Apple Inc. announced Tuesday that it will begin selling the iPhone 5 in Israel on Friday, December 14, as part of a worldwide launch in 50 countries. The iPhone 5 is already on sale in 47 countries. The new iPhone will be on sale throughout the country by Israel's major mobile carriers, and the smartphone can already be purchased in private stores for about NIS 5,000.

The new model's most significant improvement over the iPhone 4S is the screen, which retains its high-quality "Retina" display technology, but has been elongated to 4 inches from 3.5 inches, creating room for five rows of icons instead of the previous four. Despite this the iPhone 5 is thinner than its predecessor; it was billed as the world's thinnest iPhone when it was first announced in September.
