    Apple iPhone 5 unveiled with taller screen and 4G
    The device's new size allows it to display an extra row of app icons on its home screen.

    The firm said it was 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the iPhone 4S. The screen measures 4in (10.2cm) which is still smaller than rival devices from Samsung, Nokia, Motorola and HTC.

    It said it would work on Everything Everywhere's (EE) 4G LTE network in the UK.

    Apple said the larger screen could still be easily operated with one hand



    Apple has also improved the device's battery life and updated both of its cameras, giving its front camera 720p HD video. The company also announced a smaller dock connector for the device and a new cable ch
    arger named Lightning that is 80% smaller than its predecessor.

    Siri got a makeover as well, and can now tell users the scores of sports games and post status updates to Facebook.

    The iPhone 5's dock connector has also been made smaller.

    There’s also a hugely improved version of Siri, the voice recognition program for the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and the most recent iPad. Siri can now respond to questions asking it to find stores in the UK, and tell you distances between towns, though whether it will be smart enough to know the time it’ll take to get from Land’s End to John O’Groats remains to be seen. It’s very well informed about movies and some – US-oriented – sports.

    Faster speeds
    The new screen offers a 16:9 ratio, matching that of widescreen televisions.

    Phil Schiller - Apple's vice president of worldwide marketing, who unveiled the device - said existing apps would be shown with black borders until developers updated their products.

    The handset also features a new Apple-designed chip, called the A6. Mr Schiller suggested this made it twice as powerful as the earlier model.

    The camera is an eight megapixel model - the same as in the iPhone 4S, and a lower specification than LG and Sony's most recent devices.

    However, Mr Schiller said the equipment and associated software meant the iPhone would create better photographs in low light than before.

    The handset also uses a new, smaller, socket for its charger. This means owners will need to use an adapter to plug the device into existing speakers and other equipment.

    In addition it does not include NFC (near field communication) technology meaning the device will not be able to make touchless payments.

    It will be sold with either 16 gigabytes, 32GB or 64GB of storage, with prices ranging from $199 to $399 (£123 to £248) in the US with a two-year contract.



    In addition to launching the new model, Apple will continue to ship versions of the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4, but is phasing out 2009's iPhone 3GS.

    Okey here is what i think

    Its great, would change it for my Iphone 4S hehe
    Pretty like part for super fast speed, and it will be awesome for photographers.
    Battery life is great, but i want to see how long it can last.
    Super high quality, thats awesome, even iphone 4S has great quality, dont know how it will look on iphone 5, but it must be outstanding

    But overall, i can say its great , just like all apple products, i love them and i love their quality. Even samsungs, nokias etc dont stand near them.

    But still , if price is like $100 more then iphone 4S then its good. if more then i dont know.

    Its seems so awesome, but actually there isnt big changes.

    P.S I Love APPLE
