Apple Announces iOS 4.1 for iPhone

Posted on September 1, 2010 by

Steve Jobs announced the upcoming release of iOS 4.1 for iPhone and iPod touch. One of the major fixes will be the iPhone 4 proximity sensor issue.  Some new features to iOS 4.1 include HD video upload over WiFi, High Dynamic Range photos, TV show rentals and Apple’s Game Center.

High Dynamic Range photos are created out of a combination of three photos with low, medium and high exposure settings. This makes the photo more clear and vibrant.

Game Center, originally revealed for iOS 4, is another key feature of iOS 4.1 which allows users to add friends, play against friends and do all sorts of social gaming stuff on their iPhone. iOS 4.1 will be available for download via iTunes next week.

Jobs also revealed that iOS 4.2 will be released in November, finally bringing iOS 4.x support to the iPad. The free update will include wireless printing as well as a new feature called AirPlay, which replaces AirTunes. AirPlay will offer streaming of video, music, and photos. iOS 4.2 will be compatible with the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone.
