    iPhone (original)
    Released June 29, 2007
    iOS 1.0.1: Tuesday July 31, 2007
    32 days, 22 weekdays

    iPhone 3G
    Released July 11, 2008
    iOS 2.0.1: Monday August 4, 2008
    24 days, 16 weekdays

    iPhone 3GS
    Released June 19, 2009
    iOS 3.0.1: Friday Jul 31, 2009 (SMS security flaw)
    42 days, 30 weekdays

    Average the numbers above and you get 33 calendar days from hardware release to first software update. If history is a guide (and there are many reasons why it might not be), these numbers suggest Wednesday July 22, give or take a week or two.

    Therefore I'll be surprised if we see iOS 4.0.1 this week, but mad if we don't see it by the first week of August.

    Makes sense to me. Hopefully they do it soon so a jailbreak can be released with the update. :)

    That's the real reason I'm looking forward to the update too!

    I tried to use similar logic to prove the date of the iOS4 event, and they still managed to be pretty late. They also have a whole lot of bugs to smash!
