Apple iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S Meta Live-Blog! [UPDATE]


Hey folks, thanks for joining us as we bring you coverage of today’s iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S announcement. We’re expecting some pretty big things, possibly even including new iPods and maybe a new Apple TV, but today’s real focus is the iPhone. The current model has been on the market for over a year now, which is historically uncharacteristic for iPhones, so anticipation is pretty hot. What can we expect?

We’re hoping for a 1GHz (or more) dual-core processor like the A5 found in the iPad 2. We might also see 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera and a new design. And as Apple always manages to do, there may be a little more battery life in store for us, too. Additionally, Apple might announce a second iPhone, which may or may not be a super-upgraded version of the current iPhone 4 — the iPhone 4S.

Finally, we might see the addition of a new carrier to the iPhone family – Sprint. We’re hearing that Sprint might have invested very heavily on the next Apple smartphone, so we’ll see how that pans out.

Be sure to stay tuned as we aggregate and curate live coverage of the event from some of our favorite blogs and news sources online! If you plan on watching the event as it progresses, be sure to stick around here so we leverage the work for you. We’ll be following five or six of the biggest tech hubs/blogs on the web, and we’ll pipe here into our meta live-blog.

The event begins at 1:00 p.m. EST, or 10:00 a.m. for you west coast folks, but we’ll get things started one hour earlier.

1:00 p.m. Folks, CoverItLive, a service we use to live blog, is down. So we kickin’ it old school with these updates. Bear with us for now!

1:00 p.m. GDGT says that the event is starting and that the audience has been asked to silence their mobile devices. Sweet.

[UPDATE: Our technical difficulties continue to plague us, so we apologize. The best live coverage on the Internet right now is The Verge. Seriously, follow them.]

  • Apple Tech Support

     Apple’s iphone 4s is look really nice , especially the camera movie stabilizer. I really like Apple’s product. There is always something new in their products. Apple’s tech support is always available for help.

  • Android TV

    The main talking point of the iPhone 4S, quite literally, is Siri – a voice-controlled in-built app that acts like your own PA. Hold down the home button to launch Siri and then ask it to perform certain tasks.
