Apple Announces iPhone 4S For AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has announced the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4S has a dual-core A5 processor. It also has a camera with full 1080p HD resolution video recording. The iPhone 4S will also have Siri built in.
Siri is a way to use your voice to make your device perform certain functions. For example, if you ask Siri whether you will need an umbrella this weekend, it will understand that you are asking about the weather. If you tell Siri to remind you about calling Mom or Dad when you get home, it will find Mom or Dad in your address book. You can also ask Siri a question like “What’s the traffic like around here?” Siri can help you make phone calls and send text messages and e-mail with your voice.
When the iPhone 4S becomes available, it will have iOS 5 built in. iOS 5 has over 200 new features. The phone will also come with iCloud, which will have a set of free cloud services. iCloud includes iTunes in the Cloud, Photo Stream and Documents in the Cloud.
“iPhone 4S plus iOS 5 plus iCloud is a breakthrough combination that makes the iPhone 4S the best iPhone ever,” stated Apple SVP Philip Schiller. “While our competitors try to imitate iPhone with a checklist of features, only iPhone can deliver these breakthrough innovations that work seamlessly together.”
iPhone 4S has an 8 megapixel sensor with a larger f/ 2.4 aperture and an advanced hybrid IR. The Camera app on the phone launches much faster and shot-to-shot capabilities is twice as fast.
One of the new features in iOS5 is Notification Center, a way to view and manage notifications in one place without being interrupted. iMessage is also built in to iOS 5. iMessage is a way to easily send text messages, photos, and videos between all iOS 5 users.
