And it has a sixteen by nine aspect ratio. It's even though the phone feels a similar size out relatively compared to the last iPhone is a little bit longer -- of a wider. But this apps that are inside it can fit inside that screen -- the -- black bars on the side. The new redesign apps take advantage of that longer screen. And be able to show you more real estate when you're typing emails larger videos without as much letter boxing and it generally crisper experience. Plus the iPhone is thinner 18% thinner is 20% lighter when you hold it in your hands it actually feels a lot less -- surprisingly sound. And there is an all metal back on the side here and it gives a very sturdy compact deal. The whole thing has been engineered a little different ways and one of them of course is that new lightning connector here smaller. And easier to plug in accommodating. Bigger more powerful speakers and that this new iPhone does come with four GL TE and the claims that the battery life is going to be even better than before.
