On Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced a new addition to the iDevice stable: The iPhone 4S. While rumors about the 4S had been swirling for days, they were nowhere near as rampant as those about the fabled the iPhone 5, which wasn't mentioned during Apple's keynote event.
Speculation about the 4S was mainly centered around it being a cheaper version of the iPhone 4, but this proved false on Tuesday. Instead, the iPhone 4 has dropped to $99 for the 8GB version, while the iPhone 4S is featured at higher price points for its three configurations.
Those who expected Apple to announce a completely redesigned iPhone 5 will have to settle for a device that's physically identical to its predecessor. While many may feel disappointed by the iPhone 4S, the new device does boast some marked improvements over the iPhone 4, such as voice control, airplay mirroring and an improved camera.
