Top 15 Things To Know About Apple iPhone 5

 

1. Physical specifications – It’s thinner than the previous generation: 18 percent thinner, which puts it at 0.29 inches (7.6 millimeter). They are claiming this is the world’s thinnest smartphone. It’s actually the world’s thinnest LTE smartphone.

2. It’s also 20 percent lighter than the current iPhone, just 3.95 ounces (112 grams). It comes in black and white models.

3. The screen – Apple claims that the new 16:9 4-inch panoramic screen has 44 percent more saturation than the iPhone, which makes the display full sRGB. The display has its touchscreen sensor built-in

4. Connectivity – As expected, it uses LTE connectivity, so it will be much faster that the current iPhone 4S. It supports all the standards needed for all carriers: HSPA+, DC-HSDPA and LTE. Apple says that their single-chip solution works everywhere.

5. Speed: The iPhone 5 also has dual-channel 5GHz Wi-Fi—aka 802.11N. That means a 150Mbps maximum connectivity speed.

6. Brains It also has a new CPU, the A6—which Apple claims is 2 times faster than the current iPhone 4S both in CPU and graphics. In real life, they claim it loads web pages 2.1 times as fast.

7. Battery life – If true, this is impressive: 8 hours of 3G talk time, 8 hours of LTE browsing, 10 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 30 hours of video and 225 hours of standby.

8. Camera features – On paper, it’s better than the one in iPhone 4S with a new dynamic low light mode too and a sapphire crystal. Sapphire crystal is the hardest thing you can get this side of a diamond.


Here’s an image taken with the new iPhone, which Apple claims it’s completely unretouched:

 

9. The image capture is also faster: 40 percent, they say. The iPhone 4S camera is now quite fast, so it will be interesting to see how this feels. Certainly, there’s not such a thing as fast enough when it comes to taking photos.

10. Panorama mode They have also added a new capture mode called panorama. It doesn’t require you to stitch photos one by one: just pan the phone and it will automatically capture a panorama for you. Even if you can’t hold it steady, iPhone 5 is smart, using its gyroscope to correct for any variation in motion and make a perfect panorama. It also gets rid of any moving objects, they say.

11. Video face detection Like the previous iPhone, this one has 1080p FullHD capture. They claim they have improved the image stabilization in this version, added face detection (so it will be able to tag people automatically in videos) and, this is good, it will allow you to take full still photos while recording video.

12. Front FaceTime camera They have also made the 720p front camera better with a new backside illuminated sensor. It also has face detection and—at last—the operating system will enable FaceTime over cellular.

13. Audio Apple has also upgraded all the audio: the microphones, the built-in speakers and the earbuds, now called EarPods.

  • It now has three microphones—on the front, back and bottom. These will improve the quality of your voice calls—whoever calls anymore—and sound recordings.
  • The speakers have much better quality now, going from three to five magnet transducers, which will result in a clearer, richer sound.
  • They have also improved the quality of voice calls.

 

14. New Dock connector: Lightning It’s now much smaller. Apple calls it Lightning (a name play of their other connector technology: Thunderbolt). It’s all digital and has 8 connectors.

  • They best thing about the new connector, however, is that it is reversible. This may seem stupid, but being able to connect your cable no matter of the orientation will protect humanity against the 529th Article of Murphy’s Law: “Thou will always try to connect your iPhone cable on the wrong side.”

15. Price and availability They are keeping exactly the same prices as the previous generation. The iPhone 5 16GB is $199, the 32GB is $299 and the 64GB is $399, all with a two-year contract.

Oh, and if that’s still too expensive for you: the iPhone 4S is now $99 with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 will be free with the same contract.

 

 

Top 9 Things To Know About IOS 6

 

 

1. iMessage: With the latest iOS 6 beta, Apple quietly introduced the ability to send, receive and sync iMessages between multiple devices, even if its sent to your phone number.

 

2. Wi-Fi + Cellular: A new secret little feature in iOS 6 is the ability to keep your cellular data alive if there’s no internet available on a wi-fi network you might be connected to.

 

3. Siri: The search functionality of Siri has been greatly expanded to fetch sports scores, list movie times and book tables at restaurants. It’s almost to the point where it serves some practical function in our lives.

 

4. Maps: Gone are Google Maps. In its place is Apple’s own home-cooked Maps app, complete with data from TomTom. From what we’ve seen so far, it’s not a finished product quite yet, but the addition of 3D maps and turn-by-turn navigation are welcome additions to be sure.

 

5. Passbook: Apple’s answer to Google Wallet and Pay With Square is Passbook. It will store your credit card data, customer rewards cards, coupons and plane tickets. And either with the use of a QR code or bluetooth, merchants can collect your payment info and send you on your way.

 

6. Facebook: Like being able to Tweet from anywhere in iOS? You can do the same with Facebook now. And as an added bonus, you can update Facebook and Twitter straight from notification center.

 

7. Facetime over 3G: Like Facetiming on the go? If you do, you can now do it over 3G without needing a wi-fi connection. Just as long as you’re not on AT&T.

 

8. iCloud Tabs: iCloud tabs is a nice little feature that will allow you to access open Safari tabs on other iCloud connected devices. Pages viewed on iPhones, iPads, MacBooks (running Mountain Lion) can all be accessed from any device. A bit overdue, perhaps, but a welcome feature nonetheless.

 

9. YouTube: Apple’s baked-in YouTube app is no longer available in iOS. Be sure to download Google’s standalone app if you don’t want to view YouTube vids in Safari.
