Apple iPhone 4S Unboxing: New video

Apple's next-generation iPhone gets on onscreen opening

With the official Apple iPhone 4S release date still days away T3 has gone hands-on with the next-generation Apple smartphone bringing you the first official iPhone 4S unboxing video

Ahead of this Friday’s iPhone 4S UK release date, as eager fans queue outside stores and millions of wannabe owners place pre-orders online Apple has allowed T3 to go hands-on with the iOS 5 powered device to bring you the first Apple iPhone 4S unboxing.

Tearing open the cellophane wrapper like a collection of excited children on Christmas morning the official T3 iPhone 4S unboxing shows everything you could want to see from Apple’s trademark sleek packaging to the first look of the iPhone 4 replacement in action, booting up to run the newly launched operating system, as well as all the other in-box goodies.

Apple iPhone 4S Specs

Whilst some were disappointed that the iPhone 4S retained the form factor of the iPhone 4 (Gadget Show host Jason Bradbury described the iPhone 4S as ‘disappointing’) Apple has done a number on its innards adding the same ARM A5 dual-core processor found within its oversize sibling the Apple iPad 2.

Other new additions to Apple’s must have handset include an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and the introduction of Siri, a super smart voice activated personal assistant that is to help transform a number of mundane tasks into a few simple commands.

Apple iPhone 4S Release Date

Touching down on UK shores on the same day that it hits the US the Apple iPhone 4S release date has been set for this Friday, October 14th. Despite the handset’s arrival still being some days off, eager fans have already started queuing for the iPhone 4S with one T3 follower setting up camp outside Apple’s London Regent Street store some 160 hours ahead of launch.

Apple iPhone 4S Price

Whilst Apple has revealed that the iPhone 4S will be available to buy as a SIM-free handset with 16, 32 and 64GB variants costing £499, £599 and £699 respectively, all five of the UK’s big networks have confirmed they will stock the device on subsidised tariffs.
