iPhone 5 Finally Arrives

iPhone 5 Finally Arrives

There has been lots of anticipation and speculation of the long awaited iPhone 5. It has finally arrived and now the main question is whether is worth that upgrade? While Apple does a great job by keeping the cutting edge, finally the rumors can be put to rest. Lets take a deeper look into some of the changes and features that the iPhone 5 has undergo.

Design

For starters the iPhone 5 has been redesigned with a 4 inch 16.9 ratio widescreen making it ½ inch longer than the 4s, but has maintained the same width. In addition it is 18% thinner than the 4S, giving the phone a sleeker more ergonomically friendly design. With the new changes to the iPhone 5, the device will now be 20% lighter to accommodate the new sleek design.

New Charging Connector

This is arguably one of the biggest changes to the iPhone line since it was introduce in 2003. The new connector dock has been changed from the original 30-pin connector to an 80% smaller upgrade called “Lightning”, which is not only smaller, but also reversible so it can be plugged in forwards or backwards. Although the connector has made improvements, there are still many users in iPhoneland that have numerous accessories that require the old connector. Apple has not forgot that and has developed an adapter that is fitted to work with most iPhone accessories.

Processing Power

Many people predicted the iPhone 5 to be equip with an A5 processor, seeing as the 4S used the A4. Instead Apple decided to take it to the next level and fit the new phone with an A6 Processor making the iPhone 5 up to 40% faster.  Applications will now be running seamlessly through this faster processor, giving users spectacular graphics and great capabilities.

Camera

Full 1080p HD has finally made it to the iPhone. With a 25% smaller camera, which has not only gotten smaller, but has improved low light processing, increased stability technology, added panoramic picture capabilities and is now able to take video and still pictures simultaneously. The HD capabilities stretch into Facetime, although the front facing camera is only 720p, but still making great improvement to Facetime.

LTE Network & Battery

The new iPhone with now be running on the LTE networks ranging from AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint making it fully 4G capable and faster than ever. With that being said Apple states the 4G capabilities will have little to no effect on battery life. So all of those worries about loosing battery life can be put to rest.

IOS 6

It is said that there are up to 200 changes on the new IOS 6 operating system. One of the most talked about changes is the new turn-by-turn navigation using Apples own maps, in addition to a 3D bird’s eye view.
