This week, a new email from Apple CEO Steve Jobs confirms that a software update will soon be released to address issues with the performance of iOS 4 on iPhone 3G.
In late July, Apple acknowledged that they were “looking into” user reports of the lags with iOS 4 on iPhone 3G.
The latest email from Jobs came in response to feedback sent by a customer who expressed frustration with the performance of iPhone 3G. The feedback specifically noted lags with scrolling, zooming, and typing.
The user email is seen below:
I’ve waited patiently through 4.0.1 and 4.0.2, looking for a fix that will make my phone work again. I’ve read the forums that advise me to jailbreak my phone or use some other method so I can downgrade back to a version of iPhone 3, however I’m not prepared to use a method that is not supported by Apple.
Jobs’ response to the user is below:
Software update coming soon.
Sent from my iPhone
No hints were given as to when the update is coming, but the email response was likely referring to iOS 4.1 which is currently in testing periods with developers.
