iPhone 5S – What’s New

Innovative Operating system
The 5s is powered by iOS 7, the updated version that comes with completely redesigned user interface and hundreds of new features.
iOS 7 will be rolled out to the general public on September 18.

Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor
As it is built into the home button, Touch ID lets you easily lock and unlock the iPhone. It also lets you approve purchases.

Powerful 64-bit Architecture Chip
To provide top performance, the 5S comes with a 64-bit A7 chip. It also comes with a M7 motion coprocessor; it’s purpose is to offload work from the A7 chip by gathering data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.

Retina Display
4-inch Retina display; 1136-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi; 800:1 contrast ratio.

Storage and Price
There will be three models to choose from: a 16Gb, a 32GB, and a 64GB model. The suggested retail price for these models is $199 for the 16Gb one, $299 for the 32GB one, and $400 for the 64Gb one.

Improved Camera
The 8MP iSight camera comes with a larger f/2.2 aperture and a larger sensor with 1.5μ pixels for better sensitivity and low-light performance.
The camera features a new True Tone flash that adjusts color and intensity so photos taken with a flash appear more natural.

Slo-Mo Videos
The 5s can record 1080p HD videos at 30 FPS. The exciting thing is that it can also record slo-mo videos.

Dimensions, Body, Colors
The dimensions of the new 5S are: 4.87 inches high, 2.31 inches wide, 0.30 inches deep; 3.95 ounces heavy.
The smartphone comes with an anodized aluminum body, with diamond cut chamfered edges.
The 5s will be available in three colors: Space Gray, Gold, Silver.



iPhone 5S Cases

For $39 (suggested retail price) you can get a premium leather case for the 5S. These cases are available in six colors: beige, black, blue, brown, yellow and red.



“iPhone 5s is the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, delivering desktop class architecture in the palm of your hand,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone 5s sets a new standard for smartphones, packed into its beautiful and refined design are breakthrough features that really matter to people, like Touch ID, a simple and secure way to unlock your phone with just a touch of your finger."
