Apple iOS4 released today

on June 21, 2010 | Apple iPhone | Comments (0)

The latest version of the iPhone Operating System (OS), iOS4, is due for release for iPhone and iPod Touch later today for Australia (and users globally) as the US comes online.

The iOS4 upgrade is the probably the most significant update made to the iPhone Operating System. It is really jam packed with new features including the one we have all been waiting for – multitasking.

To see if you can download the update in your area, just connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes 9.2 and press the ‘Check for update’ button under the iPhone tab.

iOS4 adds multitasking to newer iPhones and iPod Touches, lets you change your background wallpaper and claims to offer 100 other feature improvements in total.

Good work from Apple i say.

Last time Apple had such a big update their application servers crumbled under the enormous load they felt when everyone jumped on their site at once.

Will we have a repeat performance or will Apple be better prepared this time?

Only one way to find out!

What do you think of the latest update?

I think i may hold out a few days to just make sure no ‘inconveniences’ crop up.
