Not tried the iphone 5 but I'm sure not much has changed in iOS apart from the the drop down notification bar (which was copied from android btw).

This is the main fact with Apple without Steve Jobs.The all Apple company was run depends upon only one mind of innovation. Now in present day Apple have nothing to do or make some new creature. Now Apple only can do one thing just little re-modify the old product and then release in market with a new box pack and with higher price tag. LOL...

it makes sense to suspect that apple will only slightly update this model, with a complete redesign for iPhone 6, i would imagine that this model would only get a processor upgrade, also the camera would be boosted to around 12mp with some new features, the IOS will be updated to address bug fixes and tweaks but no doubt will still look the same as every other iPhone UI.
They would possibly update the retina display but cant really see them increasing the screen size till number 6

Expect the next version of Android to be EXACTLY like WP8! hahaahaha!!!
