iPhone 4S – Full Details About The New Device

On October 5, 2011

In a conference that lasted more than an hour, Apple introduced the iPhone 4S terminal, the fifth device launched by the company from Cupertino.

Many people expect to launch an iPhone 5, so right now many users were extremely disappointed to learn that the iPhone 4S is basically an iPhone 4 with better hardware.

In 2009 Tim Cook presented the exact same thing on stage and this year’s WWDC, things are exactly the same and many had already begun to miss Steve Jobs, the man who was in charge of innovation at Apple. That said, here’s the new iPhone 4S!


Absolutely nothing new to the iPhone 4 unfortunately, everything is identical, even the positions of the buttons, even though 8 megapixel camera that is better is exactly the same size. You saw the iPhone 4, you know how it looks and it is pointless to go into details.

Processor, battery, screen and camera

The iPhone 4 has the same A5 chip as the iPad 2 but of course Apple did not mention if the terminal has all processors clocked at 1 GHz or 800 MHz each, as it does on the iPhone 4. In terms of graphics the chip may have implemented in iPhone 4S PoweVR SGX545 as graphics performance are almost 7 times better while the iPad is 9 times better than the iPhone. Same screen of 3.5 inch display is available with Retina Display of iPhone 4S so from this point of view will not be disappointed even if virtually nothing important has changed.

If we have A5 chip in iPhone 4S we must have a good camera so Apple has implemented an 8 megapixel camera capable of shooting HD at 1080p format. Apart from the advantage of pixel camera, the lighting improved from Apple around the camera have 73% more light when we do photos and the photos are made with 33% faster. The colors are more uniform, the terminal has a higher accuracy and a hybrid infrared filter.

Images recorded by the camera are 30% clear and that’s not all because the face recognition system was improved and finally we have an image stabilization system. Now iPhone 4S terminal can take pictures in just 1.1 seconds if it’s the first catch and just 0.5 seconds for the second picture, which places a significant improvement among the fastest terminal devices that recordes pictures. In terms of video filming, recording in 1080p format with image stabilization is the strength of the new device now remains to be seen how well they do.

Although we have dual-core processor in the iPhone 4S, the battery was slightly improved and when I say this I mean an improvement of about 10% for this device. Unfortunately Apple had no way to introduce more energy and keep the design but the upside is that we have more powerful hardware and more battery.

3G conectivity and the new system of electing the GSM

The new iPhone 4S from Apple has implemented a technology that aims to improve the quality of calls made using our devices. The Apple uses the GSM and CDMA for mobile to change the phone towers so that we would not lose signal no matter what side of the device is covered. What is very interesting because the new implemented features enables us to use our equipment in any normal conditions without fear that at some point will stop. Of course it’s all theoretical for now until we have really a demonstration of the fact that the system works.

iPhone 4S of course brings the possibility to surf the internet with speeds up to 14.4 Mbps and 21 Mbps.

The new iPhone 4S, according to rumors, will work with GSM network and CDMA network as so wherever we are we can use the device. Apple’s decision was made to unite the terminals and production lines but also to enable users to purchase a device that works anywhere, anytime, anyway. Since the launch of iPhone 4 CDMA we were told that the iPhone 4S will have this feature and now it is available.
