Apple will unveil its latest version of iPhone today at Yerba Buena Center for Arts in San Francisco. The device is expected to have a larger screen and a new dock connector and should be a bigger leap forward than the 4S was.
It’s been almost a year since Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S with voice recognition (Siri) and a dual-core A5 chip allowing it to use much faster graphics for gameplay and to download data twice as fast. Whether its the iPhone 5 or “new iPhone” I just hope Apple doesn’t sticks to the same basic script they pulled off with the New iPad back in march. So, let’s see what Apple holds for us tonight.

Apple announced it has sold over four million of its new iPhone 4S, just three days after its launch on October 14. In addition, more than 25 million customers are already using iOS 5, in the first five days of its release, and more than 20 million customers have signed up for iCloud, a breakthrough set of free cloud services that automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and push it to all your devices.
“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend, the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPhone 4S is a hit with customers around the world, and together with iOS 5 and iCloud, is the best iPhone ever.”
iPhone 4S’s new features include Apple’s dual-core A5 chip for fast performance and stunning graphics; an all new camera with advanced optics; full 1080p HD resolution video recording; and Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking.

Just as expected, Tim Cook announced the new iPhone today in Cupertino. It is simply called “iPhone 4s″. On the outside it looks exactly the same, but from the inside its completely different and new.
Apple has installed a dual-core A5 CPU inside along with a new dual-core GPU that should boosts graphics performance up to 7x. Apple also has improved the antenna, it can switch between two different sets of antennae to avoid dropping calls based on how you hold it.
The camera on the iPhone 4S has also been updated to 8-megapixel with a backside illuminated CMOS sensor for better low-light performance. You can now shoot 1080p full HD video with real-time video image stabilization and noise reduction. Apple has also managed to increase battery life, as the device now has up to 8 hours of talk time.
So there you go guy! Its not an iPhone 5, its just another iPhone 4 with an improved specs.

Apple iPad 2 looks like a great upgrade over the original iPad. All in a thinner, lighter design, and faster than the original iPad.
The iPad 2 is an iteration in terms of its core specs. Here’s everything you need to know about the new iPad 2.
Dual-Core A5 Chip
Two powerful cores in one A5 chip mean iPad can do twice the work at once. You’ll notice the difference when you’re surfing the web, watching movies, making FaceTime video calls, gaming, and going from app to app to app. Multitasking is smoother, apps load faster, and everything just works better.
Battery Life Stays The Same
The iPad 2′s battery life is apparently not limited by the new design, it has the same 10 hour battery life as before, with a month of standby time.
Two cameras for FaceTime and HD video recording. You’ll see two cameras on iPad, one on the front and one on the back. They may be tiny, but they’re a big deal. They’re designed for FaceTime video calling. Like the iPhone 4′s rear snapper, it takes 720p video.
With up to nine times the graphics performance, gameplay on iPad is even smoother and more realistic. And faster graphics help apps perform better, especially those with video.
LED backlighting makes everything you see remarkably crisp, vivid, and bright. Even in places with low light, like an airplane. It’s designed to show off everything in portrait and landscape, so with every turn (even upside down), the display adjusts to fit. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178° viewing angle.
The iPad smart magnetic cover falls perfectly into place and stays put to protect your iPad screen, yet doesn’t add bulk to its thin, light design.
Apple will launch the second generation of the iPad on Friday, March 11.
