The iPhone 4S, according to Apple, is supposed to be “the most amazing iPhone yet”. I’m not too sure that it is. Apple unveiled an abundance of new generations of their products, and the iPhone 4S was one of them. I must say, and I’m not sure if I’m talking for myself or on behalf of most Apple fans, when Apple announced that there isn’t to be an iPhone 5 this year, at their “Let’s Talk iPhone” gathering, and instead there’s to be an iPhone 4S,I was quite upset. The 4S doesn’t come with a lot of new features; however, if you consider the Sira voice recognition system and the 1080p HD 8 MP camera a big deal, you might beg to differ.
The iPhone 4S hasn’t changed its looks at all, in contrast its hardware has been completely re-designed.
Apple has upgraded the 4S with a dual-core A5 chip, which delivers up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics. I must say, those are some impressive details.
As always, Apple also brags about its outstanding battery life on the iPhone. I guess we’ll just have to wait until October 14th, the release date of the 4S, to see how long it really lasts. What really impressed me today was the new camera.
8 MP is quite a lot for a phone. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think there’s a phone on the market with a better camera at the moment. I’m quite sure that the runner-up for best camera quality is Blackberry with a 5MP camera. Not only can you take amazing, clear pictures, at the same time you can also quickly edit them by cropping them or adjusting the lighting.
Things like that. Apple have also added quicker access to the camera by adding a button next to the “Slide to Unlock” slider. All in all…. a really neat feature!
iOS 5 will be shipping with the new iPhone 4S as early as October 14th. You can pre-order your 4S on Oct. 7. iOS 5 brings along quite a few cool new features with it, not only is there a new notification center, there’s also a new app called iMessage & Twitter integration. These are the top 3 new features available in iOS 5. I will post a larger, in-depth, review about these in the upcoming days. I’ve had a quick look at all of them…. in short, they all do look quite handy.
Not only does the iPhone 4S ship with a remarkably improved retina display, it also ships with iCloud; Apple’s brand new cloud system. iCloud is by far the easiest way to manage all your “stuff”.iCloud is able to store all your music, photos, apps, contacts, documents, mails, and calendars, and then wirelessly push them to all your devices. All of this requires you to do absolutely nothing at all, iCloud is great because every thing and every task it performs is automatic.
