FINALLY! We get a glimpse of the I-phone 5 and what it will consist of. The annoying part is that all this great news comes when I’m “financially unstable” lol Who wants to loan me the money for one?
Here’s the details from TMZ, which are a bunch of emails from the people at Apple:
Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 10:26 AM
Subject: New iPhone 5 – images and details
Larger Screen – another row of apps! – 4-inch screen, 5 rows of apps instead of 4, 326ppi Retina display (1136×640 resolution) – 44% better color saturation
Ultrafast wireless (802.11n at up to 150Mbps) and LTE (4G speed with a max of 100Mbps)
Partially metal back – glass an aluminum
Thinnest and lightest – 18% thinner (7.6mm), 20% lighter (112 grams)
“It’s the most beautiful product we have ever made, bar none.”
Available on Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon, all with 4G LTE
A6 chip runs it – fastest yet – 2x faster than iPhone 4S’s A5 chip, also more energy-efficient

Battery life improved – 8 hours of talk or browsing time on 3G or LTE, 10 hours on WiFi
Same general camera specs as 4S but 40% faster, with better low-light performance for those club nights, lens cover is sapphire lens crystal to be more durable and clear, ability to take 28-megapixel panorama pictures. Takes better videos too, of course. Front-facing camera improved, can do FaceTime over regular network and not just Wi-Fi now.
Improved microphones and noise cancelation for clearer calls
NEW CONNECTOR CALLED “LIGHTNING” (a play on Thunderbolt, their desktop connection system) – meaning your current accessories may not work with it. But it’s 80% smaller. Yay? However, there is an adaptor for that (which will probably cost you).
iOS6: New Maps application (no longer Google Maps)
…still no price or release date.
