Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 today, but most of the new features weren't much of a surprise. Unlike previous years, the rumor mill got most things right.

So, what didn't make the rumor cut? Perhaps a better camera. The iPhone 5 does actually have a better camera, even though it has the same 8 megapixel resolution as the iPhone 4S. Improvements include 1080p video with image stabilization and improved low-light capabilities. Add iOS 6's ability to stitch together panoramic photos, and you get a camera and phone that should be fun to use.
Apple also showed off new iPods, including the iPod touch and iPod nano. The new touch mimics many of the capabilities of the iPhone 5, but the nano got the most unexpected facelift, including a longer and larger multi-touch display. Even the iPod shuffle got an update, but only in available colors; otherwise, it's the same hardware as last year's model.
