The new Apple iPhone 5 flaunts an amazingly sleek design that lets you benefit from a larger display and faster performance, super-fast wireless that doesn’t sacrifice battery life, and new headphones that are designed to fit comfortably and sound fantastic. This iPhone had so much put into it so you can get even more out of it.
Slim and sleek.
With a larger display, a faster chip, the latest wireless technology, an 8MP iSight camera and more all built into a gorgeous aluminium body, the iPhone 5 is the epitome of precision and performance. At 7.6mm thin and 112 grams, the iPhone 5 is 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the iPhone 4s.
More to see, without the bulk.
Everything you usually do one-handed – typing on the keyboard, for example, you can still do on the iPhone 5. The larger display isn’t larger for large’s sake. It is anything but oversized, awkward, and hard to use. Designed with the same width as the iPhone 4s, the larger 4” display on the iPhone 5 lets you see more of everything onscreen.
Vibrant Retina Display.
An impressive 326 pixels per inch, 1136-640 resolution and 44% colour saturation boost gives you an impressive Retina Display on the iPhone 5. The best part? It is impressiveness you can touch. This is so everything you do you with your iPhone 5, everything you depend on it for, be it entertainment or work, will be an immersive experience.
LTE. The right way.
Having fast data connection is just as important as having a lightweight phone that has an outstanding battery life. iPhone 5 sports LTE wireless technology the right way – LTE is built for speed and can drain battery life quickly when added to a phone, besides creating bulk. Optimised in a thin profile, the iPhone gives you the connectivity you need from your smartphone, with better battery life! Moreover, dual-band 802.11n wireless connectivity enhances your Wi-Fi experience with speeds up to 150Mbps.
Ever the performer.
The new A6 chip gives the iPhone 5 the power to do everything twice as fast and almost instantly compared with the A5 chip. And this includes launching apps, loading pages and opening email attachments. Enjoy more realistic gameplay with high frame rates, made possible thanks to the power of the A6 chip’s graphics performance. Even at its accelerated speed, the iPhone 5’s battery lasts throughout the day.
Knowing that headphones fit differently on different people, Apple designers and engineers tested prototype after prototype with the goal of creating headphones that fit everyone. The result is the Apple EarPods. The all-new earbud headphones were designed to rest comfortably in your ears and provide you with great quality sound, unlike anything you’ve ever heard or seen. Three microphones – one on the front, one on the back and one at the bottom work together to achieve beamforming, which helps focus sound and generate clearer audio.
Photos taken with the iPhone make it hard to believe they were even taken with a mobile phone in the first place. The world’s favourite camera, the iSight camera now boasts a new panorama feature that lets you capture 240 degrees of the scene. All this is thanks to the gyroscope, the A6 chip and Camera app that work together to create a seamless, hi-res panorama.
Even better features.
Snap more photos more clearly and with more detail than ever before. With improved low-light performance, 40% faster photo taking, better noise reduction, 1080p Full HD video recording, image stabilisation and face detection, the Camera app in the iPhone 5 is what you need to capture the world as you see it. It doesn’t even stop there! Make FaceTime video, with surprisingly high quality resolution calls over a cellular connection or Wi-Fi with the front-facing camera.
Another pivotal change featured by the iPhone 5 is the replacement of the 30-pin connector. The new Lightning connector is an eight-signal digital design that is more durable than the 30-pin connector, and reversible!
