Apple iPhone users may wish to upgrade to the manufacturer's latest system

The release of the new Apple operating system could be good news for those planning to recycle a mobile and invest in the latest iPhone.

Flora Graham, reviewing the platform for CNET UK, says it will help to speed up even the older versions of the revolutionary device.

She admits the iPhone 3G does have a few "speed troubles", but these are largely solved by the introduction of the latest system.

Other advantages of switching to Apple iOS 4.2.1 include its provision of multitasking features, as well as a free Find my iPhone function.

"If you've got an iPhone 3G or 3GS and you've found your phone slow since upgrading to iOS 4.0, you should definitely snag this update as soon as you can," Ms Graham writes.

Apple's latest incarnation of its flagship model is the iPhone 4, which was released in the UK, US, Germany, France and Japan in June.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If you want to be ahead of the crowd, make sure you upgrade to this operating system as soon as you can. If you need to upgrade your handset to a smartphone, why not trade-in your old phone for cash?"
