For those of you running iOS 4 on your iPhone 3G, you know it's unbearably slow. So slow, in fact, that you may have followed our guide to downgrade your iOS to get it running back in its original state. Well, Steve Jobs, the man himself, says an update that will fix sluggish performance should arrive soon.
If you're a competitive sort who's still rocking an iPhone 3G or 2G iPod touch, this isn't your morning. Buried amongst the changes of yesterday's latest seeding of iOS 4.1's developer build, was the quiet removal of Game Centre support for the two older Apple mobile devices.
Ever thought about lining up a member of each of the four generations of iPhone and shooting some video of how they compare to each other? Well, a fellow by the name of Chris Pinnock did, and it’s a rather entertaining little gem for iPhone fans.
The magicians from the Dev-Team, who have been jailbreaking and unlocking the iPhone practically from the beginning, have updated some of their tools for iOS 4 within hours of its release. However, there are some caveats.
Seems hard to believe that the iPhone 3G, the belle of the ball only two short years ago, is getting a half-hearted iOS 4 update this time around. Among the missing features are multitasking (and the screen lock that goes with the menu for same) and Bluetooth keyboard support, along with one that’s baffled many: Wallpaper for your home screen.
Third-generation iPod touch and 3GS iPhone users, the iPhone OS 4.0
update will apply entirely for your mobile devices, though we're still
unsure if iPod touch users will have to pay the 10$ upgrade fee. Users
that are still holding on to their 3G and Second-gen iPod touches,
however, will get the update sans multitasking, and perhaps a couple of
other features, too. iPad users could be getting the update for free,
but there's currently no official confirmation.
