I upgraded my iPhone 4S from a 3GS two weeks ago and thought that I’d talk a little about the improvements that I’ve experienced so far.  FASTER, Faster, faster......the new 4S performs much quicker than the old 3GS in just about every category.  From downloading email and apps to using the photo and video features, the new 4S outperforms its older counter part by a country mile.

I also noticed that the connectivity improved greatly in geographic areas where I used to have many issues even though I haven't switched cell providers.  Case in point, I used to never be able to use text messaging while at the football game, but yesterday my 4S had no problems sending and receiving while at the stadium.

The battery life did not improve, in fact it seems to drain faster than the 3GS. But overall, the 4S seems to be a marked improvement.  Saving and downloading all of my old apps to the new phone and activating it out of the box was not as cumbersome as I expected, which was also nice.  Really the worst part of the whole change was that AT&T messed up the order so my wife’s phone did not arrive.  Which means she keeps stealing my new iPhone!

So with the new iOS5 out, when should you start developing apps for the new platform? We'll take a look at that today and some other interesting links to share.

Happy Halloween!

But, with many users still using older versions, when is it the right time to start developing on iOS5?
