One of the interesting changes is a battery layout with space underneath the trackpad being free of battery cells. Instead of battery cells in that area, Apple has opted to mount the flash storage, thus allowing access to the trackpad if it needs to be replaced.
Last night many users of iOS device reported about the issue preventing them from making new purchases or redownloading previous purchases from App Store. When users attempted to make a purchase they were repeatedly asked to agree to App Store’s new Terms & Conditions.

With Apple’s retail locations and carriers taking delivery of iPhone 5 stocks last night, a number of heists have occurred in different parts of the world. While Apple’s retail locations were full of employees preparing stores for the iPhone 5 launch, carriers’ retail stores, which were left unattended last night, became the main target for thieves.

First third-party 30-pin Lightning adapters just appeared on Amazon. The manufacturer is the company called Nanotech that is now offering pre-orders for them.

“The new update will mean that the 8GB version of the iPhone 4 will be the entry-level iPhone, probably given away free on £20 per month contracts, as the 3GS is currently”.
The Telegraph also notes that iPhone 5 will come in three different capacities, probably the same 64 GB/32 GB/16 GB line seen with the iPhone 4S.
Moving the iPhone 4 into the position that is currently occupied by the iPhone 3GS would allow more carriers to offer a free iPhone, because the iPhone 4 is sold in both CDMA and GSM versions while the iPhone 3GS is only offered in GSM version.
The iPhone 3GS would probably be most missed by customers who want to buy contract-free smartphones. Currently Apple sells contract-free, unlocked iPhone 3GS for $375 in the U.S. and at higher prices in other countries such as $455 in China. If the company elected to continue selling the device along with its three other iPhone models, it would have to cut the price even further.
