Our Apple iPhone 4S coverage. In one place.
Now that Apple announced the iPhone 4S and the dust has settled, we managed to out quite a bit of coverage around the new Apple pride and joy. But with so much posts and articles, one can easily lose track of everything. That's why we decided to have this post - giving you easy access to all of our iPhone 4S coverage from a single place.

First of all, however, we'd like to quickly recap all the important information about the new iPhone 4S here. So, for those who missed the news, the iPhone 4S will keep the same exact appearance of the iPhone 4, but will feature a number of improvements on the inside. For starters, it will have the dual-core A5 chip, present in the iPad 2. Then, there's the upgraded radio, which will now allow downlink speeds of 14.4 Mbit/s, and uplink speeds of 5.76 Mbit/s. The camera will also get a nice facelift, arriving at the 8MP mark, along with faster performance and a 1080p video recording. The most impressive new feature however seems to be Siri - a deep system-wide integration of voice commands that will act as your digital assistant.

The Apple iPhone 4S release date in the states is October 14, with pre-orders starting October 7. The price, as usual, will be $199 for the 16GB model, and $299 for the 32GB model. However, this year will see a new, 64GB option, for $399. One more thing... starting with the iPhone 4S, Sprint will also be among the blessed carriers, along with AT&T and Verizon. So, there you have it - a new iPhone 4S, available in just a few days. For the full details, however, check our articles, listed below:

seriously what is apple thinking?? i am a fan of android but i was expecting iphone 5 not this iphone 4s.... what a huge huge disappointment... i don[t know y apple does this every year.. iphone 3g then 3gs then 4 then 4s??? look at android phones now a days... for example Samsung Galaxy S 2... 4.52" screen 1.2 or 1.4 ghz(depending on the carrier) dual core processor 24 or 42 mbps, external sd card supporting up to 32 gb plus 16 gb internal storage and much more... i was actually hoping it will be iphone 5 but guess not.. oh well i guess i'm sticking with android forever

Ever since the first IPhone, Apple has been taken their customers for granted.

Its funny how you are already giving a rating to a phone that you have never even used before. This just goes to show the bias in your posts. You are willing to give a full review based on many components you don't know. I can already think of over twenty reasons to get the 4s and wouldn't be surprised if it scores over a 9 as far as ratings goes.

maybe they havent used the iPhone 4S......but they have used the iPhone 4 and really how much different are they??? I mean they could ship out iPhone4's to most of the people and they wouldn't know the freaking difference. What I cant wait for is PA review and if they dont KILL the iPhone for "lack of innovation"..."same look and designs"...."not having that one thing they could say they brought to the table that was new" like they did the Bionic you will KNOW that they are the biggest Apple Fanboy SHEEPLE in existance. Hopefully the reviewer has a SHRED of professionalism and holds the Iphone4s to the same standard as they did the Bionic. This phone doesnt deserve anything above a 7 AT BEST......this was simply a money grab by Crapple

Lol, in England bbc is not praising the iphone 4s but is criticizing it! Could this be it?If the press gives it bad reviews then people won't buy in! The down fall of the iphone? Could it be the bigging of the end?

One can only wish...

Remember, zombies can no longer read or comprehend, so they will ignore any bad reviews, just like the last iPhone and the Consumer Reports review, and continue to buy Apple devices until they become one with their prophet.

According to many "i" witnesses, there was no problem with the last phone or it's antenna...

What a disappointment !!...
A dual-core? And only 1Ghz!
How many months has the android dual-cores on the market? ... And even better and faster than this? (Like good "old" galaxy S2!).
Only this? ... Same design, same screen ... disappointment ... after all who innovates? Android seems to be, with decent sized HD screens, better dual-cores, tons of continuous innovation...better wait for the Nexus Prime or Galaxy S3!
Android is the way!

if you referring Jesus Christ as a person, i have no comment

but if you referring Jesus Christ as a god, i really wonder how can in the modern age, on a tech (mobile phone) site, you spread (believe in such) a fairy tale???

Why you need to be angry?
I was raised in Catholic school, then christian school. I really respect Jesus as a person who have a big vision on human kind. Just like I respect mother teresa, buddha gautama. I don't insult jesus.

And what I said about religion as a fairy tale is also not false. In today american society, academy award for example, shown that none of the actor/actress were a believer because in modern days. Because as we become more knowledgeable the fake in religion were become easily spotted.

I believe if iGod who do the presentation, the iSheep would cheer about 4S

and alas,
the iphone 5 prototype got lost in bar (again)
otherwise, apple would introduce 2 phone today...

Please stop with the processor fiasco. Its really getting tiresome. Its all i ever see on PA's posts. Why dont you spec sickos talk about UI or an awesome app, or even build quality? A "smart phone" is not just about specs.

A the same quality thats notorious for breaking and shattering with the smallest of falls or knocks?! The same build quality were the home menu button gets stuck very often? The same build quality were large numbers of iphones 'break' down after the one year warranty has just expired?!
