iPhone News: Steve Jobs Announces iPhone OS Update Coming in September
      #31167 - 08/21/08 05:31 PM

InfoWorld reports that Steve Jobs has acknowledged problems with some iPhone/iPod touch apps crashing on launch, and that he has officially stated that an OS update in September will correct the issue.

In a way, Steve Jobs had actually already announced that another iPhone update would be coming in the next few weeks or so, because he stated back in June that the "push notification service" under development for iPhone would be available in August. (I'm referring to the technology that Apple has essentially called "It's not multitasking - it's better.")

Several rumors have begun to circulate that Apple may host an event in September that will include these announcements, and probably others as well. If the push notification service is indeed included, then we're probably talking about more than just a bug-fix release this time around - think "iPhone 2.1" rather than "iPhone 2.0.3."

If Apple does, in fact, release a major iPhone update, I'm hoping for the above items plus a clipboard (obviously) and an announcement that NBC is returning to iTunes (which may have to include a sub-announcement that Steve Jobs has started keeping Jeff Zucker in his trunk).
