    Announced today was the iPhone 5s and 5c from Apple.

    By far the biggest change is the new A7 Chipset which is now a 64 bit processor and is around 2x as fast as the previous model iPhone 5.

    M7 Chipset , dedicated processor to detecting motion that works independantly of the A7 processor. Apple have introduced new API's that programmers can take advantage of to develop a whole range of fitness, tracking apps. ( Yes we can use our iPhones as lap timers)

    Runs opengles version 3.0 ( latest graphic standards)
    - Advanced rendering affects - Awesome Gaming / Video effects similar to desktop pcs




    The camera has also received multiple upgrades and will enhance the current trend of people no longer owning the traditional point and click cameras. The camera on the front ( yep the one used to take selfies) is also being upgraded. You can also take up to 10 photos a second with the burst mode on the camera.

    The camera also has a slow motion feature which is really awesome, the video camera captures at 720p at 120 frames per second. 52 mins at in the keynote link attached.

    Leather cases are available to purchase.

    And the crowds did yawn.

    Seriously though, I've never given less of a fuck about Apple gadgets than I have currently.

    All the "gurus" I work with profess all kinds of wizardry thanks to using iDevices.

    I call it bullshit

    Disclaimer : I own an iPhone5 and it's OK apart from the lack of UV filter on the camera.

    《Android user.
    Iphones have always struck me as a phone with a few extra features, nice screens and great touch sensitivity.
    Android's are more like mini pc's you can make calls with lol

    Give it 3-5 years and your employer will be asking you to use your smart phone as a pc in the work place.

    Disagree.

    Smart phones have a function and though that function may change, the revolution in the I.T. world seems to be spinning back towards dumb terminals

    HaaS

    Thanks citrix, VM, cloud etc.

    I totally do not see the bloke here at work running a $6k PC with $10k of Solidworks being ported to iOS or Android. Ever.

    Virtual desktop will be still in the background, though your "terminal" to access it, what you use to take phone calls etc will be from a smart phone / tablet that you connect into a docking station.

    It is in our roadmap at work

    Too many bullshit manufacturers at play to come up with a unified business solution.

    For your roadmap to work, apple would need to have a killer threesome with microsoft and android.

    Next step, possibly "dumb tablet"

    Still don't see people playing counterstrike or using solidworks on it

    Nup, just a virtual desktop client on the phone / tablet and a docking station that accepts an normal monitor / keyboard.

    You can already run voip phone software on a android, iphone etc. and sound via an ICA session has been working for about a decade.
