[How to] Improve Battery Life Of Your iPhone 4S

A couple of days back we broke the news to you about a certain battery problem for an iPhone 4S user. The problem appears to be affecting some iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users as well, indicating a likely software bug rather than a hardware defect.People at iDownloadBlog seemed to have worked out a solution that may not work for everybody, even though some folks are reporting seeing an improved battery performance.

UBS Estimates Over 42 million iPhone Sells This Quarter

We already knew that iPhone 4S was off to a flyer with over 1million preorders within First 24hours and over 4 million sells within first 3 days of it’s launch!

So the stage is already set for a record sells of the iPhone units to hit yet another milestone and as the iPhone 4S launches in 22 more countries on 28th October, the expected sells of the iPhone market would cross 42million as surveyed earlier by UBS bank.

“While the timing of the 70 (of 105) country launches could have some impact on sales ahead of the launch, the split, and hence, our estimates look conservative,” Um said.

Though Siri currently only supports few languages, analysts believe the initial 28 million unit estimate to be conservative.

With the rumors of iPhone 4S being launched in India and other countries those estimates looks quite achievable.

When Apple launched the new iPhone 4S, amongst a few new features, the most talked about after Siri, was its new Camera and the recording capacity.This new camera allowed the users to record high quality videos at 1080p which is an improvement over the already pretty impressive 720p, 5 megapixel camera in the iPhone 4.

The iPhone 4S  has only been on sale for a week, and we’ve already been treated to the first ever music video to be recorded on Apple’s latest smartphone. Music enthusiasts, The Turnback decided to film the video for their new single, Cellophane Sky, using the new iPhone 4S handsets, instead of the usual high-spec cameras. Filmed in full 1080p at the New York nightclub, Webster Hall, the video is believed to be the first made using the iPhone 4S.

The video shows immaculate quality of camera in modern smartphones. A few years back, the cameras in our phones were would never get a decent picture let alone such high quality videos.But days have changed for our better,now with the launch of smart phones which are capable of producing such high quality videos which can easily compete with  point and shoot cameras we take on our holidays, as well as being able to record full HD 1080p video.
