New iPhone update to improve quality of videos and pictures

Owners of iPhones will be getting a software update that allows the uploading of high-definition video over wi-fi, it was announced today.

Apple chief executive Steve Jobs also said 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 that runs Apple’s iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

Mr Jobs appeared at a media event in a crewneck top, rather than his trademark mock turtleneck.

The event is likely to lead to updated iPods, though the company has not confirmed any details.

Apple watchers have speculated that the company could show off a new version of its Apple TV set-top box or add more music-discovery features to its iTunes music software.
