Ap­ple 4S rev­o­lu­tion

Enterprise - - Business tools -

Ap­ple de­scribes its iphone 4s as the in­tel­li­gent as­sis­tant that re­sponds to voice com­mands. Of­fer­ing the Siri voice- recog­ni­tion app, the new gad­get has come up­graded with a num­ber of fea­tures and a de­sign to elicit all the ex­cite­ment of users.

The voice fea­ture of iphone 4S al­lows a num­ber of func­tions. Users can set re­minders and ap­point­ments via voice. They are also able to re­spond to and use more hu­man- like, nat­u­ral lan­guage. The voice recog­ni­tion ap­pli­ca­tion sup­ports English, French and Ger­man with other lan­guages are also planned to be added.

The 4S of­fers an 8- megapixel re­vamped cam­era con­tain­ing a back­side- il­lu­mi­nated CMOS sen­sor ( 3264 x 2448 res­o­lu­tion) and also 60 per­cent more pix­els. To much of the user’s con­ve­nience, it snaps pho­tos a third quicker than be­fore. The 4S con­sists of the same pro­ces­sor as the ipad 2 and a dual- core A5 chip.

iphone 4S has brought a list of im­prove­ments to hard­ware. It has in­tro­duced new GSM and CDMA net­work ca­pa­bil­i­ties. The A5 Chip ( the dual- core chip found on the ipad) gives a fairly sig­nif­i­cant boost to speed and the han­dling of mul­ti­task­ing. The gad­get con­tains two an­ten­nas, en­abling the 4S to switch be­tween the two for bet­ter qual­ity and faster data trans­mis­sion. The im­proved hard­ware has also en­abled out­stand­ing bat­tery life of eight hours of talk time on 3G, 14 hours on 2G and con­tin­u­ous 10 hours of video watch­ing.

Si­mul­ta­ne­ously, the 4S soft­ware has also cap­tured the user’s at­ten­tion with imes­sages be­ing sent over 3G and Wi- Fi and phone re­minders work­ing in con­junc­tion to the user’s lo­ca­tion in or­der to re­mind the lo­ca­tion based tasks. Twit­ter is now deeply in­te­grated into the iphone soft­ware for more seam­less func­tion­al­ity.

The Sa­fari browser in the 4S now of­fers a new tab of Reader which opens pages in text- only mode for­mat­ted specif­i­cally for the iphone. Part of this func­tion­al­ity is “Read­ing List” which al­lows the user to save tex­tonly pages for later. This has fi­nally made tabbed brows­ing avail­able on iphones
