iPhone 4S

So, no iPhone 5 but iPhone 4S – yes I also felt a little underwhelmed at first but when you think back to the 3G and 3GS this was no small update, ask anyone who ever used a 3G 🙂

Siri looks to be an awesome feature and will certainly help with emails and texts during my daily commutes, but seeing as I am currently using a 3GS – for me this is a huge up spec !

8MP camera, Siri, Dual Core A5, Retina Display the list goes on. The iPhone 4S will ship with IOS 5 as expected but I can’t help feel that Apple kind of forgot the usual ‘Devs get ready’ email and the 2 week submission window. GM seed is now out and an expected date of 12th October seems a little short compared to previous releases.

IOS 5 is quoted as having 200 new features, coupled with the Dual Core A5 I can’t help thinking this is going to be a fantastic marriage of hardware and software – but I can’t seem to shake the doubt that Apple are holding back for an iPhone 5 debut next year Q2 or something.

Anyway, the 3GS has served me well and it won’t be long before we see this old faithful drop off the glossy list of handsets once another unit is appended – just as once this exact fate existed for the 3G.

WWDC2011_LogoNope not a Pink Floyd reference, unless you have been living under a rock, today is the launch of the annual WWDC event. IOS 5 is certainly an interest point for me, however Mac OSX Lion is expected to be a focal point along with iCloud.

Starting at 10am pacific time (6pm BST) Steve Jobs will be delivering his much awaited keynote speech.

It has been rumoured that no new iPone will be announced this year, but it could still come as the “One last thing..” who knows. I am hoping someone will be providing a live stream as per previous years, but if all else fails Twitter I am sure will keep us abreast of the announcements.

@macrumourslive is certainly on my follow list.
