New iPhone 5 has come up with lot of new exciting
features: A remarkably slim design that still makes
room for a larger display and a faster chip.
Ultrafast wireless that doesnít sacrifice battery
life. And all-new headphones designed to sound great
and fit comfortably. So much went into this iPhone.
So you could get even more
Thin, sleek, and very
Itís 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 aluminum body designed
and made with an unprecedented level of precision. iPhone 5
measures a mere 7.6 millimeters thin and weighs just 112
grams.1 Thatís 18 percent thinner and 20 percent
lighter than iPhone 4S. The only way to achieve a design
like this is by relentlessly considering (and reconsidering)
every single detail ó including the details you donít see.

More display means
more to see.
Anyone can make a
larger smartphone display. But if you go large for
largeís sake, you end up with a phone that feels
oversize, awkward, and hard to use. iPhone 5
features a 4-inch display designed the right way:
itís bigger, but itís the same width as iPhone 4S.
So everything youíve always done with one hand ó
typing on the keyboard, for instance ó 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
Itís more vibrant,
This isnít just a
larger display. Itís a larger Retina display. At 326
pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high your
eye canít distinguish individual pixels. And as
stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S,
this one gives you 18 percent more pixels for an
impressive 1136-by-640 resolution. Colors get a
boost, too, with color saturation thatís 44 percent
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 ó
LTE. The right way.
You rely on your iPhone.
So a thin, light design and outstanding battery life are
important to you. But so is a fast data connection. LTE
wireless technology is built for speed, but adding it to
a phone can create bulk and drain battery life quickly.
iPhone 5 does LTE the right way ó optimized for better
battery life and designed for ultrafast connectivity in
a thin profile. The very things you want most from your
cellular 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 ultrafast speeds.
Dual-band 802.11n wireless connectivity accelerates your
Wi-Fi experience, too ó up to 150 Mbps.3
Faster CPU performance.
With the new A6 chip, just
about everything you do on iPhone 5 is noticeably faster
ó up to twice as fast compared with the A5 chip. So apps
launch, web pages load, and email attachments appear
The A6 chip also offers
graphics performance thatís 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
Even better battery
Not only is the A6 chip
custom designed to be fast, itís 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 ó up to 8 hours
of browsing on a cellular connection, up to 8 hours of
talk time, and up to 10 hours of video playback time.
A breakthrough for ears everywhere.
fingerprints, ears are unique parts of the body.
Which means earbud headphones fit differently on
everyone. So rather than use the speaker as the
starting point for new headphones, Apple
designers and engineers started with the ear.
They tested over a hundred prototype designs on
hundreds of people. All with the goal of
creating earbuds that rest comfortably inside ó
and stay inside ó a variety of ear types, while
also producing quality sound. The result is a
breakthrough for earbud headphones: Apple
EarPods. Theyíre unlike anything youíve ever
seen or heard.

are just the beginning of the improved audio
experience on iPhone 5. Itís designed with three
microphones: one on the front, one on the back,
and one on the bottom. The front and back mics
work together to achieve beamforming ó a
technique that helps iPhone focus on sound from
the desired location for clearer audio. New
noise-canceling technology reduces background
noise. So when you hold iPhone up to your ear in
a loud room, you hear what matters most: the
voice on the other end.
iPhone is the most
popular camera in the world. For good reason. Photos
look so stunning, itís hard to believe they were taken
with a mobile phone. And everything that made the iSight
camera in iPhone 4S the worldís favorite is now on
iPhone 5 ó 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 percent 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
adventure-filled, must-see flicks produced by you and
shot on iPhone 5. Record stunning 1080p HD video with
the iSight camera. Improved video stabilization 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 cellular connection if
Wi-Fi isnít available.5 The quality of
FaceTime video calls is so surprising, itís as if youíre
in the same room with whoeverís on the other end. You
can also use the front camera for taking self-portraits
or recording 720p HD video.
A new way to get connected.
Making iPhone 5 thinner and lighter
required a pivotal change: replacing the 30-pin connector with something
newer, smaller, and better. Introducing the Lightning connector. It
features an all-digital, eight-signal design thatís significantly more
durable than the 30-pin connector. Another brilliant feature of
Lightning: Itís reversible. Which means thereís no wrong way to plug in
Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
Soon many iPhone accessories will be
Lightning compatible. But if you have one that depends on the 30-pin
connector, you can still connect it to your iPhone 5. Simply use a

The new Maps app gives you a better way to find
your way. Map elements are vector based, which means graphics and text are
incredibly sharp, even when you zoom in. Pan around, and youíll instantly
notice how smooth and responsive Maps is. Need directions from Point A to
Point B? Maps not only shows you how to get there, it tells you ó out loud,

Just ask Siri.
Siri is the intelligent
assistant that helps you get things done, just by
asking. Talk to Siri as you would to a person: ďDo I
need an umbrella?Ē or ďAny modern art museums around
here?Ē or ďWhereís the closest ATM?Ē Siri not only
understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It
figures out the right apps to use to find the right
answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, Siri
provides you with the information you need.7
New Siri features.
With iOS 6, Siri
understands more questions, knows more answers, and
gives you a lot more to talk about. Ask Siri about
sports scores and stats, where to eat, what movies to
see ó even ask Siri to make Facebook posts or tweet for
you. And Siri is fluent in more languages, so it does
more things in more countries.
