The day has finally arrived.
Apple enthusiasts around the world are buzzing as the Northern California-based tech company unveils their latest phone with the iPhone 5 release on Wednesday.
The company hasn't appeared to have lost much speed under the leadership of chief executive officer Tim Cook. Following the death of Steve Jobs, Cook announced the iPhone 4s in October 2011 and sales for the iPhone have remained strong. When Cook introduced the iPhone 4s, he was also introducing himself to millions of tech fans around the world, and helping to maintain the brand awareness of the company beyond Jobs' stewardship.
This time, Cook will deliver a new phone, as many expect specific additions to the iPhone 4s.
The 1 PM eastern time event will look to answer several questions, as Apple execs take the stage.
Will there be more power in the new casing? Will the screen be larger? What adjustments will be made to Siri? When will the phone hit stores? Will T-Mobile be a carrier? What adjustments will be made to the camera? How much will it cost?
Certainly, there will be faster 4G data speeds. Apple is known for being cutting edge, and will likely not let their consumers down with basic upgrades.
The iPhone 4s was an enormous success, as Apple seemed to take an even bigger bite out of the highly profitable smart phone industry.
