A remarkably slim design that still makes room for a larger display and a faster chip. Ultrafast wireless that doesnít sacrifice battery life. And all-new headphones designed to sound great and fit comfortably. So much went into this iPhone. So you could get even more out of it.
The thinnest, lightest, fatest iPhone ever
Itís hard to believe a phone so thin could offer so many features: a larger display, a faster chip, the latest wireless technology, an 8MP iSight camera, and more. All in a beautiful aluminum body designed and made with an unprecedented level of precision. iPhone 5 measures a mere 7.6 millimeters thin and weighs just 112 grams. Thatís 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than iPhone 4S. The only way to achieve a design like this is by relentlessly considering (and reconsidering) every single detail ó including the details you donít see.
4-inch Retina Display
This isnít just a larger display. Itís a larger Retina display. At 326 pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high your eye canít distinguish individual pixels. And as stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S, this one gives you 18 percent more pixels for an impressive 1136-by-640 resolution.
iPhone 5 is nearly 9 millimeters taller than iPhone 4S, but itís the same width. So itís just as easy to type with one hand.
Faster CPU performance
With the new A6 chip, just about everything you do on iPhone 5 is noticeably faster ó up to twice as fast compared with the A5 chip. So apps launch, web pages load, and email attachments appear almost instantly.
The A6 chip also offers graphics performance thatís up to twice as fast as the A5. So you can power through graphics-intensive apps and games. And enjoy higher frame rates for smoother, more realistic gameplay.
Even better battery life
Not only is the A6 chip custom designed to be fast, itís custom designed to work with iOS 6 to be extremely power efficient. So even at its accelerated speed, iPhone 5 has more than enough battery power to last throughout the day ó up to 8 hours of browsing on a cellular connection, up to 8 hours of talk time, and up to 10 hours of video playback time.
iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. For good reason. Photos look so stunning, itís hard to believe they were taken with a mobile phone. And everything that made the iSight camera in iPhone 4S the worldís favorite is now on iPhone 5 ó and then some. The gyroscope, A6 chip, and Camera app work together to create one seamless, high-resolution panorama up to 28 megapixels.
Enhanced HD video recording
Imagine sidesplitting, adventure-filled, must-see flicks produced by you and shot on iPhone 5. Record stunning 1080p HD video with the iSight camera. Improved video stabilization helps prevent shaky footage. Face detection for up to 10 faces means everyone can have a moment in the spotlight.
FaceTime HD camera
You use the front-facing camera on iPhone 5 to make FaceTime video calls. And now those calls can happen over a cellular connection if Wi-Fi isnít available. The quality of FaceTime video calls is so surprising, itís as if youíre in the same room with whoeverís on the other end. You can also use the front camera for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video. #80808
