Gadget Lab Show: Apple’s iPhone 5 Wins, Maps App Fails | Gadget Lab | Wired.com.

Apple’s iPhone 5 is just a few days old and, so far, it’s the best-selling iPhone ever. It’s also one of thefastest, most powerful handsets ever. It’s mighty stylish, too.

Our resident Apple reporter, Christina Bonnington, gets her hands on a new blacked-out iPhone 5 and, along with iPhone 4S owner Roberto Baldwin, compares the new and the old in this episode of the Gadget Lab Show. There’s a lot of newsy newness here — bigger display, thinner chassis, an aluminum panel replacing the back glass, the wonder of iOS 6 and, of course, the complete and utter fail that is Apple’s Maps app.

Christina and Roberto break down the good and the bad on the hardware and software. Take a look and stay tuned for Christina’s full, in-depth written review of both the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.
