Internet and unstable LTE-connection and there seems to be no connection to the territory and mobile operators. The problem is assumed to be software, and Apple’s renunciation of Qualcomm modems could not affect the appearance of such difficulties because the modem is separated from antenna amplifiers and does not affect the RF output power limitations. Strange, smartphones themselves do not see the problem. The signal strength indicator shows four bars. At the same time, the transmission speed with the maximum indicator is lower than with the minimum value. Whether a similar problem arises in Russia is unknown. By the way, sales of new products in our country will start in two days – September 28th. The manufacturer itself has not yet commented on the situation, but users expect Apple to fix the problem programmatically in the next iOS update.
