The iPhone launch day has come and gone and if you were lucky to get one at the store or get your pre order you know how amazing it is. I am already starting my review on this amazing phone. I absolutely love it. I hope you all love it as much as I do.
AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and Apple are all now taking pre order requests for the iPhone 5. Might want to hurry. The Apple servers seem to be holding well but if the store goes down try using the Apple Store app for the iPhone. I got the 32 GB Black/Slate on AT&T. Which model will you be getting? As always good luck!
The day has finally come with the new iPhone being announced. So I thought I would run down the most important aspects that make this phone the best iPhone yet.
Pre Orders and Launch
The new iPhone will not be available for pre order today (Sad Face) but they will be available for Pre Order on September 14th in the US and available in store 8AM. This will also be the date the Pre Orders arrive. There is no word on what time the Pre Orders will start but if history repeats itself (Which it is with Friday being the day!) then Pre orders will start at 3:45 PM Eastern or 12:45 Pacific.
The New Charger
The new charger for me is actually one of the best things. For so long I have wished it was smaller. However I hard a little nerd freakout moment when they said that the connector works both ways. All of you know this feeling: When you are in the dark ready to charge your iPhone and then you can’t figure out which way the connector goes. No more! There of course will be an adaptor that looks ridiculous but can already bought on the online store!
The New Screen
Of course we have known about this for a while but today it is official: The new iPhone for the first time ever will have a bigger screen then the ones in the past. if it seems pointless now that’s because it sort of is. However I have high hopes the next iOS(7) will take us away with the new screen!
The new iPhone sports a brand new never before A6 processor. This chip will make your iPhone fly. I don’t know all the details but I am told that it is 2x faster than the iPad. Hopefully this is true
This one was not really a surprise for me because the iPad had it. However now the iPhone is able to connect to LTE on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. Sorry T-Mobile USA you will not have the iPhone unless you get one unlocked.
The new headphones that will come with the iPhone 5 are designed specifically for your ear without suction. I have hope they will be decent.
Finally we are at the design. They say they have an entire new design for the phone but that’s not true. It has the same form factor as the 4 did but the screen and sides and back are all different. The back will be Slate and Black for the Black Model and Silver and White for the white model.The sides will be aluminum and will match the color of the aluminum on the back.
Remember that the phone has the same price point and same storage models.
With the iPhone Event invitations out for Wednesday I thought it would be cool to look at the past iPhone and iOS invitations.
The Original iPhone will always reign to me as the best iPhone. Not as far as specs go but with design. I feel the best design for the iPhone was the aluminum brushed with plastic we all saw at WWDC in 2007.I got one last year of eBay and yes I do still use it. As far as updates go the iPhone was killed at 3.1.3 but has not been forgotten.
If you were like me the original iPhone was to expensive when it first launched at 500 dollars for the low model. Therfor you were waiting for the next generation to come quickly and hopefully with a lower price tag. When Steve Jobs told us all about the iPhone 3G and the App Store I went crazy! The iPhone 3G was my first iPhone and I still have one with me. The iPhone 3G was killed at iOS 4.2.
The iPhone OS 3.0 event brought the world iPhone OS 3.0. To me the event was not as impressive as I would have liked but was still okay. Right around then I started to get interested in Apple.
At WWDC 2009 the world was given the iPhone 3Gs that is still around with us for probably only a few weeks now. The 3Gs brought a faster processor and video recording to the iPhone.
WWDC brought us the iPhone 4 which was famously bought by Gizmodo and leaked on the internet before the initial launch. The form is still being used in iPhone’s today and will be brought probably to the next iPhone as well with some added features. iOS 4 brought folders and multitasking to the world of iOS.
The famous let’s talk iPhone event was the last iPhone event before Steve Job’s passed away. The event was supposed to be home to the iPhone 5 but we got the 4s instead with Siri.
Apple’s September event still remains somewhat of a mystery. However we can be sure that the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 will be launched. to follow the iPhone 5 rumors click here. Remember we will have live coverage on twitter (@matthewjagiela) and here on the site as well.
If you are like me you will remember this video waiting for the amazing new iPhone 4 to come to your door. As the iPhone 4 gets ready to be put to the low end budget model I thought I would give it some recognition for the great phone it was and still is.
