iPhone 4.0 / iOS4 Release Date: Expected Download Problems

We are just days away from the official release of Apple’s new OS for the iPhone. It was renamed as ‘iOS 4’ and will be available to download for the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch on June 21st.

Will Apple be ready for the launch this time around though? We took a trip down memory lane and reminded ourselves of the huge problems that occured after the release of iPhone 3.0 last Summer.

Most of the problems were due to the iPhone Activation Servers which came under severe pressure when millions of iPhone users were all trying to upgrade to the new OS at the same time. Worse yet, users reported last year that upgrading to the new OS deleted some of their data on their handset, including contacts and text history.

Will users be greeted with the ‘temporary unavailable’ message again when trying to upgrade to iOS 4, or will Apple be better prepared this time around? Hopefully it is the latter. Let us know your thoughts on this. Do you think Apple’s activation servers will run smoothly this time or crumble under pressure?
