According to Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide product marketing Phil Schiller, the iPhone5 is the thinnest iPhone they have ever made, and weighs just 112 grams. It is 20 percent lighter than the iPhone 4S. The software and engineering that went into this product is the most challenging their team has ever taken on.
