Guess what. The Apple iPhone 5 does not exit. Industry analysts, competitors and consumers alike watched with eager anticipation as they hoped Apple would unveil the next generation of iPhone. They didn’t get what they wanted, but they did get a better iPhone 4.
Introducing the iPhone 4S
Sales of the new Apple iPhone 4S start later this month and will cost $199 plus service contract for the 16 GB model. A 32 GB model sells for $299 plus service contract and a 64 GB model will come with a $399 price tag.
Apple continued its tradition of getting the most out of each of its products by creating an updated iPhone 4 dubbed the iPhone 4S. Equipped with a faster processor, voice control and a better camera, the new iPhone
A new operating system: iOS 5
A new operating system powers the iPhone 4S. This will roll out later this month as a free upgrade for owners of the Apple iPhone 3GS or later models. Called iOS 5, the new version comes with upgraded message notifications, reminders and a new iMessaging service
Also with the iPhone 4S comes a new cloud drive service. Apple will generously allow users to store their music, photographs and videos on their servers. This saves storage space on the iPhone and iPad while allowing centralized access from other devices.
Equipped with a dual-core 1 GHz Apple A5 processor, the iPhone now runs faster than ever. Ready for a new wave of dual-core-aware apps, many iPhone users will eagerly place their order based on this specification alone. Modern life demands a dual-core CPU. Now iPhone users can keep up with iPad 2 users who already enjoy a dual-core system.
8 MP camera
Apple upgraded the iPhone camera for the 4S model. It now boasts 8-megapixel resolution and can record high-definition video. The phone now launches from the Lock screen, so users can spontaneously snap more images.
A new antenna
The Apple iPhone 4S includes a new antenna that finally addresses the embarrassing failures Apple experienced on the launch of the original iPhone 4. Although it should help reception, it also comes with a higher calling. Apple designed the new iPhone 4S to work with both CDMA and GSM networks, meaning that this handset will work around the world.
Available at Sprint
Apple will offer the iPhone 4S (and presumably the iPhone 5 when it comes out next year) through Sprint. As the third-largest American carrier, Sprint has much potential for gaining new and upgraded customers who always wanted an iPhone.
Apple built voice control into the iPhone 4S. Promoted as a virtual personal assistant, the Siri voice recognition feature allows users to speak to their phone to set alarms, send text messages, find the weather and do more with their phone. This helps make the iPhone safer on the road and more convenient in the office.
According to Apple, the iPhone 4S is the best iPhone yet. Consumers hoping to find the Apple iPhone 5 at the Apple meeting today experienced dashed hopes. However, Apple gets to make even more money from its iPhone 4 product and keep people guessing about when the iPhone 5 will appear.
