"iPhone 5: The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone," says Apple, setting the bar high for its newest smartphone. Rumors and speculation about the sixth-generation phone began about 4.2 seconds after the introduction of the iPhone 4S last October, but the iPhone 5 has now landed in our grubby little hands. It's thinner. It's lighter. And it's—taller.
Apple brought plenty of improvements to the iPhone this year: the company designed an entirely new processor, there's a new camera, and the phone now supports 4G LTE data speeds. iOS 6 was just rolled out in conjunction with the iPhone 5 release and features its own significant upgrades (read our review of iOS 6 for more details on what's new).
Are these and other changes enough? We hope to help you answer that question with this review. So strap on those fairy wings from your Halloween box in the back of the closet; we're about to get "magical."
