In October 2011, Apple released the iPhone 4S for AT&T, T-mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. Featuring front and back glass panels, a front and rear camera, and retina display, the iPhone 4S looks identical to the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4S is externally identified by the model number A1387.
Inside it now runs the A5 Processor just like the iPad 2. The rear camera now sports an 8MP camera with LED flash and shoots full 1:1 1080p video at 30 FPS while the front camera retains the VGA quality photos and 30 FPS of its predecessor. The iPhone 4S also comes with an integrated voice-controlled system named Siri. Siri can do many things ranging from setting up reminders to doing web searches.
The most commonly needed repairs for the iPhone 4S are cracked displays and rear panels, and dead batteries. iFixit carries the best iPhone 4S screens, iPhone 4s glass rear panels, and iPhone 4S batteries on the market, along with an entire catalog of other iPhone 4S parts for the less common repairs.
