While Apple CEO Steve Jobs said on Wednesday that iOS 4.1 would be coming to iPhones and iPod touches this coming week, he didn't give a date. It seems the Apple U.K. site
's webmaster has put up some different info that in the U.S., with their site giving an exact date: Sept. 8.
The U.S. site continues to say "Coming Soon," but we'll assume that rather than making two mistakes (posting a date, and posting a wrong date) that the Sept. 8 is correct. It also makes sense since the new iPod touches will ship on Sept. 8, with iOS 4.1 pre-installed.
At any rate, since Jobs sent "next week," and considering Monday is Labor Day, we really only had 4 days to pick from, anyway.
