Apple today revealed details about the next-generation iPhone, which is called the iPhone 4S. The design of the device is similar to the iPhone 4, but Apple claims that the inside is all new. It will run on Apple's A5 dual-core 1GHz processor, and will include dual-core graphics performance, which Apple says is seven times faster than the previous iPhone. Apple says that despite the increased processing power, the iPhone 4S will be able to reach 8 hours of 3G talk time, 14 hours of 2G talk time, 6 hours of 3G browsing, 9 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 10 hours of video playback, and 40 hours of music playback. Apple has re-worked the antenna design of the device, which it says can intelligently switch between antennas for improved call quality. The iPhone 4S will support HSPA+ at 14.4Mbps down and 5.8Mbps up. It will also include support for CDMA-based 3G networks, making it a world device. It includes an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, backside illuminated CMOS sensor that collects 73% more light, infrared filter, and a lens rating of f2.4. Apple has concentrated on speeding up the performance of the camera, and claims that it can go from sleeping to taking the first shot in 1.1 seconds. It also records video at 1080p HD resolution, and supports macro (close-up) photography. The iPhone 4S comes in black and white. It will cost $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, and $399 for 64GB. The iPhone 4 8GB will be available in black and white for $99. The iPhone 3GS 8GB will be available for free. Pre-orders start on October 7, and the device will be available October 14. It will be available from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless.
