Apple to end antenna issues by placing it behind the logo

A new patent filed by Apple suggests that the company is looking into ways it can reduce interference with its antennae in its iPhone and future products, focusing on a process that would see the antennas placed behind the logo on both phones and MacBook laptops. The filing almost certainly comes after the “Antennagate” debacle when the iPhone 4 launched; the device would lose signal if two of the antenna housings were bridged with the hand. This led to Apple handing out free iPhone 4 cases for users that requested them and looks to have inspired a change in where the wireless antennas will be housed in the future.
