Apple debuted the hotly anticipated iPhone 5 in San Francisco today, and it looks to be worth the wait, if you're into that sort of thing.

With a longer design allowing for a fifth row of icons, it's also 20 percent lighter and 18 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S. The new phone also features ultra-fast wi-fi, a super-fancy new camera, and a twofold CPU speed increase.

Apple is also promising "full console quality" graphics, if you can still get past touch controls for your gaming on the go.

Battery life is going to see improvements: eight hours making calls, and up to 225 on standby.

It's nice to know that Apple hasn't skimped on the features, but can it live up to the expectations of such an opinionated user base?

The iPhone 5 will ship on September 21.

Even better are the cameos by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, which puts them in the unique position of being innovators of dis videos.
