@ 81Perogies : #Siri call Sarah Conner to destroy you and your attempt at a post-apocalyptic 2029 where SkyNet (aka Siri) rules over man. #letstalkiphone

OK - so not all lost. The Siri addition looks genuinely incredible. We'll have to wait and see how it works day-to-day. Assembled journalists looking around hoping there will be a goody bag at the end.

Share this:
@ BekErgashev : "Give me directions to Hoover Tower." Siri brings up Maps, shows the route, and you're good to go. Now that's hype-worthy. #iphone #siri

Share this:

Siri has map integration. You can even ask it hands-free to read your messages... Obviously, not when your girlfriend's in the room.

@ jonathaneppers : apple's #siri 'intelligent assistant' is a game changer

Share this:

"How is the NASDQ doing today?" Followed by full answer. This might be the future.

Share this:

Forstall on stage - this Siri addition might just save the day. The presenter is asking abstract questions and the phone is answering. "What time is it in Paris?" Followed by answer.

Share this:

Get to Siri by holding down the home button. Hold on - this might be "awesome" (that's 24). It's like talking to Hal in 2001.

Share this:

Voice control - Siri: "Your intelligent assistant that helps you get things done by asking".

Share this:

Obviously, the 4S comes with iOS5 and iCloud.

Share this:

Video recorder - 4S takes 1080p high definition video. Also, video image stabilisation. Presenter is showing some fairly sharp video footage of a hot air balloon. Not the only hot air we've been subjected to this evening...

@ elleswords : NOOOOOOO...what happened to the #iphone5???? I have been waiting for that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Share this:
@ BeckyG_H : so disappointed there is no #iphone5

Eight-megapixel sensor in the new camera in the iPhone 4S

Share this:

Camera system - iPhone 4 already the most popular camera for posting snaps on Flickr.

Share this:

Double the speed on the connection times - same as 4G phones.

Share this:

Wireless - switches between two antennas to transmit and receive. Better call quality apparently.

Share this:

Another "Awesome" from a speaker at the Apple launch. That makes 23 so far...

Share this:
@ Marcello : So there you have it folks, as I said earlier no #iPhone5 release just yet, but instead we have an #iPhone4S to satisfy the pre-xmas demand!

Share this:

Hold on - the iPhone 4S. New A5 chip (same as iPad 2) in the iPhone 4S. Around x7 faster, especially good for games.

Share this:

Can this be it? Are they about to reveal?

Share this:

iPod Touch, available in black and white, shipping with iOS5 9 for the 8GB. The Nano (2GB) will be . No work on prices in sterling.

@ glennzb : I see the #iphone5 is out today. Yet another piece of technology I will only get to use by calling someone who owns one

Share this:

New clock faces app for Nano users who wear their device as a timepiece. Speaking of which, time they cracked on with the main event...

Share this:
@ indie3sixty : This just in the new #iphone5 will have the ability to call other phones. You will also be able to raise and lower the volume. #awesome

Share this:

Apple are still making iPods. Who knew? New model of the iPod Nano en route.

Share this:
@ SBT01 : Who cares about the #iphone5 get a #blackberry!

@ ThatGraham : iTunes match... magically transform your pirated music the legal music for a small annual fee #iphone5
