The iPhone 5 is now official. Apple has just unveiled its most latest iPhone to date.
As it turned out all the previous leaks of images and specs were on the spot. The Apple iPhone 5 features a 4-inch Retina display with a resolution of 1136x640 pixels (that's 326ppi), 100Mb LTE connectivity, dual-band Wi-Fi. The new iPhone is thinner - 7.6mm and lighter - 112 grams than its 4S counterpart.
The iPhone 5 runs on the Apple's latest A6 chipset, which is said to offer 2x faster processor and graphics performance.
There is still no word on the number of cores and clock speeds though.
The camera features the same 8megapixel sensor as the on on the iPhone 4S, but the sensor is 25% smaller this time. There is a newly announced panorama mode, which obviously stitches together full res photos as the sample showcased had 28megapixel resolution.
The Apple iPhone 5 also comes with an upgraded front-facing camera, which now supports 720p video recording.
The new specs sheet features three microphones, noise-cancelling earpiece, smaller speaker and brand-new Lightning connector. The latter is 80% smaller, has 8 pins and is reversible. An adapter for the old 30-pin cables has been announced as well.
The iPhone 5 is running on iOS 6. Apple hasn't announced any new and unseen iOS feature yet, so we assume you've probably know everything by now. Anyway, you are welcome to check out our iOS 6 extended preview here.
The pre-orders for the iPhone 5 starts on September 14.
The couriers will be knocking on your doors as early as September 21 if you live in USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Singapore or Hong Kong. More countries will join these on September 28. Until the end of the year the iPhone 5 markets number will grow up to 100.
With the iPhone 5 joining the gang, the iPhone 3GS is officially gone. The 4 and 4S models will be still available and on a lower price.
Finally, the iOS 6 free update will hit the fourth generation iPhone on September 19.
