iOS 4 iPhone Update: What is the Release Time?

Today is the day yes June 21 when Apple will release its new iOS 4 software update for the iPhone, the new iPhone 4 smartphone will already have the new operating system pre-installed so no download required.

Everyone across the globe is asking the same question of what the release time is, so when will Apple actually make it live and available to its customers?

There are many discussions from forum threads online like Macrumors for example and iOS 4 release times have been said to happen around 9am Pacific, last year Apple released its iPhone 3 OS update at 10am PCT.

All we say is have your iPhone on the ready and keep checking iTunes 9.2, it will soon let you know when it is ready to download, as soon as you have the new software installed onto your iPhone please let us know how you got on.

If you encounter any problems let us know as well, other readers would love to know what you know so please share. Thanks

    I will probably be staying up through the night in order to download this at the moment it goes live. Hoping they choose an early off beat hour in the morning, but if 9 am is correct, I can wait that out.
