iPhone iOS4 Will Be Available To Download Later Today and for those in Ireland and UK who are getting the error message below well you just have to wait a bit longer.
The latest version of Apple’s iPhone OS, iOS 4, will be available later today but it is erleased only when the USA get out of bed! As you probably know (unless you have being living under a rock) iOS 4 is the next major Operating System software upgrade for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The new iOS4 adds a range of new extra features to the iPhone / iTouch.
99% of the features will work on the iPhone 3GS, and some of them will work on the iPhone 3G / iTouch. Some of the new features include multitasking, camera zoom, folders, improved email, and iBooks just like the version on the iPad.
Multitasking will be the most interesting feature in the new iOS 4. Once iOS4 is installed on your 3Gs you will be able to switch between running iPhone apps without having to shut each app down … according to Apple this feature won’t slow down the iPhone or use extra battery.
The most probable time for the release will be either 5pm or 6pm Irish time (GMT) but no news yet means that they might hang on until they are happy to release – i.e. could be 8pm or 9pm if they decide to have their morning cappuccino at Apple HQ first !!
