Getting a new 4S, what firmware can I expect?

Recommended Posts

Hey Neowin^^

 

I plan to get a new iPhone 4S this week as the iPhone 5 is a bit too expensive for my taste :pinch: Now my question is, how high are the chances that it will still ship with 6.1.2 or lower? I think I will get it regardless though if it comes with 6.1.3 I might aswell stick with my iPhone 4 till iOS7 releases and leave the 4S in its box :P

 

Thanks for any help in advance^^

It will come with whatever is current at the time it's shipped. In general Apple updates it's old stock so you'll be getting the new stuff (unless a new update just came out and you went within a week or so, you'd get old firmware).

If you get it from Apple, the chances are low. Also, are you sure you can't wait a few months until the launch of the next iPhone, which will cause iPhone 5's price to drop?

Alright that confirms my fear thanks for the quick replies :/ I had a little hope because two years ago when I got my 4 it was still running 4.1 I think while the newest firmware was 4.1.3 but I guess things have changed :pinch:

And I would get it from T-Mobile by the way and not Apple directly. Also well the 4S would cost me 200? extra while the 5 would be 300? and while these 100? wouldn't hurt me all that much I don't like to spend money where I think it's uneeded, the bigger screen and sleeker design aren't worth 100? in my eyes :( Now if T-Mobile would tell me that the 5 will start being only 200? once the 5S/6 is out I would wait but otherwise... :p
