We have been anticipating the release of the new iPhone upgrade and honestly, very few in the gadget community expected that Apple would call it iPhone 4S.
Most companies whose business is directly related to the latest gadget releases expected that the new iPhone would be called the iPhone 5.
It does make sense to expect it to be called the iPhone 5 because its predecessor is called the iPhone 4. But then again, the very first iPhone was called the iPhone 3G and then when it upgraded, it was called the iPhone 3GS, so that could be something to think about.
The anticipated arrival of the new iPhone was a combination of shock and excitement for us and for the whole gadget loving community, as almost everybody was expecting Apple to release the new iPhone model and call it iPhone 5.
But to our surprise, the official name of the new iPhone was iPhone 4S. Many believe that this particular iPhone’s name was actually in homage of the late Steve Jobs, hence the “S” in the smartphone’s name.
Even though the iPhone 4S was officially unveiled days before the death of Steve Jobs, those close to Steve anticipated his inevitable demise, and so the name of the new iPhone became the iPhone 4S.
