iPhone 5 at a Glance

Designed with a minimalist aesthetic, the aluminum-and-glass iPhone 5 eschews a button-heavy design in favor

of simple controls and a slim figure: It’s a mere 7.6mm thick and weighs only 4 ounces. Here’s a quick rundown

of all the features on the device’s exterior.

A On/Off Button

Press the On/Off button to turn off the device’s screen. You can still take calls, play music, and receive notifications

with it off, but the screen stays blank until you wake it by pressing this button or the Home button. To turn

the device off, hold the On/Off button down until the screen dims and the red ‘slide to power off’ slider appears.

Slide your finger across the switch, and the iPhone powers down. (To turn your device back on, press and hold

this button again until the Apple logo appears.)

You can also decline or silence calls, alerts, and alarms with the On/Off button; press it once to silence an incoming

alert or call; press it twice in succession to send the caller to voicemail.

b Front-Facing FaceTime HD Camera

This 1.2-megapixel camera can shoot 1280 by 960 pixel stills and 720p HD video (1280 by 720 pixels). This camera

was designed primarily for using FaceTime and snapping quick self-portraits.

c Receiver

With no headphones plugged in, this is where you place your ear to listen to incoming calls. Depending on your

region, the iPhone 5 may use wideband audio during telephone calls, which increases the vocal frequencies and

provides for better-sounding conversations.
