iPhone 5 is here

The iPhone 5 looks similar to previous models but has a larger screen and is lighter and thinner than the iPhone 4S. Apple says the larger screen will make it easier to check and send e-mails and to view Web pages with the phone in your hand. The phone also comes with a new, faster processor called the Apple A6; and it connects to mobile carriers with a 4G LTE connection. Also as expected – the charger connector has changed – and there has been a significant modification to the ear buds (now known as “Ear Pods” for Apple Products – which are now noise cancelling. Customers in the United States, Canada and nine other countries can purchase the phone starting on Sept. 21. The cheapest 16 GB version will retail for $699; $799 for the 32GB model and $899 for the 64GB model.

There has also been an update to the iPod touch + Nano and iTunes – but no one really seems to care about that.
