Today is the big day for all Apple fans everywhere, it is the day that we learn what new features will be included in the 7th version of the iPhone. The new iPhone5 has been the most leaked iPhone to date, even with the iPhone4 snafu that happened when Brian J. Hogan left a prototype at a bar does not equal the amount of leaks that have been revealed. This shows how much of a tight ship that Steve Jobs ran when it came to keeping future products under tight wraps. If nothing is leaked out it makes the experience of the keynote more magical. This is what made Steve Jobs shine compared to other people who go on stage to debut their products. Now that we have had so many leaks with the iPhone5 can we really be excited for it?

So far this is what we know about the iPhone5
