The iPhone has always been, like pretty much everything Steve Jobs creates, a combination of the highest technology available to normal people and a certain heavily accessible streak. The iPhone 3GS (and yes, the S seriously stands for “speed”) is no exception to this rule. It offers all kinds of great technology, along with the Apple tradition of bringing it into the reach of the common person. Using the unique software (and the hardware that Apple updated because of so many user complaints), you can can take both impressive photos and gorgeous (okay, pretty decent amateur) videos with this bad boy. You even have a few features that were never available to most people before, such as remote wiping (which isn’t as nasty as it sounds).
Have you ever had a phone be lost or stolen before? If you have, you are no doubt aware that your information can be used against you in all sorts of nasty ways. However, the iPhone 3GS allows you to wipe the phone’s memory from a distance. Not too long ago, one had to be a business to gain access to a capability like that. But now it’s available to everybody, even if you aren’t a megacorporation with all kinds of fancy connections. Who says only the rich are able to get richer?
Do you like to take pictures? Well, if you do you’ll appreciate the new iPhone has a 3 megapixel camera on it. A lot of users did not appreciate only having 2 to work with in the prior incarnation. Another sweet feature you will probably notice is that the Tap to Focus software has been improved considerably, which may make your pics a bit better. Also, with the video camera editing software, you can post all of your friends failing epically in videos with just the right amount of slow motion, repetition and amusing theme music. You can listen with the stereo bluetooth option it features.
