Following months of speculation, Apple has officially announced its newest iPhone, which does in fact go by the numerical title of iPhone 5. The numerous leaked photos were accurate, the new iPhone is all glass and aluminum, 7.6mm thick and 18% thinner than the 4S. Another exciting aesthetically is the larger 4-inch display, which will allow for another row of icons on your home screen. The most exciting thing to most is the addition of LTE, “ultra fast wireless” is what Apple is calling it, in the U.S. AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint will all be supporting LTE.
