Apple As expected, Apple announced its new iPhone tonight, dubbed the iPhone 5. The rumours and leaks nailed it, with the most prominent feature being the move from 3.5" to 4" (1136x640). Due to the way iOS handles resolutions, applications need to be adapted for this new display, and if they are not, they will be letterboxed (black bars). It has a faster processor, better camera, LTE, and several other improvements, while the. As always, Apple does it right: shipping 21 September in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore - the rest of the world will follow later.

Who keeps bring up this wireless charging crap?

Wireless(inductive) charging is about 1/3 less efficient use of power, it has huge waste compared to direct charging.

Someone did the math and figured if iphones used inductive charging instead of direct cables, it would require more than ONE GIGAWATTS more power use. That would be very irresponsible of a company like Apple that cares about the environment.

Not to mention how stupid it would be to have to have to use inductive plates to charge, when you want to use the phone at the same time its charging, or want to have it suction cuped to your winshield for maps, or want to charge it on the USB port on the plane etc..

People are just whiners and dumb about this stuff.
