    Introducing the iPhone 5S

    Apple unveiled the iPhone 5S — along with a lower cost iPhone 5C — at its Cupertino, Calif. headquarters, marking the first time two iPhone devices launched on the same day.

    iPhone 5S: Gold, Silver and Black

    The iPhone 5S — which comes in gold, silver and black — has the same overall physical design as the previous-generation iPhone 5, but it also has a number of upgrades.

    Sleek and Light

    The iPhone 5S measures in at 4.87 inches high, 2.31 inches wide and 0.30 inches deep. It weighs less than 4 ounces — 3.95 to be exact.

    Touch ID

    The iPhone 5S will include a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, allowing users to unlock their device with the touch of a finger.

    Fingerprint Sensor Technology

    Not only will this be a huge step forward in smartphone protection, it can also be used to make iTunes purchases. Instead of typing in a password every time you buy a song or app, pressing your fingerprint against the scanner will bypass that step.

    App Innovation

    Apple has re-engineered all the built-in apps — such as Mail, Calendar and iPod — for 64-bit architectures.

    Faster Processor

    The iPhone 5S comes with a powerful new processor: the Apple A7. It packs more than 1 billion transistors into a 102mm chip. It can run 64-bit apps (all previous models ran at 32 bits).

    Improved Camera

    The iPhone’s camera comes with major improvements, thanks to new sensors that have 15% more area and an f/2.2 aperture. It also comes with a dual-LED flash and new software features, such as filters and a burst mode that snaps 10 still pictures in one second with automatic image stabilization.

    Photo Collections

    Apple is making it easier to group photos and videos based on time and place. It’s displayed almost like a mosaic on screen.

    Photo Sorting

    Photos can also be sorted by year.

    The panorama feature captures a scene at an impressive 30 frames for each second. This is 50% faster than the iPhone 5.

    HD Video Recording

    The iPhone 5S lets you film in 1080p HD and touts a slow-motion feature at 120 frames for each second in 720p. This means you can take footage in regular speed and slow it down, for example, during a dramatic moment.

    iPhone 5S Cases

    Apple also launched a new lineup of iPhone 5 cases in a variety of colors.

  • Apple-event-19


    The iPhone 5S will go on sale Sept. 20 in nine countries: the United States, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore and the UK. Like previous generations, it will come with 16, 32 or 64GB of storage for $199, $299 and $399, respectively — as long as you sign a two-year contract with AT&T, Verizon or Sprint (T-Mobile’s installment pricing is somewhat different).
