Apple iPhone 5 64GB (SIM Free/Unlocked, White/Silver)
So much more than before. And so much less, too
A remarkably slim design that still makes room for a larger display
and a faster chip. Ultrafast wireless that doesn’t sacrifice battery
life. And all-new headphones designed to sound great and fit
comfortably. So much went into this iPhone. So you could get even more
out of it.
All-New Design. The thinnest, lightest, Fastest iPhone ever
Thin, sleek, and very capable.
It’s hard to believe a phone so thin could offer so many features: a
larger display, a faster chip, the latest wireless technology, an 8MP
iSight camera, and more. All in a beautiful aluminum body designed and
made with an unprecedented level of precision. iPhone 5 measures a mere
7.6 millimeters thin and weighs just 112 grams.1 That’s 18 percent
thinner and 20 percent lighter than iPhone 4S. The only way to achieve a
design like this is by relentlessly considering (and reconsidering)
every single detail — including the details you don’t see.
4-Inch Retina Display. It's not just bigger. It's just right
More display means more to see.
Anyone can make a larger smartphone display. But if you go large for
large’s sake, you end up with a phone that feels oversize, awkward, and
hard to use. iPhone 5 features a 4-inch display designed the right way:
it’s bigger, but it’s the same width as iPhone 4S. So everything you’ve
always done with one hand — typing on the keyboard, for instance — you
can still do with one hand. On a larger canvas that lets you see more of
every web page. More of your inbox. More events on your calendar. Even
more apps on your Home screen.
It’s more vibrant, too.
This isn’t just a larger display. It’s a larger Retina display. At 326
pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high your eye can’t
distinguish individual pixels. And as stunning as the Retina display is
on the iPhone 4S, this one gives you 18 percent more pixels for an
impressive 1136-by-640 resolution. Colors get a boost, too, with color
saturation that’s 44 percent greater than before. So with iPhone 5, the
games you play, the words you read, the images you see, and the apps you
love look and feel incredibly vivid and lifelike. For big-time
entertainment, iPhone 5 lets you watch widescreen HD video in all its
glory — without letterboxing.
Ultrafast Wireless - Connect to fast data networks, The world over.
LTE. The right way.
You rely on your iPhone. So a thin, light design and outstanding
battery life are important to you. But so is a fast data connection. LTE
wireless technology is built for speed, but adding it to a phone can
create bulk and drain battery life quickly. iPhone 5 does LTE the right
way — optimized for better battery life and designed for ultrafast
connectivity in a thin profile. The very things you want most from your
Next-generation cellular and wireless connectivity.
iPhone 5 supports more networks all over the world. That includes
advanced networks such as HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA. Browse, download,
and stream content at ultrafast speeds. Dual-band 802.11n wireless
connectivity accelerates your Wi-Fi experience, too — up to 150 Mbps.3
A6 Chip - Performance and graphics up to twice as fast. With battery life to spare.
Faster CPU performance.
With the new A6 chip, just about everything you do on iPhone 5 is
noticeably faster — up to twice as fast compared with the A5 chip. So
apps launch, web pages load, and email attachments appear almost
The A6 chip also offers graphics performance that’s up to twice as
fast as the A5. So you can power through graphics-intensive apps and
games. And enjoy higher frame rates for smoother, more realistic
Even better battery life.
Not only is the A6 chip custom designed to be fast, it’s custom
designed to work with iOS 6 to be extremely power efficient. So even at
its accelerated speed, iPhone 5 has more than enough battery power to
last throughout the day — up to 8 hours of browsing on a cellular
connection, up to 8 hours of talk time, and up to 10 hours of video
All-New EarPods - Completely re-imagined from the sound up
A breakthrough for ears everywhere.
Just like fingerprints, ears are unique parts of the body. Which means
earbud headphones fit differently on everyone. So rather than use the
speaker as the starting point for new headphones, Apple designers and
engineers started with the ear. They tested over a hundred prototype
designs on hundreds of people. All with the goal of creating earbuds
that rest comfortably inside — and stay inside — a variety of ear types,
while also producing quality sound. The result is a breakthrough for
earbud headphones: Apple EarPods. They’re unlike anything you’ve ever
seen or heard.
Enhanced audio on iPhone 5.
Apple EarPods are just the beginning of the improved audio experience
on iPhone 5. It’s designed with three microphones: one on the front, one
on the back, and one on the bottom. The front and back mics work
together to achieve beamforming — a technique that helps iPhone focus on
sound from the desired location for clearer audio. New noise-canceling
technology reduces background noise. So when you hold iPhone up to your
ear in a loud room, you hear what matters most: the voice on the other
iSight Camera. The world's most popular camera now captures more of the world
iPhone is the most popular camera in the world. For good reason.
Photos look so stunning, it’s hard to believe they were taken with a
mobile phone. And everything that made the iSight camera in iPhone 4S
the world’s favorite is now on iPhone 5 — and then some. The new
panorama feature lets you capture everything from a family reunion group
photo to a jaw-dropping shot of the Grand Canyon. With one smooth
motion you can shoot up to an impressive 240 degrees. The gyroscope, A6
chip, and Camera app work together to create one seamless,
high-resolution panorama up to 28 megapixels.
Even better features.
The Camera app also features improvements including 40 percent faster
photo capture, better low-light performance, and improved noise
reduction. So you can snap more shots with more detail and clarity than
ever before. View photos taken with iPhone 5
Enhanced HD video recording.
Imagine sidesplitting, adventure-filled, must-see flicks produced by
you and shot on iPhone 5. Record stunning 1080p HD video with the iSight
camera. Improved video stabilization helps prevent shaky footage. Face
detection for up to 10 faces means everyone can have a moment in the
spotlight. You can even take still photos as you record, so you can
capture small moments while shooting a big one.
FaceTime HD camera.
You use the front-facing camera on iPhone 5 to make FaceTime video
calls. And now those calls can happen over a cellular connection if
Wi-Fi isn’t available.5 The quality of FaceTime video calls is so
surprising, it’s as if you’re in the same room with whoever’s on the
other end. You can also use the front camera for taking self-portraits
or recording 720p HD video.
All-New Lighting Connector - Smaller, Smarter, Durable and Reversible
A new way to get connected.
Making iPhone 5 thinner and lighter required a pivotal change:
replacing the 30-pin connector with something newer, smaller, and
better. Introducing the Lightning connector. It features an all-digital,
eight-signal design that’s significantly more durable than the 30-pin
connector. Another brilliant feature of Lightning: It’s reversible.
Which means there’s no wrong way to plug in the cable.
Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
Soon many iPhone accessories will be Lightning compatible. But if you
have one that depends on the 30-pin connector, you can still connect it
to your iPhone 5. Simply use a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold
Maps. Take a turn for the better
Maps designed by Apple.
The new Maps app gives you a better way to find your way. Map elements
are vector based, which means graphics and text are incredibly sharp,
even when you zoom in. Pan around, and you’ll instantly notice how
smooth and responsive Maps is. Need directions from Point A to Point B?
Maps not only shows you how to get there, it tells you — out loud, turn
by turn. Maps also gives you real-time traffic information and reroutes
you to avoid delays. For a completely new perspective, switch to Flyover
and explore major metro areas from above with photo-realistic,
interactive 3D views.6
Siri - Even more of what you're asking for
Just ask Siri.
Siri is the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done, just
by asking. Talk to Siri as you would to a person: “Do I need an
umbrella?” or “Any modern art museums around here?” or “Where’s the
closest ATM?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you
mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer.
Then, just like a personal assistant, Siri provides you with the
information you need.7 iOS 6 - The world's most advanced mobile operating system
New Siri features.
With iOS 6, Siri understands more questions, knows more answers, and
gives you a lot more to talk about. Ask Siri about sports scores and
stats, where to eat, what movies to see — even ask Siri to make Facebook
posts or tweet for you. And Siri is fluent in more languages, so it
does more things in more countries.
The foundation of iPhone.
At the core of every iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is iOS. It includes
all the built-in apps you use every day and all the intuitive technology
— like Multi-Touch and Siri — that makes iPhone so advanced.7 With
every free iOS update comes even more capability for your devices.
You’ll find the latest version, iOS 6, already installed on iPhone 5. So
right out of the box, you get more than 200 new features to make the
things you do every day even better. iCloud - Your content. On all your devices
Everything you need. Everywhere you go.
iCloud is built right into iPhone 5. Just turn it on and you’ll have
instant access to all the things you need, whether you’re on your
iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC.8 New features in iOS 6 let you do
even more with iCloud. Share the photos you want with the people you
choose using Shared Photo Streams. Locate, lock, and recover your
misplaced phone easier than ever with Find My iPhone. Browse a web page
on one device and pick up where you left off on another device using
iCloud Tabs. And that’s just for starters.
Apps - Over 700,000 Apps available from the App Store
iPhone 5 is a remarkable device. The same goes for the apps that come
with it. Because they achieve the perfect balance of everything you need
to do with everything you want to do — from emailing your boss to
filming your road trip — on the large, 4-inch Retina display.
From the App Store
There are over 700,000 apps available from the App Store — many of
them free — to make iPhone more capable, more indispensable, and more
fun.9 Sign in to the App Store with your Apple ID, browse lots of
categories, and download any app you want.

DESIGN: Creating an new design meant inventing entirely new technology
When we envisioned the new iPhone, we landed on a remarkably thin and
light design. But it’s nearly impossible to make a device so thin and so
light without sacrificing features or performance.
We could have taken the easy way out and designed something more
reasonable and less remarkable. But we didn’t. If the technology didn’t
exist, we invented it. If a component wasn’t small enough, we
re-imagined it. If convention was standing in the way, we left it
behind. The result is iPhone 5: the thinnest, lightest, fastest iPhone
iPhone 5 is just 7.6 millimeters thin. To make that happen, Apple
engineers had to think small, component by component. They created a
nano-SIM card, which is 44 percent smaller than a micro-SIM. They also
developed a unique cellular solution for iPhone 5. The conventional
approach to building LTE into a world phone uses two chips — one for
voice, one for data. On iPhone 5, both are on a single chip. The
intelligent, reversible Lightning connector is 80 percent smaller than
the 30-pin connector. The 8MP iSight camera has even more features —
like panorama and dynamic low-light mode — yet it’s 20 percent smaller.
And the new A6 chip is up to 2x faster than the A5 chip but 22 percent
smaller. Even with so much inside, iPhone 5 is 20 percent lighter and 18
percent thinner than iPhone 4S.
It's the thinnest display ever. And it's the first of its kind
Making a thinner, lighter iPhone meant even the display had to be
thinner. Apple engineers accomplished that by creating the first Retina
display with integrated touch technology. Which means instead of a
separate layer of touch electrodes between display pixels, the pixels do
double duty — acting as touch-sensing electrodes while displaying the
image at the same time. With one less layer between you and what you see
on iPhone 5, you experience more clarity than ever before. All on a
display that’s 30 percent thinner than before.
iPhone 5 is made with a level of precision you'd expect from a finely crafted watch not a smartphone
Never before has this degree of fit and finish been applied to a
phone. Take the glass inlays on the back of iPhone 5, for instance.
During manufacturing, each iPhone 5 aluminum housing is photographed by
two high-powered 29MP cameras. A machine then examines the images and
compares them against 725 unique inlays to find the most precise match
for every single iPhone.
Look at iPhone 5 and you can’t help but notice the exquisite chamfer
surrounding the display. A crystalline diamond cuts this beveled edge.
It’s what gives iPhone 5 its distinctive lines. Fitting for a phone so
Aluminium and Glass Body
The back of iPhone 5 is made of anodized 6000 series aluminum — the
same material used in Apple notebooks — with inlays along the top and
bottom made of ceramic glass (on the white and silver model) or
pigmented glass (on the black and slate model).
During the assembly process, each iPhone 5 aluminum housing is
photographed by two high-powered 29MP cameras. A machine then compares
the images with 725 uniquely cut inlays to find a precise match.
Although the surface of the iSight camera is as clear as glass, it’s
not made of glass. It’s actually sapphire crystal, whose hardness is
second only to diamond on the scale of transparent materials. That means
the surface of the lens is far less likely to scratch.
Diamond-Cut Beveled Edge
A crystalline diamond is used to cut the chamfers of iPhone 5. This process gives the beveled edge its beautiful sheen.
Instead of starting with the speaker, we started with the Ear
It’s not easy to create earbud-style headphones that not only feel
good in your ears, but also sit securely in your ears. That’s because
everyone’s ears are different. Using optical scans combined with
silicone molding, Apple designers created 3D models of various ear types
to find a common shape across many different people. That shape led to
the unique look of the new Apple EarPods. Unlike traditional circular
earbuds, their design is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes
them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style
They’re more stable and durable, too. Apple engineers asked more than
600 people to test over 100 iterations of the Apple EarPods. Testers ran
on treadmills in extreme heat and extreme cold. They performed various
cardio workouts. They were even asked to shake their heads side to side,
up and down. The result: Apple EarPods provide stronger protection from
sweat and water, and they’re remarkably stable in the ear. Which means
they stay in, even when you’re on the go. Fit and Stability Research -
Apple’s Industrial Design team tested 124 different prototypes of the
EarPods on over 600 people. Its not just about comfort. It's also about acoustics
At the same time Apple designers were trying to define an ideal earbud
shape, Apple sound engineers — acousticians — were focused on improving
sound quality. First, they established a target sound for the Apple
EarPods. That target: a person sitting in a room listening to
The biggest determinant of what you hear from any speaker is the
movement of its diaphragm. The inward and outward motion is what creates
sound. But earbud speaker diaphragms are typically made from a single
material, which can limit sound output.
So Apple acousticians re-engineered an earbud speaker diaphragm with
both rigid and flexible materials to minimize sound loss and maximize
sound output. Adding to the superior audio quality are strategically
placed acoustic vents. The most notable of these vents is the one
located in the stem of each EarPod. It allows air inside the stem, which
acts as an acoustic chamber, to flow out. So you hear deeper, richer
bass tones. The overall audio quality of Apple EarPods is so impressive,
they rival high-end headphones that cost hundreds of dollars more.
The thought and consideration we put into Apple products go well beyond design
How a product looks and performs matters, but so does its impact on
the environment. That’s why nearly every Apple product is made from
highly recyclable materials like aluminum, and why we refuse to use
harmful toxins in our components.
Every iPhone starting with iPhone 3GS is free of brominated flame
retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). That includes our newest
iPhone — iPhone 5. In fact, Apple has one of the strictest BFR-free and
PVC-free standards in the industry. And we expect the same from our
suppliers. We go so far as to disassemble our products into individual
components and materials in our Cupertino lab. Then we test them using
many methods, including X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and ion
chromatography. We do this to ensure that every product we release meets
our environmental standards.
