iPhone 4S announced, no iPhone 5

Recommended Posts

Possibly the most hotly anticipated iPhone announcement ever, 16 months since the announcement of the iPhone 4 in 2010, Apple has finally announced its successor: the iPhone 4S.


To the surprise of many, no re-designed or visually improved iPhone 5 materialised, and instead the iPhone 4 has been updated and improved with:

  • A5 processor (same as in the iPad 2)
  • 8 megapixel camera
  • GSM & CDMA in one unit
  • Voice recognition through Siri



Arguably Apple is now trailing it's Android counterparts, and potentially won't be releasing another phone for a year now, giving Apple's competitors plenty of time to steal some ground from the market leader. Features currently enjoyed by Android users include:

  • Larger screens
  • NFC (for contactless payments)
  • Thinner handsets
  • microSD expansion
  • Dolby Mobile virtual surround sound



The iPhone 4S will be available to pre-order from this Friday, October 7th, and will be available in black or white and at capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The iPhone 4 will remain in the line-up but at an 8GB capacity. The iPhone 3GS will also be available as a budget option, offered free with a contract.


What do you think of Apple's iPhone 4S? Will you be upgrading or migrating to Android?

Disappointing, where once they lead, now they officially trail, what purpose is there to upgrade to 4GS when one has 4G ??

I too will pass on this one, and wait for next years model....

Sadly a stopgap effort, not interested in a another glass back and front brick. Apple needs to watch it's back there are some other manufacturers notably Samsung making some very nicely designed kit. Still want a new iPhone to replace the 3GS just not this one, time to lift your game Apple

I'm still using an iPhone 3G (got to love 3 year contracts). If I can find a well priced used iPhone 4, I'll stay with Apple. Otherwise Android is my new headset. Android has come a long way and their phones look pretty nice.


I guess Apple no longer innovates and pushes the border on technology. Even the MacBook Air isn't this thinnest anymore.

I'm on Sprint now using an HTC Evo and my upgrade is coming soon, I was looking forward to an Iphone with a screen bigger than 3.5"! This for sure just confirmed that I'm going with the Epic Touch 4g.
