How Apple made the iPad mini 23% thinner and 53% lighter






Yesterday Apple introduced the new iPad mini which has the same resolution as iPad 2 in a smaller 7.9 inch form factor that's two thirds the price of the latest iPad. But last year, it was more likely that Apple would make the iPod touch larger than reducing the size of the iPad. Apple went far further and did both, expanding the Retina Display iPod touch (along with iPhone 5), and scaling the iPad down.

This effectively gives Apple two very different new devices with nearly the same pixel count and very similar prices: the 4 inch iPod touch ($299/32GB and $399/64GB) and 7.9 inch iPad mini (16GB/$329; 32GB/$429; 64GB/$529; each with a 4G LTE cellular option for $130 more).

AppleInsider and 9to5Mac independently posted a list of 24 different model numbers said to be for Apple's "iPad mini" scheduled for introduction at a media event next Tuesday.

According to the list, the iPad Mini will be available in four basic device variants P101, P103, P105, and P107

Each of those four variants is available in three different flavors designated "GOOD", "BETTER", and "BEST" - these ones refer to three different capacities (anything between 8 and 64 Gb). The A/B designations would continue to refer to two color options.

Apple announces the new iPhone 5



iphone5

Today Apple introduced the new iPhone 5. It has a new design, however it looks a bit like tall iPhone 4S.

It is 18% thinner than the 4S, just 7.6mm. It's even 20% percent lighter at 112 grams. The in-cell retina display is 4-inch with 1136 x 640 resolution. Apple says new iPhone 5 has a better color saturation with full sRGB rendering. That new longer screen allows for an extra set of icons to be displayed on the home screen, and first party apps have already been tweaked to take advantage of additional pixels. The tweaked ratio puts the iPhone 5 display closer to 16:9, but it's not quite there.

iPhone 5 supports worldwide LTE as well as HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA. 802.11n Wi-Fi can connect at 2.4ghz and 5ghz. Performance is said to be 2 times faster with new A6 processor. iSight camera features 8-megapixel sensor, backside flash, hybrid IR filter, five-element lens, sapphire lens, f/2.4 aperture, next-generation ISP, spatial noise reduction, smart filter, better low-light performance, 40 percent faster on photo capture, and HD video recording (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio.
Front FaceTime HD camera has 1.2MP sensor, improved video stability and is capable of recording HD video (720p) up to 30 fps. Audio system was also improved. iPhone 5 has 3 mics and improved speakers.

iPhone 5 To Launch At The Same Prices As iPhone 4S



iresq_iphone5_4s_front_comparison-500x390Comparison photo of iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 assembled from parts

According to 9to5Mac, Apple will introduce six versions of the iPhone 5 with code names "N42" at its media event on 12th September. The source indicates that Apple will launch white and black models at the same $199/$299/$399 prices carried by the iPhone 4S. This means that the iPhone 5’s configurations will probably remain at the same 16GB/32GB/ 64GB capacities that are available for iPhone 4S. The report said:

“Here is the part codes matrix for the new iPhone launch from a source at a well-known U.S. retail chain: N42A-USA -$199, N42B-USA-$199, N42A-USA-$299, N42B-USA-$299, N42A-USA-$399, N42B-USA-$399. A + B signify black and white”.

It is expected that Apple will accompany the iPhone launch with a number of accessories, and pre-orders will reportedly begin “soon after” iPhone 5 introduction.
