Well, that’s all folks. It’s about 10pm PST here in the United States, meaning most retail stores are closed, or closing, and the long-awaited iPhone 5 launch day has finally come to an end.

A lot went on over the past 14 hours, as we saw everything from unboxings, to comparison tests, to jailbreaks. So in case you missed anything, we put together this wrap-up of today’s events…

The day started off right, with iDB’s iPhone 5 unboxing. Jeff was first on the team to get his hands on the device, and he went right to work doing what he does best: making videos.

Here’s all of our hands-on iPhone 5 videos:

As the day went on, we learned a lot about Apple’s latest smartphone and some of its new features. And if you purchased an iPhone 5 today, or are planning on it, you should really check this stuff out.

    @Jeff
    I’m pretty sure all those fancy videos didnt come without some hicups while making them, maybe you could compile some funny moments from here and there and make a funny ass bloopers vid

    Just an idea…

  • Jeff, can the nano sim you made that day works on iPhone 5?

    • Bob

      Nope, it was an epic fail haha! That’s why he’s gone quiet about it.

  • hey jeff, i was wondering if you could do a video covering the facebook integration in ios 6 it would be helpfull.

  • genXhippie

    All you posters referring to Jeff, fyi he did not write this article. The Codster did. As a result, Jeff probably isn’t going respond to your post(s).

  • Millions of people went to buy a new iphone 5 and lost their way home using its map. 😀

  • Why don’t you showcase some highlights on the new iOS Maps? I’m suuuuure there’s a lot of positive comments on it, like “thank God I didn’t use the Apple Maps, or else I’d be 10 miles falling off a ledge” or something..
