iOS 4.1 Gold Master now available to developers

Apple has begun seeding iOS 4.1 Gold Master to developers, the final step before the general availability release promised for next week.

In addition to fixes for proximity sensors, Bluetooth, and iPhone 3G performance, it includes Game Center, HD photos, HD YouTube uploads, and TV rentals.

If you're a developer, head on over to and start downloading. No doubt the App Store will start taking iOS 4.1 compiled binaries any time now...
