Apple’s new iPhone 5 will be coming to Australia on September 21. The phone will be made of only aluminum and glass.

Width: 7.6 mm
Weight: 112 grams

Hardware upgrades include a new A6 chip, and much faster Wifi technology. It’s also important to note the camera remains 7 Mega pixels and the dock connector to charge the phone has shrunk considerably.

The screen size has also increased by 1 inch.

The new iPhone will come with iOS 6 – Apple’s latest mobile operating operating system with over 200 new user features such as:

  • New Maps app with Apple-designed cartography,
  • Turn-by-turn navigation
  • Flyover™ view
  • Facebook integration for Contacts and Calendar,
  • Ability to post Facebook status updates directly from Notification Center
  • Passbook
  • New Siri features, including support for more languages, easy access to sports scores, restaurant recommendations and movie listings;
  • Siri and Facebook-enabled apps like Photos, Safari and Maps
  • Shared Photo Streams via iCloud.

Good news is that the LTE (long-term evolution) 4G functionality will work on the Telstra, Optus and Virgin Mobile 4G networks in Australia.
