An evolution, not a revolution, is how the latest iPhone has been described. The iPhone 5 is thinner than the iPhone 4S, and has a longer screen, which adds an additional row of app icons.

In what can be described as a “first world problem,” many tech news pundits lamented that the iPhone 5 was incompatible with their iPhone external devices and accessories that used the old interface.
