Friday 13th China gets the iPhone 4S

Many parts of the world have had access to the iPhone 4S since it was first launched back in October, but with any iPhone release it is staggered around the world. Now on Friday the 13th China is to get the iPhone 4S along with a variety of other nations.

The news that was announced by a press release from the company ends months of speculation of when the handset would be reaching the country. This continues the quick rollout around the world of the latest iPhone, and according to AppleInsider will bring the device to over 90 countries.

Other countries also getting the iPhone 4S on the 13th include the likes of the British Virgin Islands, Cameroon, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and the Ivory Coast among others. Before speculation suggested that China would be getting the handset before the Chinese New year, which is on January the 23rd.

It is thought that the Siri voice assistant feature will have support for Mandarin, which is the most popular form of the Chinese language by March. Hong Kong saw the device become available during the beginning of November, and some branches of China Unicom in China have been taking advance orders for the iPhone 4S for weeks now.

Back in December on the 16th saw the device expanding to a number of other countries that included Brazil and Russia. The iPhone 4S has now become the quickest rollout that Apple has ever achieved with their flagship smartphone, and despite only being an upgraded version of the previous model is selling well.
