Apple announced today during their live stream broadcast about the upcoming iOS 4.1 for the iPhone and iPod touch.

The new improvements include fixes for a lot of security issues, bugs and adds a lot of additional features. iOS 4.1 will include GameCenter, which allows you and your friends to play games together by sending invites, which notify you in-game.
