Apple dawns super phone

On Jan. 92007, a 4.5-inch, 4.8-ounce baby iPhone was brought into this crazy, technology-driving world.

Since 2007, the iPhone has really grown up. Going through the changes, Apple has released six versions of the iPhone. The most recent version is the iPhone 5, which was announced last Wednesday.

I seem to be only one who thinks the new iPhone didn’t need to be bigger. It was the perfect the way it was.

Apple should stop trying to make it taller and thinner and go back to being the innovative company I love. Change the stuff on the inside before changing the stuff on the outside.

They already made the phone talk. Why not make it do other humanly functions like clean the kitchen, walk the dog – hell, why not give it super powers? Just make it different.

Apple’s most recent innovative advances to the iPhone have been to introduce the retina screen and create Siri. If Apple thinks that making the iPhone 5 18 percent thinner, 20 percent lighter and 12 percent less volume is a huge difference from the 4s, they are wrong.

I can hear the creators at Apple now: “Let’s make it slimmer and lighter, call it something different and jack the price up on it.”

Don’t get me wrong – there are some slight changes that make the phone more appealing than its predecessor.

The iPhone 5’s two big features are the 4G LTE wireless technology and A6 chip that powers the phone.

The A6 chip is twice as fast as the A5 chip in the iPhone 4s. The chip allows web pages and apps to load faster. Oh yeah, the battery is supposed to last longer, too. But they have been saying that since the first one.

Basically, the 4G LTE is supposed to make browsing the web and downloading faster, but Apple’s version of LTE is suppose to make it one of the fastest phones on the market. 

All that being said – I’m probably going to buy one.
