Apple’s newest iPhone, the iPhone 4S was released just days before Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, passed away after losing a battle with Cancer. These unfortunate circumstances, on top of Apple’s world-wide notoriety, have produced a serious PR frenzy. Everywhere you turn in the month of October, Apple is there. Whether it’s the bookstores carrying Steve Jobs Bios or the commercials displaying the iPhone 4S’s newest features, Apple is arguably the most talked-about brand this month (as if they weren’t every month).
Before its release, blogs and news networks were buzzing about the reveal of the newest iPhone, often falsely named the iPhone 5. After it made its grand entrance, and the dust has settled slightly, we can step back and analyze if the iPhone 4S is worth the fuss (and the price.)
With a dual-core A5 chip, the new (and wildly discussed) Siri, an improved 8-megapixel camera, and the addition of iCloud, the iPhone 4S is completely stacked. Apple’s added features increased the value of owning an iPhone. Most especially, the revolutionary software Siri works as a personal assistant, checking the weather, scheduling appointments, sending text messages, and answering questions for you.
The scheduled release of the newest iPhone served to make Steve Jobs a legend in death. His genius was revered in life as well, as he revolutionized the way we communicate with one another. The release of the iPhone 4S was the perfect celebration of his life, and his legend will live on in the technological advancements of the future –which were built on the shoulders of Jobs’ solid foundation.
