As expected, the iOS 4.1 release date is today so fire up iTunes, since everyone can now download iOS 4.1. The update comes in around 300mb and brings a number of new features to iOS including Game Center, Ping Support, various bug improvements (including improving the speed of iPhone 3G and resolving proximity issues).
Download and Update to iOS 4.1 Now
The update procedure is the same as always:
- Plug your iPhone or iPod touch into your computer
- Launch iTunes
- Click on your iPhone then on “Update”
- Let the iOS 4.1 update download and install
Your iPhone or iPod touch will then reboot and you’ll be running the latest version of iOS.
Developers have had access to iOS 4.1 since September 1, but the iPhone and iPod touch operating system update is only now widely available to the rest of the world. The availability of the update couldn’t have come soon enough for iPhone 3G owners, who have been suffering under the miserable performance of iOS 4 on their older and less powerful iPhones.
