Apple has issued a software update for the latest iPhone to help fix connection problems that led to a flurry of online complaints from customers.
T-Mobile said the software was available for users to download to their iPhones on Tuesday, but that it was not yet clear if the upgrade would fix all the connection problems.
AT&T Inc the only U.S. network operator carrying the
iPhone, confirmed that Apple had provided a software update
but declined to give details about what it was aimed at
One of the key attractions of the latest iPhone is its
faster, third-generation (3G) Web connections when compared
with the first iPhone that was launched in mid-2007.
However, users around the world have complained about
dropped calls and inconsistent Internet speeds, with the
phone often reverting to a slower technology known as Edge
even in 3G areas.
The iPhone 3G has gone on sale in about 22 countries since
its launch on July 11.
