he much anticipated Apple iPhone 5 had finally launched by Apple yesterday with a number of new additions and improvements. However, the handset has disappointed many people. The cause of the disappointment to the people was the videos which showed some enormous transparent (We know, that was a Fake Video but people don’t know about reality of the video) and heart taking features of the phone.
I would like to quote the new product as “Amazing” as Apple Inc new phone is quite good with its features and quality.
In this post, We have posted the Apple iPhone 5 new additions and improvements. I hope the disappointed people must have a look on these features and will find that the Apple iPhone 5 is really new and innovative.
Apple iPhone 5 new additions
The Apple iPhone 5 has got some new additions in its dimensions with the longer screen and thinner edges. Apple iPhone 5 is the thinner phone in the world with its just 7.6 mm thickness.
The Apple iPhone is the best Apple product as far it is concerned to its design. The handset has 18 percent reduced thickness than Apple iPhone 4S and 20 percent lesser weight.
The handset has become the thinnest iPhone ever built with the largest screen. Its 4 inches Retina screen is a good move by Apple which has real good pixel density. The exact length of this phone is 123.8 mm. The width of the new one is unchanged i.e. 58.6 mm.
The weight of this handset is 112 grams only. Imagine such a handset resting on your palm with all new 4 inches display which can display at a time 5 rows of icons. The Apple has not introduced more width to this handset which is the first plus point of the makers as the handsets like Samsung Galaxy S3 can never be used easily for the single handed operations.
The Apple iPhone 5 has the all new design with the rear part made up of the Aluminium and Glass. The Aluminium used is the series 6000 type.
Moreover, the crystalline diamonds were used to sharpen and provide slope to the edges of this product which are really good to see.
One more new thing introduced is the Sapphire crystal to cover the camera of the phone instead of the simple glass. To your notice, the Sapphire is the second hardest material in the world after diamond. That means the new one is really tougher.
New Earbuds [EarPods]
That is what the Apple has introduced with this new product, a thing which the customers were demanding from atleast a decade. The earphones of the Apple have been re-designed by the company, which are very comfortable to wear.
The New EarPods are having a good built and have been tested in many conditions with different people and then approved after the 3 year effort of the product. Well, the earphones can work well in high temperature and sweaty conditions. They d not even jump out of your years when you turn your head.
Apple Logo design
The Apple Logo has been partially filled with two colors. The black variant of the Apple iPhone 5 has its logo of Black and late colors. However, the White variant of Apple iPhone 4 has been colored with the white and Silver colors.
The Apple has also introduced a new connector in this product which is strongly criticized by the tech gurus as many companies had relied upon the connectivity equipments and accessories of the Apple.
With the new connector, it would also be difficult for the people who own the older accessories of apple. So, the brand has also launched an adapter for the connectivity of the new iPhone with the older accessories. The adapter cost is $30, so that’s additional and disappointing factor as they have to buy another accessory to connect their older accessories with this phone.
The adapter will be the 30 pin connector which will be an interface between the lightning connector and the older accessory.
Airplay enables handset to be connected with the HDTV to play the High Definition videos without any physical connection. This means the connection is wireless now. When the AirPlay will be started, what you do on the phone, it will just play the thing on the HDTV. Playing game and even typing will also appear on the HD screen.
AirPrint is a feature which will enable the user to print anything on the printer (Airplay enabled printer only). So, with the Wi-Fi ON, the anything can be printed on the printer without need of any connector, wire or drivers.
Apple iPhone 5 Advancements
The display of Apple iPhone 5 is the Retina type which one of the best display in the world. The phone has improved pixel density up to 18 percent more pixels. Every inch of the phone has 326 pixels.
On the other hand, the phone has the improved pixel resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels. That is the great of Apple, which had manufactured a lighter phone with larger screen with more pixels. The phone is reportedly 9 mm taller than the previous version.
The Apple iPhone 5 has been equipped with the 4G LTE connectivity which is limited to some carriers in the world. So with the 4G carrier in Apple iphone 5, one can enjoy a speed up to 100 Mbps.
The HSPA and HSPA+ connectivity features will be able to provide the 14.4 Mbps and 21 Mbps speed respectively. The GPRS and EDGE are also supportive, capable of downloading data at the speeds of .04 and .38 Mbps speed.
The Wireless connectivity of this phone is made the dual band with 802.11 n will provide the 150 Mbps speed on this phone. The surfing and downloading on this device will be really fast.
The new processing chip has been placed in this phone. The handset operates upon the A6 chip which is quite efficient and fast. The iOS 6 operating system is the heart of this phone which contains more than 200 applications preloaded. The iOS 6 is really awesome.
The Apple iPhone 5 phone has also the iCloud which can store lot information.
The Siri app was the main attraction of the Apple iPhone 4S, which had led the phone to be the highest sold product in the market. In the new phone, the Apple has advanced the Siri application with more smart answers of the user’s questions
SIRI thus provides a faster and right answer or selects the right application when asked. However, the interface of the SIRI application is same.
The camera part of the rear camera was expected to be increased up to 12 MP. However Apple stuck to the 8 MP iSight camera. There are changes made in the video recording and the effects of the camera.
I shall first talk about the Panorama mode of the camera which can allow the user to capture high quality 3D pictures with 240 degree rotation on the whole. The phone uses the gyroscope sensor and processor with camera, to capture 28 MP pictures.
The image quality captured form the camera is very clear. The camera of this phone captures pictures at very fast rates and is quite efficient in capturing pictures in low light with reduction in the noise.
The 1080p HD videos can be recorded from the rear camera which can also detect 10 faces at a time. The video quality is very good. The front camera is also made capable to record HD videos in 720 pixels. So, the video calling will seem as if it is real.
The camera lens has been made up f the Sapphire crystal which will keep it scratch resistant.
The maps on the Apple iPhone 5 have been advanced features which will be user friendly and a lot easier to use with a close detail. Have a look in the picture below.
The battery life of the phone will be good than the previous Apple phones as the A6 chip of the phone smartly switches off the unused part and thus smartly consume the battery of the phone.
The phone will tend to give 8 hours talktime backup as well as 8 hours LTE browsing backup. The phone can play videos up to 10 hours period.
