Using the tag #iPhone5 Hello long#, users of Chinese microblogging website Sina Weibo are having a good laugh at the iPhone 5. In particular, the phone's new longer form factor and the absence of much else that's new. We admit it — we laughed heartily. Have a look at some of our favourites below. In China, the Photoshop wars are on to see who can make the most ludicrous fun of the iPhone 5. (Credit: Sina Weibo). In China, the Photoshop wars are on to see who can make the most ludicrous fun of the iPhone 5.
What about that new dock connector?What Apple calls Lightning is a new proprietary connector that's 80 percent insignia - protective case for apple iphone xs max - clear pink smaller than the old 30-pin connectors, Its main feature: there's no top or bottom, so you can plug it in either way, The older plugs needed to be oriented correctly, Of course, this change means your old cables and things like docks and third-party audio systems won't work with your new phone (yeah, that's annoying), To get around that, Apple's got an adapter that you'll have to buy (naturally), and it ain't cheap, It's $29 per adapter, Alternatively, Apple will sell a Lightning-to-USB cable for $19 and a Lightning-to-30-pin cable for $39, Expect cheaper third-party adapters to surface in the future, but for now your options are very limited..
The glass on the back is gone?Yes and no. The back of the new device is mainly metal, though there are glass windows on the top and bottom of the phone to let the various antennas communicate. Apple's done something similar on past versions of the iPod Touch, and even the iPad with 3G. Does this mean it will be more durable, or less prone to breaking when dropped? That remains to be seen. And the SIM is even smaller? Indeed. The iPhone 4 brought us the smaller micro SIM card (first seen in the original iPad), and now we're getting an even smaller nano SIM. Unfortunately, larger SIMs won't work in the iPhone 5 even if you try to shave them down. The newer spec isn't just smaller in shape, it's thinner too.
Will the battery life change?There's no change in battery life between last year's model and this year's insignia - protective case for apple iphone xs max - clear pink mode when it comes to talk time, Like the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5 is rated for 8 hours of talking over 3G, The iPhone 5 has an edge on battery life when it comes to other features though, The iPhone 5 gets 8 hours of Web browsing over LTE, up from the 6 hours the 4S gets over 3G, When on Wi-Fi, the iPhone 5 also gets 10 hours of browsing on Wi-Fi, up an hour from the iPhone 4S' 9 hours, Standby time has improved to 225 hours, according to Apple, up from the iPhone 4S' 200 hours, Both are significantly shorter than the 300 hours the iPhone 4 is rated for under Apple's testing standards..
CNET, of course, will conduct our own battery tests. When will it be available and which carriers will get it first?The iPhone 5 goes on sale September 21 at 8 a.m. Pacific Time at Apple's retail stores. Major U.S. carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are also selling the device in their retail stores on September 21. So T-Mobile is left out of the loop again. Will smaller carriers like U.S. Cellular or MetroPCS get it?U.S. Cellular and MetroPCS have not announced any plans to carry the device yet.
