Unless youve been hiding under a very large rock for the last few days you will no doubt be aware that Apple has finally announced the iPhone 5. In this post we will look at the key enhancements to help you decide whether or not to upgrade .
The iPhone now comes in matt black with areas of the phone being shiny. This new colour scheme really looks great and is a nice change from the usual all shiny.
The iPhone has been made even thinner, it’s only 7.6mm thick. This means overall the device is now alot lighter only weighing 112 grams.
iPhone 5 comes with an A6 processor. This is almost twice the performance of the A5. This means you can run very high quality games at excellent frame rates.
The overall screen has got taller by 8.6mm. This doesn’t sound like much but it is enough for an extra row of apps on the screen. The resolution has been increased to 1136 x 640 (326ppi).
Apple has finally changed there bottom connector. The new adapter is called “Lighting”. It’s very small and means the device can be thinner. Don’t worry if you have any devices with the old adapter, there is an adapter for backwards compatibility.
Apple has added dual-band wireless connectivity. This means that you can get upto 150Mbps via wifi. If you’re on the go then you can use LTE, apple say they have improved there technology so the wireless won’t drain you’re battery but still offers excellent performance.
Apple has decided to reinvent the earphones. This new design promises to be more comfortable and offer better audio playback.
The video is still 1080p on the back and now features face recognition. The front video is now 720p and comes with a backlight illumination sensor.
The new A6 processor makes the camera more responsive and will react faster.
The battery life in iPhone 5 has been increased by almost 2 hours. This means you get 8 hours browsing, 8 hours talktime, 10 hours video playback and around 4-6 hours of gaming. This is great news as with all this extra power you would expect it to be less.
