Posted: Updated:

Apple's iOS 4--its update for iPhone and iPod Touch operating systems--will be released today, June 21.

iOS 4 will bring different features to different users, depending on what Apple device they use. Only 3GS iPhones, 3G iPhones and newer iPod Touches will be eligible for the iOS 4 upgrade.

Apple Insider
says of the iOS 4 update:

Some of these features are limited to new hardware in the latest iPhone 4 (such as FaceTime video calling), while others are only available on last year's iPhone 3GS and third generation iPod touch (including multitasking).

Here's how to update your iPhone or iPod Touch, via CNET:

To get the update, simply connect your device to iTunes and follow the steps. It's free for both iPhone and iPod Touch users--in the past the latter group users had to pay a small fee--though iOS 4 is not compatible with first generation models of either device. Also, remember that the iPhone 3G will not support the new multitasking feature.
