iOS 4.0.1 update now available

Somewhat earlier than expected, Apple has rolled out the much talked about new firmware for its iPhone 4, which according to the company will fix the handset's ongoing reception problems.

In actual fact, the update merely recalibrates the way the phone displays its signal bars, and makes the bars a bit taller so they're easier to see. Whereas previous versions showed a full five bars, despite only a mediocre signal, the new version now more accurately portrays the accepted maximum (that you'd get if you stood next to a tower) and the minimum signal level before a call is dropped, and has a more linear drop off in bars as it loses signal.

The new update is available immediately through iTunes and is compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4. As per usual, you'll have to wait a while as you need to download the full 180MB firmware, despite only being a tiny update.
