Two further spanners were thrown in the works, firstly when the iPhone 4S was revealed and met with criticism from some who had expected a more radical change to the hardware and then when Apple founder and visionary, Steve Jobs, passed away just after its launch.

Despite all of these potential issues, the iPhone 4S has become the fastest-selling Apple smartphone yet, shipping to four million customers across the world after just 72 hours on sale.

As a result of the strong performance, Apple share prices increased to a high of almost £280 and analysts have pointed out that this means the value has increased by 97 per cent in the past year.

New voice controls, a faster processor and the same smooth touch panel technology make the iPhone 4S a worthy sequel to a game-changing handset.
