Member of the illustrious iPhone Developer Program? Well, aren’t you special? So special, in fact, that you’re once again being granted access to a highly-coveted iOS build that the unwashed commoners can’t get: yet another beta of iOS 4.1. This time around, it’s beta 3, suggesting that Apple might be getting close to having this thing ready for the mass market; after all, it’s been just a week since beta 2, and Apple tends to accelerate the pace when a release is drawing near. Now, what about that iPad version?

Update: Looks like there’s some bad news for legacy users in this update… namely the fact that Game Center compatibility for second gen iPod touches and the iPhone 3G has been dropped. Thanks for nothing, Apple!

The new iphone OS 4.0 will have over 100 new features like Multitasking, change background and more…..

If you like living on the brutal, life-altering bleeding edge the same way we do, odds are you’ve got iPhone OS 4 beta 3 installed on that 3GS of yours — assuming you have an iPhone 3GS, naturally. That also means that you’ll likely be interested to hear that beta 4 is now out and ready for you to download, install, and not brick your phone if everything goes according to plan, just as long as you’ve got access to an Apple iPhone Developer Program account. Go forth, intrepid readers — and do report back on your exploits, won’t you?
