iPhone 4′s Proximity Sensor Problem Might Not Be Fixed In iOS 4.1?

iPhone 4 Bluetooth issue

We had reported last week that iOS 4.1, which is currently in its third beta includes a fix for the proximity sensor problem reported by iPhone 4 users.

While not documented by Apple in the release notes, some users had reported that after installing iOS 4.1 beta, the proximity sensor on the iPhone 4 is far more reliable.

Though iPhone 4’s antenna issue has been highly publicized, the proximity sensor problem seemed to be a more serious issue based on feedback from our readers. So the news that iOS 4.1 includes the fix for the problem had come as a relief to users.

Apple is expected to release iOS 4.1 (or at least announce the release date) at the special media event on Wednesday.

But The Next Web has just reported that Apple Australia spokeswoman Fiona Martin has confirmed that it still hasn’t fixed the issue. The Next Web reports:

With iOS 4.1 in its final beta testing stages and about to be released to the world, it appears the fix will not be forthcoming when it rolls out to users.

iPhone 4 users who have been patiently waiting for a fix are bound to get frustrated if the issue issue is not fixed in iOS 4.1.

iOS 4.1 is also expected to fix Bluetooth  problems and iOS 4 performance issues on iPhone 3G.

We will have to wait and see if Apple provides an update on these problems at the special event on Wednesday.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we have any further updates so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
