iPhone 5, APPLE INC.
The iPhone 5 is the biggest overhaul to the line since the release of the 3G in 2008.
Compared with other high-end smartphones, however, it's more of a catch-up move.
The 4-inch screen is larger than previous iPhones, but smaller than many Android devices.
The iPhone now works with 4G LTE cellular networks, something many Android devices already did.
The iPhone 5 doesn't break much new ground, but it supports the things that really set the iPhone apart: the slick, reliable operating system and the multitude of high-quality, third-party applications.
Released in September, 2012, the iPhone 5 is getting old. But don't expect a new model until at least this fall.
A software update, iOS 7, is also expected for free then.
