At Apple’s [AAPL] press event on Friday, Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs quoted a Consumer Reports article which said ‘Apple’s Bumper case alleviates the iPhone 4 signal-loss problem’.
Apple were basically saying that Consumer Reports said the iPhone 4 was fine as long as you use a bumper case, sort of giving the impression that Consumer Reports would now recommend the iPhone 4.
That isn’t the case, as Consumer Reports has now responded to the press conference, and they still won’t be recommending the iPhone 4 and here is why.
Consumer Reports believes Apple’s offer of free cases is a good first step. However, Apple has indicated that this is not a long-term solution, it has guaranteed the offer only through September 30th, and has not extended it unequivocally to customers who bought cases from third-party vendors. We look forward to a long-term fix from Apple. As things currently stand, the iPhone 4 is still not one of our Recommended models.
I guess Apple has some work to do on the iPhone 4, before the get the seal of approval from Consumer Reports.
