iOS 4 lands on UK iPhones

If you don't fancy paying out for an all-new iPhone 4 or you simply can't afford to get out of your contract, the launch of iOS 4 should offer up considerable comfort.

If you have an iPhone 3G and 3GS, the firmware upgrade should be offered to you right now for download, offering up multitasking a couple of days ahead of that new iPhone model. Just make sure you have the latest version of iTunes (9.2) on your PC or Mac first.

What you get depends on your current handset. Multitasking, one of the big selling points, isn't available on the older 3G, but with around 100 features or changes, there's certain to be considerable excitement, no matter what model you have.

Headline features include a unified inbox, the option to use folders for organising your apps, the introduction of iBooks via Apple's eReader and social/multiplay gaming. But according to Pocket Lint, the upgrade to these new features is not without its problems, most notably, a problem with photos, which affects the quality when you sync with your computer.

Thankfully that problem can be sorted by 'unchecking' the photos, then resyncing, but we're sure it's not the only teething problem likely to be encountered during the mass upgrade.
