With days passing, Apple’s popularity in the iPhone market is increasing at an enormous speed. The company has revealed an advanced version for iPhone4, called iPhone 4S, at the media event which was held on October 4th at its town-hall auditorium, Cupertino, California and is available for pre-order sales from 7th October. According to an announcement made by AT&T, more than 200,000 iPhone 4s has been sold under the pre-launch duration of 12 hours.
According to the statement “AT&T has seen extraordinary demand for iPhone 4S with more than 200,000 pre-orders in the first 12 hours alone, the most successful iPhone launch we’ve ever had. It’s obvious customers like AT&T’s 4G network, which is the only one that lets their iPhone download twice as fast and talk and surf simultaneously”.
It’s indeed a good news for people as they not have to wait for the launch day of iPhone 4S. But, the main problem – they will not be able to get the iPhone 4S on the launch date – is the expected shipping time that lazes around 1-2 weeks as showing in Apple’s online stores.
However, if anyone wants iPhone 4S on the day of launch then it’s available from 14th October (iPhone 4S launch date) on all Apple’s retail stores. It’s expected that company’ retail store will open around 8:00 am on October 14th.
According to Sprint, “They have completely sold 16GB iPhone 4S but 32GB and 64GB iPhone 4S are still available for preorder”.
It’s been mentioned on Verizon website, that expected shipping time for iPhone 4S is October 21st for 16GB.
iPhone 4S comprises of various interesting features:
- Dual – Core A5 processor.
- 8 Megapixel Camera.
- Improved Battery Life.
- Siri voice assistant.
- Faster Graphics.
- Faster network speeds.
- HD video recording.
iPhone 4S will support both GSM as well as CDMA networks.
On Friday, 14th October, iPhone 4S will be launched in US, Germany, Australia, Canada, France, Japan and UK. In other countries, it may be launched by October last.
One of the most important thing which everyone should know that Apple is also going to release an unlocked version of iPhone 4S for GSM network in November. However, the unlocked version is currently meant only for US customers. The unlocked version will be available in three storage capacities such as 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. 16GB iPhone 4S will be available at $649, 32 GB at $749 and 64 GB at $849. The GSM unlocked version will be available online only at AT&T. Peoples will not be able to employ GSM unlocked version neither at Verizon nor at Sprint.
Let’s hope advanced version should make a new record and take Apple to a new height. We are also expecting to see the early launch of iPhone 4S in many other continents, like South Asia, where Android mobiles are slowly taking a big leap than Apple’s iOS.
