Design, connectors, 4G, features: an overview of the new features on the iPhone 5 and the new OS.
The iPhone 5 has got smaller. The new design of Apple’s flagship product is thinner and lighter, but with a larger 4” display.
The new OS will be available this week for 3GS, 4 and 4S and 5 iPhones, iPad 2 and the new iPad. It boasts a number of improvements for Apple e-devices.
With a number of improvements but no real innovations compared with previous versions, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5 has proved to be something of a disappointment.
Despite this, pre-ordered handsets sold out within just an hour of going on sale (compared with 22 hours for the iPhone 4S), and waiting lists are as long as three weeks.
Before the new model was even officially confirmed, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster predicted record sales: 6-10 million iPhone 5 sold between now and the end of 2012 and 26 million iPhones, (all versions) in Q4.
The world’s number 1 market capitalisation, Apple gets half its revenue from iPhone sales. The launch of the iPhone 5 also caused quite a stir on Wall Street, causing the Apple share to soar 1.38% the day after the keynote, bringing it to record levels – something none of the previous versions ever managed to do.
