Apple CEO Steve Jobs has confirmed that a new software update for iOS 4.x will be rolled out soon to fix performance woes on iPhone 3G, running iOS 4.x. He confirmed this in a reply to an email, sent to him by a user who expressed his frustration over the performance of his iPhone 3G on iOS 4, calling it ‘”dog slow”.
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.
Steve Jobs replied:
Software update coming soon.

While he didn’t give any specific version number or release date for the upcoming software update, it is likely that the software update he is referring to in the email is iOS 4.1 which will be released next month at Apple’s Media event, where the next-gen iPod touch, and rumored iTV (Apple TV) announcements will take center-stage.
