Every people designing equipment and the like know that one way to cheat is to tamper with the gauges display.
That is what Apple is trying to do with its “software fix” for iPhone. Do I believe that it is a software glitch? Nope. Otherwise Job would not had sent out the now infamous “don’t hold it that way” letter, nor the fact that Apple did come out with a Help article explaining how not to hold your iPhone.
They are just trying to sweep the issue under the carpet. Out of sight == out of mind.
