iPhone 5 Unveiled, Available on Sept. 21

The new iPhone 5 will be available at the Apple Stores at Westfield Brandon mall and International Plaza Sept. 21 starting at 8 a.m. It will also be available at Verizon, AT&T and Sprint stores in New Tampa.

Are you itching to get your hands on the new iPhone 5?

Well, you'll have to wait another week. Apple's newest marvel won't be available at Apple stores until 8 a.m. Sept. 21.

But if you just can't wait that long, you can preorder the phone online at Apple's website starting Sept. 14.

Why Switch to an iPhone 5?

According to Apple's media release, the new phone is "the thinnest, lightest, fastest iPhone ever."

iPhone 5 is just 7.6 millimeters thick. To accomplish this, Apple engineers created a nano-SIM card, which is 44 percent smaller than a micro-SIM.

They also developed a unique cellular solution for iPhone 5. The conventional approach to building LTE into a world phone uses two chips — one for voice, one for data. On iPhone 5, both are on a single chip. The intelligent, reversible Lightning connector is 80 percent smaller than the 30-pin connector. The 8MP iSight camera has even more features — like panorama and dynamic low-light mode — yet it’s 20 percent smaller. And the new A6 chip is up to 2x faster than the A5 chip but 22 percent smaller. Even with so much inside, iPhone 5 is 20 percent lighter and 18 percent thinner than iPhone 4S.

The new iPhone 5 starts at $199.

In addition to the Apple Store at Westfield Brandon, the new iPhone will be available at the Apple Store at International Plaza, 2223 N. West Shore Blvd., Tampa.

Call 813-413-3400 for the Brandon store and 813-393-4720 for the International Plaza store.
