This week has been a crazy week for Apple. The company released the highly anticipated iPhone 4s on October 4, and two days later Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away. After the new iPhone was released their stock dropped 5 percent. Why? After Apple consumers waited for months for the hyped up ‘iPhone 5’ to be released, the public was disappointed by the iPhone 4s. Although it has new features, the shape is exactly the same as the iPhone 4. There is no doubt that Apple stores will be packed as consumers get their latest tech purchase, but a lot of people are disappointed that no new design was created. Below you can see the difference between the predicted iPhone 5 and the actual iPhone 4s. Will you buy the new iPhone 4s? Leave a comment!
