Techopedia explains iPhone 4S
The iPhone 4S was announced at the company’s “Let’s Talk iPhone” keynote event. The announcement was seen as something of a disappointment, as many tech enthusiasts were hoping for the announcement of an iPhone 5. However, while the iPhone 4S is not all new and looks much like the iPhone 4, it is considerably more powerful and includes some new features.
One key new feature on the iPhone 4S is the Siri Assistant voice interface. This software takes advantage of the phone’s A5 chip to provide a voice-controlled answer service that users can call upon to find out the weather, time, directions or even to answer a factual question. The 4S also comes in a 64 GB version, representing the first time that Apple has offered a 64 GB iPhone.
The major features of iPhone 4S are as follows:
- Dual-core A5 CPU
- Dual-core graphics
- Download speeds of 14.4Mbps (theoretically)
- 8 megapixel camera
- 1080p video recording with real-time noise reduction and video stabilization
- Voice-controlled Siri Assistant
- Comes in 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB speeds
