As you are aware, the latest version of the iPhone, the iPhone 4, ditched the previous methods of embedding the antennas in favor of a metal band antenna forming a bezel around the phone. From a design standpoint this looked outstanding, but the good looks didn’t exactly translate into good functionality…
In what may be a remedy to the iPhone 4’s signal woes, these latest patent details show an antenna placement in spot familiar to all Apple fans; right behind the logo.
Theoretically, this would allow the antenna to draw a strong signal without impacting the phone’s form, or function. Apple’s designers are likely kicking themselves for not thinking about this before.
Looks like a good idea to me; what about you?
