Time to scalp your Justin Bieber tickets. You’re going to need the extra cash, because the iPhone 5 is officially here! What’s so different, you ask? How about a bigger 4 inch screen, twice the memory and a 720p HD front facing camera. They are also ditching their old Google Maps platform for their own mapping system. Hello, turn by turn directions! A new iOS 6 software update will be available for your phone by next week. Price is still $199 for a 16gig, and you can pre-order it on September 14th.
That’s not the only news for Apple. Other new products are a bigger slimmer iPod Nano, Shuffle, and an all new iPod Touch, that really focuses on taking photos. You might also want to ditch those Beats By Dre headphones, because Apple will have you covered in that department too.
Still not sure if the 5 is for you? See what the twitter world has to say.
Can't wait for the new iPhone 5.
I've had this mint condition, perfectly good, antique iPhone 4 for over a year now. Embarrassing.—

Unless the iPhone 5 can also serve as a cushion and/or is made of never-ending dark chocolate, I'm not interested.—
