Apple iPhone 5 interface walkthrough

The iPhone 5 is the first iPhone with a screen larger than 3.5 inches. Because of this, both Apple and developers have had to tweak their software so that it takes advantage of the bigger display. But while it'll certainly take some time for developers to update all their apps, Apple has of course made sure to optimize its software. What changes has the new screen size caused? Well, it'd be a bit of an overstatement if we say that there's anything groundbreaking, but the phone has certainly become even more functional and easy to use because of this...

iFans aren't exactly known for being tech savy, that's why they buy apple's novelties.

You need it for those people who mistakenly buy a Samsung Galaxy S phone thinking it was a iPhone. And I did not say that. It was the Apple lawyers. :P

Actually you can find it in Windows phone and RIM phones, several android phone also have that... Nice try for sarcastic... But you can't change my mind to choose iPhone :)

Wait wait wait. Dozens if not hundreds of Android devices come all the time with different user interfaces and different screen sizes. NOT A SINGLE ARTICLE on phonearena ever dealt with a walk-through on ANY of them. Despite the fact that the difference in user experience between one Android device and another is like night and day. Yet the one single time Apple makes a new phone with THE SAME User interface, and just a slightly taller screen - phonearena immediately makes a walk-through article about it. Where is the goddamn logic and common sense? This is just absurd! Why give in to this bias? Why not treat the iPhone in the same way like every other phone out there? What makes it so special? The fruit logo on it's back?

Android users are more intelligent and they don't need a guide at all and any amount of walkthroughs on IP will never make them switch :)

lol well that kinda explains it :D Still - there is wayyy too much bias towards Apple on this site.

No where n his short article did he mention one thing about android users switching. Also before u run off at the mouth know this, a sex offender got caught cuz he used the GPS on his android phone that he had newly purchased, and used his camera to photo and video himself with his victims. So if that's what some android users r using their extra intelligence for, then I want to remain less intelligent.

LOL!!! So now you are associating Android users with sex offenders? There couldnt possibly be an iPhone sex offender in the world could there??? You are trying way too hard.. This article is not required nor is your comment in any way useful in an argument the only part of your comment that holds any water is the part where you say "I want to remain less intelligent" Im not one to toss comments like this but seriously lol pointless for you to associate sex offenders with people who use Android.

You totally and 100% completely missed my point please go back and reread my article reread it 1000 times because you missed my point a 1000 times

"No where n his short article did he mention one thing about android users switching" That was your key point.. so why didn't you just keep it to the point rather than go into the sex offender bs? Its off topic.. and moot to bring up. "before u run off at the mouth know this, a sex offender got caught cuz he used the GPS on his android phone that he had newly purchased, and used his camera to photo and video himself with his victims." Read this a few times and tell me its relevant. If it was someone who happened to note it was an iPhone do you think it would be somewhat offensive to people who own iPhones such as yourself and would you find it necessary for someone to throw iPhone users under the bus and make baseless claims if the tables were turned??

Bro I can't believe u r still missing the point lol. That's crazy dude. Look I didnt mean to offend anyone n the droid camp. Some one that I replied to said android users were more intelligent than iOS users. Well that particular a droid user wasnt. That's my point. I swear I didn't meant to offend droiders. My best friend is a droider and one of the best people I know.

There are people in both camps who are intelligent and also ones who are stupid and very fanboy oriented so pay no mind to rustic hes just trolling. I don't bother with the people who pull the smarts card defending their OS.. its just an OS everyone has a preference but don't get offended when they say iOS fans are stupid because for them to even say that is stupid to begin with. Ill say there's far too much hype for said brand because lets get serious.. its cult like lol. I can say I dislike those people but it has nothing to do with their intelligence.. its more so blind love for a company that bothers me. For anyone to say Apple does NOT overcharge for their services and says they are NOT a greedy company needs to get their eyes checked.. and head checked. I have no problem with people who love their iPhones.. just the ones who think its the best thing since sliced bread and are SOOO amazed by "new innovative additions to iOS" when its services already given and have been given by other companies (not solely Google or Samsung) but other companies for quite some time. Normal Joes and Janes using the iPhone because they like it is great by all means enjoy them I personally have owned a 4 and 4s and been in the Android camp since the OG Droid its just that rabid Apple zealot mentality that annoys the hell out of me. Sorry for the rant prolly off on a tangent lol was just taking a breath from work. ;)

Good post bro. Had to thumb that up. I agree, I hate the brash bashers from both camps also. It's just an OS for crying out loud.

Thumbs right back atcha. Both groups need to just chill a bit.. including the companies in regards to petty lawsuits.. man up and just put out products so your consumers can enjoy them eh lol.

In case you were in too much of a hurry to strike back, my statement was a reply was to "ilia1986" so you missed the bus :)

Good, bad, smart, dumb, criminals, and non criminals use android and iOS and windows and Symbian and BB. Pointless insults r unnecessary when u don't know all, or speak for all people bro. Jus sayin.

It's this kind of attitude that makes me hate the android community. Really?, Android users are more intelligent? My bus driver uses an android phone while my circuits professor uses an iPhone. It's all about preference not intelligence.

That's true, but I'm a bus driver with an iPhone too lol. Preference is what it's all about ur rite.
