iPhone iOS 4.0.1/4.1: Release Date delayed by Apple?

Is it fair to say that the iPhone 4 has encountered it’s fair share of problems since launching last month. Today we are hearing numerous reports that Apple may delay the release of their first firmware update to iOS 4.

According to this report from RedmondPie, this could be due to a number of reasons. We know a firmware update is definitely coming soon, since Apple has already confirmed this thanks to the recent reception problems which is affecting some of you.

However, a couple of tweets from users have indicated that Apple may be postponing the release of an iPhone 4 update due to issues regarding Jailbreak methods for the handset. iOS 4 has already been jailbroken, although a release for the public has not yet been made available for use, and it is likely that Apple are keen to patch up the hole to stop users jailbreaking their devices.

On the other hand, iPhone hackers are holding off releasing the jailbreak methods as they know that if Apple release a firmware update to the iPhone 4, they can quickly alter their software so users can jailbreak on iPhone iOS 4.0.1, or OS 4.1 – whichever is released by Apple.

This tug of war occured with iPhone OS 3.0, and it looks to be happening again. Let us know your thoughts on this situation. Are you currently awaiting an update from Apple?
