“iPhone 4S plus iOS 5 plus iCloud is a breakthrough combination that makes the iPhone 4S the best iPhone ever,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “While our competitors try to imitate iPhone with a checklist of features, only iPhone can deliver these breakthrough innovations that work seamlessly together.”
Features Of iPhone 4S
Same Thin Glass And Stainless Steel Design But Completely Redesigned On The Inside
iPhone 4S has the same beautifully thin glass and stainless steel design that millions of users around the world loved and liked, while being completely redesigned on the inside.
Apple’s dual-core A5 chip delivers up to twice the processing power and up to seven times faster graphics as compared to iPhone 4, all while maintaining incredible battery life of up to 8 hours of 3G talk time.
The iPhone 4′s innovative stainless steel external, dual-antenna design is now much more improved, and iPhone 4S is the first phone that intelligently switches between two antennas to send and receive.
iPhone 4S now supports twice the download speed with HSDPA of up to 14.4 Mbps. It is now a world phone, so both CDMA and GSM users can now roam internationally on GSM networks.
An All New Camera With The Most Advanced Optics
iPhone 4S features an 8 megapixel camera with the most advanced optics of any phone, allowing you ti take high quality photos with more detail than ever. This phone includes a new custom lens, a larger aperture of f/2.4 and an advanced hybrid IR filter that produce brighter, sharper and more accurate images.
Because the iPhone 4S has Apple-designed image signal processor in the A5 dual-core chip for performance and with the features built into iOS 5, makes the camera one of the fastest on any phone. The Camera app launches much faster and the shot to shot capability is twice as fast, so you will never miss another shot.
Now you can instantly access the camera of your iPhone right from the lock screen, and you can also use the volume-up button to quickly snap a photo.
A simple tap locks focus and exposure on one subject; and the new Photos app lets you crop, rotate, enhance and remove red-eye from your photos, and organize it into albums right on your device to share them on the go.
iPhone 4S can now also record video in full 1080p HD resolution. And with the new video image stabilization feature, you can take richer, smoother videos. Other video camera improvements include increased sensitivity, sharpness and an increased ability to capture video in low light conditions.
Instantly Share Your Photos And Videos Via Twitter Or Send It Via iMessage
The new iOS 5 feature includes built-in Twitter integration and iMessage, so you can instantly share your photos via Twitter directly from the Photos app and send photos and videos via iMessage to individuals, groups, family and friends.
With iCloud’s innovative new Photo Stream service, any photo your take on your iPhone is sent to iCloud and then automatically and wirelessly pushed to your iPod touch, iPad, Mac or PC. You can even view your Photo Stream album on your Apple TV.
iOS 5, The World’s Most Advanced Mobile Operating System
iPhone 4S comes with iOS 5, which includes over 200 new features like, Notification Center, an innovative way to easily view and manage notifications in one place without interruption; and iMessage, a new messaging service that allows you to easily send text messages, photos and videos between all iOS 5 users.
iOS 5 will also be available as a free software update for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users allowing them to experience these amazing new features.
Siri, An Intelligent Assistant That Helps You Get Things Done Just By Asking
iPhone 4S also introduces Siri, a whole new way of interacting with your phone using just your voice. You use your voice to send messages or email, schedule meetings and reminders, make phone calls, make notes, search the Internet, find local businesses, get directions and lot more.
Ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk. It understands what you say, knows what you mean, answers your questions, and even talks back, for example, if you ask “Will I need an umbrella this weekend?” it understands that you are looking for a weather forecast.
Siri is also smart about using the personal information you allow it to access, for example, if you tell Siri “Remind me to call Mom when I get home” it can find “Mom” in your address book, or ask Siri “What’s the traffic like around here?” and it can figure out, where “here” is based on your current location.
iCloud, A Breakthrough Set Of Free Cloud Services
The services of iCloud includes iTunes in the Cloud, Photo Stream and Documents in the Cloud, these all work seamlessly with your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Mac or PC to automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and send it to all your devices.
When content changes on one device, all your other devices are updated automatically and wirelessly.
