iPhone 5

iPhone 5 was officially announced on September 12th 2012 by Tim Cook, Chief Executive Officer of Apple. All the hype about the new generation of iPhone has ended with much disappointment to many.

First of all, it was more of a hardware upgrade rather than new innovation, i.e. a faster A6 processor, better camera for taking panoramic pictures, longer size to accommodate 5 rows of icons. The introduction of LTE network support was consistently known by the public as 2-year old technology. In addition, Apple replaced Google Map apps on iOS 6 (which comes preinstalled in iPhone 5), and removed YouTube app; both apps owned by Google, sending a message out that it will cease to partner with them on developing apps and start to rely on its own technology.
