iPhone 4S Launches October 14th

Needlessly to say, Apple unveiled its new iPhone 4S at its media event this evening. It’s obtainable for pre-order on October 7th, and will start shipping on October 14th. Availability about the 14th are going to be restricted to the US, Canada, Australia, UK, France, Germany and Japan. 22 additional countries can get the telephone with the 28th, and 70 by simply this end of the season. The 4S will likely be offered on Sprint, AT&T and Verizon networks in america. Not like rumors that indicated an extensive overhaul on the telephone, the 4S can be a predictable progression from your iPhone 4.

It uses a similar Apple A5 SoC as the apple ipad 2 (though, as usual, Apple didn’t reveal its clock speed or maybe the number of on-board RAM) and is also now universally compatible with CDMA and GSM networks (rendering it a "world telephone), but is visually similar to the apple iphone 4 and uses the same 3.5” 640x960 “Retina Display” becasue it is predecessor. It might be accessible in 16GB ($199), 32GB ($299), and 64GB ($399) capacities in both black and white that has a 2-year contract. The apple iphone 4g will stay being an 8GB telephone for $99, as you move the 3GS will also hang around totally free with contract.

Antenna diversity, an element originally introduced inside CDMA iPhone 4, is now standard on all purchases from the iPhone 4S. As we found in our review of the Verizon iphone4, antenna diversity fixes the infamous antenna issue with the iPhone 4's design. The wireless stack has become upgraded to guide HSPA+ 14.4, likely from Qualcomm's MDM6600.

As was widely predicted, the iPhone 4S sports a new 8MP camera sensor having a five element f2.4 lens. The brand new lens looks like it's 30% sharper compared to previous iteration. You subsystem itself supposedly has better color accuracy and a lot more color uniformity. Apple pointed out their custom-designed Image Signal Processor (ISP) around the A5 SoC, however previous versions were also Apple designed. Apple claims 1.1 seconds towards the first photo and 0.5 second shot-to-shot latency for the iPhone 4S. You can shoot 1080p video due towards the ISP upgrades inside the A5 SoC.

Wireless display mirroring via AirPlay is additionally supported within the iPhone 4S.

The new iPhone will debut with iOS 5, which will also be available to users of older devices on October 12. Exclusive to the new iPhone is iOS 5’s Siri voice assistant, which promises to bring new precision and utility to voice commands on the telephone. The iPhone 4S with Siri will probably be competent to understand natural language requests (e.g. "Wake me up tomorrow at 6AM) and act accordingly (e.g. create a security alarm for 6AM tomorrow).
