Apple unveils latest iPhone

We all knew it was coming but now it's official - Apple has finally taken the wraps off of the iPhone 5.

Announced yesterday at a press event in San Francisco, the new iPhone offers a 4" retina display (1,136 × 640 px at 326 ppi), a slimmer, lighter form factor and a new processor. Crucially, the new iPhone offers support for 4G LTE networks which are currently being rolled out in select parts of the UK.

What's not so cool is that the new iPhone uses a completely new, proprietary dock connector. This means that any peripherals bought for earlier iPhone models will become obsolete.

There is some good news for European customers, as EU law requires that all smartphones support charging via microUSB connector. However, if you want to charge your iPhone through a regular microUSB cable, you'll need to buy an adapter from Apple, which will set you back a cool £15.

Also announced at Apple's press event were it's next generation iPods, although surprisingly there was no mention of the hotly anticated iPad Mini.
