Apple have released the eagerly awaited update to the iPhone 4, but it isn't the iPhone 5 that many were expecting or indeed hoping for. Announced yesterday was the iPhone 4S, with Apples dual-core A5 chip, new 8 megapixel camera sensor, f/2.4 lens and full 1080p HD video recording. The new features in the camera and photo apps will give you instant access to the camera from the lock screen. Other improvements include increased sensitivity, sharpness and an increased ability to capture video in low light conditions.
Apple also confirmed that the previously announced iOS 5 operating system, with over 200 new features will become available on Wednesday 12th October 2011, as well as their new iCloud service that will work with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC to automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and push it to all your devices. iOS 5 will be available as a free update for iPhone 4, iPad and iPod users.
iPhone 4S also introduces Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking. Siri understands context allowing you to speak naturally when you ask it questions, for example, if you ask “Will I need an umbrella this weekend?” it understands you are looking for a weather forecast. Siri helps you make calls, send text messages or email, schedule meetings and reminders, make notes, search the Internet, find local businesses, get directions and more. You can also get answers, find facts and even perform complex calculations just by asking.
The new operating system includes built-in Twitter integration and iMessage, so you can instantly share your photos via Twitter directly from the Photos app and send photos via iMessage to individuals or groups.
iPhone 4S has the same thin glass and stainless steel design while being completely redesigned on the inside. Apple's dual-core A5 chip delivers up to twice the processing power and up to seven times faster graphics than iPhone 4, all while maintaining incredible battery life, now up to 8 hours of 3G talk time.
Improving on the innovative stainless steel external, dual-antenna design of iPhone 4, iPhone 4S is the first phone to intelligently switch between two antennas to send and receive. iPhone 4S now supports twice the download speed with HSDPA of up to 14.4 Mbps and iPhone 4S is a world phone, so both CDMA and GSM customers can now roam internationally on GSM networks.
iPhone 4S will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the UK on Friday, October 14. Siri will be available in beta on iPhone 4S in English (localised for US, UK and Australia), French and German. iOS 5 software will be available on October 12 as a free software update via iTunes 10.5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch customers.
iPhone 4S will roll out worldwide to 22 more countries by the end of October including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
