Apple has launched the new iOS 4.1 software update, first previewed by CEO Steve Jobs during a music event last week, on iTunes.
The update, which available on iTunes for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2nd Generation or later, brings the highly anticipated Game Center mobile gaming platform to Apple's devices. Game Center is not supported on iPhone 3G devices, however.
According to Apple, Game Center will allow users to send and receive friend requests, invite friends to play multiplayer online games on the platform, view leader boards and Achievements and find out about new games from friends.
The iOS 4.1 software update will also bring High dynamic range (HDR) photos to the iPhone 4, the ability to rent TV programmes on iTunes, support for uploading HD video on YouTube or MobileMe over Wi-Fi and bug fixes for the iPhone 4 proximity sensor issue, iPhone 3G performance and Bluetooth improvements.
