Size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process
LTE is available in selected markets and through selected carriers. Speeds will vary based on site conditions. For details on LTE support, contact your carrier and see www.apple.com/iphone/LTE.
CDMA is available only if iPhone 4s is sold and activated for use on a CDMA network.
FaceTime calling requires a FaceTime-enabled device for the caller and recipient and a Wi Fi connection. Availability over a mobile network depends on carrier policies; data charges may apply.
Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area. Internet access required. Mobile data charges may apply.
All battery claims depend on network configuration and many other factors; actual results will vary. Battery has limited recharge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced by an Apple service provider. Battery life and charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/uk/batteries and www.apple.com/uk/iphone/battery.html for more information.
4G is the next step up from 3G, giving you mobile internet speeds up to five times faster than before. In fact, even the average home broadband speed can't match 4G. That means you can stream movies in HD without buffering, play online games in real time and upload photos to Facebook instantly.
The 4G network we use already covers huge parts of the country and by the end of the year we're aiming to cover 98% of the population, so you'll be able to experience faster internet almost anywhere.
If you do find yourself somewhere that we haven't brought 4G to yet, don't worry, you'll still have access to our Advanced 3G service, the fastest 3G connection in the UK.
Our network uses the fastest version of 3G ever. Known as Advanced 3G, it gives impressive speeds that'll let you download your favourite movies in a matter of minutes, and make smooth, HD video calls over Skype or Facetime.
The great thing about Advanced 3G is that it already covers 98% of the population. So wherever you go with your iD plan, you'll get fast and reliable internet.
