There are many reasons why iPhone is the world’s best-selling smartphone. It’s so easy to use, you don’t need a manual. The hardware and software are engineered by Apple to work together perfectly. And iPhone gives you truly long battery life.* Some people settle for any smartphone. But iPhone owners love their iPhone.
Simply ask Siri to help you send messages, set reminders, or search for information. It understands not only what you say but also what you mean, so you can speak naturally. It can even use information from your iPhone-such as your location, contacts, and contact relationships-to provide intelligent, personal assistance.
iPhone 4S is the fastest, most powerful iPhone yet. The A5 chip delivers up to 2x faster performance, so it’s quicker at launching apps, loading pages in Safari, and taking photos. And with up to 7x faster graphics, gameplay is even more amazing.
With a custom lens and a new 8-megapixel sensor, iPhone 4S takes photos unlike any you’ve ever seen from a mobile device. You can also record 1080p HD video with image stabilization.
iOS is not only advanced, it’s also incredibly easy to use. And with over 200 new features, including Notification Center, Reminders, and Twitter integration, iOS 5 makes iPhone even better.
iCloud stores your music, photos, documents, and more, and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Automatic, effortless, and seamless-it just works. iCloud is the easiest way to manage your content, because now you don’t have to.
Browse more than 500,000 apps on the App Store. You’ll find great apps for just about anything: games, social networking, travel, business, news, weather, sports, and more. Search by category or check out the Top Paid and Top Free charts.
The sharpest, most vibrant thing you’ll see on iPhone 4S is everything. The Retina display is the highest-resolution phone screen ever. In fact, the pixel density is so high that the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. But without a doubt, you’ll notice crisp text, sharp graphics, and stunning images. It’s more remarkable than the printed page. And you’ll be completely absorbed. iPHONE 4S TECH SPECS:
