Apple has just released the first beta version of iOS 4.1 (build 8B5080c) and iOS SDK 4.1 for developers of its iPhone Developer Program.
Apple had released a public statement in response to the widely publicized iPhone 4 reception problem two weeks back to confirm that they’re incorrectly displaying the signal strength, which will be fixed with a software update that will provide users a much better indication of the reception that they are getting in a given area.
We’re not sure if Apple has released iOS 4.1 to fix the signal strength display issue.
We were expecting Apple to release a minor update (iOS 4.0.1) to address the iPhone 4 reception problem as it is turning out to be a PR nightmare for Apple.
We will let you know if the first beta version of iPhone OS 4.1 and SDK reveals any interesting new features.
iH8sn0w has issued the following warning to users who want jailbreak and unlock their iPhone:
ALL JAILBREAKERS AND ESPECIALLY UNLOCKERS SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM iOS4.1 Beta UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
Thanks John for the tip!
