The iPhone 5 will go on sale in the U.S. and eight other countries next Friday, Sept. 21.
Even though it’s taller than the iPhone 4S, it’s lighter, thanks to a new screen technology that makes the whole phone thinner.
The bigger screen — 4 inches (10.16 centimeters) measured diagonally — creates room for another row of icons on the screen and lets widescreen movies fit better. The calendar will now show five days at a time instead of just three. Previous iPhone models carried 3.5-inch (8.89-centimeter) screens.
