Siri can literally help anyone through the day or night, Santa included. Apple’s newest iPhone 4S ad features the jolly old man in red.
9 to 5 Mac is reporting that despite Apple releasing an update to iOS 5, many users are still complaining of battery life issues.
While turning off Location Services, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi should provide temporary relief, it still comes as a massive disappointment for users who were looking for the fix.
Hopefully, Apple will be able to come up with a prompt update that fixes the problem for all users. With new Android phones on the horizon (including a sweet deal on the Motorola Droid Razr at Amazon), iPhone 4S users who value battery life may be inclined to switch over to one of the new Android handsets coming out.
As someone who has had major battery and random restart issues with the HTC Droid Incredible, I’m fairly positive that a brand-new Android handset is not in my immediate future. Luckily, my 4S handset has not suffered from any major battery issues as of late.
Hello iPhone 4S.
Despite no iPhone 5 (and investors not being too pleased), Apple fans were delighted today when the company announced the iPhone 4S in Cupertino. It wasn’t Apple’s most exciting announcement, but despite this, the phone is pretty darn cool. The new features and upgrades certainly make it worth the purchase.
Dan Frommer has an excellent post about why users should not be disappointed, and he’s right. The iPhone 4S will be the best smartphone on the market when released. Aside from a faster processor, updated camera and other spec upgrades, Siri seems to be the biggest addition — a personal assistant controlled by your voice.
While iPhone 4 owners may not be too thrilled about the 4S, any other smartphone owner has to seriously consider dropping a few hundred bucks on one of these. Also, Sprint users must be thrilled to finally get the phone on their network. As for myself, I’ll be preordering one of these babies on October 7th. Anything is better than the HTC Droid Incredible I have now.
