Why Apple released iPhone 4S instead of iPhone 5? And, Why you should stop Bragging about iPhone 5

Hurdles in introducing the iPhone 5
The moment the iPhone 4S was announced many of us were disappointed for not being able to see a new design. So, what stopped Apple from introducing a new design?
As far as the features are concerned, we saw all of the expected iPhone 5 features in the iPhone 4S expect the redesign and display. Firstly, to make an entirely new iPhone 5 with a slimmer housing, the parts inside need to be slim too! Which simply means smaller chips, smaller and thinner battery, squeeze the lens, smaller antenna and much more. This would have definitely led to better features in a small housing but would you compromise for shorter battery backup?

Another interesting reason which is apparent from the Apple’s market share mentioned earlier is that the iPhone 4 comprises of 50% of the total iPhone market share. Apple did not have enough production lines to keep up with the demand for iPhone 4. So, they are planning to introduce more production lines. With this in mind, it makes perfect sense to introduce iPhone 4S with the same housing!

Also, this was a smart move by Apple to play safe. If you try to recall you might remember what happened when the iPhone 4 was launched; it had antenna issues! They did not want to mess up with the brand image by introducing a new iPhone which would be criticized for maybe poor battery life or other problems. They simply wanted to buy more time to work on the iPhone 5! Also, they can wait and see the Samsung Galaxy III and then make the iPhone similar or better than it.

Moreover, this move can help Apple save money involved in redesigning an entirely new iPhone and spend less money in improvising an existing popular device. Apple can later mobilize and pump these earnings into R&D for the new iPhone 5.

    thanks

  • Yeah we can say that this new iPhone 4S is the modified version of  iPhone 4 but still it is quite similar to it.. we all are waiting for iPhone 5 in future.

  • iPhone 4s has got many amazing features like siri and its processing speed is quite fast which makes it a reliable product.

    just because they did great with the 4s definitely DOESNT imply they aren’t making another one… how retarded?! If they stopped Iphones would get old and their business would switch to androids and such because they would keep improving and apple would loose its main source of income. This article I found extremely ignorant and written by an uninformed person. DONT FREAK PEOPLE THE IPHONE 5 IS DEFINITELY ON ITS WAY.

    you should realize that there was no iPhone 5 coming! Did Apple ever say
    that they were going to launch an iPhone 5? It’s just the press and the
    media that bragged about the iPhone 5.

  • Instead they improvised an existing model and then re launched it

    and expected much more.
