Photos from launch
Just like a hundred thousand or more, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the iPhone 5 to see what they to do more to the world's best smart phone. 16:9 4 inch screen and increased battery life will do it for most people.... while given my current spherical panoramic photo business would have liked a better camera, but they have retained the current 4S spec 8MB camera. Not that I complain. They have committed to better optics and better performance in low light... and now the native camera function has a panorama mode … for wide photos.
The shape changes, and the power / data connector, which does mean that upgraders will have to upgrade all their accessories.
They are going to support 4G networks across the world too, which makes it faster to pull information which will be processed twice as quick on the a6 processor.
We will wait to see how well they support Australian roads with Apple maps in place of Google ones, with SIRI supposedly helping out with turn by turn voice instructions to help your ontime arrival at destinations. That would be nice.
I will be on the hunt for one for sure to see what difference the upgraded camera will have to my iPhone photography business, and enjoy being first on the streets with one.
