Apple SVP - Worldwide Marketing Philip Schiller said, ?iPhone 5 is the most beautiful consumer device that we?ve ever created. We?ve packed an amazing amount of innovation and advanced technology into a thin and light, jewel-like device with a stunning 4-inch Retina display, blazing fast A6 chip, ultrafast wireless, even longer battery life; and we think customers are going to love it.?


iPhone has a 7.6 mm anodised aluminum body that is 18 per cent thinner and 20 per cent lighter than iPhone 4S. The new 4-inch Retina display delivers more pixels than iPhone 4S. It supports ultrafast wireless standards including LTE and DC-HSDPA. It features dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi support for a wireless experience up to 150 Mbps.


The A6 chip was designed by Apple to maximise performance and power efficiency to support all the incredible new features in iPhone 5, including the new 4-inch Retina display?all while delivering even better battery life.


The 8 megapixel iSight camera redesigned with ?incredible? optical performance, yet it?s 25 per cent smaller than the camera in iPhone 4S.


The new camera features a sapphire crystal lens cover that is thinner and more durable than standard glass with the ability to provide crystal clear images. The new panorama feature lets capture images of up to 28 megapixels by moving the camera across a scene in one smooth motion.


New video features include improved stabilisation, video face detection for up to 10 faces and the ability to take still photos as you record.

It features the new Lightning connector that is smaller, smarter and more durable than the previous connector. The all-digital Lightning connector features an adaptive interface that uses only the signals that each accessory requires, and it?s reversible so one can instantly connect to his/her accessories.
