Apple releases iOS 4.1, 4.1 SDK beta

Apple has released its first beta version of iOS 4.1, along with an accompanying software development kit (SDK), to registered iPhone developers. Notably, there is no version of the beta operating system available for the iPad, suggesting that contrary to prior reports, iOS 4.1 will not be a platform-unifying release, but will instead cater to Apple’s pocketable devices exclusively. It is currently unknown what, if any, new features or APIs may be included in the update; it is also unknown whether it is meant to help alleviate initial problems with the iPhone 4, or whether those fixes will come in an incremental 4.0.1 update. Both the new iOS 4.1 SDK and pre-release builds are available now for download by registered iPhone developers from the iPhone Dev Center.

Well, that surely adds confusion to the “unifying” iOS world!
Personally, I wonder why Apple have not released a 3.2.1 update to fine-tune the iPad yet.
Mine’s been solid, but surely, there have been some issues that a dot-release would address by now.
Well, I eagerly await 4.0 for the iPad.  Using 3.2 just seems dopy compared to iOS 4.
