Apple iPhone 4S

It's no secret Apple's iPhone 4S is the most sought-after consumer electronics device in the world. This is for a good reason. The smartphone features Apple's Retina Display, the Siri virtual personal assistant and a starting price of $199 with a two-year agreement that should make just about any Apple fan happy.
Apple products are some of the most popular in the world. People from the United States to China to Europe are chomping at the bit to get their hands on the latest iPhones, iPads and Macs. And Apple, loving how much cash it generates each quarter, is happy to oblige them with some of the top products on the market. There was a time when Apple wasn't this popular. Back when Steve Jobs took over the company for the second time in the 1990s, there was some concern that the end was near for Apple. The company's financials were in the gutter, shareholders were fleeing at an alarming rate, and it seemed a sale would be the only way to salvage the prominent brand. But with some smart product launches and even smarter business decisions, Steve Jobs resurrected Apple. And now, just months after the visionary's death, his company is the most valuable in the world, its products most desired and its opportunities for growth are greater than all others. That growth opportunity is due mainly to Apple fans. If they're anything, Apple fans are loyal, and they wouldn't even think of buying a product from any other company. For new fans, however, there is a period of needing to learn the ropes and determining what products to buy. Luckily for those folks, we have you covered. Here's a cheat sheet to let you know which Apple products every big fan should use.
