    I was just wondering because I never heard about this. Did they ever say anything about that?

    I always thought of it like the "S" in the Porsche Carrera S. The "S" denotes extra performance over the regular Carrera.

    When Phil introduced the 3Gs he said the "S is for Speed"...

    The 's' for the 3Gs and presumably the 4s is for 'speed'

    My guess was S for Second, unless Siri got it right.

    It stands for Same, as in it looks the same as the one before it.

    Search terms I used were...

    what does the s in iphone 4s stand for

    s denotes

    s numerical

    s greek letters

    No answer was forth-coming.

    The more I think about it, the more curious I become.

    Hey, Just heard of a Tragic balloon accident in New Zealand. I thought the guy said Wellington, but not positive. What a terrible story! They also said in was the deadliest air tragedy in NZ history.

    You know, I don't think even Apple knows.

    I just take it to mean Siri. Point blank.

    It just goes back to being able to crawl before you can run. Keeping the same, preserving the life of the current iPhone.

    Making them identical was done on purpose.

    That other smartphone company would have you think it stands for iPhone 4Samsunged.

    Whatever the heck "samsunged" means. Sounds like a disease to me...
