Thinner, lighter aluminium case and improved accessories
The new iPhone 5 weighs in at just 112 grams, making it 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S. There is also a new anodised aluminium backplate on the white phone and a slate black metal backplate on the black phone, replacing the glass rear of the device. Other new changes include the new 9-pin Lightning dock connector (replacing the old 30 pin connector) and new EarPod earphones which are designed to be more comfortable and durable than the previous Apple earphones.
