Updated: Apple resets Game Center in advance of iOS 4.1 launch

Looks like Apple has just reset Game Center, their new social gaming network, and any developers testing the service on the Gold Master (GM) seed are now greeted with a "create new account" screen. Moreover, all existing Friends are gone, meaning if you intend to keep connected when iOS 4.1 goes live this week, you'll have to send and approve your friend requests all over again.

That is, if Apple doesn't reset it again before launch. But that's what development builds are for, right?

We're talking Apple's special music event, and iOS 4.2 for iPad. Plus gaming gets Unreal, 1 million iTunes users get Ping, being more popular than Linux, Sammy gives us a double whammy, and RIM will take those docs to go. This is iPad live!

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.

Overboard vs Aquapac in iPhone 4 water torture test - Amazing Case [give away]

Overboard vs Aquapac in iPhone 4 water torture test - Amazing Case [give away]

If you had to trust a water-proof case to protect your precious iPhone 4 during a torture test, which would it be -- the Overboard or the Aquapac? That's the challenge they gave me for the latest episode of TiPb's Amazing Case, our hardcore, case vs case tests of strength, durability, and performance.

We figure if either -- or both -- of these water cases could survive being thrown into the deep end and taken through the high-pressure car wash then they can survive a dip in the tub or day at the beach.

Follow on after the jump for the details, and the give-away!

iOS 4.1 review

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

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]

Should Game Center and Ping have been one unified social network?

Instead of introducing two new, separate social networks with Game Center for gaming and Ping for music, should Apple instead have combined them into one unified social network for users?
