The new iPhone 5S is available in silver, gray and gold. Although very similar to iPhone 5, it comes with many novelties such as fingerprint scanner (Touch ID), new A7 processor, improved iSight camera with 8MP, etc. The A7 processor is 64-bit, for the first time on the smartphone market. Apple also introduces iOS7.
On September 10, new Apple top model and direct successor to iPhone 5 was presented and named iPhone 5S. iPhone 5S is made of high quality aluminium, offering attractive design along with a number of amazing innovations.
iPhone 5S: same design, new features
Although iPhone 5S looks identical to the iPhone 5 (in addition to the new colours), it offers a number of innovations, such as a 64-bit A7 processor, a dual LED flash, improved camera and a fingerprint scanner. iPhone 5S is 7.6 mm thick and weighs only 112g. It will be available in three colours - silver, grey and gold.
iPhone 5S uses a new Apple A7 processor, twice as fast as the iPhone 5 processor. A7 is the first 64-bit processor in a smartphone ever. As for the battery life, Apple promises 250 hours of standby time. Another interesting iPhone 5S feature is a new motion processor called M7, which makes motion measurement data from accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. This continuously measures the motion data and thus makes a new generation of health and fitness apps possible.
The new iPhone 5S comes with a fingerprint scanner integrated in the Home button, named Touch ID, which is a very interesting innovation. The sensor is 170 microns thin, has a resolution of 500 pixels per inch and can measure subcutaneous skin layers. The sensor is built into the home button and has a stainless steel ring, you only need to touch it; it is not necessary to press the button. Touch ID is deeply integrated into iOS 7 and makes it possible to make iTunes purchases simply by putting your finger on the scanner. Touch ID by Apple is easy to set up and can read multiple fingerprints.
The new iSight camera in the iPhone 5S comes with Apple-designed lens with five elements and an f/2.2 aperture. It has an active sensor area that is 15% larger. iOS 7 allows users to automatically adjust the white balance and exposure. iOS 7 automatically selects the sharpest of a series of pictures, because the iPhone 5s can quickly take multiple photos at once. There is a new dual flash named True Tone, which solves the problem of clashing colour temperatures. True Tone, for example, makes sure that you get natural skin tones. The camera has automatic image stabilization and a burst mode to shoot 10 frames per second. This happens as long as you hold down the button and is suitable for photos of children, for example. You can save multiple photos from this series.
