It looks like George may have been underwhelmed with iOS 5.1 hitting the App Store, but there’s a little something that I’m sure many of you will be excited about to see once you update your AT&T iPhone 4S.
As you see from the screencap I took of my iPhone 4S, the 3G indicator has now been replaced with a ‘4G’ indicator. The reason for this is because the iPhone 4S meets the minimum requirement for AT&T’s 4G service at 14.4Mbps.
Now granted, the 4S doesn’t technically give you the full benefits of a true 4G service, but it’s one step closer iPhone owners will take to a true 4G iPhone until Apple decides to finally release one. Which will certainly happen now that the iPad has 4G service on both AT&T & Verizon. So for the time being, enjoy waving around your iPhone 4S in the face of people who are using 3G devices. I’m sure you’ll be the envy of every party you go to, that is, unless there’s another AT&T iPhone 4S owner there. That sure would be awkward.
