Apple has finally announced the successor to the widely popular 5th generation of its smartphone, iPhone 5s! On a special event at the 10th of September held at Apple’s headquarters, the brand new product was announced, most surely the most anticipated announcement in the tech world in 2013. The new Apple smartphone is nearly identical to the previous one, in typical company fashion, but you will be delighted by the amazing features that were created in order to make this smartphone a truly unique experience.
The new iPhone 5s is exactly the same in shape and size to its predecessor. The display measures 4 inches and has Retina capabilities. The whole body of the new iPhone is made out of magnesium and glass just like the 5 one. The real innovation is actually inside the device. Apple has designed a brand new chip called A7 i.e. the first smartphone chip that has 64-bit architecture that Apple claims is several times faster than it’s predecessor A6.
There was made one big change to the look and design of the home button of the new smartphone. The home button now has an integrated fingerprint scanner that Apple says will be a great and useful feature to any user. It is called Touch ID and represents basically a thin capacitive sensor layered on top of the button. It will help users unlock their device more easily and login to services like iTunes without requiring a password. This can prove to be a great security feature from Apple. Developers on apps on the iOS platform will surely have the opportunity to implement the new fingerprint Touch ID feature on their apps for the new version of iOS 7 that will be first displayed on the 5s but will also be coming to most of the older iOS devices like the iPad 3 and 4, and every iPhone older that the 3GS version.
The new camera on 5s is the first example of a great smartphone camera, and Apple has added a ton of new features to keep ahead of the competition. The camera still has 8 megapixels but the new f/2.2 aperture sensor is now 15 % larger than the camera in the previous iPhone 5. Another exciting feature is the dual LED flashlights on the back of the device. The new flash company claims that will be extremely helpful in preserving a scene’s natural color balance and not over expose the colors. From the software side of the features, there was added stuff like 28-megapixel panorama creator and a burst mode that captures a series of pictures and picks the best one. With all these new specs Apple is trying to keep ahead its competitors, like Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.
iOS 7 was announced the while back at the WWDC conference, and now the new operating system will be making it’s debut on the Apple latest flagship smartphone. The company has made slight changes to the final version of iOS 7, but the cool and useful features like Control Center and parallax scrolling of the notifications are present on the new OS and on the new device. The operating system for 5s is completely redesigned with a modern look and feel and offers great functionality.
And at last, the design can’t be missed. New iPhone is available is gold, space grey and white i.e. actually more than just colors. Housing made in metal and glass and sapphire crystal home button and camera protection - the new device will shine under the sun and catch the eyes. While precious metals are in trend (that always was and stay the same), new Apple smartphone will look trendy and classic at the same time combining the latest technologies and elegant look. With it there is no more problems with accessories selection - iPhone 5s will do it for you perfectly fitting both for casual and white tie dress codes.
