When can we expect iOS 4.0.1 and iOS 4.1?

39

When can we expect iOS 4.0.1 and iOS 4.1?

There's a rumor going around that iOS 4.0.1 and/or iOS 4.1 have been delayed by Apple in order to combat potential Jailbreaks.

Firstly, Apple is secretive to the point that no one outside the iOS team and top brass likely knows when they're planning on releasing any iOS update, ever. There are plenty of bugs like the antenna reception, the proximity sensor, 3G speeds, the camera roll, etc. that need to be fixed before it can even be scheduled. Everyone else is guessing or passing on heresy, including Apple Store employees, carrier reps, and internet aficionados.

Secondly, Apple is almost as cyclical as they are secretive, so while we don't know the precise day iOS 4.0.1 or iOS 4.1 will be released, we know when iOS x.0.1 and iOS x.1 have been released in the past.

Quick app and give-away: GPS Tracks for iPhone

Quick app and give-away: GPS Tracks for iPhone

GPS Tracks is exactly what its name implies, a real-time location tracking application. It takes advantage of iOS 4 multitasking so that you can use other apps while tracking. In addition to tracking your location, it also keeps track of your time and distance and displays everything nicely in a built-in Google map.

Fring 2-way video calling lets iPhone 4 chat with Android, Nokia

Fring has just updated their app to allow iPhone 4 users to chat with Android and Nokia/Symbian S60 users with the appropriate camera hardware. So while FaceTime remains easier and slicker if you're both on iPhone 4 on Wi-Fi, if you want to get some cross-platform chat on, this is your go-to option.

Bluetooth 4.0 gets spec'd, 3.0 still not implemented

Bluetooth 4.0 gets spec'd, 3.0 still not implemented

Bluetooth now has an official specification for version 4.0, currently scheduled for release at the end of the year. Of course Bluetooth 3.0 was released in April 2009 and it hasn't really caught on yet, especially when you consider most mobile devices -- including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, still use Bluetooth 2.1 EDR.

This new 4.0 spec does promise reduced power consumption so maybe Apple (and others) decided to skip the previous generation and upgrade straight to this one? We'll find out next year...

maximo IP-HS5 iMetal isolation headset for iPhone and iPad

maximo IP-HS5 iMetal isolation headset for iPhone and iPad

I took the maximo IP-HS5 iMetal isolation headset with me to WWDC 2010 this year, figuring it was a great way to test them out on both my iPhone and iPad. And it was. Due to "enhanced security" I had to be at the airport hours early, which meant hurrying up and waiting most of that time. Luckily I had a few podcasts and audio books on my iPhone so I queued those up to tied me over.

Now, low-bit rate talking isn't the best indicator of sound quality, but I have found many headsets over the years didn't handle just such low-quality talking very well. Some were never loud enough, many were never clear enough. The maximo ip-hs5 on the other hand did a good job. (In a fair bit of turn-around, I even used them to record both iPhone live! and iPad live! from on location in the hotel).

Sitting behind me on the plane were a pair of pre-schoolers who's parents biological creators lacked the custodial fortitude to ask them to stop kicking the chairs of those of us in front of them or screaming at the top of their lungs. So, I was also able to test out the iMetal's isolation and while I don't think anything under full blown cans could have drowned out the poor boundary deprived kids behind me, they did a great job of muting the overall ruckus.

Twilight star Ashley Greene takes her iPhone for a walk

Twilight star Ashley Greene takes her iPhone for a walk

Twilight star Ashley Greene decided to take her purple-cased iPhone out for a walk. Looks like she's still rocking an iPhone 3GS but given the way she's holding it... well, that might be for the best right now. Still, we hope to see her rocking the iPhone 4 next time, okay Ms. Greene?

For those not familiar, Twilight is the third movie in a series based on the popular Twilight Saga books about the ill-fated love affair between humans, vampires, and ware-wolves. Leanna tried to fill me in -- apparently it's like smartphone editors, iPhone, Android, and webOS, or some such -- but I'm too old and unhip it seems.

(Back in my day vampires didn't sparkle in the sun -- they sizzled and screamed and burst into fiery pyres of evil bits. So while I can't say I don't hope Anne Rice and Joss Whedon aren't eating Twilight's author over a nice pint of B-neg as I type this, I can appreciate a member of the cast using TiPb's signature device.)

One more shot, after the break.
