iPhone 5 Features: What We Know Up Till Now


We can be certain that Apple is going to release iPhone 5 in the next couple of weeks but most of our readers wonder what exactly are the iPhone 5 features going to be. In this post we shall discuss exactly that, in detail.

Before we begin though, let's quickly go through the iPhone 5 release date rumours we've heard recently. October 21 was pegged as a probable release date about two weeks back but it was later refuted by Orange CEO who claimed that the iPhone 5 would release on October 15. Yesterday after hearing from a reputable source we reported that Apple will release iPhone 5 on October 4. Even if the exact dates are incorrect, Apple's Board of Directors member and former US Vice President Al Gore has already confirmed the release of new iPhones in October.

Right, so as far as the iPhone 5 features are concerned it can be said for sure that the next generation iPhone will be powered by an A5 processor, yes the same processor that Apple has used in the iPad 2, coupled with 512MB of RAM. However it is likely that Apple may increase the RAM. The all new dual-core processor with greater RAM will not only give more speed to power-hungry smartphone users, but will also ensure better gaming experience and performance of apps on the upcoming iPhone 5.

One vital component of any smartphone is it's camera. Smartphone owners want their devices to have a good shooter and with the iPhone 4's camera being the most widely used one by Flickr users, it seems only logical for Apple to improve in that department. The iPhone 5 is likely to come with an 8 megapixel camera with full HD video recording capability. A picture believed to be taken from an iPhone 5 8 megapixel camera can be viewed here, just to get an idea of what pictures taken from the fifth generation iPhone will look like.

While hardware matters, nothing defines smartphone experience better than the software. Apple's mobile devices are particularly so popular because they run the world's most advanced mobile operating system, the iOS. The iPhone 5 will come preloaded with iOS 5 which is Apple's most extensive iOS update ever with over 200 new features including but not limited to an all new Notification Center and iMessage. As of now iOS 5 is in developer beta stage, but you can try iOS 5 on your iOS device if you want to.

These are some of the iPhone 5 features that we've covered. Obviously, we'll come to know of more when the iPhone 5 is actually released. We'll be there to break news when that happens so don't forget to bookmark us as we keep posting any and everything related to the iPhone 5.
