Apple to Release iPhone 4S with New GPS Features?

iPhone4STheNextWeb offers some last minute information based on "sources familiar" with the situation.

Sources familiar with Apple’s plans have revealed to us that Apple will indeed debut the new iPhone 4S today, featuring an 8-megapixel camera with “enhanced optics” and “more definitive GPS features” thanks to Apple’s new A5 processor.

Their report mirrors much of what has been expected. Apple will released an iPhone 4S today with an 8-megapixel camera and an A5 processor. The only new information is the claim that the new iPhone will have "more definitive GPS features". The site doesn't clarify what those might be.

They also report that the teardrop "iPhone 5" design that we've seen for months is a prototype iPhone "which won't be available any time soon" and the iPhone 4S will have the same dimensions as the iPhone 4. The focus of the new device will be the Assistant recognizer that we've previously profiled.

Overall, the information is consistent with what we've heard about today's announcements. Apple's event kicks off today at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern.

16 months later and we get the EXACT SAME PHONE with a better processor and a slightly better camera?

I don't think that word means what you think it means.

I still can't believe Apple would wait 18 months just for a spec bump. Doesn't make sense, no matter how many rumors I read.

This isn't 2009 w/ the 3GS - Android is exploding and an iPhone 4S will not make people run to the Apple stores.
