After months of rumors, many rounds of speculation, and long wait by Apple lovers, iPhone 4S is launched today in seven countries. Apple had announced that the iPhone 4s would be available for pre-orders by 7th October and would be available to buy from 14th October.
There have been many different varied reactions to the iPhone 4S and mostly they have been negative. With Apple being lambasted for not releasing the iPhone 5 and also packing the new iPhone in the same old casing, many said that this is the beginning of the end and Apple is loosing its shine without the Iconic Steve Jobs. Today Apple defies all those speculations and create’s yet another success story which everyone was questioning.
Apple registered more than a million pre-orders within 24 hours. AT&T, Verizon and Sprint are completely booked and AT&T alone sold more than 200,000 units within few hours and even reports coming out the the AT&T Activation servers overloaded on the iPhone 4S launch. This is by far the most successful iPhone launch till date.
Why Is iPhone 4S such a huge Success ???
Despite all speculations, despite of all pundits giving a thumbs down verdict, despite of a single core processor, same old design, no iPhone 5, 512 MB RAM, smaller screen than Galaxy S II and what not ( the list seems unending). Why is iPhone 4S still a success ?
Well the answer is simple its all due to :
- Apple focuses more on user experience than specifications.
- Always Innovative and Indigenous.
- Bringing Revolutionary Technology to Market (Apple Siri)
- Having Robust Engineering Marvels phone units.
Lets us analyze the iPhone 4S specifications and reverse engineer what Apple had in mind when they started making this device. Let us think for ourselves that what could be a specific explanation of all those things for which Apple is being criticized. Once a person does that he will than be able to realize what a visionary leader Steve Jobs was and the extent of effort Apple puts in all of its devices.
Why Doesn’t the all new iPhone has a bigger screen ? :
Well we all are in awe of the fancy AMOLED displays that the Android counterparts have been offering for a very long time but its often given a thought that why does iPhone 4S still has a 3.5″ screen. The answer is pretty simple, according to a report the screen size of 3.5″ is perfect for touch devices as the screen size enables our fingers to reach any point when held in the same hand. The 4″ AMOLEDS do look fancy but are they that convenient ??? Have a look
So even if Apple is going to launch the iPhone 5 we can expect it to have no bigger than 3.5″ screen i.e if and only if Apple invents a new way to interact with the Touch Screen.
Apple focuses more on user experience than specifications.
Why Does The iPhone 4S have the same design ? :
Well Apple is pretty much firm and confident on what it develops. The design and form of the iPhone 4 is state of the art. Sleek and Slim and pretty much the source of inspiration of all other contenders. What Apple had developed was awesome and amazing and there is particularly no reason for Apple to change the form until and unless its offering something even better.
Also as the new iPhone is marked as iPhone 4S its pretty obvious that it is going to have the same design and form. One thing which we can say is that even after 17 months everyone expected Apple to offer something new but consider that even after 17 months the iPhone 4 was still a craze and the design is still a hit. So why change something just for the sake of changing it.

Why wasn’t the iPhone 5 launched ? :
I can assume that this may be the biggest question which you would have been thinking till now. Why ? Why ? Why the hell for gods sake ?? Why ? wasnt the iPhone 5 launched by Apple that too as the iPhone 4 is almost 17 months old. The answer is pretty simple and obvious and was answered by another genius several hundreds of years ago :
Whats in the name ?? —– Shakespeare
You have the iPhone which is faster and smarter than all other devices. You have a smartphone that has Siri, iCloud, iOS 5, the best GPU, the sharpest Camera that any smartphone provides, state of the art design and aesthetics and an awesome App store. So what if it is named 4S, 5 or even DumbS.
iPhone 4S is by far the smartest smartphone in the market. Even though it has jus 512 MB RAM but combined power of the Dual Core A5 Processor we have now infront of ourselves a device which is twice as fast as the Galaxy S II. This enforces the age old theory that clock frequency isn’t the only yardstick to measure performance.

Why didn’t Apple launch the low end iPhone 4 ?? :
Hmmm… now this is not fair. iPhone 5 could be somewhat justified but a low end iPhone 4 is simply a silly question. Why ? Coz the iPhone 3GS is now offered for $ 0 on the contract basis. Doesn’t that mean a very low end I mean so low that it comes for free. Go play be happy…
Apple has even surprised the world with the super intelligent and amazing new voice control technology the Apple Siri. Apple was criticized heavily after the WWDC when Apple announced the iOS 5 that it had nothing innovative and indigenous. Well this was not the part where Apple was focusing at all and they ware planning to take everything at an entirely next level. How many Android devices have that technology ?…….. None.
Always Innovative and Indigenous.
As I am writing this, Apple has just started selling out iPhone 4S units to public for which they have been lining up since 4 AM. And just to make you understand the gravity of the situation, Apple has probably sold a thousand times more iPhone units than the total number of alphabets in this post and that too before i have even hit the publish button.
