By Alan Ng - Sep 1, 2010

Apple used today’s media event to give a full introduction to their next iPhone update, iOS 4.1. We have a release date to give you now, as well as a list of the bugs that have been fixed from iOS 4.0.2.

You’ll be pleased to know that Apple has apparently fixed the proximity sensor issues found in the current iPhone iOS, as the company states that the problem has now been removed. Other changes include fixes for Bluetooth and some issues on the iPhone 3G as well.

As for new features, you’ll be pleased to know that the Game Center announced at WWDC 2010 will finally make it’s debut within iOS 4.1. You can look forward to a full report on that shortly. Other new features include HDR photos (High Dynamic Range), TV show rentals and also support for uploading HD videos over a WiFi connection.

Best of all, iPhone iOS 4.1 will be available to download next week, free of charge. We’ll update this article when we get the exact date for you.

    Not sure why but I don't have problems with proximity sensor. It works perfect each time.

    What about jailbreaking for iOS 4.1? Will Apple actually allow users to jailbreak their phones? It's 100% legal and it adds another audience to the iPhone's because that enables people to come up with new working programs and doesn't limit users to Apples limited developing team. Their are more ideas than what Apple has a budget for and that adds even more attraction when a phone can be more universal for users.

      To add to you. Here is apple look and quote from our team. "Apple's goal has always been to insure that our customers have a great experience with their iPhone and we know that jailbreaking can severely degrade the experience. As we've said before, the vast majority of customers do not jailbreak their iPhones as this can violate the warranty and can cause the iPhone to become unstable and not work reliably."

      So you can do it but it will void your warranty in a simple term. Also no worries if you restore it they have a program that lets us see all updates and firmware added on the device since day one. They are dated as well. So good luck! That is what I learned the hard way. 🙁

    Yea i always mute calls with my ear or like im halfway through a call and i want to do something like put it on speaker, when i move it away from my face im at like the bottom of my contact list. not sure how i managed to press the home button the scroll with my face but i have very initmate phone calls :P.
    anyway good to know that its fixed, cant wait to upgrade then jailbreak 🙂

    Well, this one would be even better if it will be compatible to other old iDevice, but I guess it would be impossible. iOS 4.1 New Impressions

    I couldn’t careless about the proximity sensor, how about fixing the things they screwed up that worked BEFORE the update like the Bluetooth issues and how my 3G phone is so slow it might as well be bricked.

  • Sherif I

    @Steve : so true 🙂

  • Emma

    I agree with Steve. I love my iPhone 4 but can't tell you how irritating it is to accidentally have my face mute my call, call another person while I'm on the phone, or even end the call because my screen turned it. It's ridiculous!

  • Steve W

    Awesome – the proximity sensor is my ONLY gripe with iPhone 4 since day one.
