Finally, the much-awaited iPhone 5 has been released and it is all everyone can talk about. This phone, since its revelation, definitely created a buzz in the techie world as well as with those that are even less inclined to technology. This is a follow up on the hype created with the iPhone 5 Leaks article we posted last week. There were rumours about the looks of this phone. Some claimed the iPhone 5 was going to be a different shape to its predecessors; a curved shape was actually proposed by many, claiming the iPhone 5 wasn’t going to be the usual slim, straight device we all knew.

Well, the speculations have finally been put to rest now that Apple has released the iPhone at an event last week on the 12th of September. The new iPhone 5 is not only the thinnest iPhone yet, it is also the most powerful. Equipped with the very powerful iOS 6 (Apple’s best operating system yet), the iPhone 5 has definitely sparked a lot of consumer excitement. The best of all for All iphone users is that WhatsApp for iphone 5 is working and working well. According to Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, the iPhone 5 is definitely the most beautiful device Apple has ever created.

The jaw-dropping 4-inch Retina display on this device makes everything; images, texts and so on, look crisp and so life-like that you can’t help but fall in love with it. The most conspicuous difference between the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 with WhatsApp messenger at first glance is the fact that the screen of the iPhone 4S is longer. If you are wondering why Apple made a taller screen instead of a wider screen, it is simply to allow the ease of holding your device with one hand while using the other hand to tap and use the functions on the phone.

With the amazing pixels the retina display technology offers, you can be sure of High Definition video recording on this device with the small but rather effective 8 megapixel iSight rear camera. The camera has a number of optical features on the iPhone 5 that immediately makes the phone a favourite. It has a crystal sapphire lens cover that allows for images that are amazingly crystal clear. It also comes with a panorama feature that can allow the creation of up to 28 megapixel of imagery. The front camera on the iPhone 5 also allows you to take high quality pictures of yourself as well as engage in video calls using the popular FaceTime App, which is preloaded on the device.

Apple, for the purpose of this device created a new A6 chip that enables faster and much better performance; the chip apparently increases power efficiency in the device. You will agree with me that with all the features the device is packed with, power efficiency is a necessity. The device is said to have an amazing battery life but we will have to wait and see for ourselves with constant use.

The iPhone 5 supports 4G LTE technology that allow for faster surfing of the internet. Other features include improved Siri (one of the best digital assistants yet), improved Apple maps and of course the much-loved iCloud that enables you to pull up any document or image you might need at anytime, anywhere, from your apple device.

The iPhone 5 is available in a variation of white or black as usual and ranges from $199 to about $400, depending on the amount of storage capacity you intend to purchase. We are sure this particular device is going to have Apple stores around the world bursting to their brims soon.
