Apple 4S revolution
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
