Bloomberg reports today that Ruben Caballero, Apples senior antenna expert, expressed concerns to Steve Jobs during the iPhone 4s early design phase that the antenna could possibly cause reception issues, and that it presented a serious engineering challenge. Bloomberg was told about Caballeros voicing of his concerns by a source who is not authorized to speak on Apples behalf and who didnt wish to be named. Another anonymous source claims that an unnamed carrier partner had also expressed concerns about the antenna to Apple, having carried out tests prior to the phones launch which indicated that the antenna might be a problem area.
Apples spokesman, Steve Dowling, declined to comment on the matter, and refused to put Caballero up for interview when asked to do so by Bloomberg, and Caballero couldnt be reached either by phone or email when Bloomberg tried to contact him separately. Guess well just have to wait and see what happens at the press conference tomorrow.
