Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 Wednesday morning in San Francisco, and rolled out the mobile iOS 6 operating system.

Phil Schiller, the company's marketing chief, introduced the phone as "the most beautiful product we've ever made."

"I'm going to take you through it," he said. "And I hope you'll love it as much as we do."

The phone is 18 percent thinner than the iPhone 4S, its predecessor, and 20 percent lighter -- a departure from news of the new iPad, which was thicker than the one before it.

The four-inch display features more responsive touch sensors and wide-screen video.

The phone's new A6 chip, Schiller said, will double the speed.

Rob Murray from EA joined Schiller on stage to demonstrate the device's graphics and speed as he showed clips from a new racing game.

"We created the ultimate racing experience on iOS, today I'm going to show you the next level," he said. "'Real Racing 3.'"
