The iPhone 5, announced on Sept. 12, racked up a record-breaking 2 million preorders during its first 24 hours of sale, doubling the record set by the previous model.
The iPhone 5 has a taller display (4 inches), lighter weight (3.95 ounces), a faster processor and 4G LTE capabilities. It also comes with a new dock connector designed to take the new size of the iPhone 5 into account. This means that all accessories used with previous iPhone models are now obsolete on the iPhone 5.
At first glance, the iPhone 5 looks very similar to the iPhone 4S with the exception of the taller screen – which is something that the online community immediately fixated on through memes such as the ones seen here:
It seems that a lot of people, including Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, were not impressed with the newest model of the iPhone.
On the other hand, there are a lot of people – at least 2 million of these people – who have been waiting for this announcement from Apple with baited breath.
Even if the list of differences between the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 may not seem very impressive, it seems like there are still plenty of fans who think otherwise.
