Apple Unveils iOS 4.1 with TV Rentals, HDR Photos

Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced iOS 4.1 at the company’s special media event. The new version of iOS includes support for TV show rentals along with HDR photo support, and the long-promised iOS Game Center.

In addition to TV show rental download support, iOS 4.1 adds the ability to take HDR photos, or a series of photos that are captured at the same time to bracket the best exposures and blend them into a single image

The update also fixes the proximity sensor bug that’s been causing accidental hangups for some iPhone 4 users, adds the ability to upload HD video over Wi-Fi, and brings Apple’s Game Center to the public for gamer social networking.

iOS 4.1 will be released next week as a free download.
