The next version of Apple's mobile operating system iOS 4.1 is set to launch next week.

The release, for devices like the iPhone, was confirmed during an Apple press conference last night, hosted by Steve Jobs.

He claimed the new iOS fixed all the bugs found in the last iteration, along with adding high dynamic range photo and HD video upload capabilities, the ability to rent TV programmes and the debut of Games Centre for online multiplayer gaming.

Jobs also confirmed the next version iOS 4.2 would be coming in November this year to bring more functionality to iPads.

Along with smaller functions, such as enabling folders, iOS 4.2 will incorporate wireless printing and streaming of content over Wi-Fi.

Both iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2 will be available as free downloads from iTunes.
