IOS 4.1 fixes proximity sensor issue on iPhone 4

When Apple announced its latest lineup of iPod music players last week, Apple noted that iOS 4.1 would be released within the coming week. Staying true to its word, Apple today released the update which addresses a number of problems afflicting iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G users.

First up, iOS 4.1 fixes the proximity sensor on the iPhone 4. For those unfamiliar with the problem, numerous iPhone 4 users would find themselves muting or ending calls due to the phone's screen turning back on when held up to his or her ear. The proximity sensor issue appears to have been even more widespread that the infamous antenna problem.

A second issue corrected with the iOS 4.1 update for iPhone 4 users includes improved Bluetooth connectivity. Some users were being prematurely disconnected from their Bluetooth headsets due to a conflict with Wi-Fi resources.

Finally, iPhone 3G users will find some relief with speed improvements courtesy of iOS 4.1. AnandTech performed ran benchmarks comparing iOS 4.1 to iOS 4.0.2 and iOS 3.1.3 -- thankfully, the update appears to solve many of the performance-related problems.

IOS 4.1 also brings an number of new features including HDR photo capture (iPhone 4 only), Game Center, HD video uploads via Wi-FI, TV show rentals, AVRCP Bluetooth playback, and Ping support in iTunes.

As long as the iPhone is an AT&T exclusive, I will never, but NEVER, get it.

And I may not even consider it if and when Verizon gets a hold of it. I'll get a Samsung Fascinate first, and a lot of the reviews over the past week are giving me pause about it.

I do, however, have a 64GB 3G iTouch, and I hope this resolves a couple issues with a few apps. There is no reason a simple Craigslist app should cause slowdown. And then there's the entire syncing issue with Intel laptop chipsets...

The only thing that throws off your inclination is the fact that they call me on my Samsung Captivate (on At&t).

:D I have great service in my city. Better than the other carriers in fact.
