It’s the new iPhone 4S. It contains a state-of-the-art dual-core Apple A5 processor with up to 7x increased graphics performance from the previous iPhone and 2x the processing speed. It also has HSPA+ speeds of up to 14.4MBps and increased battery life — 8 hours of talk time on 3G. The iPhone 4S also packs a new camera at 8 megapixels (with am amazing aperture of f2.4 and takes photos in 1.1 seconds, with each shot coming faster than the last) and a resolution of 3264×2448, including full HD 1080p video recording, all with better contrast, face detection, temporary noise reduction with video stabilization, and low-light photo-taking. The new iPhone 4S is also a world phone that comes in GSM with CDMA (no separate models, just one model) using a new antenna design the increases speeds and call quality, hopefully. As for appearances, everything remains the same, including a delightful Retina display and a glass exterior.
One major feature as part of the new iPhone 4S is called Siri. Holding down the home button allows you to activate Siri, where you can ask it questions, like what the weather is like. After the command is stated it will immediately launch to the app or action that you requested, or in the weather example, will actually speak to you, telling you that it looks rainy. Another amazing use of Siri is — just about anything. You can speak natural language to the iPhone 4S, like “wake me up at 6AM tomorrow” and it will set the clock as well as telling you it did so. Another amazing example of Siri in action at the “Let’s Talk iPhone” event is Siri reading you messages in the notification center for you.
