Why iPhone 5 Features Will Break Sales Records

Posted in Communication by Joe Colburn on the September 25th, 2011

In just a couple weeks, the world is anxiously expecting to have access to Apple’s latest model (or models) from the incredibly popular iPhone line. Each previous iPhone launch has been met with swarms of orders, long lines, and even people camping out for days. When I bought my iPhone 4 three weeks after launch, I still waited four hours in line and some people behind me went home empty handed. There’s no question that the iPhone 5 launch will produce similar results. Despite the vast array of Android devices on the market, the iPhone 5 is poised to sell better than any previous model, and the features will make it happen.

A5 Processor

This next-generation iPhone is going to boast the A5 processor, which is what the sleek iPas 2 runs on. The A5 contains a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with NEON SIMD accelerator and a dual core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU. This means you’ll be able to get twice as much done, working twice as fast.

Better iPhone Display

One of the clear differences between my old iPhone 3G S and the iPhone 4 was the gorgeous Retina display. A lot of sources are saying the new iPhone could ship with a 3.7″ to 4″ display and better resolution compared to the iPhone 4’s 3.5″ display. It may not seem like a lot, but it feels like a big difference with the increasing access to TV and movies through apps from providers like Hulu and Netflix.

Increased iPhone Camera Resolution

To keep up with the competition, Apple is expected to increase the camera resolution with up to 8MP images. This isn’t huge, but it’s pretty good for a phone and will be a nice improvement to the already great images the iPhone 4 produces. There was also talk of an Apple patent for 3D camera technology which could make an appearance in an iPhone, although this hasn’t been confirmed.

IOS 5 and iCloud

With Apple’s new iMessage instant messaging service, Twitter integration, tabbed browsing, and more, IOS 5 promises over 200 new features and updates to help you use your iPhone 5 faster and more intuitively. A few of the features I’m looking forward to are the updated notifications system, faster photos with a physical shutter release and wireless sync with iTunes. Surely, many older iPhone models won’t be able to upgrade to IOS 5 and some long-awaited features may even convert Android users.

Clouds are so popular these days. With iCloud, you can access photos, videos and more across all of your IOS devices and it’s integrated naturally throughout IOS 5.

Buying An iPhone 5?

Weather you plan on buying a Vodafone iPhone 5 or one from another network, you’ll want to think ahead. The announcement is expected October 4th and the iPhone 5 will begin selling soon after. Have your time off request form ready to go and set aside some cash in your upgrade budget if you’re going to be an early adopter. Additionally, plan ahead for accessories and budget accordingly. You can also avoid long lines and frustration by ordering online. How ever you order, I’m guessing you’ll likely be a part of record breaking sales for Apple.

    I hope to hell that the iPhone 5 will be 4G LTE compatible and support high speed networks. The 3G is just achingly painful on Verizon’s network.

    I do think it is a great phone but with all the bad press I would wait to see how they fair after a few months.

    Justin: I agree. I’m more excited right now about the software update, but if they go 4G LTE, that’s a big win.

    Sourish: got a link?

    It’s only just over an hour from now until the iPhone’s unveiled – exciting stuff!

    I think you’ve got the main things they’ll announce. There’s also the rumour that there could be 2 versions of the phone – the iPhone 5 and a cheaper iPhone 4S. We’ll know very soon…!

    In retrospect where it is not so successful launch that Apple came up with, only an iPhone 4S, an upgrade of the iPhone 4. it will probably not be a big seller. The big news in the iPhone 4S is digital camera, 8 megapixels, improved video piece in 1080p HD resolution, faster data transfer 14.4 Mbps, I do not know if this is enough for a new success for Apple.
