The iPhone 4 will be available for pre-order from the Apple Online Store June 16, and will begin to ship in the UK on June 24.

Carphone Warehouse has already opened a pre-registration page, and Phones4U has confirmed that they will also be stocking the new iPhone.

The Carphone Warehouse page is carrying the T-Mobile, Orange and Vodafone logos so we're expecting all of those to carry the new device.

Andrew Harrison, Carphone Warehouse's CEO, said they are: "Expecting a stampede of customers to hit our stores as soon as the handset is available.”

O2 have also announced that they will be offering the iPhone 4 on launch day. O2 said it will offer a limited time special upgrade offer for existing customers.

“Apple has once again raised the bar with the iPhone 4,” said Ronan Dunne, UK Chief Executive of O2
