Iphone EmailTalk about last minute upgrades: In a press release today, Apple has
revealed a number of significant upgrades to both the iPhone‘s
battery life and touch screen. Instead of what I believe was around 5
hours of video/talk and 16 hours of audio playback, Apple has updated
the iPhone’s battery life rating to the following numbers: up to 8
hours talk time, a whopping 250 hours of standby (over 10 days), 6
hours of internet use, 7 hours of video playback and 24 hours of audio
playback. Of course, just like any other mobile phone, these numbers
can vary depending on various factors like intermittent use and network
configuration (whether features like Wi-Fi or the speakerphone are
enabled, etc.).
In addition, Apple has changed the spec of the original 3.5″ plastic
surface of the iPhone to “optical-quality” glass, which should bring
some smiles to those who were concerned about the
durability of the
phone’s primary feature and user interface.
This is quite the update to drop on anxious customers less than two weeks
from launch. I can only wonder what other tricks and unknown or
upgraded features (PUSH email? HSPDA instead of EDGE?) Apple could be
waiting to announce.
