The availability of iOS 4 as a free download comes just days ahead of the launch of the first handset to come pre-loaded with the new operating system, the Apple iPhone 4.

Due for release on Thursday (June 24th) the Apple iPhone 4 will include the multi-tasking capabilities and all of the other new functionality associated with iOS 4 direct from the box. The new handset will also be the first Apple smartphone to offer users the option of video calling through the front-facing camera and FaceTime software.

To install the new iOS 4 on existing iPhone 3G and 3GS mobile handsets, and iPod touch devices users must first ensure that they have the recently updated iTunes 9.2 installed on their desktop of laptop computers.
