New Apple iPhone 5

I LOVE IT….do you?

As the anticipation was building today leading up to Apple’s WWDC, the much talked-about iPhone 5 has officially been unveiled. The iPhone 4/4S successor is expectedly impressive with an all glass and aluminum body and structure. Living up to much of the rumors and early grapevine conversations, the iPhone 5 arrives with some subtle and other substantial changes.

Body:

Touted by Apple as the world’s “thinnest smartphone,” the phone weighs in at 112 grams and is 7.6mm thick and 18% thinner than before. Taller than the previous generation phones, the iPhone 5 boasts a 326ppi Retina display with a four inch screen at 1136 x 640 resolution. The screen is the same width as previous models yet slightly taller. Offered in two colors, white or black, the white body style will feature an aluminum backing while the black iteration will feature a black anodized backing.

The increased screen size also bumps up your springboard space bringing about five rows of icons in addition to the shortcut bottom row. All of the Apple first party Apps have been updated to be optimized for the new screen including the iWork suite as well as iMovie and GarageBand.

A6 Processor:

Numerically, the iPhone 5 takes it to the next step and includes a powerful A6 Processor inside which is expected to bring 2x CPU processing as well as 2x graphics performance while still consuming less energy. The A6 processor is 22% smaller than the previously installed A5 processor.

Network:

The iPhone 5 will run on LTE — meaning the phone will operate on the fastest cellular data network around. For U.S. cell phone providers, you can expect Sprint, AT&T and Verizon to run the iPhone 5 on LTE initially.

Battery Life:

Apple has improved the battery life of the new iPhone with an expected talk time and browsing time of eight hours on 3G or LTE while WiFi will run you about 10-hours talk time/browsing.

iSight/Video:

The phone’s camera has been slightly downsized (approximately 25% thinner), although it features the same iPhone 4S, 8-megapixel camera at an f/2.4 aperture. It also features a dynamic low light mode intended to improve image quality within low light conditions. Video has been improved to film at 1080p with face detection, improved image stabilization and the user can also take photos while filming video. The front facing camera will film at an improved 720p, for HD FaceTime and will also include backside illumination.

New “Lightning” Dock Connector:

Perhaps one of the most notable changes of the iPhone 5 is the creation of a new connector which is being called, “Lightning.” Doing away with the old iPod connector, Lightning is 80% smaller than the previous connector and is reversible creating a more user friendly, ease-of-use.

New Apple iPhone 5 Concept

20120622-175138.jpg

When I first spotted those leaked images of what was claimed to be the next-generation iPhone’s rear panel, I wasn’t keen on the two-tone aluminum look, and I found myself wondering what Jony Ive was up to inside Apple’s design labs. But now that I’ve seen a few mockups of that design, I’ve changed my mind, and come October I would love this to be at the end of those long queues at Apple. In fact, the latest mockups, created by Martin Hajek, look absolutely incredible.

Apple’s 1986 Clothing Collection

20120618-071145.jpg

Believe it or not, the tech empire that is Apple once had its foot in the fashion realm, releasing a collection of apparel that truly harks back to the 1980s — an obvious showing of the change in times and style to the current simple and sleek designs. Released in 1986, the old images proudly showcases models in bold and vivid sports-casual wear for men, women and children. Raising an eyebrow from the irony of a fashion line coming from the man notorious for his mock turtleneck tops, the collection still tells of the company’s spirit, best resembled in its rainbow colored logo.

Apple iPhone Plus 5 Concept

20120511-084457.jpg

We love iPhone concepts, because not only do they project the future, but they make us dream for more. Based on the most recent rumors of the upcoming iPhone (or iPhone 5 or whatever else you want to call it), the same folks that dreamed up the incredible Instagram Socialmatic Camera, also came up with the iPhone Plus. The designers of ADR Studio included a thinner liquidmetal body, 4.3″ Retina display, A6 Quadcore processor and lots of others features into their so called iPhone Plus. Obviously this will not become reality, but to a certain degree it will and that we find inspiring.
