The brand new iPhone 5 looks exactly as the leaks suggested: longer and narrower than the iPhone 4S, but we now know that the iPhone 5 is also considerably thinner (18% thinner than iPhone 4S, the thinnest smartphone in the world in fact) and much lighter (20% lighter than the iPhone 4S). Another new feature of iPhone 5 is that it contains a 4-inch, 1136 x 640 16:9 Retina display. That’s good for users to watch movies on the go, in particular for enjoying 1080p Blu-ray movies. Due to copy protection and format issues, iPhone 5 has no native support for Blu-ray titles, even though they are your legal purchases. In this article, we will present a solution and tell you how to watch Blu-ray movies on iPhone 5.
