Apple's iPhone event was about the iPhone but not the iPhone 5 as had been heavily anticipated. Instead, Apple revealed a significant update to the iPhone 4 called Apple 4S. According to Larry Dignan, the most significant upgrade is the price: Now $199 for the iPhone 4S, $99 for the iPhone 4 and free for the iPhone 3GS.

Here's a quick look at the newest version of Apple's iPhone. And later in the gallery, we'll look at the new iPod lineup.

The price tag of the Apple 4S is the most significant improvement.

The iPhone 4S contains a dual-core A5 chip which will make it 7 times faster than an iPhone 4.

Once a weak spot of iPhones, the new camera will contain new optics, produces 8-megapixel photos, and offers 1080p HD video recording.

The iPod Touch will now be available in white. As seen here, it'll benefit from the iOS 5 update with notifications, among other things.

Starting at $199, the iPod Touch is the least expensive entry point (if you count contract fees) into iOS. Also, apparently filming your friends doing bumper cars has never been as fun! For them...

Nothing new with the Shuffle. Still available for $49.
