iPhone iOS4 (4.0): Firmware download in 24 hours, are you ready?

We do not know the exact time but we do know that iOS 4 for the iPhone and iPod Touch will be available for download tomorrow. We thought this was an ideal time to ask if you were ready for the firmware download? Let us not forget this will be a bigger event than the iPhone 4 Pre-order on Tuesday just gone.

We thought that this is the perfect time to look back at what we know so far about the new mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The most recent post that we wrote was asking what time the download will be? We looked back at the release time last year for iPhone OS 3.0 to get a better idea – thankfully we have had a few comments where they say that they know the actual release time.

We know that the new iOS 4 will be available for the new iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G, but not for the original 2G model. However, we know that not all of the 100 new features will work on the older models – such as multitasking. The reason that all of the features work on the new IPhone 4 is because of the new more powerful processor and double the amount of RAM, which we reported in a recent post.

Last year the iPhone OS 3.0 download update had huge problems – Alan NG wonders if this year will see the same issues, or if things will go smoothly for Apple?

Finally for those who did not know, the new firmware update was originally called iPhone OS 4.0. However, Steve Jobs said that they had to rename it as the mobile OS is now being used for more devices than just the iPhone.

Are you ready?
