The Globe-Trotting iPhone 5

The Globe-Trotting iPhone 5

In September, app developers were scrambling to optimize their apps for the new iPhone 5 -making sure apps looked right and took advantage of the phone’s larger screen and enhanced features.

Now, those who want a global presence will have to make sure their apps are ready for the iPhone 5 around the world – meaning localization testing will be in order. The latest iPhone will be released in South Korea this Friday, it will hit more new countries next week and the final wave will come later this month – more than 50 countries in all.
