Finally, Apple has announced the next generation of the iPhone and guess what? It is not the iPhone 5, it’s an iPhone 4S, exactly same design on the outside but different for the inside. They have managed to use the same processor as the iPad 2, upgraded the camera and added extra few bits and bobs to the phone.
I am very disappointed with Apple, I was expecting an iPhone 5 this year as my contract is up for a renewal in January. Planned to have a nice fresh iPhone, but since it’s a similar design and upgraded performance I wouldn’t bother upgrading it or even buy it. The only thing that attract me is the iOS5, which consists over 200 features and I love that Siri feature. I would love to talk to my iPhone and ask random questions
So is it worth to buy the iPhone 4S?
Apparently the iPhone 4S will cost you at least £499 for 16GB. Alternative you can purchase the iPhone 4 from £429. If you really want a high performance dual core processor phone, then go with iPhone 4S. I would personally go with iPhone 4.
Shall I wait for the next generation?
It is up to you. I currently have an iPhone 4 and I’m happy with my iPhone. iOS5 surely will go smoothly without any issues, regardless if I had that iPhone 4S. But if you have the iPhone 4, it is worth a wait for the iPhone 5 to be release next year.
Remember iPhone 4S is very similar to the iPhone 4, just the processor, camera, battery and wireless are different.
My 3 iDevices are all jailbroken and I love using Cydia to install 3rd party apps and tweaks. As for an original iDevice it cannot install 3rd party apps unless you jailbreak it. I would love to see that Apple can implement more changes to the software such as infinitie apps for categories, theme customization or maybe a queue feature for AppStore. Everytime I scrolled down to 76th app, starts downloading it and installed. Going back to AppStore, and I had to scroll all the way down again. I don’t mind doing that again, but it’s time consuming. I like the way how Cydia manage their packages, confirm the package you want to download, set it queue list and after you have managed to find what you want. Hit confirm to install all packages onto your iDevice.
Let’s hope that Apple will make changes to the software very soon.
I have been super busy lately, study and work at the same time. Man I need a vacation now, I want to see my beautiful mrs, she’s waiting for me now. First I need to save up some cash then I’ll be seeing her again.
I know Apple has released a few gadgets over the past weeks iPod Nano 6th Gen, iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch 4th Gen, what’s next a second generation iPad??? I do think the iPod Nano 6th Gen is a quite a nice design, but I wouldn’t go for it if you already own an iPod Nano. Save it for other gadgets instead. No point getting the iPod Touch 4th Gen if you have the iPhone 4. Unless you don’t have an iPhone 4, you can go ahead and get it. iPhone 4 is worth getting than the iPod Touch 4th Gen.
It is very disappointing that Apple has failed us again, first the iPhone 4 stock were limited, second the antenna signal issue and thirdly they have no white colour iPhones until later this year. I was hoping to have the white iPhone 4, something different for a change. I guess that I will be getting the black one then. Still, the black iPhones are very popular; I would say they look better than white. White iPhones seems girly, suitable for the ladies. I personally own a white iPhone 3GS, just want to have the same colour as my wife. I will be laughing if the white iPhone 4 doesn’t come available later this year as Apple promise.
