Though many people have the impression that the iPhone 4S is an interim project that was only released to set the stage for the transfer of Apple to a new CEO, Tim Cook. In in the wake of the passing of Steve Jobs, the iconic CEO of Apple introduced the iPhone to world, Apple has had a rocky transition including missing 3Q estimates for the first time in years.
However, the technology that Apple puts out on the street does not seem to have taken a hit. By any standard, the iPhone 4S is a positive leap forward in communication technology.
The iPhone again raised the standard for functionality and expandability in the smart phone. The 64 MB version with multithreading, which currently costs $399, allows the user to perform multiple tasks without any hint of lag with the potential to increase the functionality of the phone even more through applications and further updates.
On top of this, the iPhone 4S has introduced a new type of voice technology to the general public. The Siri update that was placed into the iPhone not only recognizes voices, but can also answer questions based on the information procured from applications within the iPhone and in the surrounding environment in real time.
The current iteration of the iPhone was a technological success, and the new sales records that Apple broke in the following weeks only served to validate that.
But as is the nature of the beast, people are waiting, chomping at the bit for the iPhone 5. Many people thought that the iPhone 5 would actually be announced in October, but this has not tamped down expectations in the least that 2012 (the year of release of the iPhone 5) will be any less successful either commercially or technologically or Apple.
Those who bought the iPhone 4S have overwhelmingly been extremely happy with their purchase. And the current iteration of the iPhone will no doubt bring the highest trade-in price when the iPhone 5 comes out.
Maybe the question should not be the choice between the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5, but rather it should be the smartest way to get both.
