The Let’s Talk iPhone event touted by many as the announcement event for the iPhone 5 has just begun at the Apple Campus. Tim Cook has just took to the stage and has announced the events inauguration.
Tim Cook : This is my first product launch since being named CEO. I’m sure you didn’t know that
Tim Cook : This room is called the Town Hall, which Tim says has quite a history.The original iPod was launched here. “It went on to revolutionize the way we listen to music.”
Tim Cook :125 percent growth year-over-year for iPhone sales. iTunes talk, now up to 20 million songs — twenty times what the service launched with. It’s the number one music store in the world, 16 billion songs downloaded..
Tim Cook : According to a ChangeWave survey, HTC is second at 49 percent. Apple is #1 at 70
Tim Cook : iPads are “showing up everywhere” according to Tim. In schools they’re “changing the way teachers teach and kids learn, and many educators agree with us.”
Scott Forstall : iOS is now the number one mobile operating system, 43 percent compared to Android’s 33 percent as of the July ComScore number Apple is quoting.
Scott Forstall : More than 500,000 apps in the App Store, 140,000 are specifically for the iPad. “That gives anyone who owns an iPad a better experience.”
Scott Forstall :Apple has paid out $3 billion to developers — and of course has taken a tidy cut itself.
Scott Forstall :We’re looking at the Cards app, which lets you make your own greeting cards.
Scott Forstall : iOS 5 drops on October 12th! (We have been waiting for this one………)
Eddy Cue is up on stage now to talk about iCloud.
Eddy Cue :”We’ve integrated it right into our apps, so everything happens automatically.”"It just works, and iCloud is free.”
Eddy Cue : Documents in the Cloud means your docs get pushed as well. “My documents are updated across my devices.” Sensing a trend here…
iOS 5 on October 12th and iTunes Match by September end. Finally this puts rest to all rumor’s.
Phil Shiller Takes Stage to talk about iPod. (We have heard of new iPods………..)
Phil Shiller : “We introduced the iPod because we loved music, and that hasn’t changed.”
Phil Shiller : “We’ve added some updates this year.” Multi-touch display can be displayed with big icons, instead of an array of four. Swipe between them, “it’s really simple.”
Finally Behold the iPhone 4S
“Of course it starts with a Retina display, of course it’s glass on the back… but don’t be deceived, because inside it’s all new.” It has the A5 chip! It’s up to 2x faster than before, with dual-core graphics, which are said to be seven times faster than previous iPhone.
Mike Capps from Epic is up on stage to show off a demo of the All New iPhone 4S
Epic made $20 million in revenue on Infinity Blade. Now, it’s time to see Infinity Blade 2!
“We’re going to show you some graphics techniques that aren’t even available on home gaming consoles.”
We’re going after the creator of the Infinity Blade. This is a realtime demo, by the way.
This is using some graphical techniques from the latest God of War.
Leaves and firefly in the air, coy swimming in the pod.
Stay on This post to get regular updates……..
Mike Capps : the battery life, and the 4S will offer eight hours of 3G talk time. Six hours of browsing, nine on WiFi. 10 hours of video, and 40 hours of music. “Fantastic battery life.”
Apple Introduces New Wireless System
Mike Capps :”Our engineering system has worked really hard at advancing the state of the art… it can now intelligently switch between the two antennas between transmit and receive.”
The iPhone 4S is both — GSM and CDMA. The first for any iPhone.
There’s a new Image Signal Processor that Apple designed, enabling face detection and 26 percent better white balance.
26 % better Auto White Balance
Comparo tie: Bionic takes 3.7 seconds for the first picture, 2 for the Galaxy S II, Sensation 2.1. Much better than nay previous iPhone and solves one major issue.
The new 4S is “entirely new” on the inside, and Phil is re-capping the specs.
We’re looking at some amazing photos of balloons, flowers, and squirrels. “Do you know how hard it is to make a squirrel stand still?”
next come the recording
1080p is on tap, no surprise. “Just the resolution you want.” You hear that 4K? Nobody wants you. There’s video image stabilization, with temporal noise reduction.Video time, edited with some sound and cuts, but otherwise untweaked.
Now its Siri time? Siri will be very dependent on audio quality through the mic. I’ve seen to much voice recognition fail because the engine couldn’t tell what I was saying. Apple better have stepped up its call quality. ”Will it rain in Cupertino” or “Do I need an umbrella today?” Both the same question, but different ways of asking.
“What is the weather like today?” Siri responds: “Here is the forecast for today.”
“What time is it in Paris?” Siri responds: “The time in Paris, France is 8:16pm.” Siri also brings up a live clock.
“Wake me up tomorrow at 6am.” Siri responds “Okay, I set it for 6am.”
you can even set the voice alarm using the siri
Pre-orders for the 4S start this friday, the 7th. Available on October 14th.
It’ll hit US, Canada, Australia, the UK, France, Germany, and Japan. In the US it’ll be Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint!
I dont know about all you guys talking about iPhone 4S but i particularly like the FREE tag below iPhone 3GS
Tim Cook is back on the stage.
Tim Cook : “Now, when you look at each of these, they’re great and fantastic and industry leading in and of themselves…” “What puts Apple way out front is how they’re engineered to work together so well.”
“I am so incredibly proud of this company and all of the teams who work so hard to bring all of the innovations you’ve seen today.”
