Apple iPhone 5
It’s 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 aluminium body designed and made with an unprecedented level of precision. Apple iPhone 5 measures a mere 7.6 millimetres thin and weighs just 112 grams.1That’s 18 per cent thinner and 20 per cent lighter than iPhone 4S.
More display means more to see.
Anyone can make a larger smartphone display. But if you go large for large’s sake, you end up with a phone that feels oversized, awkward and hard to use. iPhone 5 features a 4-inch display designed the right way: it’s bigger, but it’s the same width as iPhone 4S. So everything you’ve always done with one hand — typing on the keyboard, for instance — you can still do with one hand. On a larger canvas that lets you see more of every web page. More of your inbox. More events on your calendar. Even more apps on your Home screen.
It’s more vibrant too.
This isn’t just a larger display. It’s a larger Retina display. At 326 pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high, your eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. And as stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S, this one gives you 18 per cent more pixels for an impressive 1136×640 resolution. Colours get a boost too, with colour saturation that’s 44 per cent greater than before. So with iPhone 5, the games you play, the words you read, the images you see and the apps you love look and feel incredibly vivid and lifelike. For big-time entertainment, iPhone 5 lets you watch widescreen HD video in all its glory — without letterboxing.
Faster CPU performance.
With the new A6 chip, just about everything you do on iPhone 5 is noticeably faster — 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 that’s 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, it’s 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 — up to 8 hours of browsing on a mobile data connection, up to 8 hours of talk time and up to 10 hours of video playback time.3
iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. For good reason. Photos look so stunning, it’s hard to believe they were taken with a mobile phone. And everything that made the iSight camera in iPhone 4S the world’s favourite is now on iPhone 5 — and then some. The new panorama feature lets you capture everything from a family reunion group photo to a jaw-dropping shot of the Grand Canyon. With one smooth motion, you can shoot up to an impressive 240 degrees. The gyroscope, A6 chip and Camera app work together to create one seamless, high-resolution panorama up to 28 megapixels.
Even better features.
The Camera app also features improvements including 40 per cent faster photo capture, better low-light performance and improved noise reduction. So you can snap more shots with more detail and clarity than ever before.
Enhanced HD video recording.
Imagine side-splitting, adventure-filled, must-see flicks produced by you and shot on iPhone 5. Record stunning 1080p HD video with the iSight camera. Improved video stabilisation helps prevent shaky footage. Face detection for up to 10 faces means everyone can have a moment in the spotlight. You can even take still photos as you record, so you can capture small moments while shooting a big one.
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 mobile connection if Wi-Fi isn’t available.4 The quality of FaceTime video calls is so surprising, it’s as if you’re in the same room with whoever’s on the other end. You can also use the front camera for taking self-portraits or recording 720p HD video.
Next-generation mobile data and wireless connectivity.
iPhone 5 supports more networks all over the world. That includes advanced networks such as HSPA, HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA. Browse, download and stream content at ultra-fast speeds. Dual-band 802.11n wireless connectivity accelerates your Wi-Fi experience too — up to 150 Mbps.2
