Last night Apple introduced the iPhone 5 terminal that millions of people around the globe waited with baited breath, but everyone already knew what Apple was going to present. Everything we've seen on the internet through various rumors was presented tonight by Apple, and probably few people were amazed of the innovation behind this device although it is the fruit of many people in Cupertino. iPhone 5 is the largest iPhone ever made, and below I will discuss in detail about it.
The device has a 4 inch screen with 1136 x 640 resolution, has Retina Display with 326 pixels per inch, so we already knew that Apple will include this in it. The screen is specially made to display images and has better saturation with sRGB rendering, so it will be seen as clearly as possible on it. The screen has a 16:9 format and few applications are compatible with it, but the ones from App Store will work and will be displayed in a frame until the developer will update it. Unfortunately Apple has not solved the problem of scaling applications, but developers should quickly update their applications for the new larger screen.
According to rumors published so far, Apple has included an A6 chip in the new iPhone terminal. The chip comes with a processor that is 2 times faster, provides 2 times better graphics performance and certainly can manage more effectively its energy. The chip is 22% smaller, but offers a better range than the iPhone 4S terminal, users benefit of 8 hours of LTE 3G/4G networks, 10 hours for using Wi-Fi networks and 40 hours listening to music. Apple does not say if the new processor is quad-core or dual-core, but I guess we are talking about a dual-core.
Apple decided that iPhone 5 should keep the resolution of 8 megapixels inside, but included a new image sensor that allows us to make better pictures in low light conditions, has lenses composed of five elements, f/2.4 aperture, backside ilumination, hybrid IR filter, low light dynamic mode, a mode that more accurately aligned lenses, a smart filter and spatial noise reduction. Camera records photos 40% faster than the iPhone 4S, and now contains a feature called Panorama.
In the case of its design, Apple has not deviated greatly from that established in the iPhone 4S, the device retaining much of the same form, but is much thinner, weighing only 112 grams, with a thickness of just 7.6 mm, the terminal is 18% thinner than the iPhone 4S. Metal edges are kept there, but the casing is made of aluminum and glass, the central part is aluminum and the upper is made of glass. In this regard the terminal remains to be chosen by those who were satisfied with the design of the iPhone 4S and not upset by a slight change offered by the new concept.
Although Apple typically emphasizes on a new version of iOS, this time Forstall didn't stayed to much on the stage and quickly introduced the important functions of the operating system. The most important news is Maps, new features of Siri, the application Passbook, Do Not Disturb function, new security settings, possibility to sync tabs in Safari with iCloud and the option to use Safari in fullscreen mode.
According to rumors, Apple shows the new EarPods headphones in which they were under development for more than 3 years. The new headphones design is completely rebuilt, but they are designed to provide quality sound much better and theoretically should sit perfectly in the ears of any user. They are specially designed to direct the sound directly into the ear canal and have special outputs to allow air to enter. The new headphones will be available in Apple store starting today, but they will be supplied with the iPhone 5, iPod Nano and the new iPod Touch.
