The iPhone 5 is the world's thinnest smartphone.

Today, Apple debuted iPhone 5, a new, thinner, lighter version of its popular cell phone.

It’s so thin that Apple said it’s now the thinnest smartphone in the world, and it is 18 percent thinner and 20 percent lighter than iPhone 4S.

The phone also features other improvements on the iPhone 4s, including a 4-inch Retina display, a faster performing A6 chip and wireless internet, a longer battery life and enhanced audio features.

It also comes with a new mobile operating system, iOS 6, with more than 200 new user features including a new Apple-designed Maps app and Facebook integration with its Contacts and Calendar apps.

The iPhone 5 is available for pre-order starting September 14 and Apple stores will start selling it at 8 a.m. on September 21.

Pricing starts at $199 for the 16GB model (with a wireless service plan), the same as the iPhone 4S was selling at until today. That model is now $100 cheaper and the iPhone 4 is free with a two-year cell contract.
