Apple Releases iOS 4.1 Beta 3 to Developers


Apple today has released another version of iOS 4 to developers. iOS 4.1 Beta 3 has the following changes:

The SDK is build 10M2308 and the firmware is build 8B5097d. There are five distinct downloads, one each for the iPhone 4/3GS/3G and iPod Touch 2G/3G.

This latest build, which comes exactly a week since the last build (normally every two weeks), continues to focus on the proximity sensor issue with the iPhone 4, which was not turning off/on properly when people were handling calls.

Additional changes in beta 3 of iOS 4.1 include:

  • Game Center no longer supported on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G
  • Game Center receives minor fixes
  • Tweaks to the sensitivity of the proximity sensor on iPhone 4
  • FaceTime and Game Center Parental Controls
  • Remote control added for Bluetooth audio

    When they release these betas if they patch the latest jailbreak vulnerability will the beta developers they release it to be able to tell? It would be good to know, the current jailbreak is so great and easy.

  • We will be able to tell by trying it ourselves. Our beta is a full os. Works the same as a public release. Except some things we see in the beta may change during it's course or even be removed when it's released publicly. I'm using 4.1 beta3 currently, and it is very nice, faster too. I'm personally not willing to install the jailbreak, but maybe someone else will. Hope it clears a little up for you 🙂
