Many of us here at Worth Ave. Group are big Apple fans. We love any and all things related to Apple and what gadgets they will release next. As a result, we have been over the moon excited about the release of the new iPhone 4S and the new iOS 5.
Our biggest question was how does the 4S stand up next to all the previous iPhones? I mean they are really great too…right? We found this chart from CBCNews.
