The iPhone 4 was officially unveiled last night at 6pm our time (10am in the morning in San Francisco at the WWDC). And now, UK operators are coming forward and confirming that they will stock the new smartphone.

Both Vodafone and O2 have announced they will sell the fourth generation of Apple’s iconic mobile phone, which was recently voted the eighth most important invention of all-time in a Tesco Mobile poll.

It will be available on June 24th, so two weeks on Thursday you’ll be able to have the latest Apple technology in your hands, if you so wish.

The iPhone 4 boasts a longer battery life, a higher resolution display, and an improved 5 megapixel camera, with an added second camera on the front for video conferencing.

Running OS 4.0, it will also be capable of multi-tasking, and gamers have something fun to look forward to with a new “six axis” motion control system.

O2, which had the original exclusive on the iPhone, has said that it is going to provide its existing customers who are still under contract a limited special offer, to allow them to upgrade to the iPhone 4.

No details of exactly what the offer is have been made available yet. Similarly, pricing is under wraps, but we should hear in the next week.

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

“With three years’ experience in selling the iPhone we are well placed to support the new device with the best overall experience, including making it easy for new and existing customers to get their hands one.”

Orange is expected to announce that it will carry the smartphone shortly.
