Steve Jobs is back answering email, this time he confirmed an iOS 4 update that'll fix the mobile operating system's slow-as-molasses performance on iPhone 3G. Steve didn't explicitly say "iOS 4.1," but it seems highly likely. He also didn't say when users of older iPhones could expect this miraculous update, just "soon."
Here's the email exchange:
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.
Software update coming soon.
