Every time Apple makes an announcement, the whole world listens. And every time they release a product, it becomes a trend. The release of iPhone 5 is the current headline today and everybody is curious and excited, about what new thing Apple has to offer.
The iPhone 5, released last September 12th, offers new features and improvements from its predecessors.
What average users can enjoy
With every phone as of late saying bigger is better, the iPhone 5 knew it had to follow suit. With its larger screen, users can enjoy watching videos and viewing pictures. Compared to the previous models, iPhone 5 features a 4-inch display adds another row of icons on the home screen. The display however has the same width as other iPhone models.
The iPhone 5 is also noticeably thinner, with 7.6mm and a weight of 112g. Although it is bigger in size compared to the previous models, it is thinner and lighter. Other noticeable features are its colors. It comes in two-tone colors of white and silver, and black and slate. The iPhone 5 is encased with glass and aluminum, which gives a more comfortable feel and a high-tech appearance.
What techies will enjoy
The iPhone 5 features a new Apple A6. It is much faster (twice the speed) and has more graphics power. Although the A6 is twice as powerful, it consumes less power and smaller in size.
Aside from the new A6, iPhone 5’s newest feature is its iOS 6, the newest version of Apple’s mobile OS. It contains Apple’s new e-tickets app, Passbook, FaceTime, and other Apple’s exclusive mobile apps.
The iPhone 5 is the only iPhone that is 4G.
Other new features of the iPhone 5 are its smaller camera while maintaining its 8 megapixel sensor. It also features new headphones, which are called EarPods. Apple says that the Earpods are built to be more durable and fit better into ears.
So would we buy it?
We think the iPhone 5 seems to be a great device and with Apple’s seduction of the enterprise crowd any iPhone is a great product. The new features and improvements; the larger screen, thickness, speed, the new iOS, and longer battery life, may not be enough to run out and outfit the whole staff with new phones but it is worth an upgrade when older phones are due. Remember, when purchasing, if you have any accessories, they will need to be replaced as well (or you will need the adapter which was just announced will not come with the phone). While Apple may not have introduced something totally different or mind-boggling innovation, an upgrade can still take advantage of its speed and longer battery life for professional use.
