    It’s here! Apple introduced the iPhone 5 on Wednesday, with Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller calling it “the most beautiful product we’ve ever made.” According to Schiller, the iPhone 5 is the thinnest phone ever made, at 7.6 millimeters—18 percent slimmer than the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5 will have a significantly longer battery life, and its camera will have an eight-megapixel sensor and the ability to take panoramics. The new smartphone comes with a smarter Suri, who will offer sports stats and movie recs, among other things. The gadget hits stores Sept. 21, with prices starting at $199 for 16 gigabytes.
