Well, the wait is over, folks. Apple’s new CEO has unveiled the next generation iPhone — the iPhone 4S. Aesthetically, it’s the same design as the iPhone 4 but if you look under the hood, you’ll see it’s packing some new components that will surely blow the competition out of the water. It featuers the same dual-core A5 chip that debuted in the iPad 2 and its dual-core graphics processor gives 7 times the graphical performance of the iPhone 4′s A4 chip.
Incase and French label A.P.C. have teamed up for a few accessories for your MacBooks and iPad 2s. There’s a protective sleeve for the 15″ MacBook Pro and a book jacket for the iPad 2, with both being available in two designs. One of the designs is actually exclusive to the Asia market. This capsule collection combines the nuanced look and feel of the finest selvage denim from Japan with superb device-driven design. The clean, minimalist design of the A.P.C. Book Jacket and A.P.C. Sleeve evoke the essence of simplicity, while premium denim and leather trim offer an exceptional look and feel.

It’s one of Apple’s more affordable products with a starting price of $499 and it’s super portable. The iPad 2 is lighter and faster than its predecessor and it packs some new features which we’ve been demanding since before the original iPad even dropped. So what’s changed? The design’s been tweaked as the iPad 2 is 33 percent thinner and weighs only 1.3 pounds. The beauty now houses a dual core processor chip dubbed the A5 for up to nine times the performance speeds.

The aluminum shells remain but one of the standout features is something that most probably haven’t ever heard of. The Thunderbolt port allows you to connect high-performance peripherals and high-res displays to a single port. Transfer rates are theoretically upto 10 Gbps which is just nuts. There aren’t that many Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals out right now but that should change over the coming months.
