The first iPhone 4S pre-order shipments seem to be arriving for the lucky few around the world. Certain customers in Germany has been delivered an iPhone 4S already.
Images of the iPhone 4S packaging and handset have been posted by German site Macerkopf.de. Photos and screenshots of the device reveal physical details and the highly-anticipated “Siri” feature that Apple unveiled alongside the 4S last Tuesday…
A video from China yesterday showed Siri in action on the iPhone 4S. The technology features a “Raise to Speak” mode for talking to Siri like a normal phone call. Benchmarks for the 4S have also revealed that the device is nearly 70% faster than the iPhone 4 when it comes to graphics processing.
As revealed by this German unboxing, the iPhone 4S packaging looks nearly identical to the iPhone 4 packaging. A picture of the iPhone 4S back reveals that its model number is A1387. The iPhone 4 was model A1332.
The iPhone 4S goes on sale officially this Friday morning on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint in the United States. Some pre-order deliveries have already started shipping in the US, but there has yet to be confirmation that anyone in the US has received an iPhone 4S in the mail early.
Apple announced that it sold 1 million iPhone 4S pre-orders in the first 24 hours of availability last Friday, making this newest handset Apple’s fastest-selling product ever.
