Apple is currently showing a demo of iOS6 running on the new iPhone 5. It comes with some of the features we've already covered when they debuted iOS 6 such as turn-by-turn directions. The navigation features work in both landscape and portrait.
Next iOS6 feature being show: new notification center so that you can tap to Tweet or post to Facebook.
Safari gets fullscreen mode and cloud tab sync.
Of course, the rumors have again proved true. The iPhone 5 introduces a new dock connector which is called Lightning, "so we have Thunderbolt and Lightning." It's all-digital, 8-signal design, reversible, 80& smaller. Apple is working on an adapter so older 30-pin connector can be used.
"So a lot has changed, and it's time for the connector to evolve. Our new connector is called Lightning. So we have Thunderbolt and Lightning."
Apple's doing a lot of bragging about their new iPhone 5 camera. Uses a sapphire crystal and has an 8 mp sensor. 3264 x 2448 resolution, f/2.4 aperture all make the camera that much better. Apple has shown some photos taken with the iPhone 5, supposedly untouched.
They've also added the ability to take panorama photos at some 28 megapixels. Wow.
Now you can take pictures while recording. And use FaceTime over cellular (unless AT&T says no).
Apple just confirmed the name of the new phone as the iPhone 5 and now as they get through the presentation this morning in San Francisco, more announcements come to the table.
As expected by rumors over the past weeks and months, the iPhone 5 comes with Ultrafast Wireless. That is Apple's name for LTE or 4G. This is just Apple just catching up to many of the Samsung devices that have LTE. I recall Samsung saying or at least rumors stating that if Apple come out with an LTE device, they will sue them immediately.
Besides just LTE for super-fast Internet access, now there is new Wi-Fi with 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11n bands...
Apple is on stage bragging that the new iPhone 5 screen looks better. They say the new screen features 44% more color saturation. It also features integrated touch, which Apple claims makes it the most accurate touchscreen to-date.
Apple is also on stage bragging about the "ultrafast" wireless capabilities of the device. It seems they have added LTE capability, even though Samsung has threatened to sue over patents.
BREAKING! Apple has just announced its latest iPhone and it's called the iPhone 5.
This is the phone that some anaylsytcs claim that it may be able to increase the US GDP by around half a percent.
Specifications are coming up. No real surprises so far. Stay tuned, this is breaking news.
