Well, it looks like many of the incessant rumors surrounding today’s Apple press event were partially wrong — Apple didn’t unveil the iPhone 5. Instead, Apple revealed the iPhone 4S, which is basically a slightly upgraded version of the iPhone 4.
The design and look of the iPhone 4S are nearly identical to the iPhone 4, without any significant changes. The main updates come in the form of hardware — more specifically, updates to the camera and processor. The new camera can take photos in 8 megapixels (up from 5 on the iPhone 4).
The battery and software of the iPhone 4 have been upgraded in the 4S model as well, allowing for 6 hours of 3G network browsing and nine hours of Wi-Fi browsing.
Apple will begin taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4S on October 7th, so if you’re looking to get your hands on the iPhone 4S on launch day (October 14th), you’ll need to keep checking the Apple store for updates.
