Wow, Apple has announced that the iPhone 4S will offer not only assited GPS but also GLONASS support… wow! This comes via the Mac Rumors blog… From the blog; Apple yesterday quietly updated its iPhone 4S tech specs page to note that the device offers not only Assisted GPS but also GLONASS, the Russian version of GPS. They do note that only the tech specs page on the U.S. site has been updated to mention GLONASS capabilities, with the corresponding page in other iPhone 4S launch countries still listing only Assisted GPS as the device’s satellite location service.
From the specs page under GPS technical Specs:
- Assisted GPS and GLONASS
- Digital compass
