Apple have just announced the new iPhone 4S which will go on sale later this month. We were all expecting the announcement of an iPhone 5 but this is one now for the future. It makes sense to upgrade an existing device/format which did have its flaws upon launch…admittedly!
The stand out feature for me is the addition of an upgraded 8MP sensor and the five element lens which offers a 2.4 aperture…impressive!
Having f2.4 is great for using the camera in low light and more importantly offers more creative options. Combined with image stabilization (IS) and 1080p video at 30fps this is a huge step up from the iPhone 4.
As an iPhone 4 owner I don’t think there is an immediate need to upgrade due to speed but the enhanced optics certainly did catch my eye. A few other new functions include Siri and not forgetting the all new iOS5…
