The iPhone 5 is here and it is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever. Although some critics have said that they iPhone 5 is similar to the previous models, once you hold and use the new iPhone 5 you can really feel the difference, in how the phone functions, the weight and the size.

iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world's most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features including:
· the all new Maps app with Apple-designed cartography and turn-by-turn navigation;
· Facebook integration;
· Passbook organization
· and even more Siri features and languages.

One of the key features of the new iPhone 5 is the 4G LTE connectivity. This is an upgrade from previous models, which means that this phone is capable of taking advantage of all the available 4G networks, including LTE and HSPA+ on carriers like AT&T.

The interest in the new iPhone 5 has been unprecedented, massive pre-orders were followed by lines and sell outs at stores around the country when it was release on Friday, September 21.
