CWmike writes "Along with new functionality included with iOS 4.1 — ranging from 'high dynamic range' (HDR) photography that produces more detail in over- and under-exposed areas, to the launch of Apple's Game Center multi-player online network — CEO Steve Jobs promises that the update will fix some of the bugs in iOS 4.0 that users have been complaining about since that version's June 21 debut. Owners of older iPhones, especially 2008's iPhone 3G, are hoping that iOS 4.1 solves the slow-down problems many have experienced since they upgraded this summer. Jobs listed 'iPhone 3G performance bugs' last week when he ticked off the fixes to expect in iOS 4.1. According to Lifehacker.com, which got its hands on an unauthorized version of iOS 4.1, the update outperformed iOS 4.0 in informal tests, although the speed improvements were sometimes minor."
