No HDR photography for iPhone 3G/iPhone 3GS?

While we won't know for absolutely certain until the final release version of iOS 4.1 for iPhone arrives sometime this week (maybe Wednesday), it's looking like HDR photography will be exclusive to iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4, and not available for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users.

iOS 4.1 review

Complete review of Apple's iOS 4.1 software update for iPhone and iPod touch

iOS 4.1 is now available from Apple for iPhone and iPod touch. A relative small update to iOS 4 that fixes some important bugs, adds a few new features, and powers the all new iPod touch 4.

Steve Jobs announced the headlines during Apple's 2010 special music event and they include Game Center social gaming network, TV rentals, iTunes Ping social music network, HDR photography, and HD video uploads. (Yes, Apple is introducing not one but two new social networks.)

More importantly for some, proximity sensor misfires, Bluetooth woes, and the abysmal performance on iPhone 3G appear to be fixed.

We'll be covering all of that and more below. For anything and everything that hasn't changed, check out our massive iOS 4 walkthrough because we won't be repeating all that here

Note: this walkthrough is based on the GM (gold master) version of iOS 4.1. We'll continue to add to and improve it as needed, and update once iOS 4.1 release version hits, probably on Wednesday September 8.

iPod touch 4 beginning to ship

TiPb readers are letting us know that they're receiving shipment notifications from Apple for iPod touch 4. Made available for pre-order last Wednesday following Apple's 2010 special music event, iPod touch 4 brings Retina Display (though perhaps without the same IPS panel?), FaceTime, 720p video (though only .7mp stills), and other iPhone 4-like features to its non-phone counterpart.

Have you gotten your shipment notification yet? Let us know which model you ordered, when you placed your order, and what date you expect it and we'll keep track in comments.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]

Video call debugger running on iPad?

9to5mac got their hands on what appears to be an extreme close up of a video call debugger running on an iPad. Now that iPod touch has gotten a camera and FaceTime, can iPad really be far behind?

Apple special event in late January to announce iPad 2, followed by video camera capable iPad in March/April? But will it have both front-facing and rear camera, or just one or the other?

iTunes Ping- Where is the Facebook Integration?

Facebook connect for Ping made a very brief appearance during Steve Jobs' iTunes 10 demo and some early users were able to catch (and use) it to find friends on Apple's new social music network. However, a short time later the Facebook integration was missing. What happened?

Apple announces 1 million Ping users in 48 hours

48 hours after Apple introduced Ping, their new social music network, they've announced 1 million users already signed on.

“One-third of the people who have downloaded iTunes 10 have joined Ping,“ said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services. “As many more people download iTunes 10 in the coming weeks, we expect the Ping community to continue growing.“

Ping lets you follow your favorite artists such as Lady Gaga, Coldplay, U2, Jack Johnson, Yo-Yo Ma and more, to see what they’re up to, check out photos and videos they’ve posted, see their tour dates and read comments about other artists and albums they’re listening to. In addition, you can post your thoughts and opinions, your favorite albums and songs, the music you’ve downloaded from iTunes® and the concerts you plan to attend.

Several of us here at TiPb are among them:
