The long awaited iPhone 4S is finally here. It was announced earlier today by Tim Cook because Steve Jobs stepped down earlier this year due to health issues. The design of the new iPhone 4S is the same as last year's iPhone 4S. However, there are some new features.
The new iPhone 4S sports an eight megapixel camera that shoots 1080p video. Also, there are options for tweaking the photo in the Camera app (finally!) without having to use an external application. Here is what the new Camera app in iOS 5 (which releases October 12) will look like:
Another new iPhone 4S feature is Siri. Siri is just like the Genius button an Android phone. You can ask Siri to call or text someone, remind you of an event, or tell you the weather. You can also search for resturaunts and other businesses, or give you directions. It's like a virtual assistant in your pocket.
The third iPhone 4S feature I'd like to mention is iCloud, which will be avaiable on all the new iOS devices, including iPad 2 (released earlier this year) and the new iPod touch (which I will probably talk about in a later post). This basically syncs all you music, photos, and applications between your devices and Mac if you have more than one.
The final feature I am going to mention is the A5 chip. Basically, it makes the phone's graphics smooth and the phone fast.

So, what do you think of the iPhone 4S? Would you get it? Is it an enough of an upgrade from the iPhone 4?
The iPhone 4S will be available for pre-order on October 7, and goes on sale October 14. It will now available on Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. T-Mobile is not accquiring the iPhone at this point.
