The new iPhone is here! The new iPhone is here! As most of you probably know from following the slew of technoblog updates and watching the Jony Ive video the iPhone 5 was officially launched by Apple today during Tim Cook’s keynote speech. Here are the highlights in case you missed it:
Larger hi-resolution display! For the first time since the iPhone’s initial launch the Apple design team has increased the size of the display to four inches. It’s now taller for increased iOS content space, or wider for watching video. It’s still the prettiest display available on a phone.
Increased data speeds! I know, I know. LTE isn’t exactly new by this point and the iPhone 4S probably should have had it integrated already, but it’s nice to see Apple delivering where consumers were demanding it. Also, WiFi is going to attain 802.11n speeds of up to 150Mbps.
A6 Chip! Super fast processing, up to twice as fast as its predecessor according to Apple. Moving on.
8 Megapixel camera and Panorama! Check out the photos for yourself.
Maps! Siri! iOS 6! The maps look good, and I can’t wait to play around with the new iOS. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more over the next few weeks about how smoothly the new software works with the new design. And if people are really as bothered by the new dock connector as was expected. So long, 30 pins.
If you haven’t watched the keynote, check it out soon when Apple posts the whole thing. Have a great week everyone, and get yourself in line for the new toy.
