Battery life improved – 8 hours of talk or browsing time on 3G or LTE, 10 hours on WiFi Same general camera specs as 4S but 40% faster, with better low-light performance for those club nights, lens cover is sapphire lens crystal to be more durable and clear, ability to take 28-megapixel panorama pictures. Takes better videos too, of course. Front-facing camera improved, can do FaceTime over regular network and not just Wi-Fi now. Improved microphones and noise cancelation for clearer calls NEW CONNECTOR CALLED "LIGHTNING" (a play on Thunderbolt, their desktop connection system) – meaning your current accessories may not work with it. But it's 80% smaller. Yay? However, there is an adaptor for that (which will probably cost you). iOS6: New Maps application (no longer Google Maps)
…still no price or release date.
