Every iPhone release is no less than a celebration and Apple fans from all over the world made sure to make this a befitting event this release date on the 14th of October, 2011 in honor of Steve Jobs, who passed away just a week earlier.
Fans lined up Apple stores for more than 36 hours and even Apple's co-founder, the otherwise low-profile Steve Wozniak was seen first in line at the Apple store in Los Gatos, California. The mood was such as if everyone wanted to have a piece of Steve Jobs last technological upgrade of the iPhone as a souvenir. It is strongly anticipated that Apple iPhone 4S may hit weekend sales of 4 Million.
Fully-loaded Apple iPhone 4S - Stirring a Revolution!
Although most upgrades in the newest version of Apple iPhone 4S is more subtle than the iPhone 4 and the phones even look identical; the iPhone 4S features a faster processor, a new 8-megapixel camera and innovative voice control system Siri.
Faster processor: The iPhone 4S has a faster, dual-core processor and to spice up demand, the AT&T version, a cellular antenna that can access Internet data up to 14.4 megabits per second - twice faster than the iPhone 4.
Upgraded Camera: This rear facing 8 megapixels camera built around a backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor in the new iPhone 4S is one of the prime attractions. This upgrade from the prior 5 megapixels iPhone 4 will allow you to take bigger, finer grained still pictures and videos in 1080p resolution, rather than the usual 720p. Moreover, the new camera is much faster than the earlier ones and allows you to take photos in rapid succession either with flash 'on or off' options.
Amazing Siri: Undoubtedly, the USP of the iPhone 4S model and an amazing feature that instantly makes you fall in love with it. Siri is a user-friendly voice control system, which can be activated by just pressing the iPhone home button. You just need to give voice commands over the phone - Siri listens to you and does the job for you - like sending text messages, scheduling events, setting reminders, making online searches,stock market updates, weather forecasts, give directions and even make calls by just mentioning names from your Contacts.
Siri is presently available only in 3 languages - English, French and German. However, Siri is a beta product and Apple Inc. assures its millions of fans worldwide to add more languages to it in the near future.
We will reveal more about it in the coming days as we 'demystify' Siri. Until then, do let us know what you think about the new iPhone 4S.
