    Apple announces the iPhone 4S

    Apple has announced the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 4S. Although externally it appears identical to the iPhone 4, internally it's seen many changes. It includes the same dual-core A5 processor that debuted in the iPad 2. Its graphics processor, which is also dual-core, provides up to 7 times the graphical performance of the iPhone 4's A4 chip.

    The iPhone 4S has improved battery life over its predecessor, and it now allows for 8 hours 3G talktime, 14 hours 2G talktime, and 6 hours of 3G web browsing.

    The iPhone 4S's wireless system has also been tweaked; the handset will now intelligently switch between antennas for optimal performance. This not only improves signal reliability, it also doubles the theoretical maximum speed from 7.2 Mbps on the iPhone 4 to 14.4 Mbps on the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4S is also now a true "world phone" with integrated chipsets for both GSM and CDMA networks. This will simplify Apple's product lineup and consumer buying decisions, as there will be only one "model" of iPhone 4S that should work on virtually any carrier in the world.

    The iPhone 4S has a much-improved 8 megapixel camera that can shoot up to 3264 x 2448 images. Its backside-illuminated sensor allows it to capture 73 percent more light per pixel than the iPhone 4, and a five-element lens leads to photos that are up to 30 percent sharper than those on the iPhone 4. A new signal processor enables face detection and 26 percent better white balance. The camera also works much faster than on previous models; Apple claims it takes only 1.1 seconds to take the first photo, with subsequent shots having a delay of only half a second. The improved camera also features true 1080p HD video recording and video stabilization, a first for the iPhone.

    Like the iPad 2, the iPhone 4 can now mirror its screen via AirPlay or a cable connected to the dock.

    Perhaps the most anticipated feature of the iPhone 4S is its support for Siri, an "intelligent assistant" that enables recognition of voice queries and commands. We have further information on Siri itself available in a standalone post.

    Apple announces the iPhone 4S originally appeared on TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog on Tue, 04 Oct 2011 14:21:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

    Had a strong feeling this was going to happen. Glad I'm holding out for next year's iPhone offering. That's when things are really going to get good.

    Siri does look pretty cool, though. And how about that camera on the 4s? Very nice.

    The update and the new features seems nice. Not sure if it's a big enough incentive for me to upgrade from my first gen iPhone though. >_<"

    Not sure that I have ever seen that happen... a crawl maybe, but never seen an Apple event bring down their site. Their site has always been pretty stable during these times.

    Someone messed up their load sharing.. at least so it would appear. It's not load driven I would hazard a guess.. but configuration. Since well, just prior to getting this.. the 4s wasn't on their site

    So the 4s has no new updates? I swear I heard many in the keynote.

    If you expected Sprint 4g, that was a rumor. Apple never promised that. If people would just wait for an event and not listen to the Rumor sites, there would be a lot less unhappy people. Just a note and to myself also.

    IOS5 will also rock.
