Apple says it will hold a press conference on Friday to discuss the latest iPhone model, which has been beset by complaints about its antenna.

On Monday, Consumer Reports said careful testing has confirmed user reports that holding the phone over a particular spot drastically reduces the signal strength it receives. Covering the spot with duct tape or a case alleviates the problem.

Apple Inc. hasn't commented on Consumer Reports' finding yet. The phone went on sale three weeks ago.

Apple said late Wednesday that the press conference will be held Friday at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.
