iOS 4.1 features: Game Center take 2

iOS 4.1 beta comes with a newly re-designed Game Center preview. Game Center in its original form was present in all the iOS 4 betas but was removed from the general, public release. Previously all dark and blue and ovaly, that remains in the sign-up sections but the new Game Center has a background of billiard-table green and fonts -- well, that make Notes' Marker Felt seem restrained.

WSJ: Apple knew of antenna risk Apple: No we didn't, [and no recall?]

The Wall Street Journal, and specifically reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane, which have both provided information in the past suspected to have come from Apple, have an article up in which they site sources saying Apple new of the risks with their new antenna design -- something Apple denies -- and that there won't be a recall.

Apple Inc. released its newest iPhone despite internal concerns about its antenna reception, and gave wireless carriers far less time to test the phone than is typical, according to people familiar with the matter.

iOS 4 vs. iOS 4.0.1 (and iOS 4.1) signal mapping changes

Anandtech compared the differences in signal mapping between iOS 4 and iOS 4.0.1 (and iOS 4.1) and concluded that Apple has indeed produced a much more reliable system (meaning the old system was less than honestly reporting strength):

As you can see the old way (top) put far too much weight into the 5th bar of signal. Apple's new approach not only splits it up more reasonably between the 4th and 5th bar (still non-linearly keeping you in the 5th bar if possible) but also extends the range of the lower bars.

Whoopi Goldberg destroyed her iPhone 4

The bad press continues to mount for Apple but this time it was not from David Letterman or Top Gear rather the TV show The View. Whoopi Goldberg described how she took out her frustration of the constant poor performance she has had with her iPhone 4. Exactly how did she destroy you ask - opened her car door and smashed the phone onto the ground.

Luckily my iPhone 4 works pretty well, though I'm sure I would be rational enough not to smash my device on the ground.

Video after the break!

iOS 4.0.1 coming today?

iPhoneHellas.gr is claiming they've heard Apple will release iOS 4 later today. They've gotten that kind of stuff right before, and Apple does have an iPhone 4 press conference scheduled for tomorrow, so the timing would make some sense. iOS 4.0.1 being released would mean the changes to the way bars are shown and reported in the developer beta for iOS 4.1 would be public and could be stated as such by Apple.

It would be a couple weeks earlier than Apple's usual end of July/beginning of August iOS x.0.1 update cycle, but likely welcome by those suffering proximity sensor issues and other iOS 4 bugs.

Ping us if you're iTunes catches an update.
