The next iPhone is here. After teasing us with the iPhone 4S last year, Apple's next true iteration finally arrived earlier this month, and we couldn't be more excited! With the iPhone 5, Apple has pushed design and functionality to the absolute forefront. Previously, we've spoken about how Apple designed perfection with the iPhone. They've tinkered, fiddled, stretched, and compacted the iPhone 4's iconic design into something even more beautiful.
So, should you get the iPhone 4 or iPhone 5? Let's take an in depth look at what makes the iPhone 5 different than the iPhone 4S and 4 that preceded it. Are the changes in the newest phone as drastic as they could have been? Probably not. But hey, at this point, with the iPhone 5, Apple is simply refining an already refined device.
The most apparent difference between the iPhone 4 and 5 is, of course, the elongated screen and overall body shape. In order to compete with phones like the Samsung Galaxy S3 that have huge screens, Apple stretched their traditional screen size. We have to say, it was a necessary improvement, and I'm sure users will welcome the added screen space. On the surface, you'll also notice Apple's update iOS6 operating system. After adding a handful of improvements and design tweaks, the version of iOS remains speedy and intuitive, something that made it such a hit in the first place.
Additionally, they've added a zippier new processor and some much needed 4g LTE network speeds. These two changes not only bring the iPhone 5 up to the modern standard of speed set by smart phones, but combined with its sleek and elongated metallic design, make the iPhone 5 one extremely attractive smart phone.
