So FINALLY the anticipated iPhone 5 has been released into the public domain for purchase to Camping Apple Enthusiasts (pending Apples Website Domain). Where over the years the once perfectly contented Iphone consumer has been short lived due to Apples innovative genes acting as a catalyst to consumers desires to trade in their beloved existing iPhone for a newer model. As stated by the american comedian Jimmy Kimmel who states that the general reaction to the release of an upgraded iPhone is “why would they make a new iPhone those bas*****”….it does ruin your current iPhone’s current status or personal value to a degree doesn’t it!!!

Various observations and reviews have been uploaded on YouTube be Tech geeks and apple experts. One interesting trend is that some enthusiasts queuing for the iPhone 5 were in fact queuing for a worthy cause and not simply fulfilling their own personal gain. As stated by Jane McEntegart Men use Iphone 5queue to raise money for charity in London along with their New York counterparts. Where the gadgets are put up for auction on Ebay to ultimately benefit to their causes.

At the tender age of five since the emergence of the original iPhone in 2007, it is evident that the iPhone itself very much has a short term life span where  generally a newer model soon replaced the existing model. The interesting fact about the iPhone 5 compared to its predecessors (Whom are still in existence ofcouse) is that more emphasise is notably placed on the cosmetic qualities of the product itself such as its design, weight and height. It appears the iPhone 5 has reached its growth sport  as it has not only gotten taller but thinner too, referred by ifixitmyself  stating the iPhone has finally hit adolescence.

However we all know too well that beauty is on the inside and being tall and thin is not everything, however, from its predecessors the design and cosmetic appeal have always been important to both Apple and Apple users. The question I myself hold is how much more can Apple improve their iPhones? will cosmetic improvements supersede the internal functionality? from the iPhone 6 to the promised iPhone 9, will no doubt have reached the height of a supermodel by then. The question is will it mature sooner than that?
