iPhone 4 announced at WWDC: Out in the UK on June 24

Meet the iPhone 4. Not the iPhone 4G, or the iPhone HD, or even the iPhone 4HD, just the iPhone 4.

With it’s glass and stainless steel casing, and ultra slim dimensions – Jobs: “It is the thinnest smartphone on the planet.” – the iPhone 4 is the sexiest iPhone yet. Apple has cleverly hidden various antennas in the steel rim. A svelte new design marks a departure from the last three versions of the iPhone and it’s crammed with new features.

The iPhone 4 features a ‘Retina’ display (960 by 640 pixels), which offers sharper and more detailed pictures. There are two cameras: one on the front for video calling and a 5-megapixel one on the back with an LED photo light and the ability to record HD video (720p at 30fps).

Apple has been working on an iPhone version of iMovie, which will allow you to add transitions and music to your videos, among other things. iBooks has also been remade for the iPhone. You can re-download titles on your iPhone or iPad for free once you’ve purchased it and sync bookmarks.

Battery life has been greatly improved through a larger battery – up to 7 hours talk time on 3G and 300 hours standby – and when it comes to phone calls you can expect a better service. Apple has added two separate mics for noise cancellation.

It will be out in UK from June 24. UK prices have yet to be announced but in the US it costs $199 (£137) for the 16GB model and $299 (£206) for the 32GB one. For more information read our iPhone 4 preview.
