iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

As of this week, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 5 entirely, focusing instead on the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C, and the iPhone 4S. While it was widely expected that Apple would take the smaller display of the iPhone 4S out of the equation entirely, it would seem instead that the company opted for ease in differentiation between models. It's a whole heck of a lot more difficult to sell an iPhone 5S when you've got a nearly identical-looking iPhone 5 sitting on the shelf for a lower price, after all.

Galaxy S III knocks iPhone 4S from US top spot (but iPhone 5 looms)

August was the first month that the iPhone 4S wasn't the best-selling smartphone in the US, Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley told CNET, having crunched the figures from retailers across the country.

US Cellular turned down iPhone 4S deal: here’s why

It should be well known by now that an iPhone on any carrier inside the United States is a big deal for that carrier, but this week we're to understand that one carrier in particular, US Cellular, turned down the opportunity. The original exclusive carrier of the iPhone was AT&T, and it was only this past year that Verizon was allowed in on the party. With the iPhone 4S, the doors were opened to several carriers including little-known group C-Spire.

Over 1m iPhone 4S activations so far says AT&T

AT&T has activated more than one million of the new iPhone 4S since the handset went on sale, the carrier announced today, after its Q3 financial results suggested demand for Apple's smartphone could be waning. The most successful iPhone launch AT&T has seen, the carrier has confirmed, the reason for the strong demand is down to the speedy HSPA+ support and ability to talk and access data simultaneously, CEO Ralph de la Vega reckons.

Despite not being the more dramatic iPhone 5 revamp, the iPhone 4S isn't doing too shabby.

What we've got for you here is an official statement from Verizon outlining exactly how their iPhone 4S can be unlocked, just as it should be, when you're planning on traveling abroad.

iPhone 4S pre-order stock sold out inside first day of sales

iPhone 4S pre-order stock sold out inside first day of sales

While the only reported sales numbers are coming from AT&T at "200,000 orders", it's clear if you visit any of the three carriers OR the Apple store itself that the iPhone 4S has now completely sold out of its pre-order stock. Have a look at your Apple store online and you'll find that pre-order sales have shifted to 1-2 weeks, this putting shipping dates past the original delivery date quoted on the day of announcement. What this means is that if you'd like to get an iPhone 4S on launch day, you're going to have to head down to one of the three carriers or your local Apple store and set up a tent - camping time, ladies and gentlemen!
