The Design - sleeker, slender, lighter
iPhone 5 is made of aluminum and is astonishingly slim. It is 7.6 mm thick and weighs no more than 112 grams, which makes it 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than its predecessor. In spite of this thin design, iPhone 5 manages to bring to the table a volley of never before seen features.
The Display - bigger and better
Apple's iPhone 5 is 9 mm taller than iPhone 4S and has a bigger display (4-inch Retina). This makes it perfect for typing, viewing graphics, browsing websites, uploading better wallpapers, enjoying various apps and much more. Also, just because it has a bigger display, the device retains the same sophisticated look and feel.
Additionally, it comes with more pixels, which give a stunning 1136x640 resolution and enhanced color saturation (44 percent more). This means users will enjoy all sorts of visual media like - HD videos, images or even text files on its amazing display screen. I am already looking forward to playing my favorite game on it!
The new A6 processor: For a rapid performance
iPhone 5 comes with the A6 processor, which is way more faster than A5. So, all the tasks, which you perform on iPhone 5, will be automatically faster - be it running an app, loading web pages or uploading or viewing email attachments. Additionally, the chip enhances the graphics performance, which makes your images, photos, games or videos more fun to view and use on this device. Can it get any better than this? I don't think so!
iOS 6 - the enhanced OS
iOS 6 is the operating system in iPhone 5. It adds features to this device like - better Siri, Facebook integration, the brand new Apple maps app, shared photo streams and other features, which are too long to be listed here. Together with the A6 chip, the iOS 6 operating system makes iPhone 5 one of the most powerful smartphones in the market.
An improved battery life
iPhone 5 is more power efficient than the iPhone 4S. It has sufficient battery life to give you up to 8 hours of browsing activity, 8 hours of talk time and up to 10 hours of video playback time. Fair enough.
Better audio capabilities
iPhone 5 may come with a number of features, but being a music buff, I like what Apple did with its audio system.
It not only provided ergonomically tested, inventive headphones called 'EarPods' for an improved audio experience, but also introduced three mics located at - front, back and bottom of the device. These front and back mics help get a clearer audio of the source through a technique called Beamforming. This along with a new 'noise-cancellation' technology reduces background noise. This means, there will be no more inaudible, unclear sounds from the other end.
Be ready for clearer recordings, better music experience and natural voice calls.
Faster network connectivity
iPhone 5 supports more number of networks and gives users to download, browse or stream content at lightning fast speeds. It consists of Dual-band 802.11n wireless connectivity for an enhanced Wi-Fi (up to 150 Mbps). However, the best thing is that iPhone 5 is optimized with 4G LTE, for superfast connectivity.
One of the main factors which account for iPhone 5's lightness of being is the replacement of the old 30-pin connector with the brand new Lightning Connector. This new type of connector is smaller, smarter and features an all-digital 8 signal design. This makes it more durable than the 30-pin connector and makes the device lighter.
To sum it up
These are the main features and functionality of the recently launched iPhone 5. So, if you are a developer, I am sure you'd definitely use these features to your advantage. For instance, you can give a thought to enterprise iPhone app development, which is in demand these days and win over your clients and the end-users.
