As claimed by Apple, "the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever" finally saw the light of the day Wednesday when the company announced its sixth generation iPhone, the "iPhone 5," in San Francisco.

The Apple iPhone 5 comes with the long-rumored 4-inch Retina display, a much faster Apple-designed A6 chip and faster wireless technology -- all while claiming to have an even better battery life. The new flagship handset runs on iOS 6, which has over 200 new features including the new Maps app, Facebook integration, Passbook organization and additional Siri features and languages.

As pointed out by Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, the iPhone 5 is 7.6mm thick, weighs only 112 grams and is constructed "entirely" out of glass and aluminum.
