$1.1 billion spent by web giant - but why? Here's all you need to know
Apple finally launched its latest beauty in San Francisco last night. MSN Tech and Gadgets was at the invite-only simultaneous broadcast of the event in central London - here's all you need to know about the iPhone 5.
Ignore the fact that the iPhone 5 is in fact the sixth-generation iPhone - this is Apple's way of saying that this is a big step away from the iPhone 4S which was cosmetically near-identical to its predecessor. And it's certainly strikingly different from the look of earlier iPhones, though just as clearly related to them all.

Apple changed very little but one change that will be noticed is the new connector. if you have a nice Bose or other expensive docks you'll have to shell out over £20 for another adaptor to adapt to the old one.
Apple can of course get away with it as the largest company in the world by stock value.
The fact that Apple is arrogant towards its customers probably escapes most of the kids who want the phone because that is what the rest of the herd considers it a "cool" thing to have.
"So should you upgrade? Yes, for the thinness and lightness alone"
How ridiculous. They weren't exactly heavy or cumbersome to start with, and there's nothing ground breaking here, and I couldn't care less that it's 7.6 or 8.6 mm thick etc. Why can't phone manufacturers make phones, say 10mm thick so we get a proper battery life that lasts more than a day and a half?
