iOS 4.1 Download Available
Apple has released iOS 4.1 beta firmware to developers, with SDK updates that incorporate the Game Center features. When it comes out of beta, this will be the first major update to iOS 4.
iOS 4.1 Compatible Devices
Firmware for iOS 4.1 has been issued for iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch 2nd and 3rd gen. Noticeably absent from the firmware lineup is the iPad.
Despite the speculation that the 4.1 release would include iPad support and unify the iOS across devices, it doesn’t look like there is iOS 4 support for iPad quite yet. Perhaps in future beta updates the iPad will join the iOS 4 party.
iOS 4.1 Download
Everyone can now download iOS 4.1, just launch iTunes.
To get the iOS 4.1 beta and SDK, you’ll need to be an Apple iPhone Developer.
* Login to developer.apple.com
* Download the firmware from the download links
Installing the iOS 4.1 beta is the same as any other iOS update. So far the only GUI difference that has been noticed is that the signal bars are more accurate. More to come!
