iOS 4.1 Beta And iOS SDK 4.1 Released To Developers

iOS 4.1 Beta

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.

It is not clear what’s new or has changed in the new version of iOS. iOS 4.1 Beta 1 is available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 3rd and 2nd generation.

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.
