At one of its famous announcement events today, Apple announced the next iPhone, the iPhone 4S. While many expected the company would announce the iPhone 5, apparently, Apple likes the look and feel of the current-gen iPhone enough to keep it around for one more product cycle.
While it looks like the current issue phone, the 4S has some interesting differences under the hood. As you might expect, the machine is more powerful, sporting the Apple-made A5 chip inside, the same chip that powers the iPad 2.To gamers, that means one thing: Better games. Games like Infinity Blade 2.
Epic's Mike Capps joined Apple's new CEO on stage, and showed off the gameplay of the sequel to the iOS game Infinity Blade. According to Capps, The A5 processor can "bring all sorts of detail to the environment, like fireflies, leaves in the wind, koi in the pond" and more. It all adds up to a more immersive, more "core" gaming experience.
Infinity Blade 2 hits December 1.
Sprint customers, you're in luck: You'll be able to join Verizon and AT&T and get an iPhone of your own.
The iPhone 4S comes in black and white, 16GB for $199, 32GB for $299, and 64GB for $399. 64GB is the first time in an iPhone. You can pre-order on October 7th, and it launched on the 14th.
