Apple released iOS 4.1 to developers on Wednesday, but if a new rumor is to be believed, they may unleash a 4.0.1 update for everyone as early as today to squash some bugs and most notably, address the signal attenuation issue everyone has been talking about.
AppleInsider is reporting that an iOS 4.0.1 update aimed at the iPhone could be on deck for release as early as today, according to “reliable sources” from the Greek-language iPhone website iPhone Hellas. The report goes further, suggesting that the 4.0.1 update could actually contain the same fixes as the 4.1 beta released to developers on Wednesday, despite the difference in version numbers.
"The final version of 4.1 will be released much later, probably in September, after several beta versions," the website further claims.
Before you scoff at such wild speculation, iPhone Hellas actually has somewhat of a track record with rumors -- in 2008, the website correctly predicted the release of iPhone OS 2.2 just 10 days before it was officially unveiled.
Perhaps the main thing weighing against the iOS 4.0.1 rumor is that Apple has scheduled a press conference for Friday morning to discuss the iPhone 4, so it would seem unlikely that a fix would be released a day early, but we’ll be watching this one closely so stay tuned.
