Apple announces launch of iPhone 5

MUMBAI: Apple has announced the launch of iPhone5, which according to the company is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, redesigned to feature a new 4-inch Retina display. It has an Apple-designed A6 chip for fast performance and “ultrafast” wireless technology.


It comes with iOS 6, an 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 organisation, and even more Siri features and languages.


iPhone 5 will be available in the US for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB model. It will be available from the Apple Online Store, Apple’s retail stores, and through AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless and select Apple Authorised Resellers.


iPhone 5 will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the UK on Friday, September 21, and customers can pre-order their iPhone 5 beginning 14 September.
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. A new FaceTime HD front facing camera makes FaceTime calls incredibly clear and can also be used for self portraits and recording 720p HD video. iPhone 5 also allows users to share photos with friends and family using iCloud’s Shared Photo Streams.


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.


iPhone 5 introduces new enhanced audio features including a new beam-forming, directional microphone system for higher quality sound, while background noise fades away with new noise canceling technology. It includes support for cellular wideband audio for crisper word clarity and more natural sounding speech.


Wideband audio will be supported by over 20 carriers worldwide at launch. iPhone 5 comes with the new Apple EarPods featuring a breakthrough design for a more natural fit and increased durability, and an incredible acoustic quality typically reserved for higher-end earphones.


iPhone 5 will roll out worldwide to 22 more countries on 28 September, including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
