  • Steve Jobs Dishes on iOS 4.1. and Cool New Updates



    As Steve Jobs took the stage to a rousing ovation at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California and the Apple Store went down, we all knew something was coming. And we were right. Kicking off Apple's annual September Event, CEO Steve Jobs gave a retail update, praising the Paris Apple store, a second outlet in China, and, finally, the newest store in London. Apple now boasts some 300 retail stores in ten different countries, with Spain on tap for becoming the 11th nation to get an Apple Store.

    Self-congratulations and iOS glorification aside, Steve Jobs soon got down to business. What's new to Apple? iOS 4.1, the next release of iOS. First, bugs have been fixed, proximity, bluetooth, iPhone 3G bugs. Second, Apple is adding the new HDR (high dynamic range) standard to photos, an embellishment that takes iPhone photo quality to a while new level. Also built into iOS 4.1 is Game Center, which is all about multiplayer games. "If you don't have friends," Jobs says, "it will match you with people."

    Jobs foreshadowed from Epic Games a new game that will soon debut using Game Center. Exclusively for Apple mobile devices, get ready for "Project Sword," an action packed role playing game that really looks sweet. With intricate 3D imagery and amazing gameplay and social integration, this could very well become one of the hottest games available across any mobile phone or gaming device. It'll be out on the iPhone, iPod, and iPad this holiday season.

    iOS 4.1 will be a free download available next week. Jobs, however, also gave a sneak peak at 4.2, which will be out in November, also available for free. "It's all about iPad," says Jobs. "It brings everything to iPad from 4.1 to the iPad." Look for everything from wireless printing to the brand new Airplay.

      There have already been at least five exploits found in 4.1 (I'm sure I read that somewhere). I can't see them holding off releasing a jailbreak for a major OS upgrade... It isn't like Apple releasing a security patch (4.0.2) and the Dev Team not wanting to release the jailbreak for it for fear of tipping their hand too early with an imminent major upgrade looming.

      the thing is if they wait for 4.2 to jailbreak then they will just come out with 4.2.1 so why wait

      Odds are good the dev team probably knows at this point if they can utilize an old exploit to jailbreak 4.1.

      It's true that any jailbreak will likely be patched with an update, say 4.1.1 or 4.2.1, etc. But with 4.2 having all the fixes 4.1 has but also having updates for the iPad it's possible they could wait two months for 4.2 to be released as it would be backwards compatible with 4.1. Even if Apple did release 4.2.1 (like 4.0.2 was just a patch update) since it doesn't add any features, only those with brand new devices would be out of luck while the majority of iPhone & iPad owners would be perfectly fine with 4.2. Just like if they release 4.1 and 4.1.1 immediately comes out from Apple, they will just say don't update to 4.1.1 as we are not releasing a new jailbreak until 4.2. Obviously, just a guess, I'd rather they not wait two months as well, since I got a new device with 4.0.2 on it.

      the Jbers are probably just waiting to see what iTunes 10 does to the jailbreak. Or else theyre drunk. Either way we'll hear soon

      I'm guessing a jb for 4.1 will be out in about two weeks. Dev team wants Bluetooth and proximity fixes too!

I have to wait until the other person hangs up and continuously press the sleep button...
