iPhone iOS4: Download Release Time – Twitter Updates

By Alan Ng - Jun 21, 2010

Today is an exciting day for iPhone lovers. For those of you with the iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPod Touch, you’ll be able to download the new iOS 4 software today – as long as everything goes smoothly.

Although Apple hasn’t stated an exact release period for when iOS 4 will become available, you will be able to keep yourself updated on the situation using Twitter.

This page here lists all the relevant information regarding iOS 4, with users eager to know when the release time will be. Some people think it may go live at midnight, but I’m expecting the download to become available late afternoon/early evening.

Hopefully Apple will be able to keep their servers up and running during this frantic day. Last year they didn’t cope as we mentioned here, but hopefully by the end of the day, everyone will have iOS 4 running with no problems.

Are you going to be using Twitter throughout the day?

  • It became available to me (UK) at around 6pm last night. I was really excited but then iTunes crashed and bricked my iPhone, I've tried everything, looked at all the forums and the Apple support but it's no good. So be careful, I'm lucky as it's still under warranty and insured but otherwise that could be expensive!
