Blog-photo-iphoneThe iPhone 5 has launched! And chaps, I managed to get myself one! I’m so thrilled with myself and let me tell you, it was well worth the long wait.

 Of course, my pals at BullGuard were spot on with what they told us about the new specs on the new iPhone 5, pre-launch. To recap:

  • Slimmer design. 18% thinner and 20% lighter than the iPhone 4S, now made of aluminium and glass
  • 4” retina display. View your content on a bigger screen
  • A6 chip. Performance at twice the speed
  • iSight. Camera now shoots panorama
  • iOS 6. An impressively upgraded mobile operating system

That all sounds fantastic, but I’m sure you want to know what it’s like to hold and interact with one of these fine devices! Take a peak at my pic, I look quite cool!

It’s GLORIOUS. So fast, so sleek. And while I’m still learning the new tools and all of the brilliant things that iOS 6 has to offer, I’m having fun doing so, and am not feeling in the least bit lost or overwhelmed by the new capabilities. Besides, with the new and improved Siri by my side, what’s to worry about? Perhaps she and I will take a trip up the countryside to really test out the panorama camera functionality.

So what’s the downside?

Those cheeky chaps at Apple have figured out a way to get me to buy not only a new phone, but new accessories for it as well. I bought a new connector too, because the original dock connector is no more. The new Lightning connector is an 8 pin connector, whereas the old version consisted of 30 pins, and in order to create a slimmer, lighter device, the old dock connector had to go. It’s important to note, the new iPod Touch and iPod Nano will also have the Lightning connector. As frustrating as it may be, I don’t suppose there’s much we can do about it. We’ll just have to wait for those new Bose speakers to come out with a Lightning compatible model…

How can you switch your content between phones safely?

One of the most pesky things about getting a new phone is getting all of your e-mails, pictures, music, tasks and contacts safely over to your new phone. I’ve never felt more confident than when I use BullGuard’s Mobile Backup 12. Even my calendar makes it over intact!

Thanks to BullGuard Migration, all it takes is 2 clicks to move everything from your old device to your new one, regardless of the operating system. Do you currently have a Blackberry or an Android and are contemplating the new iPhone 5? BullGuard’s mobile backup app can help you make the switch, simply and safely.

So, grab Mobile Backup 12 so that you can start playing with your fully functioning new iPhone 5 and look almost as cool as me!
