Apple has unveiled the new iPhone, one that comes with a number of upgrades over its predecessors. For starters, the screen of the phone has received a size increase with an elongated 4-inch display that holds 1,136 x 640 pixels. It’s 18% thinner than the predecessor, which puts it at just 7.6 millimeters. iPhone 5 surfs the web much faster with LTE capabilities, the connector has gone shorter and gets a new name, Lightning.
The brain of the new iPhone is a brand new A6 chip which Apple claims is twice as fast in terms of CPU and graphics when compared to its predecessor. Apple is sticking to the same pricing strategy as the iPhone 4; for a two year contract, iPhone 5 16GB is $199, the 32GB is $299 and the 64GB is $399. Pre-orders will begin on Friday, with deliveries following soon afterwards.
