Following months of speculation, leaks and comparisons Apple has officially taken the wraps off of the next iPhone. The iPhone 5 (yes, we are sticking with numbers) will feature LTE support for some of the fastest wireless speeds in the world, a 4” retina display (326ppi, with a resolution of 1136×640) rivaling most competitors, and much more–including:
- 7.6mm (18% thinner than the 4S)
- 112grams (20% lighter than the 4S)
- Closer to 16:9 Aspect Ratio (for better video viewing)
- Touch integrated into the display for more accuracy
- GPRS, EDGE, EV-DO, HSPA, HSPA+, DC-HSDPA and LTE
- 802.11a/b/g/n and 802.11n 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wireless
- Apple’s A6 Chip (2x faster CPU and 2x faster Graphics)
All native iOS apps have been updated to support the new resolution including iPhoto,iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, etc. Existing apps will run letter boxed, with the exception of apps created developers who have had early access (CNN, OpenTable and others).
More as this develops.
