Apple starts selling latest iPhone on Friday

Friday, October 14, 2011 | 7:31 a.m. CDT; updated 9:30 a.m. CDT, Friday, October 14, 2011

NEW YORK — The new iPhone is now available in stores.

Apple Inc. started selling the iPhone 4S in the U.S. at 8 a.m. in each time zone. Apple stores are selling them, as are AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless stores. Some Best Buy, Target and Walmart stores and authorized resellers are also carrying the phones.

The base model of the iPhone 4S costs $199 with a two-year contract. Customers have a choice of white or black.

The phone — Apple's fifth — has a faster processor and an improved camera compared to last year's model. However, some customers and investors were disappointed that Apple didn't launch a more radical new model. It's been more than a year since Apple's previous model was released.
