Earlier this morning, we headed out to the Apple Store on Stockton Street in downtown San Francisco to check out all the hubbub surrounding the iPhone 4. With the reports from Twitter and Facebook that the lines were gargantuan, we had to check it out for ourselves. When we got to the store an hour before launch, the line extended around the block, all the way to the street that is actually parallel to that of the Apple Store. Hopefully, the faithful patrons that were waiting in the cold, frigid, San Francisco summer weather won't go home empty handed.

Although it’s not widely publicized, one advantage to having an AT&T FamilyTalk Plan is that you can use another line’s eligibility to upgrade your own handset. How this works is fairly straightforward, but the release of the iPhone 4 has introduced a few new wrinkles that you might want to be aware of before you take the plunge.
After being introduced during his keynote address at WWDC 2010 earlier this month, Apple CEO Steve Jobs quipped that iMovie for iPhone will be available alongside the iPhone 4 “if we approve it.” And approve it they did -- iMovie is ready to rock your new iPhone 4.
There's nothing we like here at the Mac|Life office than good old fashioned product launch. Since we can't be everywhere at once and we enjoy seeing the look of joy in the eyes of our readers, we've posted a slideshow of iPhone launch pics from around the universe.
Many people are queuing up around the country for the launch of the iPhone 4 (or have already received their device), but Engadget is reporting some saddening news. The tech blog, which got an iPhone 4 review unit, said today that the device has developed scratches on the back panel. Of course, the new iPhone does have glass on both the front and the back of the device, but is it as strong as Steve promised in the keynote?
What a crazy couple of weeks it’s been for the iPhone 4. No sooner has the device been officially announced by Apple, but would-be owners trip over themselves (and AT&T’s servers) to be the first to pre-order, only to have a few handsets arrive a couple of days early. One of those has fallen into the hands of iFixit, who has completed an early teardown of America’s new mobile darling.
It goes without saying that the iPhone 4’s A4 processor smokes the previous iPhone 3GS, but those expecting a speed jump equal to the iPad might be disappointed, based on some new benchmarks run with one of the early arrival handsets.
