iPhone 4 proximity sensor fix coming in next update

Among other revelations from its iPhone 4 press conference, Apple claimed that a fix for the iPhone 4’s proximity sensor issue would be included in the next update. The issue, in which calls can be accidentally interrupted by button presses and hang-ups, has been reported since the launch of the device, and eventually lead to a grass roots campaign to gain press coverage, as the majority of negative iPhone 4 reports had focused on the antenna issue. Apple did not specify when the update would arrive, or whether it would be a small, incremental update—like iOS 4.0.1—or included in the larger iOS 4.1 update, a beta of which was released to paid developers earlier this week.
