It has been a week since Apple announced the new iPhone 5, and people still cannot stop talking about it. There was a lot of anticipation that led up to last Wednesday’s announcement about of this years “it” device, and after hearing all about the new iPhone 5 features, we can understand why.
First, Apple updated the design of the iPhone by making it 20% lighter and 18% faster with a 4-inch retina display that gives a larger and brighter image of anything that crosses your screen. They also improved the performance by including an A6 chip that is 2x faster than the previous A5 chip, allowing for faster graphics and even better battery life due to it’s tremendous power efficiency. The wireless performance was also updated to include LTE wireless connection for ultra fast data retrieval.
It is important to note the improvements to the audio and camera as well. Not only has Apple enhanced the audio of the new iPhone 5 with three microphones, but it has also created new earpods that fit more comfortably for more people and produce higher quality sound. The new iSight camera features the ability to take panoramic images and allows for 40 percent faster camera capture speed and improved low-light performance.
Finally, the updated iO6 operating system highlights improvements to built-in apps such as Siri, now able to give you sport scores and make dinner reservations, Maps, which now has 3D interactive views with the Flyover option and turn-by-turn navigation, and FaceTime, which now allows you to chat face to face via a WiFi or cellular connection.
