Chances are you have a few iPhone or iPod chargers and cables in your house right now and maybe even a speaker dock or alarm clock that lets you plug in your iPhone. In one fell swoop, Apple made these obsolete when it launched its new Lightning connector on Wednesday.
Apple iPhone five Launch Delayed To 2012
Apple can be a primary mobile phone manufacturer which is common for its iPhones. After the unforeseen accomplishment of its iPhone four now Apple is planning to launch its iPhone five that is not formally declared but. It is being stated that Apple has delayed its release to 2012.
Apple’s conference was full of small and big announcements and very dense. Between the announcements of the iPhone 5 and the updated iPod line-up, it is hard to keep track of all the details. It is now time to look back and read our coverage of what Apple showed to the press today.
The iPhone 5
Of course, the biggest announcement was the unveiling of the iPhone 5.
After months of speculation, Apple (AAPL) finally debuted the much-anticipated iPad Mini with a Retina display Oct. 22, boasting not only the stunning new display but also a faster processor and better wireless performance. Also announced was the iPad Air, a thinner, faster version of the full-size iPad.
The iPod dock connector was built in in every iPhone and iPod (except the iPod Shuffle) since 2003. But Apple finally upgraded the port to Lightning for the iPhone 5 at the press conference today. It is an 8-pin port that transports only digital data and is 80 percent smaller.
Apple’s iPhone release schedule has been predictable in the past when it comes to number of devices: each year, a single new smartphone. For 2013, that’s changed with the iPhone 5c, as for the first time Apple has eschewed simply bumping down the outgoing iPhone as a lower cost option, and has instead released hardware specifically designed to be more affordable.
