What iOS 4.1 Does For You

Apple will release a new version of iOS 4, adding HDR photo capture, fixing iPhone 3G performance and finally adding Game Center support. The 4.1 update will be available next week for iPhone and iPod Touch (though not all models).

Steve Jobs brought out developers from Epic Games to show off an "Epic Sword", a graphically impressive fantasy slasher they've been working on, and demonstrate how Game Center will work for you.

Although the molasses-slow experience many iPhone 3Gs ran into when they upgraded to iOS4 should be at least improved, we're also glad to see that embarrassing cheek-dialling might be a thing of the past for iPhone 4 owners: Apple is finally tackling that faulty proximity sensor.

The 4.1 update will also debut HDR photo capture, allowing you to combine photos of varying exposure to create amazing composite images.
