Apple Unveils an iPhone That Is Lighter and More Powerful

The New York Times: On Wednesday, Apple unveiled the iPhone 5. The new smartphone is 8 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4. It also boasts faster Internet speeds and a more powerful processor. Also, for the first time, Apple changed the dimensions on the iPhone screen–it’s now longer, although the width stayed the same. Apple CEO Tim Cook said the company aimed to build the industry’s best smartphone by combining the most important technologies into a beautifully designed package. “I feel the need to be the best,” he said.
