The iPhone 4S features the same design as the iPhone 4 and is the first device to support Apple’s new Siri “intelligent assistant” and dictation system. The 4S supports both CDMA and GSM, allowing global roaming. It has an updated camera with a 8-megapixel sensor that offers improved low-light performance and 1080p video recording.
