The public seems to be a little underwhelmed at details of the new iPhone 4S from Apple. Huge design changes were expected on this new model but these never materialised meaning it is just some of the internal specification on this model which has altered from last years iPhone 4. Here we examine the differences between the two models.
All the speculation about a brand new chassis and a larger screen has proved false as the iPhone 4S boasts the exact same body as its best selling predecessor. This glass finish however still looks eye catching and it is easy to see why Apple have opted to use this design. Due to some of the internal components changing the new model does weigh a tiny 3 grammes heavier. It is when we look at the internal aspects of this model that we see that there is actually some pretty big differences between the two handsets. Perhaps this is most evident in the processor department where Apple have lifted the A5 chipset from the iPad 2 and fitted it inside this new model. The original model is fitted with a single core ARM-Cortex A8 processor which is clocked at a speed of 1Ghz. This chip is the main component in Apples own A4 chipset which also includes a PowerVR SGX535 graphics processing unit. The new A5 chipset incorporates a dual core ARM Cortex A9 chip which despite being the same 1Ghz speed is twice as fast thanks to the dual cores. The GPU has also been upgraded to the superb PowerVR SGX543MP2 which is seven times faster.

The iPhone 4S will be shipped with the latest version of Apples own operating system, iOS5. Users of the iPhone 4 will be able to update their handset to this platform but one key feature will only be available on the 4S. Siri is Apples new voice activated personal assistant and enables a host of feature to be controlled by your voice. The impressive thing about Siri is that it has an extremely high level of artificial intelligence. A great example of this is when you ask the phone to schedule a forthcoming appointment. The phone will tell you if this clashes with anything else in your calendar and will ask you if you would like to reschedule. Although we have not seen how well this system works in terms of everyday use the demonstrations given by Apple do look very impressive and if the system lives up to this in reality then the 4S will definitely hold the upper hand in terms of functionality.
The iPhone 4S is undoubtedly a better handset than the original iPhone 4 although perhaps not as vastly different as many people were anticipating. The handset offers improved operation speeds and Siri is certainly a major step forward in terms of innovation.
