Last month, we reported that Apple was looking into problems that iPhone 3G users were having with their handset digesting iOS 4. The guys in Cupertino must have found something that needs to be fixed as an e-mail from Steve Jobs made it clear that a software upgrade was coming soon. The e-mail came in response to a complaint from a customer who said that his iPhone 3G was "dog slow" running the new operating system. He said that he was having problems while scrolling, zooming and typing and wanted to find an Apple supported method to convert his phone back to the older OS.
The response from Apple's CEO was brief. While "Software update coming soon," was all that was written, it would seem that Jobs is talking about iOS 4.1 which currently is being tested by developers. The 4.1 betas have apparently shown improvement with their performance running on the iPhone 3G, and that is great news for those who have been experiencing problems with the new OS on their old device.
