[credit provider=”Apple”]

Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 today—a slightly larger update to the iPhone lineup.There weren’t a whole lot of surprises, because most of the details about the phone had already leaked onto the Internet by the time it was announced.

Here’s the short, short version: bigger phone, more icons, bigger screen, faster processor, better camera and the new operating system.

We’ve collected a bunch of images of the new device, so you can check it out from every angle.
