Just as predicted, the Apple event held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts yesterday proved to be the launch pad for the new iPhone 5. The guesswork about its new features was pretty accurate and although the surprise factor was not present, it is expected to sell really well.

The new iPhone is the thinnest in its class and is also very light. It features a 4-inch retina display and is powered by a quad-core A-6 processor designed by Apple. It promises a truly fast wireless technology and an improved battery life. It runs on iOS 6 and contains over 200 features not present in the older models of the device. It is now fully integrated with Facebook and Siri has now more languages and features than before. The device also has dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi support.
The iPhone 5’s iSight camera is still at 8 megapixels and has such features like backside illumination, a hybrid IR filter, a five-element lens, and an f2.4 aperture. It has a better light mode and photography apps are said to load up to 2.1 times faster. It also features a built-in panorama mode for up to a 28-megapixel photo. It also has an additional microphone for a total of three. If its speed and battery life lives up to what is promised, its sales may well reach the 10 million mark by the end of the month, according to analysts.
