iPhone 5 is here!

By now I’m sure you all know – the iPhone 5 finally made it to the market!

After a lot of hype and deliberation we finally got to see the newest addition to the Apple line up, and we were quite impressed. I know, there is a lot of talk out there about it not being much different from the iPhone 4 aside from the length of the iPhone 5… but let’s think about it for a minute.

First off – the iPhone 4s was a great device, or did we all forget? I mean – the 4s wasn’t MUCH better than the 4 but it was better. That same trend happens with the iPhone 5. So just to point out a couple of the major differences I’ll list them out for you below. These are just the MAJOR differences because if you are an iPhone 4s or iPhone 4 user you won’t notice a LOT of difference in the speed of the device because those devices are already equipped with good processors…

So here’s what you’ll notice on the “surface”:

iphone 5 comparison- The length of the phone! Yeah, as I’m sure you’ve seen by now the new iPhone 5 is a bit “taller” than the other devices. The reason for this addition in height is simple and practical… it’s because you can still use the entire device with one hand. Take, for example, the Samsung Galaxy S3 – it’s screen is a lot bigger than the iPhone but you can’t reach both of the corners of the phone with the thumb you hold the phone with meaning you might not be able to do everything using just one hand.

Apple wanted you to be able to use this device with just one hand… kind of the idea behind all handhelds really. But Apple has a knack for doing practical things with their devices and not going for the “ultra popular” option. I think this gives the iPhone 5 a nice feel and doesn’t add any extra bulk to my pocket either which is nice.

iphone5 bezel- Outer bezel. People are raving about this new design they used on the iPhone 5. They sort of beveled the edges which gives it a really nice look and makes it a bit more practical because those square edges on the previous 4 and 4s model never did anyone any favors and ended up getting scratched in my experience.


iphone 5 headphones- The Headphones go on the BOTTOM! I know this might now SOUND like a big deal but it is if you like to run with your phone as your music assistant or to track your distance. It was terribly annoying when you had the older models in your arm band and wanted to change songs but couldn’t see the track because it was upside down. So the new iPhone 5 fixes that by putting the headphone jack on the bottom. I think they also did this because when you are just putting it in your pocket this will make the iPhone 5 come out of your pocket in the correct justification for you to use it and not upside down.

- As you can also see above – there is a new charger plug. No more bulky, half in and half out, sometimes upside down 32 pin charger. They opted to go with a more “future friendly” option which allows the charger cable to go in either way (upside down no longer an issue). It’s also more of an optic charger so you’ll just realize a better connection between the device and the power source. This is a BIG change in the iPhone work with the iPhone 5. There were a LOT of people, including myself, who weren’t happy with this when we heard about it. I was going to have to get all new accessories, new charger cables, new everything! Well – still do… but I love the iPhone 5 so it’s worth it and I didn’t have that many “special” accessories anyways.

Those are the biggest changes in my eyes – I think it’s worth getting the iPhone 5. A lot of people ask me – “Should I get this one or wait till the next one?”. I like to tell people to get this phone – it’s awesome and the body won’t change again for a long time so why not? The speed can’t get much faster, and the other features will be small in nature as you’ll always get the OS upgrades when they come out anyways. I won’t be going to the iPhone 6 if it does come out… I’ll stick to iPhone 5.


June 15th Possible Release Date For iPhone 5?

This information is not yet verified but according to some other sources, there is speculation that the unveiling will be held on the last day of Apple’s annual developers conference, the 2012 WWDC. The weeklong event starts June 11 and ends on June 15.

The rollout of the tech giant’s upcoming platform, the iOS 6, may be done on June 11. According to sources, new Apple platforms were always released during the WWDC conferences and this time around, the next-gen iPhone 5 may join the launch. The summer release date could be possible, following reports of a lot of hiring at China’s Foxconn. The plant rumored to be gearing up for the assembly of a over a million new iPhone units, to be ready in a couple of months. The power chip of the next iPhone is already confirmed to be in production under Texas Instruments.

The iPhone 5 may likely be the same size of its predecessor the iPhone 4, but with LTE-connectivity as the New iPad already has this feature. It will also have an improved Siri, the voice-prompted personal assistant, and may feature the recent patents granted to Apple such as the iWallet, multi-player gaming and the cutting edge crack-resistant glass.

Obviously we will keep you updated as we get more information about an actual confirmed release date. What we can tell you is that we will be shocked if the iPhone 5 is not released during WWDC.



All Glass iPhone 5?

Apple has acknowledged that Corning makes the majority of the glass for its iPhones. Reports say that Corning has moved its glass manufacturing to China. Now Apple has filed for a patent describing a unit that has a case made completely of glass.

According to Mashable, Apple says in its patent application: “Some of the reasons for using glass are that glass is strong, stiff, and radio transparent and a suitable material for an enclosure of an electronic device capable of wireless communications.” The patent application says that parts of the case may be opaque to keep sensors from being affected by light.

Indications are that Corning was working on a stronger glass that would eliminate the need for the metallic rim that caused problems with the iPhone 4. Further speculation points out that Apple may be preparing to release an all-glass iPhone, probably one-piece, all-smooth, curved at the edges, with a larger screen than the iPhone 4S.

Corning introduced its Gorilla Glass 2 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, according to 9 to 5 Mac. This version is supposed to be stronger and more durable than the standard Gorilla Glass. Perfectly suited for the new iPhone 5 we hope!

The Orlando Business Journal reports that a rumor about the iPhone 5 says it will have a 4.6-inch screen, almost as large the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the phone may have a retina display.

A glass iPhone 5 would set Apple’s model apart from its competitors, but we have to question whether having an all glass phone would be suitable for the day to day conditions of living. Most of us iPhone users who have ventured to carry their phone without a case have paid the price at one point or another. Gorilla glass sounds like it may dampen some worry for users, but we will have to wait and see.
