When Steve Jobs announced on Friday that they would be giving away free cases to all iPhone 4 users, because of the iPhone 4 reception issues, he also showed us a glimpse inside Apple’s Antenna Design and Test Labs.
Apple has spent $100 million developing an advanced antenna design and test labs, you can see what they look like in the photos below.
Apple never releases a product without thoroughly testing it first. To do this, we built our multimillion-dollar antenna design and test labs. These labs feature 17 different antenna characterization chambers (or anechoic chambers) designed to accurately measure antenna and wireless performance.
It certainly looks very impressive, although you would have though will all this hardware at their disposal we wouldn’t be hearing about iPhone 4 antenna issues.
