Well I think nearly everyone was expecting the iPhone 5 to be unveiled today, however that was not the case, much to many peoples disappointment.
They have however released a new phone, the iPhone 4S which has many new features to keep us occupied until the new iPhone 5 finally comes out.
The iPhone 4S sports a new processor named the A5, this little beast is a dual-core affair which they use in the iPad 2.
This is great news as the phone will be faster; I hate the waiting when using slow phones. They have said the processor will be up to 2x faster. There will be dual-core graphics which means up to seven times faster graphics.
Another fantastic new feature is the 8 Megapixel camera, you can now shoot 1080p HD videos. Apparently the iPhone 4 is the most popular camera in terms of uploads on the Flickr web site.
The iPhone 4S has two antennas which it can intelligently switch between for the best possible signal both on transmitting and receiving data. The phone is capable of 14.4Mbps download, compared with the iPhone 4 at just 5.8Mbps, that’s a massive improvement.
The 4S has a voice recognition system which is based on Siri software. This is a new intelligent system is able to decipher conversational orders such as ‘remind me to phone the doctors’ The Siri system will know it needs to set the reminder.
The new system also means easy dictation for texts and emails, this will be useful when driving as you can write and send an email or text message with only your voice.
The 4S will be both GSM and CDMA network compatible, this is good news for the travellers among us; it means the 4S will work around the globe.
