But that's what they said last year, and the year before! So is the iPhone 4S a great phone? Of course it it. But the problem that you will soon be facing is app compatibility. Read on to find out how? It's a big drawback.
Many app developers, especially beginners will be targetting their apps at the iPhone 5. It takes them a lot of work to make the app and they aren't ready to do extra work to make the app compatible with two different sizes. You might think the developer could still choose the iPhone 4S screen size for his/her app. But of you were a developer who wants to make money, would you make your app compatible with a phone that people paid a lot for, or a phone that people paid a little for?
That's the problem you'll face, unless Apple put a rule that all apps must be compatible with both screen sizes. That's harsh for the developer bur better for the user. This is when Apple will need to choose between developer and user. I guess they'll go for developer in this case.
Do you think buying an iPhone 4S now is a good idea?
