The History of the iPhone 3GS
When Apple released the iPhone 3GS in June 2009, nearly two years to the day of its original smartphone, iPhone customers finally had the digital personal assistant of their dreams. Like its predecessor, more than 1 million units were sold in the first weekend, in just seven countries. Marketed as having twice the speed of the iPhone 3G, the new GS system was now capable of loading apps in just a few short seconds.
iPhone 3GS Features
Although the iPhone 3GS did not include any aesthetic upgrades, the smartphone received an internal technological overhaul. The souped-up CPU was now powerful enough to support more than 100 new features, including document editing functions like cut, copy and paste, stereo Bluetooth, voice control of menu items and music, a digital compass, as well as a landscape touchscreen keyboard. The iPhone 3GS also included a revamped 3MP camera that had improved optics, video recording capabilities, a tap-to-focus feature and a fairly sophisticated editing program.
Customers were initially offered their choice of a smooth black or white finish in both the 16GB and 32GB models. When the iPhone 4G was released the following year, the 8GB model, which was only available in black, replaced the iPhone 3GS as Apple's budget model. The iPhone 3GS also includes an improved battery that Apple claims can power the device for nine hours when using the Wi-Fi mode or five hours when using the 3G network to browse online.
