--The iPhone 5 is 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S.

--Same retina display, 326 pixels per inch, as its predecessor. 4-inch display.

--1136 x 640, 19:6 aspect ratio

--Touch sensors integrated into the display itself, rather than layer on top.

--LTE, a single chip, a single radio, a dynamic antenna that can switch between networks.

--In the U.S., working with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint; Bell, Virgin et al in Canada; Singtel and Telstra in Australasia; Deutsche Telecom and EE in the UK.

--Still no iPhone for T-Mobile

--Very little time spent talking about battery life

--Camera updates: Spatial noise reduction, smart filter ... bottom line, photos should look better and be captured 40 percent faster.

--Panorama photo stitching feature
