Apple releases iOS 4.1 with Bluetooth, proximity sensor fixes - Page 2

How snappy versus 3.1.3? It surely is snappy versus 4.0. That is expected. It's versus 3.1.3 that the snappy-ness should be compared to.

Just returned from Disney, took many pictures using HDR and the HDR versions were considerably better than the standard. There is a 2 second save delay in HDR mode, I assume because of the additional images it is storing.

Not sure on the jailbreak side, don't jailbreak my phone.

What do you mean by performance increase? Does it still take forever to load, which is a sign of bloatware (at least on my WinXP PC)? Thanks.

It's fixed my issues. Not one mistake on a 40 mins call whereas before it was endless issues. Very happy!

Macworld just published First Look: iOS 4.1

Quote:
Overall, iOS 4.1 is a worthy update that packs both new capabilities as well as improvements to existing features—and all for free, too. With the performance improvements, even iPhone 3G users will find something to like in 4.1. As with most of Apple’s iOS updates, there’s pretty much no reason not to upgrade to the latest version, especially if your device of choice is an iPhone 4 or 3GS.

http://www.macworld.com/article/1539...ook_ios41.html

Somehow, I would take their opinion over many that are posted here.

Update installed for me with no problems. HDR does appear to make a slight difference in photos, but I haven't given it a proper test yet.

I'm excited to report that Bluetooth has been fixed and my Apple headset works again. It actually works better than before 4.0. Previously, when I placed a call with the headset already connected, I had to manually select Bluetooth from the audio sources. Now if I place a call with the headset already connected, it uses it automatically. Super!

IT DID NOT FIX A THING!

My proximity sensor is still putting everyone on hold, mute, and dialing numbers in their ear.

Hmm...downloaded software but said it was corrupted. Trying again.

I am actually angrier now that I have downloaded the update. Sure, my 3g is absolutely faster than it was, but now I truly know just how jacked up 4.0 was for the 3g. HOW could they release something that was so downright terribad for my iPhone?

For those asking if this 4.1 is good for 3g, let me just say, I had to clean myself up after using it for a few. It's like a different phone ... that said this should have NOT happened. Shame on you Apple!

So, you don't like the idea that you were beta testing for a company for a piece of software you got for free?

All done. Loving the HDR.

This iP4's camera capabilities are getting closer to those of my Sony compact for general snaps.

Looking good

What, they finally got their A team off of the stupid Ping project and got them on something important, like fixing their flagship product?

Apple should be ashamed of themselves and their inability to execute anything.

iOS 4.1 seems to be running just fine. HDR works fairly well but haven't really run it through its paces. It seems to improve shadow detail less than some of the 3rd party apps and may be creating HDR photos with slightly more natural looking colors as well. I could give a krap about Game Center though. Just. Don't. Care.

hmmm, can't say he was beta testing. Apple should have just allowed a downgrade from 4.0 for 3G users... but now it's all better for those with 16 month old phones. [so ancient!]

I hope Google is paying you a lot for your time. You seem to be spending quite a lot of energy and effort in the forums here. And not because you're an Apple fan.

But whatever. If you're getting paid, a buck is a buck and it's a free country. If you're not getting paid, you're helping build traffic to one of the premiere pro-Apple web sites.

Keep up the good "work."

I am truly an Apple fan, but I have to comment again how bad they screwed this one up. There are MILLIONS of 3g users out there who have used a product that was broken for 4 months? Take for example Monopoly. I love playing this game on my phone, but it has been almost unplayable since the upgrade. Consistent memory errors, very slow, and crashed about every 4 times playing it. Don't even get me started about trying to play my music through the game. Now since the upgrade the game has NO errors, never crashes (at least not the 5 times I have played since upgrading), and is downright fast.

People will say be happy? No, they should not release software upgrades that literally break the phone. Unacceptable. My hope is they will learn from this gaff. I love apple, but very disappointed I had to use a crappy phone since the upgrade. For those who say I should have gone back are missing the point.

Yeah, I've held off complaining, because of NDA, but the proximity sensor on iPhone4 is still terrible. You move it just a little and the screen comes back on. On the plus side, it's a fun game of roulette to see if I'll figure out why the other person suddenly can't hear me before they hang up. Or, to sometimes discover that I'm in the middle of adding another person to the call.

Hmm, I've been using the GM seed since last week on my iPhone 4 and I haven't once had the proximity sensor issue crop up. It was REALLY bad before and I would either mute/end calls about 4 or five times per day.

Since going to 4.1 GM last week, I haven't had a single issue.

I thought first revisions of hardware / software that leave Apple's doors and into customers' hands were Beta products... I guess I was wrong.

Really annoying. I hope everyone will take the time to go to support.apple.com or bugreport.apple.com to make sure it registers with them that this does not fix the proximity sensor issue.

I'm really frustrated that they would hold this out there for people--I'm sure some people have even bought the phone trusting Apple's word that they'd be fixing the problems.

You really have to question their testing process when a "fix" is released for this high profile issue without actually doing anything to fix the problem. Do the testers possibly all have some sort of bizarre ear shape that actually works with the iPhone 4 sensor?

I'm glad to hear it has helped someone. Maybe it's both a software issue and then also a hardware problem for some?

What about bug fixes, security updates, performance increase and othet tracks across the board? OS updates are about more than new features...

I have had some pretty bad proximity issues in the past so I was very exited about this update.

I have found that the proximity sensor problem is pretty much fixed for me. I did notice though that now the proximity sensor emits a redish light when the applications enables it. I don't know if that happened on 4.0 but I just noticed it after updating.

I will try to take a good picture of it and post it here..

I really don't know, but I'm sorry you're having issues. It was getting to be maddening for me. I'd be talking to someone, then all of a sudden I'd hear on the other line "Hello, hello, you there". And the damn thing would be on mute.

I really wish I had something insightful to add, but all I can say is that my iPhone 4 works (thank goodness).

Lol. Millions of people used a broken device? I don't think so.

If yr device was broken, you should have returned it. Millions of people with a 'broken' device would have made one very large noise in the media.
