Jobs also says that when people take photos with their iPhone, the new software saves three slightly different copies that, when combined, make for a sharper image.
The new software is version 4.1 of the iOS system. It will be available next week for free, initially for Apple Inc.’s iPhone and iPod Touch. The iPad currently runs an older version, though Jobs says an upcoming update will add such features as wireless printing to Apple’s tablet computer.
Jobs appeared at a media event in a crew neck rather than his trademark mock turtleneck.
