Apple had their big conference earlier this week. Despite all sorts of speculation that a new iPhone was going to be announced, the event concluded without any such revelation. I am probably one of the few Apple lovers who was actually happy about the lack of a new iPhone. Seeing as I just bought my iPhone 5 last month, I wasn’t looking forward to seeing it become obsolete so soon. At least now I can cling to the illusion non-obsolescence a little longer!
I do have to say that I love my iPhone 5. I upgraded from a 3GS, which has been a fantastic phone, but was beginning to show its age. The iPhone 5 is so much faster, and with 64GB of storage, I don’t have to worry about filling it up yet. It’s considerably smaller than the 3GS, but my decision to purchase an OtterBox case dramatically adds to its size. The OtterBox is a virtual fortress of protection, but makes the iPhone 5 rather clunky.. not unlike a 3GS! I’m quite used to its size, but I keep joking that if I ever do take it out of the OtterBox for some reason, I’m not going to want to put it back in there. It’s just such a sleek form factor.
This phone should do me quite well for the next few years!
