Apple iPhone 4S unveiled

 

It’s official: Apple’s brand new flagship handset, the iPhone 4S, is here. While confusion was sprinkled throughout the industry on exactly what Apple would announce, most seemed to agree that the iPhone 4S would be the smartphone that Apple ultimately would unveil. The iPhone 4S features an upgraded Apple A5 dual-core processor, it’s twice as fast for CPU tasks, and up to 7x higher than the previous iPhone especially with graphics. Even with the increased performance of the new A5 chip, Apple is stating battery life has increased to 8 hours. In addition, Apple is touting a brand new antenna system where the phone will “intelligently switch between two antennas” to offer up even better call quality. Data speeds are increased by almost 2x, now capable of upwards of 14Mbps. The iPhone 4S is also a worldphone, working on multiple carriers and networks globally. An 8 megapixel camera can been dropped into the new iPhone 4S, offering up 60% more pixels, with a CMOS backside illuminated sensor, offering a staggering 73% more light than the iPhone 4 sensor, and it’s 33% faster. In addition to face detection, a 2-3x increase in photo capture time over competitor’s smartphones, the iPhone 4S will take 1080p HD video with image stabilization in real-time. If that wasn’t enough, Apple is including the ability to use AirPlay Mirroring right on the iPhone 4S in addition to the iPad 2 which already supports this feature. Apple also introduced Siri, a personal voice assistant for your phone.
