Following Apple’s media event in San Francisco this afternoon to reveal the new iPhone 5 and a slew of other products, the company began detailing devices further on its website. According to Apple’s official specs page for the iPhone 5, the device will ship in two separate CDMA and GSM versions in the United States (the iPhone 4S only shipped as a combined CDMA and GSM unit). Apple will ship the iPhone worldwide in a separate GSM model, as explained below. We suspect LTE has something to do with it…

Apple also detailed the iPhone 5’s new nano-SIM card that was rumored months before the event, but it said the current SIMs will not be available to use on the new device.


You can read more from the event in our iPhone 5 hub or catch up on our liveblog from earlier this afternoon! [Apple]
