TechBits: iPhone 5 announcement

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM - AL -

    Apple has now officially unveiled the new iPhone.  It has one big feature that iPhone fans have been asking for:  4G data capability.  It's something Android users already have.

    The phone also has a bigger screen, and a 16x9 aspect ratio.  Older apps that are not in 16x9 will be letterboxed.  Apple has already tweaked first-party apps to work with the new screen.  The screen size will also allow an extra row of icons on the home screen.

    5 also has a beefed-up processor, which can handle most tasks at twice the speed of the previous processor.  The camera has also been improved.

    The new phone has a connector that is 80% smaller than previous iPhone connectors.  That means old phones can't use a 5 connector, and vice-versa, unless an adaptor is used.

    The new iPhone 5 is set for release eon September 21st.
