The iPhone 5. The most eagerly anticipated device since the development of the lunar rocket. This is the latest, greatest, and best of all the iPhones and has been tagged as the most technologically advanced phone ever made. This is no longer just a want, but is now seen to be a need within the techno savvy world. Apple has truly pushed the bounds of what is to be expected of a GSM device.
This is the thinnest, lightest iPhone ever designed even though the display screen has been lengthened. It's hard to believe a phone so thin could offer so many features: a larger display, a faster chip, the latest wireless technology, an 8MP iSight camera, and more. All in a beautiful aluminium body designed and made with an unprecedented level of precision. iPhone 5 measures a mere 7.6 millimetres thin and weighs just 112 grams. That's 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S. The only way to achieve a design like this is by relentlessly considering (and reconsidering) every single detail - including the details you don't see.
At the core of every iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is iOS. It includes all the built-in apps you use every day and all the intuitive technology - like Multi-Touch and Siri - that makes iPhone so advanced. With every free iOS update comes even more capability for your devices. You'll find the latest version, iOS 6, already installed on iPhone 5. So right out of the box, you get more than 200 new features to make the things you do every day even better.
iPhone 5 features a 4-inch display designed the right way: it's bigger, but it's the same width as iPhone 4S. So everything you've always done with one hand - typing on the keyboard, for instance - you can still do with one hand. On a larger canvas that lets you see more of every web page and gives you more of your inbox, more events on your calendar, even more apps on your Home screen.
And as stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5 gives you 18 percent more pixels for an impressive 1136 x 640 resolution. Colours get a boost, too, with colour saturation that's 44 percent greater than before. So with iPhone 5, the games you play, the words you read, the images you see, and the apps you love look and feel incredibly vivid and lifelike. For big-time entertainment, iPhone 5 lets you watch widescreen HD video in all its glory - without letterboxing.
You rely on your iPhone. So a thin, light design and outstanding battery life are important to you. But so is a fast data connection. LTE wireless technology is built for speed, but adding it to a phone can create bulk and drain battery life quickly. iPhone 5 does LTE the right way - optimized for better battery life and designed for ultrafast connectivity in a thin profile. The very things you want most from your Smartphone.
Faster CPU performance, Faster graphics, With Better Battery Life With the new A6 chip, just about everything you do on iPhone 5 is noticeably faster - up to twice as fast compared with the A5 chip. So apps launch, web pages load, and email attachments appear almost instantly. The A6 chip also offers graphics performance that's up to twice as fast as the A5. So you can power through graphics-intensive apps and games. And enjoy higher frame rates for smoother, more realistic game play. Not only is the A6 chip custom designed to be fast, it's custom designed to work with iOS 6 to be extremely power efficient. So even at its accelerated speed, iPhone 5 has more than enough battery power to last throughout the day - up to 8 hours of browsing on a cellular connection, up to 8 hours of talk time, and up to 10 hours of video playback time. Panorama.
Everything that made the iSight camera in iPhone 4S the world's favourite is now on iPhone 5 - and then some. The new panorama feature lets you capture everything from a family reunion group photo to a jaw-dropping shot of the Grand Canyon. With one smooth motion you can shoot up to an impressive 240 degrees. The gyroscope, A6 chip, and Camera app work together to create one seamless, high-resolution panorama up to 28 megapixels.
FaceTime HD camera. You use the front-facing camera on iPhone 5 to make FaceTime video calls. And now those calls can happen over a cellular connection if Wi-Fi isn't available. The quality of FaceTime video calls is so surprising, it's as if you're in the same room with whoever's on the other end. You can also use the front camera for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video.
