The iPhone 4S features an upgraded Apple dual-core processor which makes tasks and loading times sharper. It offers 7x better performance than the previous iPhone in terms of graphics. Battery life has also been bumped up to 8 hours of 3G talk time. In addition, an 8-megapixel camera has been included with the ability to record in 1080p with image stabilization and face detection.
Apple has also implemented Siri into the iPhone 4S. Siri is a personal voice assistant that includes voice dictation and will also transcribe your voice to text in any text field.
Apple has added a brand new antenna where the phone will switch between two antennas to offer even better call quality. The S in 4S stands for speed. Users will also notice a 3x increase in data speeds since the device is now compatible with HSPA+ 14.4.
