Apple's demos of the new iPhone 4S' Siri smart assistant are very impressive, but they're just controlled demos. Stuff.tv got their hands on an iPhone 4S and played quite a bit with in a public place. It's still very impressive.
We hoped Apple had beefed up the RAM in the iPhone 4S, but those hopes may be dashed. Two recent unconfirmed reports suggest the iPhone 4S may ship with 512MB of RAM like the iPhone 4, not 1GB as expected.
Somehow, someone in China's gotten their mitts on an iPhone 4S already. Or so this video claims. The brief vid, dug up by MacRumors, shows off some impressive benchmarking and Siri settings. It seems faster!
Apple has officially announced that they have sold one million iPhone 4S units in 24 hours, which beats down the previous 600,000-unit record set by the iPhone 4. Insane. Phil Schiller is "blown away":
iPhone 4S pre-orders and prices are trickling in for most of the UK networks so it's that time again -- trawl through the networks, compare the costs, do the calculations and finally, hopefully, discover that yes your pay-cheque will cover it.
We already know the iPhone 4S, despite not being an iPhone 5, has a pretty stellar-sounding camera in it. But it's more than just words—the phone's sample photos are absolutely incredible, without any touchups. Our pro photographer agrees.
This didn't take a lot of time. The obligatory Hitler gets angry about the iPhone 4S video is out. My favorite phrase: "I want people to know that I'm better than they are". It's funny because it's true.
You'd think the smart people at Apple might check for this kind of thing in advance, but alas. Japan's giggling in the wake of iPhone 4S' birth, as voice control wizard Siri sounds a lot like shiri—ass. Oops!
Tim Cook's probably still riding high off last night's coke-and-hooker iPhone 4S afterparty, and Samsung's already trying to ruin the fun. Reuters reports the bitter patent ex-girlfriend is seeking a total iPhone 4S sales ban in Italy and France.
Gizmodo and their new UK branch are still excluded from Apple events because of a certain "kerfuffle" last year, which meant we weren't able to bring you hands-on photos and video. Not to worry though, as our new UK sibling TechRadar still graces Apple's good books. For now, anyway.
