Color accuracy is a big deal, since an increasing number of photographers are using the iPhone and accessories for some of their video and photo work.
HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA are also built in.
LTE is a single chip, a single radio, a dynamic antenna that can switch between networks.
"LTE is the most complicated technology ever brought to this Earth."
"You can imagine the challenge the team faced of trying to match the iPhone 4S in battery life. But we've not just matched it, we've exceeded it."
And that was it for battery life. Blink and you missed it.
Time to talk about the camera. 8 megapixel, 2364x2448 resolution.
That's still excellent -- Apple tends to meet the battery metrics it touts, so if I can really get 8 hours of LTE usage, I'm going to be very happy. That's a workday. Finally.
One thing about the iPhone 5 -- it's very shiny around those edges. Almost Tron-like.
$199 for 16GB up to $399 for 64GB.
iPhone 4 will now be free. the 8GB model, at least.
When? Pre order on Friday. Ship one week later, Sept 21.
US, UK, Canada, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, all on the 21st.
100 countries, 240 carriers by the end of the year -- "our fastest phone rollout ever."
iOS6 will launch September 19!
Looks like the 3GS is no more
iOS6 will work on all phones and tablets back to the 3GS.
"we have something near and dear to our hearts to talk to you about today -- music."
This'll be the new iTunes, then. Finally.
New iTunes available in "late October."
It looks like the new iTunes will eliminate the need for a lot of the mini-player apps like Ecoute and Coversutra
350 million iPods sold in total; "we add millions and millions every quarter."
exciting changes to the iPod lineup, starting with the Nano.
"We really wanted to take the opportunity to reinvent the Nano."
a really large display, easy to use controls, thin and light ... and a lightning connector.
The new, 7th generation iPod Nano. A teeny tiny device in the hand, 40% thinner than its predecessor.
the volume controls take up about half the side of the gadget.
2.5 inch display, the biggest ever in the Nano -- and it's multitouch.
It's great to see musical guests back at Apple events. In the past I've seen U2, Norah Jones, Dave Matthews and many more at these things. This is Cook's first.
I hope the video of the event, which Apple will likely post later, captures just how fantastic this audio is. The band's levels are matched to perfection.
And one more song from the Fighters: "Walk"
@jwhitley That's what we're expecting too.
Rumor had it that we'll see another Apple event in October. I'd say that's extremely likely at this stage.
It's great to see all these journalists nodding along while furiously typing.
Foo Fighters have been around 18 years, and this is the first time they've played an Apple event. What took them so long? ;)
