Apple iPhone 3GS Specs

iPhone - MB715LL/A - iPhone2,1 - A1303

About This iPhone

The iPhone 3G was an improvement on the original iPhone as it added support for 3G and GPS functionality. Bluetooth had been upgraded from Bluetooth 2.0 to Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and its 2.0-megapixel camera allowed for “geo-tagging” which allowed users to note the location of pictures that were taken. The accelerometer and ambient light features remained while an extra proximity sensor was added as opposed to the single sensor present in the original iPhone. Its qualities might seemingly have faded out in these times of accelerated tech advancement but it was a leading edge device during its introduction to the market.

Storage & Memory

The iPhone 3GS came with a 256 MB RAM and had versions that came with 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB of storage.

    Screen Size and Resolution

    The iPhone 3GS had a 3.5 inch display that supported a native resolution of 320×480 at 163 ppi and a 2.0 megapixel camera that supports geo-tagging.

      OS & Processor

      The iPhone 3GS came with iPhone OS 3.0 for its operating system. It was powered by a single  Samsung ARM Cortex A8 processor with 600 MHz speed.


      The iPhone 3GS was equipped with a Lithium Ion battery that supported up to 5 hours of talk time on 3G or 12 hours of talk time on 2G,  30 hours of audio playback, 9 hours of Internet use on Wi-Fi, 10 hours of video playback and 300 hours of standby time.
