iPhone 5 Official Release

iPhone 5 Official Release So As i mentioned yesterday the new iPhone 5 will be available on the 21st of September for us here in the land of OZ and most of Asia , the UK and of course the USA.

Below is an Excerpt from the Apple website confirming all of the new features and ecaxtly what to expect from the new iPhone.

Apple® today announced iPhone® 5, the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning new 4-inch Retina™ display; an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance; and ultrafast wireless technology*—all while delivering even better battery life.** iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features including: the all new Maps app with Apple-designed cartography and turn-by-turn navigation; Facebook integration; Passbook® organization; and even more Siri® features and languages.

iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world, with an all-new 7.6 mm anodized aluminum body that is 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than iPhone 4S. Designed with an unprecedented level of precision, iPhone 5 combines an anodized aluminum body with diamond cut chamfered edges and glass inlays for a truly incredible fit and finish.

The new 4-inch Retina display on iPhone 5 delivers even more pixels than iPhone 4S, making the already incredible Retina display even better. By making the screen taller, not wider, iPhone 5 is just as easy to use with one hand so you can tap, type and scroll the same way you always have, while enjoying even more of your content including amazing apps optimized for the larger Retina display, widescreen HD video, a full five days of your Calendar and more of every web page.

iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new user features including: an all new Maps app with Apple-designed cartography, turn-by-turn navigation and an amazing new Flyover™ view; Facebook integration for Contacts and Calendar, with the ability to post directly from Notification Center; Passbook, the simplest way to get all your passes in one place; new Siri features, including support for more languages, easy access to sports scores, restaurant recommendations and movie listings;***** Siri and Facebook-enabled apps like Photos, Safari® and Maps; and Shared Photo Streams via iCloud®.
While most of us will have to wait for our contracts to be up for renewal before we get our hands on the new iPhone 5, im sure that there will still be quite a lot of purchase's out of contract and lots of Iphone 4s on ebay very soon.

So there is a new resolution screen (what does this mean for our apps) most of the apps on the App Store will already be updated to accomodate the new screen resolution and for those that havent been already updated there will be a black border around the app to fill the gap.

Will i be getting a new iPhone 5, probably not unless i can get enough money to buy one outright as ive still got a way to go on my current contract, although i would love to have one in my hand come the 21st september, im thinking that just like the iPhone 4s there is going to be some teething issues so its always better to wait for a few months and let the dust settle.
But will will just have to wait and see....
