Apple Unveils iPhone 4S; World Phone With Faster A5 Chip, Siri, 8-MP Camera, Faster Download Speeds, HD Video Recording
After months of rumors and speculations, Apple unveiled their hotly anticipated fifth generation iPhone called iPhone 4S at the Let’s Talk iPhone event earlier today.
As the name suggests, iPhone 4S is not a redesigned iPhone as many of us had hoped, it looks like iPhone 4 but comes with a number of new features and improvements.
The Next Web has just revealed some new information about Apple’s new iPhone.
They claim based on information they’ve received from “sources familiar” with the situation, Apple’s new iPhone will come with “more definitive GPS features” thanks to Apple’s faster dual A5 processor that is expected to power the fifth generation iPhone.
This is it folks! Apple’s ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ event should be underway shortly (10:00 AM Pacific Time or 1:00 PM Eastern Time).
Apple is expected to unveil the hotly anticipated next generation iPhone. Apple’s special event is being held at the Town Hall auditorium at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.
The last minute rumors are pouring in, with just over an hour to go for Apple’s Let’s Talk iPhone event. 9 to 5 Mac reports that they’ve received information on the international prices for Apple’s new iPhone.
They also claim that the launch date for the new iPhone will be October 14th, just as we had predicted.
With less than 3 hours to go for Apple’s hugely anticipated iPhone event, Wall Street Journal reports that Apple’s new iPhone won’t run on faster 4G networks.
Yesterday, BGR had reported that according to a “solid source”, Apple will indeed launch a redesigned iPhone 5, but it will be a 4G WiMAX device, which will be exclusively available on Sprint’s network, while carriers like AT&T and Verizon will get a 4G LTE iPhone in the first quarter of 2012.
The only evidence of a redesigned iPhone 5 has been the leaked case designs. We’ve also heard reports that cases based on the case designs are everywhere in China and Chinese counterfeiters seem to be so confident that the case designs are accurate that they’ve already started selling iPhone 5 knockoffs.
Details of a system-wide virtual “Assistant” feature in iOS 5 have been building for some time now despite its inconspicuous absence at this year’s WWDC 2011. Many predict it will be integral to the new iPhone, considering the latter’s bumped hardware specs.
9 to 5 Mac scored an interview with someone close to Siri – a company Apple acquired some time ago – who could shed some insight.
Even though Steve Jobs had resigned as Apple’s CEO, we were hoping that Steve Jobs will introduce the new iPhone, but it appears to be highly unlikely, in fact there has been a lot of speculation as to whether Steve Jobs would be making an appearance at tomorrow’s Keynote.
Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook is expected to be presiding over tomorrow’s event.
Sprint Reportedly Goes All-In For iPhone Deal; To Exclusively Get Redesigned iPhone 5 With 4G WiMAX Support
Wall Street Journal reports that Sprint has agreed to buy 30.5 million iPhones over the next four years from Apple for an average price of $655, which works out to $20 billion.
We’ve heard rumors that have claimed that Sprint – the third largest carrier in the US, will be offering Apple’s fifth generation iPhone, alongside with AT&T and Verizon. Sprint’s recent moves also seem to suggest that Sprint has been gearing up for the iPhone launch.
