iPhone 5 Facts

Taller than earlier iPhones, meaning a bigger screen (four inches diagonally), but also hogging up more room in your pocket.

That said, at 7.6 mm thick, it is 18 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S, and weighing 112 grams, 20 percent lighter.

326 PPI Retina display (same as before)

Five rows of icons (as opposed to four on earlier models)

Apps that are optimized for the new screen size will show more information (more emails, more calendar events) per screen. Those that aren't will display black bars at the top and bottom so they will render like the did on older iPhones.

LTE support for a maximum hypothetical download speed of around 100 megabits/second.

Its chip, the A6, will be twice as fast and apps will load about twice as quickly, even those with music and images. It's also 22 percent smaller.

Camera: 8 megapixel sensor, 3264 by 2448, backside illumination, hybrid IR filter, 5 element lens, f/2.4 aperture, new panorama mode, new social stream to share photos with friends and family

Video: 1080p HD video, improved video stabilization, face detection

FaceTime now possible over cellular networks

No longer uses Apple's standard 30-pin cable. Instead plugs into a new design called "Lightning". Adapters will be available for hooking it up to your dock and other accessories.

Runs iOS 6, with enhanced 3D maps, more integration with iCloud and Twitter.

Pre-orders start Friday, and the phones will ship September 21 to nine countries including the U.S.

Battery life:

  • 3G talk time = 8 hours
  • LTE or 3G browsing = 8 hours
  • WiFi browsing = 10 hours
  • standby = 225 hours

Price
16 GB = $199
32 GB = $299
64 GB = $399

iPhone 4 and 4S prices now drop: free for the 8 GB iPhone 4 model, and $99 for the 16 GB iPhone 4S
