iPhone 5 (6th generation) Summary

The iPhone 5 was released 2012

In September 2012, the 6th generation of the famous smartphones from Apple came on the market. And this time, Apple made a lot of changes and updates. But this was an important step, because a lot of users were disappointed of the update from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4s. So Apple came with a whole redesigned iPhone 5.
Direct attention is paid to the larger display. With 4 inches and a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels, the first thought you got was: “That thing is huge”. But despite the new size, the iPhone’s weight was just 112g. So it was significantly lighter than its predecessor. Another striking aspect was the new Lightning dock connector.

But also inside the new iPhone 5 you could find a lot of updates. The new A6 dual-core processor should provide twice as much speed towards his predecessor CPU. Thus it was considerably faster, but could not keep up with the competition to the competitor’s quad-core models. The camera got a lot faster, allowing Panorama pictures and taking picture during video recording. In addition, the iPhone 5 was the first of its series to support mobile standard LTE, which allows significantly higher speeds.

Special features / innovations of this model:

  • 4-inch display
  • Nano SIM
  • Dual-band WiFi & LTE

A year after the release of the iPhone 5 Apple broke its rhythm to launch one new model every year. In 2013 we could buy a new iPhone 5C or a new iPhone 5S.
