Apple ships iPhone 3.1 OS – Coffee Shop benefits

The new 3.1 release of the iPhone / iTouch operating system brings with it great news for the coffee shop crowd.

The good news here is that the 3.1 OS seems to (now) realize we are an application and the OS popup login goes away gracefully to let us load the portal and log you in without incident.

Our application had been tested to work on 3.0 however it did in fact end up failing when the Apple login screen popped up to help out.  The pop up screen was not the issue (3.1 it may still pop up).  The issue we seem to think is that if the Apple login screen went away – the wifi was cut off.  This made our program unable to see wifi.  A lot of people have been seeing “no wifi connection – check settings”.  Again 3.1 OS seems to have this fixed.

Please if you have 3.0 you should upgrade to 3.1.  Those functional on 2.x should jump to 3.1 when they are ready.
