How Apple Fixed the Proximity Sensor Issue

So Apple finally fixed the proximity sensor issue on the iPhone 4. How did they do that with a software update when it's clearly a hardware issue?

What they did was ignore any touch inputs when the proximity sensor erronously turns the screen back on. Keep in mind, the condition in which it will ignore the inputs require you to keep in contact with the screen while the proximity sensor malfunctions.

See the video I made for a visual demonstration.
