Apple unveils the iPhone 4S

Apple today unveiled their latest iPhone at their 4 Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino. As its name suggests, the iPhone 4S is an upgrade of the current, highly successful iPhone 4. Externally, both devices are completely identical, on the inside however, the 4S features an upgraded camera, 8 megapixels capable of recording 1080p video, a dual-core 1GHz A5 processor with up to a 7x graphics performance increase (according to Apple), support for both GSM and CDMA networks, 14MB/s download speeds, the same 3.5" Retina Display and 1GB of RAM.

Software wise, the new iPhone comes pre-loaded with iOS 5, which comes with a bunch of new features including Twitter integration, a new notification system and a BBM-like service called iMessage to name a few. However the software highlight of the event came courtesy of the natural voice recognition capabilities of the device, known as Siri (sounds familiar?)

If you're looking to get your hands on the new device, it will be available for pre-order on the 7th of October in both black and white versions, and priced at $199 (16GB), $299 (32GB) and $399 for the 64GB model on 2-year carrier contracts.
